What I've heard is your body processes the medium chain triglycerides in a different way from other fats, by the liver, and that your body will tend to want to burn it off rather than store it. To a point, of course. But the omega 3 in the beef drippings and tallow are going to make you feel good, satisfied and happy. So you don't want to just swap one out on some crazy idea that if a little of something has a particular advantage, more is better.
