    That's not high in fat at all. That's about the ratio of fat in meat. Some low carb high fat diets advocate 75% or more fat. You are doing fine. You're letting the CW heebie-jeebies about infiltrate you.

    I average about 60% fat. I usually have trouble getting my fat load to that point. The more fat you eat, the quicker you get sated. I have a heavy whipping cream addiction. Look at that on FitDay. Everytime my wife catches me slurping some from the container, she just rolls her eyes and makes gagging noises...

    If you have a Costco around you, check their dairy section. Mine carries 1/2 gallon organic heavy whipping cream for something like $2.99 or $3.59, which is ridiculously low!

    I know that most of the folks on this forum embrace high fat, which is something neither I nor my husband do. We've been stricter paleo for around 8 months, and we only eat lean meat and in general use little fat (coming from sources like oily fish, olive oil, coconut oil, avocados or occasional nuts). Neither of us feel good eating higher fat - in fact, if he eats a dinner that's high in animal fat, he is usually up half the night and then doesn't want to eat the next day because he feels nauseated by the thought of food. Not everyone thrives on high fat, just like not everyone thrives on eating lots of fruit - what's too high in fat for one person might be just right for another.

    If you feel healthy and you're getting results with the way you're eating, then there's no need to worry. If your health goals stall, then you could try reducing fat or calories.

    Your ratio looks good. I eat a little higher fat than that, but that's just due to my total calorie intake being much higher.

    I thought I was the only one who doesn't love a lot of fat. The thought fatty meat makes me ill. I do believe for many (most?) people it is really good...but I just feel ill eating it.
