Considered by who? Not by anyone I care to consider following.
"There is no formal definition for a high-fat diet, but diets that are high in fat content typically derive at least 50 percent of total calories from fat nutrients. Based on a 2,000 calorie diet, this is equivalent to at least 111 g of fat. By comparison, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the AAFP, states that the typical American diet gets 35 percent of its calories, or 85 g, from dietary fat."

I am not the only one who defines a high *****diet in that way.
Subtract non digestible carbs before doing your calculation if you wish.
But the math is the same.
