Can someone give me a good idea of what a good meal is or meals per day to get the RDA of saturated fats, or more if that's what's recommended.
I hear milk is bad, so full milk at breakfast is a no-no?
What about cheese? Less or more ripened or also a bad idea?
Should we get it from meat?
Do eggs contain saturated fats?
I want to kickstart testosterone production through this measure as my diet is low in sat fats.

Coconut Oil is a great way to get your saturated fats IMO. Get unrefined preferably.
Also eggs are a good choice, with lots of cholesterol to be used in hormone synthesis. To see nutrition data, check out Nutrition facts, calories in food, labels, nutritional information and analysis – NutritionData.com

Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis (EMFA)
sample report here:
Page #1, Look under the name "Saturated Fatty Acids"
in small letters it says "(meat, dairy, coconuts, palm oils)
Latter you have more details:
names of each analyzed fatty acids and its number.
all together they show 8 of them.
Now take this
Nutrition facts, calories in food, labels, nutritional information and analysis – NutritionData.com
Nutrient search tool
on that sample report you see that he have too much of:
In a search tool dial C15:0
either as a
... that are highest in
... and are lowest in:
I found that among other foods the guy from sample report should stay away from parmesan cheese.
You have to do analysis, because in my case I am low on C15:0 and I should eat a parmesan.
But watch out, I am high on C23:0
I should cut on milk.
Now get you own analysis and try to figure out what you are missing and what you have too much.

One have to weight his options.
The test it self, when I go to my doc, cost me nothing, covered by insurance.
In my case doctor cost me only a little, that is now.
But, I am guessing, my doc is wearing thin, he have some problems, I would like to find that link.
