What are some easy ways to eat more fat?

I'm brand new to paleo - 10 days in - and I love it, but I'm having difficulty eating enough fat (and I never thought I'd be saying that in my life). I have a sneaking suspicion that while my carbs are good, my protein to fat ratio is too high. I've been adding EVOO to salads, snacking on nuts, etc., but I don't want to bump my calories TOO high since I am also trying to lose weight at this point. Any suggestions?

Hahaha! Nice insults, seriously good stuff lol. You seem to be obsessed with penises and shoving things up people's asses, you do know that they have better websites than this one for that kind of stuff right? By the way, a little physiology for you, the liver is perfectly capable of generating glycogen for the body without carbohydrates, look up gluconeogenesis and glycogenesis. The first creates the glucose from amino acids and glycerol, the other synthesizes the glycogen.

Small penis? Picked on a LOT as a kid? Picked last for basketball? Yes carbohydrates do work for efficient glycogen replacement.

Its official, you're fucking retarded, here's what you wrote dumbshit: "I know what works for me and I'm about 100% sure it works for others". I like your style of using bullshit anecdotes, thats what weak bitches do when they can't back shit up with real science.

You fucking loser when did I say I know what works for others? Reread my comment. If you removed your head from your ass you would see how many people have left the high fat low carb diet for more carbs and have continued to lean out, sleep better, increase testosterone etc etc

"I know what works for others" - enough said, you're a fucking dumbass. Keep eating up that bullshit broscience. Ketosis might suck for you because you're a weak ass pussy who loves carbs, just don't assume evryone else is a weak little bitch like you.

WTF are you talking about? I still get the majority of my calories from fat 40-50% but I get in via meat not tablespoons of coconut oil or butter. FYI I was in ketosis and it sucked for me which proves my body doesn't run on 70-80% fat I need carbs as I work on my feet 50-70 hours a when plus train hard3-5 hours a week. Keep your links of studies and stick them up your ass. I know what works for me and I'm about 100% sure it works for others. Paleo is a whole foods lifestyle not a keto diet. N=1

I keep seeing that in the store and passing on it because it's only sold in a like 1/4 stick singles. I'll have to give it a try anyway.

Speaking of kerrygold, this is good stuff. I just finished a fistful of asparagus cooked in a pan of it with some soy sauce / salt / pepper. It's an easy way to get some fat without a bunch of carb / protein getting in the way.

I do have some trouble digesting fats. Could you be a little more specific about digestive bitters? I get really tired of food sitting in my stomach for like 5-7 hours just because it's fatty.

Just for starters:

Drench veggies and potatoes in grass fed butter (Kerrigold can usually be purchased in bulk at Costco). I mean like an ounce of butter or more to a single medium sized potato (salt and pepper to taste), or an ounce or two in a big bowl of steamed veggies.

Wasteful, but try eating more yolk and less whites when eating eggs. I generally consume about 30% of the whites and 100% of the yolk.

Eat macadamia nuts. They are the safest nut to eat in relatively larger quantities.

Never underestimate the power of bacon. And save the grease.

Don't forget lots of avocado in your salad along with the olive oil... Could also add feta cheese or whatever if you do cheese.

Make a smoothie consisting of 30-40% coconut milk/cream (the stuff from a can, yeah) and consider also adding avocado to said smoothie.

And many more on channel 4...

Don't get too carried away of course with the whole VLC High-Fat thing.

And don't forget to watch your omega 6 intake and balance all that with some good animal-based (mostly from fish) omega 3 sources. Plant omega 3's aren't as bioavailable.

Avocados, coconuts and coconut accesories, nuts, pork belly, lard, butter, duck fat, tallow, olives, and paleo mayo are all good. If you're lazy like me, save yourself the trouble and drink some extra virgin olive oil straight up, don't let the fat-hating undercover pritikin lovers on this site make you afraid of oleic acid, it is one of the most bening sources of energy available.

imho don't get carried away with adding large amounts of fat. As stated above get 80/20 beef, but please don't take tablespoons of oil or fat to the face that is definitely over doing it. If you are short on calories add a piece of fruit or a tuber. Don't think taking LARGE amounts of added fat is healthy.

A tablespoon of coconut oil isn't bad at all. A pat of butter is strange at first, but really not so bad at all.

Supplementing with a good quality fish/cod liver oil during meals is a good strategy. It will also help counteract the extremely high omega 6:3 ratios seen in the modern diet. Duck fat is another (super delicious) way of getting some good fats into a cooked meal. I'd also suggest being a little (just a little) heavy handed with cooking oils (eg. olive, coconut) and leaving the fat on when consuming meats. In terms of plants, nuts and seeds will provide some dietary fat, though if your looking to correct omega 3's and optimize digestability of fat, the above options are more viable (plant based omega 3's are not absorbed well). Bitter herbs (also known as digestive bitters) stimulate the liver by releasing bile for fat digestion via the vagus nerve, and might be helpful in optimizing digestion of fats. Any signs of gastrointestinal upset after a fatty meal would indicate an excess of fat, and a sign to cut down. GL

You can start with eating fattier beef, so maybe 80-20 instead of 85 or 93. Also use chicken thighs instead of breast, and eat a lot of salmon and eggs. I also add coconut oil to my protein shakes, olive oil would also work. Snack on nuts.
