some people are more sensitive to fats and oils than others.

give your body some time to adapt to it if it's something you're not used to eating... the gas is just your system rebelling against new chemistry.

olive oil is a way of life....for people like me (and my family) NOT having olive oil in a food is the oddity. I've grown up on the stuff, and I down it no problem. At one point I was drinking 1/4 cup of it in the morning :)

My body naturally produces massive amounts of gas and crap throughout the day, I don't notice any additional production from olive oil.

Frying is ok as long as the temperature stays at a reasonable level. From google:

Can I fry with olive oil?
Yes, you can fry in olive oil.
Olive oil, as with any fatty substance, deteriorates during frying especially if it is used over and over and if the frying temperature is very high. High temperatures destroy the good ingredients of any oil and create harmful agents for the liver, the arteries and the heart. These harmful agents are less likely to be created in olive oil than in all known vegetable oils. This is because olive oil has a high percentage of oleic acid, which is much more resistant to oxidization than the polyunsaturated acids, which are found in large amounts in seed oils. Also more importantly olive oil contains natural anti-oxidizing agents such as phenols and vitamin E.

Olive oil tastes fine in chocolate whey shakes but is a bit strong for vanilla.

But if you're going to add oil to shakes, why not flax?

i know olive oil has a high smoke point... is there a correlation between smoke points and the tendency for oils to "corrupt" at various temps?

I've tried drinking olive oil a couple of times and just taking a tablespoon almost makes me puke. It's almost like a reflex, my body just doesn't want it.

I take a small swig of EVO oil 2-3x daily. Calorie dense for the serving size, beneficial and is good w/PB or cheese for helping to cram some quick cals. :)
