Struggling To Hit Your Fat Goals?

Many, many people struggle to eat enough fat throughout the day. I am not one of these people. If anything, I have the opposite problem. BUT, I’m here to help.

Even if you’re not following a keto diet, fat is very important in your diet. And while you could shovel fried foods and high-fat snacks down your gullet to hit your fat goals, odds are you want to hit your macro goals in a healthy way. And there are tons of fat sources that will allow you to do just that!

Remember that no matter what, 1g of fat is going to have 9 calories. So if you want to consume 10g of fat, you have to eat at least 90 calories, because science. There’s no way around that- so if calories are a concern, here are examples of foods with relatively high fat that won’t break the calorie bank.

As always, keep in mind that these are not exact numbers. Your avocado might be larger, your choice of nut may be different, the brand of peanut butter might have different macros, etc.

What are your favorite fat sources? I tend to eat a lot of eggs and get much of my fat from meat as well. What about you?
