How Important Are Good Fats on an Alkaline Paleo Diet? – Very Important!

Eating enough good meat fats, butter, ghee, coconut, olive oil is very important. There is a tendency in the those who are on this program to not eat enough especially fats.  We have been told for so long to not eat much fat it's very hard for us to immediately understand that good fats are not at all unhealthy.
