    Not enough fat - what should I be eating?

    What can I eat to get some good fat without a ton of protien? On workout days I am supposed to be eating about 90g of fat to keep my macronutrient balance straight but I always end up with too much protien and still not enough fat...
    It is always too early to quit.

    Pork belly is pretty good. Or pork butt roast. You could also have avocados, macadamia nuts and pour olive oil or other fats on your salads and vegetables.

    Eat more butter, coconut oil, cream, cheese, olive oil and avocados. You can mix butter in with shredded meat and get a pseudo paté.

    You can be hardcore and eat it by the spoonful or add it to your coffee aka Bullet Proof Coffee.
    Poke it quickly, with a stick.

    80/20 ground beef has a good fat to protein ratio (65%fat by calorie Calories in Ground Beef 80/20 - Nutrition Facts & Other Nutritional Information | LIVESTRONG.COM). Most fatty cuts of meat will get you most the way there (more than 65% fat by calorie). If it is a lean less tasty cut (like chicken breast....bleh) just dip it in some butter.

    OP, are you calculating the actual caloric load of the fat you are eating?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I would recommend lamb shoulder curry, cooking in a can of full fat coconut milk. The pot I have downstairs is SWIMMING in fat... I think I shouldn't have browned the meat in pork lard... *shifty eyes*
