i dont know about thatsuet,
but suet from UK is from beef and birds eat meat as in worms and bits of other birds, and bits of corposes in the nature so it makes sense.. A good friend used to give his parrot tiny bits of meat, not everyday but often... and occasionally to canaries..
So if the seed is in beef suet,( there is also vegetable suet, not sure what thats made from),
then its edible yo humans.. minus the seeds...
But as Maw said it might be used to keep the seeds in a block...

I think suet is what holds the seeds and nuts and so forth together in the blocks. Or it was at one time.

I never realized people ATE the suet... Or are the blocks of fat and seeds I buy for my birds just named that and not really that?

Lisa, I started eating a lot more fat a few weeks ago. I've eaten quite a bit of fat since I started eating low carb several years ago, but have been making a point of eating less protein and more fat just recently. My food tracker is public, if you'd like to take a look at it. Ignore the days that are clearly off plan!

I used to think the same lisalooper..
when i try to explain my friends and family back in england they dont understand now either..
But I and the rest on lchf or keto, aree walking examples...
I lost 10 kilo's in 1 1/2 months and am still losing each day.. I'm at the weight from when i was a prediabetic now and they reduced my meds, and hope fully at the end of next month some more.. I've only been doing lchf now just over 2 months..
I started very cautiously but quickly got into it.. I dont measure at all i just make sure i eat enough fat,( full milk,butter on cooked veges, cream in smoothies or with some berries, if i'm on a dairy free day then advocado with lemon, or in a smoothie) as then i dont feel hungry..
I also just make alot of veges, and am gonna try some deserts or cakes with almond or coconut flour this week, as it s my B-day thursday gonna be 60 so need to make something i can eat for my visitors...
Lots of luck with your diet

My grandma used to make suet and we were bought up with suet on bread instead of jam etc.. was from the after the 2 world wars...
My grandma and mom made nearly everything from suet.. or lard...
grandma used to lift it off the beef after cooking it down.. thats it, it is used in some xmas puds but primarily the sponge puds that are steamed on the stove..
spotted dick is a well known one in england.. its still made with suet...

I'm still wondering how to get all that fat in one day which makes me chuckle because at my weight you wouldn't think that would be an issue.

Had to look it up, never knew the difference:

Suet /ˈs(j)uːɨt/ is raw beef or mutton fat, especially the hard fat found around the loins and kidneys.

Uses[edit]
The primary use of suet is to make tallow, although it is also used as an ingredient in cooking, especially in traditional puddings, such as British Christmas Pudding. Suet is made into tallow in a process called rendering, which involves melting and extended simmering, followed by straining, cooling and usually by repeating the entire process. Unlike tallow, suet that is not pre-packed requires refrigeration in order to be stored for extended periods.

At the Constitutional Convention, George Mason asked: “Shall any man be above Justice? Above all shall that man be above it, who can commit the most extensive injustice? . . . Shall the man who has practiced corruption & by that means procured his appointment in the first instance, be suffered to escape punishment, by repeating his guilt?”

I would modify that a bit. Pasture raised meat is definitely better but can be very expensive. If you can afford it, eat pasture raised. If you can't, eat conventional raised meat and supplement with Omega-3.

I am able to get beef fat for free from a local farmer who raises grass-fed beef. He has no use for the fat and is just as happy to give it to me as to throw it away. I render it and make tallow (or is it suet? I can never remember which is the fat and which is the rendered product.) which I use in cooking. I have to buy the fat or lard from the farmers who raise pastured pigs, but it's not very expensive and it's good and good for you. The more fat there is in the meat, the more benefit you'll get out of pastured animals.

That being said, there are those who would say to throw away the fat from grain-fed or -finished meat. I'm not in a position to do so.

That would come out to about 29g of protein per meal at 3 a day. 29g in one meal seems like more than enough. I never really bothered to track fat grams so I don't have a base line to compare it to. Just make sure you are getting good clean fats like olive, avocado and coconut. Try to avoid fat from factory farmed meat, (say that 5xfast) their diet is not optimal and the fat isn't as good quality nutritionally speaking as pastured grass finished meats are.

That looks about right. Remember that 25g of protein does not mean 25g of meat. Meat includes water and other things that add weight. For instance, 3 ounces of skinless chicken breast contains 19.3g of protein and 2.3g of fat. But that 3 ounces actually WEIGHS 85g. Lots of water.

I posted this on the Keto Clarity team but figured I would post this here too since this team is much more active. I have read some post by others here that are on a keto diet and was hoping you could shed some light.

I have been researching keto and I would like to give it a try. I used the keto calculator on the ruled.me website and I'm scratching my head over my results. I have over 100 pounds to loose and my body fat percentage is pretty high but could this be correct?

Daily:
1812 calories
20 carbs
87g protein = 3.07 ounces
154g fat = 5.43 ounces

Ok, the calories and carbs seem reasonable but just over 3 ounces of protein daily that seems low could that be correct? and over 5 ounces of fat how does one eat 5 ounces of fat a day?
