I am a lean guy who in the past had no trouble gaining muscle. My problem was keeping enough fat in my diet to burn.
I am looking for good fats that I can take and also how much is too much of these good fats. Am I going to throw anything out if I have too much of one type of fat and not enough of the other? I definately need to supplement them because i have always had real trouble getting enough through diet alone, and I have a super fast metabolism.
I have been told im allergic to eggs and dairy which makes it difficult. I will go back on these if I have to because im not sure that going off them makes me feel any better. So in the past I have always mixed my shakes with milk, so can i just mix it with water and some kind of good fat? Im thinking of a shake with carbs and protein and lots of other goodies, but i will add some more carbs too. The fat is my biggest concern.
I want to keep my liver healthy and easy digestion if I can and ive been told a lot of milk is not a good idea.
Any help would be appreciated....

Good fats are pretty easy to find. Almonds, natural PB, fish oil, olive oil, and evening primrose/borage oil are some of my favorites.

fish oil caps are a staple for me.

Adding macademia nut oil (has a better profile even than EVOO) to protein shakes is a great way to get good oils.

Avocados, nuts/seeds, hell moderately lean cuts of beef are a great idea.
