Lard is difficult to digest, but easier to digest than any artificial oil or fat substance, such as trans-fat.
In general, fats are hard to digest. The easiest are the medium-chain oils, like organic coconut, then the short-chain oils, such as olive oil. Longer chain oils and fats, solid at room temperature, are harder to digest.
If you don't want to avoid lard altogether, then:
- get it from organic or naturally raised meats - the additives that get stored in animal fat from non-organic sources are particularly difficult.
- shallow-fry, don't deep fry, so you eat less fat and oil.
- eat slowly and chew thoroughly. The mechanical action of teeth helps a lot, as does the saliva, as does giving the body time to generate gall from the gall bladder and get it into the stomach, which helps break down fats.
I was looking up an answer to the question and found something weird. It relates not lard, but butter. They are pretty close together. But, what I found was gross. At least I think it is.

When we consider the workings of the human body: the immune system, the continual automatic regulation of its systems, the subconcious workings of the brain, the workings of a cell; does it not seem strange that the body is more intelligent than the person living inside? If there is no God, explain...
