sour cream
cream (instead of milk, or as thickener for gravy)
cheese
cream cheese (search for "fat bombs")
eggs (the yolks contain the fat)
mayonnaise (full fat, not salad dressing type)
egg salad with mayo
olives
80%lean/20%fat hamburger (or 75/25 if you can find it)
macadamia nuts (highest in fat of all nuts)


...what I could think of off the top of my head. Mayo and olive oil are the two fats that I add to many things, including hot vegetables, to up the fat.

I have plenty in my coffee, 1-2 tablespoons of butter, 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream, and 1 heaping tablespoon of coconut oil in a 14 ounce mug of coffee.

Bacon and Eggs for Breakfast
Cheese and Salami for lunch
Hamburger (70% 30%fat) steak cooked in olive oil and butter. Quick Fried Asparagus (fried in butter) sprinkled with salt. Baked Acorn Squash with butter, touch of salt, touch of artificial sweeter...

Eat meat with every meal, eggs once a day, and coffee or tea with heaving whipping cream....just with that you are well on your way to fat increase....
Don't forget Avocados are a great fat veggie!

Snacks....fried pork rinds dipped in salsa, protein and fat! or a few almonds, or pecans, or walnuts....all add fat!
I see a lot of newbies talking about how they cannot eat this or they don't like this or......etc.

I realize that some people have food allergies or other medical problem that they must deal with. But others, I think, want to live and eat like they did prior to being a diabetic. Not a real good plan, change is necessary to maintain one's health....

I had a teacher in Grade School who always said to us, "Can't Never did Nothing” at that age I really didn't get it. As I have grown I don't use the word "Can't” and guess what....I CAN!

Thanks to the OP for this post and @VeeJay @mbuster @div2live thank you guys for the great answers and replies.
Great information to help us with a myriad of food choices. I don't understand them all right now as Heavy Cream and Cream Cheese both sound like some great additions to my life once I can wrap my head around it. I would also like to add mayonnaise back into my life as my tuna fish with just mustard and horseradish is getting boring.

I have no idea what to do with an avocado as I bought two a little while ago and they both went bad before I could use them.

This journey is becoming a full time occupation as first I have had to drop the baggage of malnutrition as taught by medicine and big pharma, wrap my head around High Fat as Low Carb is a no brainer.

A can of tuna, sprinkled with lemon juice, Louisiana hot sauce, and a couple of tablespoons of mayo. Add a few pork rinds and a glass of tea and I'm in heaven.

Avocados I have had them peeled and sliced on a plate, sprinkled with sea salt and lime juice and ate them with breakfast, lunch or dinner. I have just cut them in half, pulled the seed, and added salt and lime juice and ate them with a spoon right out of the skin. Best of all I love them as guacamole. As far as picking them and knowing when to use them, I leave that to BH (my Better Half), I just eat them. I know she slices around them longways to the seed, splits them, takes the seed out of the half it stays with, then pops them out of the skin.

Hard Boiled Eggs.....

A lot of folks shy away from these and some because how the yolks turn off color grey! Doesn't look good and really have a 'dry feel' in the mouth....I recently learned how to cook eggs with a nice yellow creamy yolk that is very tasty! It also is very easy.

Put the eggs in a pan and add water, covering the eggs completely. You can cook as many as you can put in the pan, without stacking them on top of each other. You can also do only one egg following the exact steps....

Start out with the eggs in a pot covered with tap water on top of the stove. Be sure to cover the eggs completely with water. Turn the heat to Med High. Let the water come to a rolling boil! As soon as the rapid boil starts, turn off the heat and cover the pot, leaving the pot of the stove top. Set your timer to 20 minutes. At the end of 20 minutes, move the uncovered pot to the sink and begin flushing the eggs with cold water while in the pan, once the pan feels cool on the bottom, add as much ice as you can to top off the eggs in the pan. Wait 10-15 minutes.... (using this cooling technique makes the eggs peal cleanly)

You will then have fully cooked hard boiled eggs with nice bright yellow yolks, that are creamy and fresh. Great for making deviled eggs or just eating with lunch with a touch of salt and pepper....Eggs = Protein and Fat!

Tried throwing some coconut oil in my tea yesterday and that will stay as part of my menu, I eat coconut oil straight out of the jar, will eat butter straight to when I just want to immediately load up on fat.

@mbuster, you are starting to sound like a Southern gourmet chef, sure you aren't a cousin of Justin Wilson, as they sure do be wonderments, they dat do. LOL!

@VeeJay, thanks for the search assistance, much appreciated.

@div2live, thanks, I love hardboil eggs, sometimes I just don't have the patience to peel them, but I throw on some pepper, cayenne and I am in heaven. They do make a quick meal once boiled and I am always searching for better methods to cook and peel them. Since I am widowed I would have to make the deviled eggs myself, but I love them so much I could almost go through a tray all by myself.
