Recommended Fat Per Meal Question

Hello, 

The recommended fat per meal-oils, butters, coconut, olives, avocado, coconut milk,.....is the recommended at every meal (as in eat all of these things with your dish) or use/pick one or two items to add in flavor and fat. Figuring out how much is too much, or is it just by how satiated you feel? Thank you.

Pick one or two per meal. Adjust as you finesse your personal meal composition requirements to get 4-5 hours duration from a meal.

This is the one thing I found confusing in It Begins with Food. Protein is clear, 1-2 palms, 1 if you are not lean. Fat seemed sort of iffy, like you might have fat in your salad dressing and then half an avocado as well. If you aren't lean, do you stick to one thumb of fat per meal, and does that include cooking fat as well as whatever might be in the meal, like nuts or avocado?

Pick one or two in addition to what you cook in. It's less about if you're lean or not and more about your meals keeping you satisfied for 4-5 hours at a time. There are lean but sedentary people who may do well with less protein, fat, and just generally less food overall. There are larger people who are very active and need more.
