Great choices for fats include fatty cuts of meat, salmon, butter (or ghee), coconut oil, avocados, olive oil, lard, and beef tallow.
Nuts have a less than ideal fatty acid breakdown and should not be used as a primary source of fuel.
Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
Most nuts are very high in Omega-6 and very low in Omega-3. So consuming lots of nuts will put this ratio out of balance.
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".
