I tend to be a little shy about using olive oil due omega 6 being about 9% so I worry I'll mess my 6n:3n ratio if I go over board. I tend use coconut oil more freely.

Olive oil is the only oil I use. 10% PUFA, 10:1 omega-6:omega-3… perfect? I think so!  Usually 3-4 tbsp a day.

Thats basically it. We all know, add fat, lower the glycemic index of any carb. Thats why for some crazy reason, ice cream sugars are absorbed slower than starch in white bread (ie lower gi). How/why does this happen?

Why would it be any more taxing on the liver than a huge carbohydrate load would be on the pancreas? Or a huge protein load on the kidneys? Why do folks assume the body is some fragile thing, incapable of being resilient and adaptable?

If it is animal, you can eat it. If it is tough, get it into small enough pieces and then do as the Inuit (Stephanson, Fat of the Land) did- roll around in your mouth a few times for flavor and then just swallow it.
