Default What about fat?

I'm new here and have begun to log food intake closely. From what I've read in the above posts most are on low-fat WOEs. Anyone thought that eating MORE fat would be more satisfying - a good way to keep protein and calories down, but a good way to be satisfied with less volume?

I try to keep protein to 65 g daily, and carbs as low as 20 g daily, but will to up to 120 gs of fat - coconut oil/milk, butter, and fat on meat. On this I can stay around 1500 cals daily and don't get that "hunger" we all know and hate. As I have only that last darned 10 lbs to lose this is a better way for me. Comments?

P.S. this is a great site! and I'm glad I found it as it really helps to hear the experiences of others on the same path...

Hey, the best plan it whatever works for YOU!

Fat is processed faster than protein, so theoretically protein should keep you "full" longer.

Personally, I tend to average around 40/30/30 carbs/protein/fat and it seems to work for me.

Regards,
Michael
