In your diet, where does most of the fat come from?
Olive oil, nuts, flax, fish, avocados, etc?

I'm going to be adding some olive oil into my diet, such an easy way to add calories!

Olive oil. Almonds. Coconut Oil. Fish Oil. In that order.

I eat a ton of canned salmon, so lots of fat there as well.

Eat it with a spoon! Other than that, the cocoa balls that were in the Performance menu...maybe issue 3? were excellent.

Most of my fat comes from olive oil, almonds, peanut butter and fish oil (though I don't really count that)

Store the coconut oil in a slightly warm place, as it is a solid at 76 degrees and below. I like my water heater closet for this. I take it by the spoonful (two teaspoonfuls daily). Dr. G sells it if you are interested.

In order from greatest to least:
Olive oil (~3 Tbsp)
Various nuts and seeds (~1/2 cup, this is my fill-in-the-blank fats)
Coconut oil (1 Tbsp, unless cooking dinner with fat, then the amounts of coconut and olive oil switch)
Butter oil (1 Tbsp)
Cod liver oil (1 Tbsp)
Meat and fish fats
