    I need more sources of fat. What are some suggestions.

    My daily fat intake is usually a fatty cut of meat, 8-10 eggs, an ounce of nuts or nut butter, and with my veggies a few tablespoons of homemade mayo made with coconut or olive oil made into a dressing.

    But i need some more stuff. I can't do butter daily and ive been contemplated just grabbing a bag of pork rinds but obviously thats not ideal.

    Cheese and heavy cream if you do some dairy. Homemade sour cream (or a variety of "yogurt" made with half and half). Cream cheese...may or may not be primal I suppose. Sorry to just throw out dairy sources, but thats what comes to mind if you already do coconu oil and coconut cream (the kind in the can) for smoothies and such. You could ditch the egg whites and eat a bunch of yolks too.

    Yeah dairy and me dont agree on a daily basis. I eat a tub or 2 of fage every few days as i seem to do better with it than butter. and use butter occasionally.

    I use coconut oil often but avocados give my terrible gas and bloating similar to dairy effects on me.

    I use bacon fat for cooking but im really kind of looking for a food source that i can add to my meals that isnt liquid that would add a substantial bulk to my meals.

    Have you tried making your own ghee out of butter? (Ghee is basically the pure butterfat) If you're reacting to the proteins like lactose in the butter, that won't be in the ghee.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Eating oily fish such as salmon and mackerel, using oils in dressings on veg and salads, fish oil supplements, taking cod liver oil, cod liver oil and malt or cod liver oil capsules, nuts, nut oils, lard, dripping, duck fat, goose fat, tallow.. and trying lactose free milks and cheeses.

    When you say nut oils, do you mean macadamia nut oil or do you mean another nut oil such as walnut or almond? Because as far as I know, pretty much every nut oil except for macadamia is full of rancid PUFAs.

    while looking into lactose free cheese i found some lactose free ice cream with surprisingly few ingredients. Didnt know there was a such a thing

    Milk, Sugar, Cream, Natural Flavor, Natural Carob Bean Gum, Lactose Enzyme.

    maybe ill just eat some of this.

    but seriously i cant seem to find any lactose free cheese that doesnt have a host of other shit added to it as i am in the store right now. Im just gonna get some coconut milk and throw it in the fridge and eat the cream when it soldifies. throw that on my salad like its sour cream or something.
