Absolutely on the fats! I found a marvelous new (to me) butter recently: Amish Roll Butter. I could sit and eat it with a spoon, it's that good! It makes imported butters seem like bargain-basement store brands.
But do jettison all the low/reduced/no - fat ANYthing you have in the pantry. Eat chicken with the skin, preferably thighs. I love wings, too. Put coconut oil in anything you can think of! Whole cream; raw milk (if you can get it), the most lusciously fatty steaks you can find! I love ribeyes, and trim off the super-marbled fatty ends *first* (to eat, not to discard)! yum
So far as the amount of fat in your diet - it varies by individual. Most restricted-carb diets measure carbs by grams, but the other macros by %. Your fats should be 60-80%, and your protein about 20-ish% So it depends on how you have your daily caloric intake set. I saw a mention somewhere that protein should approximate (in grams) what your projected goal weight is. For me, that works out to up to 130g protein, which is more than I can usually accomplish. None of these values are set fast, except for your carbs. Everything revolves around that point, with your remaining calories divided 80-20 (or thereabouts) between fats and protein. You'll have to fiddle with it to find what's right for you.
Do read up on the books listed here. I find that sometimes reading it helps set it in my mind. Not only that, if you understand the rationale, it's a lot easier to go with it.
Good luck! You'll figure it out
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
