Adequate Fat?

My daughter gasped some months ago when I described my WOE as high fat, medium protein and low carb. She saw my results, but she thought high fat might be unhealthy. I was thinking on my walk today that adequate fat might be a better way of describing the combination. Fat seems to be more variable than carbs or protein. For me adequate fat would be enough to satiate, but not so much as to put my calories over the top. Is adequate just a good or perhaps better descriptor as high?

Most of us eat high fat. Any where from 60 to 80 percent of calories are fat. I can eat a lot more fat than protein or carbs without gaining weight.

Yes, that's how I eat too. My fat is high relative to protein and carbs. I am just thinking in semantic terms, of how to describe my way of eating.

My woe is high fat. I like the term 'nutrient dense' as that is a better description. The quantity of food is small because of this. On occasion I have responded to my small colume with this explanation and it is accurate..... nutrient dense.

I don't think we eat more fat than the average American (in terms of grams), we just eat less of everything else so it's a higher percentage of our diet. Potato chips, french fries, big macs and ice cream have lots of fat.

I agree that a diet high in junk foods would be high fat and of the very worst type but a lot of folks are coming from a 'low fat' woe.

This was where my thought was heading when I raised the question.
