Eating more fat without getting fat

You know my self diagnosis reveals that I might have low-T due to eating a very low fat diet, of course, in addition to my being in my forties.  I have researched that a healthy male like me should get somewhere between 20 and 35% of my total calories from fat.  Since I was not eating enough fats and actually almost all of it were from unsaturated fats, not only do I have to eat more fat, I have to raise the amount of saturated fat.

Now, I do not want to become obese, or overweight, and most likely I won't, because I am so disciplined about what I eat.  For me the challenge is to make dietary changes so that while my overall consumption of calories remains the same or goes up only slightly, I just get more fat into my diet.  My plan is to increase the level of exercise, particularly weightlifting, so that I burn all the excess calories.  I plan to watch my weight very closely and I know it is going to be a challenge.  I am not too concerned at this point but I will report in a few months on how it works out.  I have been on the verge of being underweight, when the Testosterone problems first appeared, so I do have some room to weigh more without getting out of the normal BMI range.
