I now really appreciate the healing/strengthening benefits of ghee and duck fat, and give thanks to the wonderful animals providing this fat which is helping improve my health.  I had dry skin/hair for a long time, now this is changing. and this fat gives a nice yang energy on a subtle level, which is balancing.  the benefit are numerous.

Ghee is definitely awesome. I notice how much of a change it has made with healing my gut. I'm way less reactive now - I think the ghee plus the bone stock I make are responsible for that.

After years with mainly vegetarian oils I must admit animals fats make me feel and look good

I do miss good bacon dripping and goose or duck fat - makes fried things so crisp - but then I´ve got ghee and butter as diamonds whatt NOT to like;)

Duck fat is a nice treat for me.

I only roast a duck 2-3 times a year and allow myself to enjoy both the fat and the skin more than I would if it were a more regular food for me.

Thankyou all for your comments, will buy more ghee today as seemed to use more than usual recently, think my intuition told me I needed it as had eaten grains/dairy and cooked starches and think my intestinal lining was inflamed again, also will buy duck today - buy it occasionally, when budget allows, I prefer duck to chicken.  Fish/esp sardines work best for me - like salmon sometimes, cod nice, then lamb, duck, beef and some eggs.  never dairy again as I also think it interferes with mineral absorption, and I must learn more about casein / lactose soon.
Save fat after cooking duck, can fry liver or eggs, or onions in duck fat, good to be economical. yesterday I cooked lamb neck casserole for lunch time, was surprised how I enjoyed it, easy to cook in oven - himalyan mountain salt, a dash of cayenne pepper, dried oregano brought out the flavour, as well as veg  - parsnip, carrot, turnip, onion.  Plus fresh ginger/garlic.

bone stock, yes - good, I also added lamb loin chop bones to beef bones this week for broth, I can feel the soothing quality as I drink the broth. I also added some sea vegetables and parsely but I like to strain before eating as I don't want starchy foods in my system.  (SCD diet says no to sea vegetables)!

The general consensus is that the fat is OK if the animal is OK for your type. It's only different if the fat is rated separately. For example, olive oil is listed separately from whole olives,and butter is listed separately from milk.

It looks like duck is an avoid for Bs, so the duck fat would be an avoid as well.  Turkey and turkey fat should be OK.

You can look up any food in the typebase. This just lists all the foods evaluated for Blood  Type Diet; to see how it rates for you, you need to click on the food and wait for the page with more information to load.

Try making your own ghee!  It's very easy and the results are amazing!!!  It's expensive to buy and what I like about making it is that I can control the butter I use to make it - as in from grass fed cows.

Well.. all of you speak of Ghee.. but my Swami says only 1 tsp 3 x a week!   Patty recently suggested I ditch using Olive Oil, Rice Bran Oil and Walnut Oil for anything other than salad dressings and use ghee to cook with and for all else.  

Is anyone else ignoring the Swami suggestion of such low amounts and just eating what they want of it?  

You'd think that if it was so healing for my gut that Swami would recommend loads of it!

I find this confusing when currently have a dozen oils that are mostly diamonds but only get 5 servings weekly of a table spoon. Ghee is listed in dairy but still eat much more, and if taking Intrinsa obviously much more

Maybe it's best to treat the oils as supplements and just stick with olive oil as the swami oil serving

well something changed on my SWAMI and I now get 1/2 tsp a week of ghee. I prefer butter and I definitely ignore that trivial amount.
I also noticed that when I put joint problems in I get Bell, chili and jalapeno peppers, eggplant and tomatillos as bennies. It is very well known how inflammatory nightshades are so I guess I will be ignoring that too.

It's extremely BIZARRE why Swami does this.  I have ever possible box checked to indicate joint problems with family and myself and still I get the foods you have listed as bennies (even diamonds),  and also I am allowed tomato juice!

I wish someone would explain this!

I, too, ignore the Frequency and Portion Size when it comes to ghee.  I do this with olive oil as well.  I'm less worried about high quality fat than I am about sugar, grains and dairy.

I make my own adjustments to ghee portions......I have very small portions of ghee listed on my SWAMI...Ghee is a diamond..and sometimes for
many days in a row, I'm using olive oil or another fat and no ghee at all.... and then if I need to use ghee, I just use whatever I think I need.  This AM I made eggs in ghee...probably used 2 tsp....when 1/2 tsp is listed as a portion 3x a week.  Really....I am compliant with a food list...I don't eat toxins....but if one fat can be traded for another and I'm not totally overdoing fats for any given day, I do whatever I feel is necessary.  

I don't want to get off track....but I've got two diamond cheeses on my SWAMI with portions that are listed like this:....1-3 oz per portion....5 times a week.  Do I want to eat 15 oz of full fat cheese per week?  Or 5 oz of cheese per week?  Or do I want to use 2 tsp of ghee instead of 1/2 tsp?

Sometimes I have to make choices like this...I often eat less of something or more of something else.  I would never double my bread portions...
but using a little extra ghee?  Yes I do it.

Please don't send the ghee police after me. I'm armed and dangerous!

I eat a lot more than the 8 tbsps a week they recommend of olive oil. We Os need out fat!
After menopause, I quit craving butter, but I used to eat quite a bit. I'm glad I dont crave it too often.
I agree that starches & sugars are worse!

MOST annoying. Also I tried logging into SWAMI to check on tomato juice but the site is down. I will look later. I find I am tweaking SWAMI so much it is hardly worth looking at. I do eat more fat than recommended and I stick to the bennies (except mayo) and I stick to the bennie proteins and as you know I eat no grains carbs or fruit/sweeteners/sugar/juice etc so those categories are completely off the board. I do eat some bennie nuts and seeds but no on the beans. If arthritis is your main complaint I would use the arthritis book and do as Patty has recommended as well as ditch the nightshades, good or bad. I LOVE spicy foods so when I want nightshade I save them for hot sauces or Salsas. Best with just the peppers and not tomato and I can get away with it as I only need condiment quantities.
I will get back to you when SWAMI will let me, haha

how can it be both?

I have a very hard time following the Arthritis Book as it is outdated and so many foods are not listed.   I try to not eat the ones they list but there are so many that are not listed.  So I am going by trial and error or I should say.. 'trial and pain response.'

THAT is the BIG question! BT seems much better for me than SWAMI but still off. I liked SWAMI when I 1st got it because it rated SO many more foods but come to find out most didn't work.
I think you should go by pain response of course.
Personally for me and coincidentally for Patty, ALL grains and dairy cause issues. Nightshades are right up there too and to be honest, too many nuts cause restless leg. So I guess for me the best diet is veggies (salad greens) EVOO, avocado , olives and a few nuts keep me happy (yes avocado is avoid but for me it is a diamond) . I keep it very simple and minimalized these days. Happy tummy, blood sugar and aches.
