Default How do you get all your fats in a day?

Can someone tell me how you get all the required fats in a day? If I have to swallow another tablespoonful f coconut oil, I'm gonna puke. And drinking Greek dressing isn't much better. I have ate 7.2 carbs, 117.2 fats, and 103.3 protein. My proteins are to high, I know, but where do y'all get your fats? I'm full and really don't want anything else to eat. I have had 2 eggs fried in 1 tablespoon coconut oil 2 servings of ham, 1/2 cup of cantolope, 1 TB mayo( dukes) 14 green olives, 1/4 cup pepperoni, with 4 TB Greek dressing, and just ate 2 TB coconut oil. It's working, but I'm gonna haft start liking cocnut oil better, but on the bright side, I'm not constipated. :vs_laugh hahaha

I dont see bacon and cheese and avacados in your diet

1/2 cup of cantaloupe is about 7g of carbs so be careful with your numbers

I drink two cups of coffee every morning with Heavy Whipping Cream added. I gave up cream in my coffee years ago, do to the 'low fat' thinking of that day! Now I know that is all 'Poppycock'. I love my coffee with cream.....again!

I never eat fried eggs unless they are fried in bacon grease, which I also eat with the bacon. When the eggs are done, I add a slice or two of butter on top, that works well and they taste so....good!

Cheese, cheese, and more cheese! With avocado's wrapped in lettuce, then covered with blue cheese dressing or even mayonnaise sometimes....I frequently add 'cold cuts' that add fat and protein, I watch to make sure the are not to full of nitrates and stuff....some are pretty clean, just watch the labels....

For dinner, Steak, or 70-30 hamburger steak, or pork chops, or Lamb, or chicken with skin on fried (no flour, just fried in butter/oil 50/50 mix) also vegetable covered in butter....and maybe some homemade mashed potatoes (made with cauliflower with gravy thickened using flower made from pork rinds)

I have never taken a spoonful of any fat, coconut or other....I get all my fat from including it in my meals

I also sometimes snack on Fried Pork Rinds, Walnuts or Pecans....all add oils!

I have been doing this since April of 2015! My cholesterol started to move up during the first year, but since then came back down...so my doctor is all in favor of my 'strange diet' that has helped my health profiles in so many ways.....

Avocados are a great source of fat and fiber. I mash up, mix with mayo and salsa, and olive oil, which adds even more fat.

I even whisk mayo into my sugar-free Jello - especially good in lime flavor.

Cream cheese with some peanut butter mixed in - reduces the carbs per serving that come from the peanuts, and increases fats. THIS I can eat by the spoonful.

Breakfast - shredded cheese on my scrambled eggs cooked in about 1 tbls olive oil. 1 oz. cream cheese.
Lunch - avocado; sausage, bacon, maybe cheese on salad. Homemade Mayo. Add nuts, sunflower seeds to salad.
Dinner - butter, nuts, cheese on what I'm eating. Stir fry cooked in olive oil
Snack - cream cheese. Olives (but count them-they do have carbs)

Since I upped my fat, I'm no longer hungry so the snack is just an option now. I'm going to start making some of those fat bombs too. I don't eat just 'oil'. It's part of what I'm cooking. Can't quite get my protein much above 60 though. Have to work on that. I have a cap of 90 mg. of protein.

One of the parameters with my doc was that I include one fruit a day (mostly high in citrus) so I too had cantaloupe today. Yum. Cantaloupe tomorrow and then back to kiwi again.

I DID IT!
I got all my fats in, and all my proteins, I did go about 7 grams over on my proteins. I still had 8 carbs to go, but I ate 10 yesterday. After 50+ days of very low carbs (3-8) it's not easy just going to 18, and probably not e best of ideas.

I'm lucky enough to have lots of fresh low carb berries ripening now, I just finished up strawberries, ( not many this year I redid my patch) black raspberries are still producing, red currants are still hanging in there, red raspberries are starting, followed by 5 large blueberry bushes. So I'm set through August with fresh berries. They seem to treat me good, but I keep a closer check on my BG. Cantolope seems to have little to no effect, watermelons don't either, and I'm glad cause I have lots of them planted in my garden.

I agree, berries are great for vitamin C and mostly are low carb. It's my Mom. I can't seem to get through to her what is low carb or not and can't let all the food go to waste. So, I just make do with what she bought. I still have 7 kiwis left and she bought strawberries today (oh AND a watermelon). I can't win. My Mom is 83 and refuses to be 'trained'. My sister recently passed away and I'm having trouble getting my mom to buy less of the high carb stuff (of course, so that there is room for those pork chops that I wanted to get).

I have a mother in law that way. She wants to fix dinner every Sunday, and it hurts her feeling if you don't eat. Last Sunday it was spaghetti, with meat sauce. She said she didn't make garlic bread because she knows I can eat bread. Lol gotta love her for trying. Then on Tuesday while in the hay field she made boiled potatoes for me. Thankfully she has lots of canned food like green beans, kraut, and always some type of meat, so I can usually pick something out to eat.
