Any sources of fat I'm forgetting?

Hey guys!

I need more fat. Yet I have severe allergies.

I'm allergic to eggs, nuts, coconut oil, fish oil and dairy wrecks my skin.

I've been living on avocados and pork/beef fat. A little duck fat if I can find it.

Anything I haven't considered?

Carbs seem to fatten me up like nothing else.

I say good xv olive oil (do your research--a lot is cut with yucky things like soybean oil and/or is rancid). CA Olive Ranch is dependable, and easily found in supermarkets.

Why do you need more fat? You mentioned below that you're trying to lose weight.

Raw cow or goat milk kefir might be a tolerable form of fat.

You say dairy wrecks my skin - but have you experimented with different types of dairy? Hard dairy appears to be a lot less problematic for some people

Yes Olive oil, make sure its first cold pressed unfiltered olive oil, and don't cook with it, high heat can cause it to go rancid :(

my condolences on not being able to have coconut oil :(

Olive oil for cooking and Virgin Olive oil for dressing. You can also make a yummy mayonnaise from standard olive oil (just swap the coconut oil for avocado oil or even just more Olive oil) to change the taste up a bit. You can add various spices if you like too

Have you tried grass-fed butter or ghee? Many people who have problems with dairy don't have problems with these.

  1. Bone marrow.

  2. Save the fat that forms on your bone broth and use that for cooking.

  3. Another good one is liver pate. Cook up some liver (chicken or any kind you like) and mushrooms in the oil or fat of your choice. Be extra super generous with that fat. When the liver is almost done (still a little bit of red stuff is coming out) put it all in the blender. Add a little more fat if you have any (butter, cream, or in your case, bone marrow or beef tallow or duck fat or whatever). Blend it until smooth. Refrigerate or freeze in small containers.

  4. Another good fat source is pesto. You can leave out the cheese. You can use olive oil, walnut oil, pistachio oil, avocado oil. You can use pine nuts or pistachios or walnuts. You can use basil or you can use other herbs like spearmint (so good on lamb!), chives, or whatever combinations you think up, like half basil half mint. Good on meats, fish, vegetables, cheese and even just on a spoon.

  5. Another good fat source, even though it's just another form of olives, are things that are stored in olive oil, like sundried tomatoes in olive oil, olive tapenade, sardines or oysters or other seafood in olive oil. Heck, just olives are good, too. I bet there are all kinds of blended up olive tapenade-like things you could invent.

nice fatty cuts of lamb and beef. mmm my little sister has a similar allergy list and mostly lives off lamb shoulder and roast vegetables.

coconut and ghee have nothing on juicy meat and marrow off the bone.

Ethically produced virgin red palm oil! It has a weird taste though, but I like it.

Do you tolerate ghee?

durian? it's a pretty fatty fruit, might be able to find it at an asian grocery store, sometimes frozen. also can you eat olives? my other sources: lots of cow bone marrow, roasted. my favorite way to eat beef fat. kidney

I find fat is best slathered on a carb.

you can make this and use potatoes instead of bread (unless you're allergic to potatoes): http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/31/dining/311mrex.html

also have you tried just eating egg yolks?
