nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.

I need the calories but I am sensitive to some of the more tastier fats, like coconut, avocado, and nuts. Is there a way I could sneak in more tallow in a tastier connotation? Maybe a sauce or something, where I can't taste it directly?

Eat carbs until I feel appropriately fueled for the level of activity I'm currently doing. Also drink more liquid and take in more salt to adjust for what's lost in sweat.
