Guess I should have been more specific:

I mean the best animal fats to apply externally to skin, and any preparation before application.

By preparation I mean things including heating the fat up, quantity, mixtures, etc. (Essentially, the best way to get the fat to absorb without just sitting on top of the skin.)

Also, I'd like to know why some of you choose to use shea/cocoa butter over coconut oil or macadamia oil. Is it even practical to find shea/cocoa butter cold pressed?

As far as vitamin E goes, wouldn't olive oil or palm oil be better than shea butter?

I'm trying to find the best way to increase absorption of animal fats into my skin.

Last time I used suet, it stuck to my skin and 24-48 hrs later I had some acne (may or may not have been related)

Previously I had been using plant oils (coconut, macadamia, olive) which seem to have better absorption. I also used these oils to clean my teeth (oil pulling + brushing).

Basically, I'm trying to determine the types of fats (rendered or not) I should consider using. Perhaps egg yolks are a solution - though practically it is hard to find them with a decent omega 3:omega 6 ratio.

i've a chinese doctor, (it's believed that he's one of the best in the world) amazing. what he can do to see your feet for couple of minutes and can tell you everything what's wrong with your body. i'm in raw paleo and so does my child, and we also get amazing results from him. his treatment is not raw paleo , but diagnosis is the best. he is not a medical doctor and he sees patients in manhattan once a month. it takes months to make an appointment with him.

what's his name. I'll make an appointment and report back how it goes.

Hi Lex,

After reading more of your posts, I am taking to your philosophy (at least how I read it) on eating to be active, and not spending all of one's time thinking and planning/preparing a "perfect" diet. So I can understand why use tallow and frozen meat and occasionally the microwave.

Realizing this, I am a bit curious why you would spend extra time to mix in slankers ground beef into the pet food. Adding in the ground beef seems to be unnecessary when you have access to tallow, unless you are trying to reduce the percentage of organs in your diet.

If you are trying to reduce this percentage, I am curious to know how you decided on the particular ratios.

Hi Lex,

I'm experimenting with a diet change inspired by you and was wondering how long you have been consistently consuming tallow?

I have a large, perhaps unreasonable fear, that consuming high quantities of cooked fats and hormones puts unnecessary stress and confusion on the body.

Also, I'm curious why you switched away from mixing in the suet/back fat raw.

Thanks for the info.

I'm looking for a doctor in the NYC area and wanted some advice.

Currently, I'm seeking someone knowledgeable in testing for nutrient levels, but I'm open to more ideas.

Does anyone know of an MD or DO in the NYC area worth meeting?

Thank you.
