What are your picks for choosing fats to maintain a lean body mass. I've read in multiple forums and some articles that people lean out more with avacado, oils etc instead of nuts. I'm using almonds as a main fat source....thoughts? I am female.

I tend do disagree, Virgin Coconut contains high amounts of Lauric acid which has been shown to improve serum lipid profiles. I eat 2-3 Avocado daily, but I also cook in grass fed beef lard.

No particular fat will cause greater leaning out at a given caloric level. However, when attempting to lean out, the name of the game is appetite and satiety. In those two departments, I've found that animal fat is king and that all other fats are inferior.

I use fatty beef. Then I cook my vegetables in any of the fat that is left. Then I lick the plate to make sure to get the rest.

I've been doing a lot of Tex-Mex style meals, spiced fatty ground beef and avocados. The trick is eating high nutrition foods with enough fat that you feel happily full even when you take in fewer calories than you require, so you start digging into your personal fat stores. There isn't a magic formula as part of this is psychological. Omega-3 fats are healthier, so you probably want to do something to work more of those into the mix.

I've read a lot about people using coconut oils for rapid ketosis induction (fat burning), but someone else will have to fill you in on the details of that. Fat is the key though, it make you feel really satisfied. For folks like me who have a whole lot of fat around the middle, it is liberating when you finally persuade your brain that you can't possibly starve because you have several months of meals literally strapped to you that your body can dip into any time it wants. Fasting/calorie restriction gets really easy when you make that breakthrough.
