I would recommend going with 25-30% of your daily cals from fat and get at least 6g of fish oil in there to make sure you get adequate omega 3 fats. Most people get plenty of omega 6 fats from their diet so no need to supplement with that. Although olive oil does not really contain much in the way of EFA's it can be used to get in the remainder of the 25-30%, and it does offer other benefits as discussed in the sticky at the top of the forum.
