You can add avocado to almost anything.

Coconut oil mixed with almond butter for a snack.

Don't tell me what you believe; show me what you do and I will tell you what you actually believe.

I love to crisp up chicken skin in the microwave and it gets all crunchy, although some of the fat comes off of it then. You can save that and use it to fry things. I also don't necessarily like fat from say, rib eye steaks if it isn't fairly well charred but I like my steak med rare. So sometimes I will fry up the fat until it is more crispy.

I get lard from a farmer who raises pigs organically and in a pasture. I use a lot of it. I cook my eggs in 2 tablespoons. I add a tablespoon or so per serving to soups. I cook my meat in it.

I use 3 tablespoons of mayo with a can of tuna or 3 eggs or a cup of chicken to make a tuna or egg or chicken salad.

I would say coconut oil would be the best oil to add. I buy extra fatfrom the butcher and melt that for oil. I also fry up fat, that is my babys favorite snack.

I don't like fat on meat so use coconut oil, olive oil, nuts. Before I had to cut out dairy because I'm sensitive to it I would add lots of heavy cream and sour cream to things and eat high-fat cheeses and it was not a problem slowing weight loss for me, in fact I'm struggling now without the dairy fat because all my favorite forms of fat are gone.

Russell and Suz, thanks so much for your reply. I do most of these things. The chicken fat I have to admit I do have a problem with that, only way I could go with the chicken fat is...extra crispy.
I am really glad I asked, due to I was thinking maybe I was doing this wrong.

The meat I buy has big chunks of white fat, I eat that. If you buy the right meat, you do not need to add extra fat. Careful with butter, it is dairy and can slow weight loss. Chicken skin is good too

Cook the eggs in 2-3 T of butter. Cook your meat in olive oil. Eat macadamia nuts, or cream cheese as snacks. You could dice up chicken, or tuna, and mix it with mayo.

I tend to do the first three every day, and my diet is about 70-75% fat,

I have did Adkins many years ago, had great success. But I read something early this morning and I just have to ask. when it is said, ''low carbing is not about eating a lot of protein, but more fat." My question is....just where do you get your fat. Oh I know you can eat the fat from meat, but here again that is protein. I eat boiled eggs, the yolks have fat the whites the protein. So can someone please explain this to me. I would really appreciate it and I bet I am not alone in wanting to know.
Thanks,
Joan
