I don't have coconut oil in the house and I dont eat dairy. I know my body is craving fat, but I have already eaten two avocados! So simply put, how do I get more fat?

Clarified butter means, everything except the fat (or fat soluble stuff) is removed, so you won't find any protein or carbs in it. ie no lactose or casein. If there is any reaction to it, would mean it was not filtered properly. If you make it home, then you would have to use a good strainer. Store bought ones may have adulterated fats, but not casein or lactose. The offending stuff gets precipitated out in the heating process.

It's much easier to find beef fat that it is to find tallow. I think it's worth the effort to make for that extra omega 3 boost, assuming, of course, you buy fat from grass-fed beef.

Tallow is rendered beef fat, analogous to lard being rendered pork fat. You can make your own tallow via a number of approaches documented on the Web, or you can try to find it online. US Wellness sells it but their stuff is pricey and they've not had tallow in stock for awhile. http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Detail.bok?no=878

Really- ghee has no lactose in it? Could I see an article? This may be worthwhile to invest in..

What is tallow? It's just hard when I don't always have access to these items.

How about some eggs?

To add to this, my favorite fatty lards include ground turkey thighs, ground grassfed beef, rendered duck fat, tallow, and clarified butter (ghee). Coconut butter is also an option.

Ghee aka clarified butter.

Butter is dairy, but not everyone realizes that ghee doesn't cause a problem for those who are sensitive to dairy. It is lactose and protein free and is pure fat. I'm very very sensitive and have been eating ghee for about year now with no repercussions that I'm aware of. Ghee is like magic... delish!

Eggs - almond butter(eat it with a banana out of the jar - it's fantastical) chicken - fatty steak(once I realized fat was omgood, fatty steak is just filet mignon, basically...) - avocados as you've been doing, sardines/canned salmon(these two give me awesome clarity and energy).

I suppose if you don't eat dairy it tends to be a bit harder...but if you can tolerate butter, grassfed butter + coffee nets one somewhere around 30g of fat before 10AM(us coffee/butter addicts are probably annoying.)

if you eat nuts there is some good fat you can add there-of course in moderation (I always soak and crisp the nuts so they are better for you, easier to digest). Almond butter, unsweetened coconut is an excellent form and you can make coconut cream and milk from it.

EVOO, ghee

healthy bacon (nitrate free)

fat from the skin of organic chicken, beef, duck while eating it! (I save the duck fat and add it to ground chicken which never has much fat)

Butter is probably easiest - don't know if this counts as "dairy" for you. If it does, maybe you can use ghee? Just about any vegetable can take lots of either. Fatty meat and fish next. Then salad with lots of olive and macadamia oil. I consider eggs a high-protein-low-fat food.
