Fat makes a great energy substrate, and it's delicious. Just wanted to say that so no one thought I was hating on the cream or lard. The question is how much do we need. Let's pretend you were meeting your energy requirements another way and just needed fat for it's non-caloric uses. For instance moving fat soluble vitamins past the gut lining.

This is a very difficult question since
Here's one paper on low fat diets; I'm sure there are others. Unfortunately, the only answer I can give is "it depends."
I think that aiming for about 1-2 tbsp of healthy fats per meal is a good place to start for most people, provided that it allows you to maintain a healthy weight. Less than that, it could be difficult to properly absorb fat-soluble nutrients and feel satiated.
