If you truly eat based on what your cravings are - and you have cravings for a reason - you almost certainly won't wind up eating 65% fat. You'll probably eat around 33/33/33 - roughly equal macronutrients. Yes, maybe there will be some variance - maybe you'll be 35/30/35, maybe 40/20/40, 20/40/40...whatever. But you won't be eating meat and vegetables only and drowning them in refined fat. That's learned behavior born out of fear. You have to learn how to "modify" your cravings. Cravings for cookies and candy may simply be cravings for glucose, so eat fruits and starches instead. Cravings for ice cream may be cravings for fat, so eat meats, eggs and cheeses. When you exclude a macro you increase your chances of developing cravings for junk foods. The way I've found to eliminate cravings altogether is to eat sufficient calories consisting of healthy fats, proteins, starches and fruits. When you give your body all the building blocks it needs and not force it to convert one macro to another out of desperation, it's happiest.
