  • Eating plain fat

    Hello, does anybody have some experience eating plain fat. For example, sometimes when i am outside home, instead of eating the common, i go to the groceries and buy 100g of butter. Sounds weird to me. Anyway i wanna know your thoughts.

    No problem with it. Not conventional, so CWers might think you're weird, but that's a sign you're doing something right.

    Plus, butter is high in fat-soluble vitamins:

      I eat butter if I don't have any avocados lying around if I need the calories. It's digestible, it's food, go ahead.

        I used to eat straight butter as a kid. And my kids slice some off and eat it too. Nothing wrong with it.
        Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

          I do it too. If I am short on fat and calories for the day, and I am not hungry. No worse than putting it in your coffee.

            Made beef bone broth over the weekend. After straining the brew I seasoned and ate the thick globs of fatty connective tissue. My wife gagged as I put in my mouth.

              Butter, fatty skin from any birds I get that aren't 100% grain-fed, fat from red meats and, of course, olive oil and fish oil to help when feeling ill or suffering a dehydration-headache (I come from a hot country and live in the UK, so I'm very used to only drinking when I feel warm, which worked there, but obviously doesn't here!).

              All good. My fav is NZ lamb or chicken fat, roasted or fried in butter until crispy... Mmm! Lamb-cracking is MUCH better than pork crackling and pork crackling is amazing, so get yourself some lamb fat! ;p

                Sure, I have whale blubber and sometimes my butter has teethmarks on it.

                It's all good.

                  My favorite way to take in fat is through the instant fat bomb known as grass fed cream. 1c has 800 cals. I usually have 1/2c when I make a protein shake, or hot chocolate.

                    i always cook my roasts so there is crackling on them if they have fat. the rinds left after making tallow are good snacks too. lamb and venison are my favourite.

                      i've eaten suet by itself, and marrow by itself, and butter by itself. my thoughts are that it's awesome
                      I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

                        Double-roasted beef fat leftover off a roast....I've indulged with my bare fingers. It was a good thing I was home alone.

                        I've asked the meat counter at Whole Foods for suet. You know what the reply was? "What?" "You know, some beef fat." "Oh, uh, no, none of that."

                          I snack on butter, too. Did that pre-Primal as well - I just enjoy butter period. My favorite is cultured butter. I sometimes grab the coconut oil pot and dip my Larabars into it for extra oomph if I eat one of those bars. I spoon the pan fat and drippings over my veggies and meat on my plate as well.

                            suet is the fat from around the kidneys. i can just get bags of regular beef fat from any butcher if i ask. suet is more difficult to get hold of as they always do something to it.

                              Can you get bags of regular fat at Whole Foods? Because that was met with a blank stare followed by befuddlement at well.

                              I just want something to put on top of the extra-lean and denuded roasts I get at WF. How can the meat counter guys there not even know what suet is?
