Yeah, more fat as a percentage of your diet. You can keep the carbs (the fruit, the veggies etc) the same if you want. You don't need to be in ketosis, but having more fat in your diet will help you with inflammation, energy and mood. I have spoken to so many people who are not even on the paleo or primal diet whose moods improved 100% when they cut out grains and added more healthy fats.

You need some of all kinds of fats, not predominantly one or the other. And you do not need to binge on them, just get enough.
