I need to run 1,500 - 1,800 calories a day to cut, but, I want more calories from fat (around 35 - 45%), what foods meet this criteria?

Thanks guys!

butter. in all seriousness, all foods high in fat are gunna be higher in calories as 1g of fat = 9 calories, while protein and carbs = 4 cals.

Nuts and seeds are high fat and protein.

Yes. I am very long. I plan on running down to 162 pounds before I start my bulk. I plan on settling in around 180 at some point in the future, just curious where I can get more fats.

Edit - My goal is to be long, muscular and slender. I honestly have no desire to ever be that large.

You will have the desire...

Everyone does the 'wanna be lean' the site says BIG, not LEAN.

Im sure youll be asking how to bulk in a few months.

If you reread my post you will see I do want to bulk up slightly, again, but not too much.

from my post above... before I start my bulk.

Trust me, been there done that. Just want to be lean.

:thumbup: did i mention ur awesome?

yeah i'm quite aware that a diet made up solely of butter would not be good for ya :). i was making a little joke, i figured the "in all seriousness" would've tipped you off.

If you need to eat 1500 calories to drop weight from 172, I would say your metabolism is screwed. How quickly did you drop calories and how long have they been that low?

As for saturated fat, it's good stuff. Most nutritionists recommend fat intake of:

33% polyunsaturated
33% monounsaturated
33% saturated

At your weight (172) that's 86g of fat overall, and 28g of saturated fat. One tablespoon of butter has 7g of saturated fat ... and a tablespoon is a ****load of butter.

Been steadily losing .3 - 1 a week for a long time. There hasn't been much slow down (except for the complete deviations from the diet); just figured I should get more Cal/s frrom fat. That's all. When I get to my goal, I will bulk. I want to settle in around 180 pounds.

Edit, sorry. Forgot to answer your question. My calories have been that low for 3 weeks & 5 days. I didn't start an actual low cal diet until recently. The rest of the weight was lost through cutting sweet/soda & adding weights/cardio, not in that order. On a side note, I never feel hungry, low energy, sluggish, malnourished or other wise like crap. I eat 6-7 small meals a day consisting of Oatmeal, Eggs, Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, Fruits & Veggies, Natty PB, Peanuts, Wheat Breads & water. I settle in around 75 - 110 ounces of water/day. I usually end up around 1,450 - 1,850 calories a day. Although, much of those calories were coming from carbs before, which I want to offload to fats. That's all.

Thanks Anthony.

Popped it up to 70 - 80 g's/Fat today, from 40, which is my average. + 200 extra calories from all the extra peanuts and nat. p. butter.
