High fat not working for me

Trying to increase my fat intake I must say I don't have a problem with fat but I don't particularly enjoy eating it (I'd rather the taste of a leaner piece of meat over a fatty one, for example). I'm feeling really sluggish and I am getting really low energy levels. Also I'm finding fat just doesn't fill me up. After a high fat low carb dinner I'm still hungry. I would consider myself fat adapted, I only eat 3 times a day (sometimes 2) and no shakiness etc between meals like I used to get in my old 'sugar burner' days...but I just wonder if perhaps some people don't really need a lot of fat and perhaps function well with lower levels?

Jeez, I thought I was the only one. If your really active, trying to sustain energy on mainly fat is a bad idea, and sometimes, even less active people do better on low glycemic carbs. Are there any issues with your thyroid, because that's a very common problem for very low carbers. If you fell better on carbs, try eating some starchy tubers or maybe even some sprouted/fermented grain if your stomach can handle it, and no, sprouted grains won't kill you, nor make you sick if your stomach can handle it, but if they don't work for you, just eat some tubers and cut out the sprouted grains.
