Could you tell me if it's correct and natural to say leave off on something meaning to stop discussing something at a particular point? For example:

In the last class we left off on what saturated fats are, so let's start off from there.

If that's not natural, what would you say? If it is, then what are other alternatives?

The phrase left off on is understandable. You could also use the preposition at - we left off at.

Merriam-Webster leave off
stop, cease
picked up where he had left off

You could also just say We stopped at/on....
