Hi BombshellBee! Welcome!
First - I think we are all deathly affraid of fat when we start this journey. It has been drilled into us that FAT is the enemy to healthy and wellness. You have to do the research - look at the statistics of how our nation has gotten fatter since the government gave us the wonderful food piramid of the 50s. Cut fat - eat whole grains blah blah blah! Now we're a country full of fat, lazy diabetics with high blood pressure and high cholesterol! Our bodies were designed to eat real fat - not the vegetable squeezed junk in most all processed foods.
Just remember that fat contains twice the calories per gram as carbs and proteins, so you can't eat the same volumn as on a low fat diet. But you also won't need to - cuz fat fills you up faster and longer than carbs and proteins.
Have you read The Primal Blueprint? If not - I strongly encourage you to do so - cuz it has all the basics to get you going. Good luck on your journey! This is a great forum with lots of help and support.
