      How can I get more fat calories without consuming dairy or coconut?

      I do eat cultured butter and do well on it. But, I sometimes feel lousy when I eat dairy. (I've done raw, fermented, etc.). I can eat some cheeses and feel ok, but I generally keep dairy to a minimum.
      Coconut doesn't agree with me either. I like it, but I get heartburn (never get that otherwise) and then taste this horrible taste all day. Even with manna.

      So, how can I get more fat?

      Should I just chug butter and good oils? Can I make meat-based fat dishes like short-ribs?

      Thanks!

      In the LCHF recipe group there is a discussion titled something like "12 healthy fats for a LCHF diet" it has a link to an article that my help. Also, I feel pretty sure P will put the link on the first page of our new thread that starts tomorrow morning

        The nurse feels that I have anemia due to the circus coming to town. She recommended supplementing iron for the week before and the week of. This has happened in the past, but not as severe. Probably due to all the changes my body is going through.
        Do you like clams?
        Clams are actually better than even liver for iron.

          • Those values are for clams cooked on gentle moist heat. Not raw.
            Gentle moist heat actually increases the availability of the iron.

            No one is gonna make you eat a raw clam if your don't want to.

                That would be the start of the month (192.7) two weeks in (188.6) a few days later (188.9 to 187.0 same day) yesterday (190.0) and today (191.7)

                Crazy stuff.

                    • HB, it makes me think that you are getting into something that may be causing an inflammatory response. I think tracking would help you see. I weigh almost everyday as I track my intolerances (not recommended if you can't handle the fluctuations!).

                            Well, try digging those suckers! They can dig to China while you are still figuring out where to put your shovel! Next time you eat one of them thar GOOEYDUCKS (that is how to pronounce it) you'd best treasure it because there is nothing easy about harvesting them!

                              • I've seen the harvesting on TV shows, people all shoulder deep trying to wrangle them out of the mud...

                                And yeah, I know exactly what they LOOK like...
                                But they TASTE divine!

                                In a proper sushi place it is served as mirugai or giant clam.... getcha some!
