Did i do my body a favor or a disservice by upping the fat content of the meal? (Excluding the fact that my bacon wasnt "grass fed"). do they even do grass fed pork? The eggs were free range, cage free
Unless you have pre or normal hypertension, nothing in the bacon is going to hurt you. Bacon is rich in saturated fats and sodium. Saturated fats are essential to living and sodium isnt terrible provided you drink enough water. I find that I am happier and over eat less when I consume more saturated fats. Plus it tastes awesome.
edit: I eat bacon and eggs nearly every morning and I am currently cutting. The more fats I eat, the better I feel while in a calorie deficit.
