Is there such a thing as ghee intolerance?

I've started the Whole30 last week and I haven't drank any milk, yogurt or even butter. But I'm using ghee. In the beggining, I tought it was the eggs that were causing the nauseas, that "vomit feeling' (I'm sorry if you have just pictured it). But then, I used the ghee to prepare some steak and I had the same sensation.

Today,  I used it to prepare my omelet and guess what? Nauseas again! Have any of you guys felt this stomach sickness when consuming this specific kind of fat? What can I use as substitue? I use coconut oil, but only when I'm frying pancakes and stuff like that.

If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.

I just loved it, the taste and smell awesome. I won't mind to have it 3 times a day.

Yes, some people are overly sensitive to even the tiny amounts of protein in ghee.  You could try bacon grease, lard or tallow instead.  It won't taste the same.
