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.

If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.

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?

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?

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?
