    Fatty cuts of meat will be more than 60% fat by calories, so start by choosing good fatty bone in cuts of meat. From there it pretty much falls into place. I probably eat about 65% of my calories/day from fat without even trying to "add it in".

      Your best sources of fats are grass-fed beef, butter and cream, pastured chickens, eggs and pork and cold water fish. You are trying to do this vegetarian. You will not succeed.

          I have been keeping track so that I can gauge how much I eat over time and on average I was surprised to find out that I eat 60% from fat....with no nuts....and as you say "without even trying." Amazingly I am getting leaner.

            flaxseed though is very high in omega 3!

              yes, it is. here's a link to the omega 3 and 6 contents in various foods, if anyone is interested.

              personally i'd rather eat a bunch of salmon, but that's me.

                ALA is the worst type of O3, though. Not very useable, and very prone to oxidation.
