I have never added in fat. I just eat meat that is high fat and am good to go!

Yes, heavy cream contains all the fat from the milk and once it is removed from whole milk you have skim milk (fat-free milk) left.
Half and half, as the name says, is half heavy cream and half milk. About 1/2 of milk is the milk fat, depending on the breed of cow and where in the lactation process the cow is.
Milk contains considerable amounts of lactose (milk sugar), which makes it higher in carbs and not as filling as cream, which is just the fatty part of the milk.
In yogurt the lactose has been eaten mostly by the good bacteria and therefore plain yogurt is lower carb than milk.

I pour about 1/4 heavy cream into a large cup of coffee. I eat coconut oil by the spoonful or cook veggies in several tablespoons of it. Also lots of olive oil on salads.

I found some coconut oil that stays clear liquid and add about 1T of that into my protein shakes each morning. There is HWC to use as well. Several cuts of beef have a lot of fat in them - Ribeye, short ribs, 80/20 ground beef, just to name a few that come to mind.

I'd skip the turkey bacon, it's actually too lean. Coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, full fat dairy, chicken skin, lard, don't trim the fat from beef - those are the easiest methods. If you still come up short you can actually take coconut oil capsules.

Coconut oil is great. I use it in everything.

avocado, olive oil, and nuts are good sources, i think.
