And understand on cooking with fat and butter vs those oils.

Thank you again for sharing your expertise and insights. Really appreciated!

The MCT oil could be contributing to his digestive troubles.

I’m a big fan of beef, and like lamb, but lamb’s flavor can take a while to like.

As for MCTs, they can cause digestive issues. I’ve had them (issues) in the past. I’m using MCTs now, but I started small (1 teaspoon), and took a while to build up. To troubleshoot, I’d drop the MCTs.

Personally, I find plants cause many more issues than does meat. I can’t name any meat that causes me issues, but I can name quite a few plants that do.

I’d concentrate on fatty meat, bacon, eggs, things like that. As treats, there are some reasonable facsimiles of meals you can do. We use a chicken-crust pizza recipe that is good, and there are things like lasagna that I find good too.

If he’s not trying to lose weight, there are plenty of fat bombs you can use, many can be made sweet.

And dairy, if tolerated, has plenty of opportunity for high fat.
