My main source is animal fat. Pork fat is my favorite. Eggs are yummy. Fish too. Bacon, prime rib...
Otherwise, olives, olive oil, avocados, coconut oil.
Mosty animal fat for me though.
I realize that PB emphasizes fats ( they are our best friends ) but I was wondering if it really makes a difference depending on where you get it from, for example: nuts, avocados, olive & coconut oils & fats from meat. What do you guys usually get the majority of your fats from?
Pork/beef fat have the best fatty acid composition, fish for Omega-3's is good, other animal fats including pastured dairy fat is good, despite not being totally primal-authentic. Eggs, especially free-range eggs, are great.
Coconut oil is my first choice for a non-animal fat. Avocado is pretty good. Chocolate is great as well, mostly good saturated fat and monounsaturated, with very little PUFA.
Nuts tend to have terrible Omega-6:Omega-3 ratios, but among nuts I think macadamia are my favorite. They have a better Omega-3 ratio than most nuts, and the majority of their fat is monounsaturated with a little saturated fat and very little PUFA.
Overall, minimizing PUFAs is my goal when it comes to fats.
Meats, fish, and eggs. Nuts and avocados and coconut. Olives. Olive, palm, sesame, and coconut oils. I eat bacon only about 2x per week but save the grease for cooking.

I typically do olive oil and coconut oil to cook with, plus I buy higher fat content meats (much to my mom's chagrin). I like eggs, I eat about 3-5 per day (although I don't know if that is good or not, i am really new) and I like bacon... I eat that at least once per day (once again... is that good? IDK!) I like a handful of nuts per day. Avocados are good but I don't like the texture much so I throw them in stuff sometimes... That's it really.
Live Like No One Else
I love chicken skin!!! I could eat it all day long, i dunno if that is weird. But i just finished cooking up some leg quarters, and I was literally scrapping the fat drippings off the bottom, and eating it up! My number two would have two be avocado. I eat them buy themselves when I have the extra money to spear! I just picked some up this week and plan on trying this recipes with them!
Very very important not to replace animal fats with oils and nutrient-less ones. Long-chain saturated fat and animal-based omega 3s serve many functions and animals contain tons of nutrients. I eat lot of coconut products and olive oil, but I also realize that these fats do not have any nutrients so then I eat about 1000 calories worth of animal flesh a day, a fair amount of it low mercury seafood, and make sure I get my nutrients from other sources as well.
Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.
