There are many ways to measure the relative healthfulness of foods, fat is calorie dense so it needs to be eaten in moderate quantities, but it is also filling enough to help you stop overeating.  Pork fat is rich in B vitamins and minerals.  The article also lauds it being less saturated than beef/lamb fat, but it also has more Omega 6 and less Omega 3, so which is right for you may vary by your personal health situation.

We’re not suggesting you need to drop the “less healthy” foods in this list, but don’t be afraid to make a bit of lard part of a healthy variety of foods in your diet.
