[QUOTE=DavidGomes;1122669]I too am a firm believer in eating good fats. I have tried a few times to start eating coconut oil, but it makes me really nauseous! I have tried to decrease the amount I take, take it with food, with tea etc…nothing works. It makes no different if it is morning or evening either. Have you experienced this? Thoughts?[/QUOTE]
FWIW, I mix my grassfed butter with coconut oil when cooking eggs or whatever. There's no big coconut taste, and the health benefits from the CO.
[QUOTE=Alrz;1122086]i am trying to lose weight, should i eat less butter?[/QUOTE]
I go crazy with the butter. Meat cooked in butter, vegis cooked in butter, butter cooked in butter. And lose weight regardless.
The fact is if you don't get calories from butter you need calories from something else. A person only needs so much protein, carbs are the enemy for weightloss, so that leaves butter. Enjoy.
[QUOTE=jammies;1122661]I eat a stupid amount of butter. I feel better when I am completely dairy free, but I always go back to eating butter.[/QUOTE]
You can get some expensive grass-fed butter and boil it down to remove the dairy; to make super-butter. That's what I do.
Also to the people who say butter doesn't have anything useful in it, it does. Good grass-fed butter has K2 and probably a lot of other awesome stuff we have not yet quantified. Basically butter rules. Although coconut oil is pretty fantastic too.
Butter and other oils and fats are fine and great, I am however against the idea of gratuitously adding butter to everything for the sake of eating more fat.
[QUOTE=Alrz;1122448]Allright. Thanks for the responses everyone! I decided to use a little butter to cook ( mostly eggs for breakfast), and see how it goes. i will count my calories for a few weeks and adjust the cuantity. :)[/QUOTE]
If you are ditching grains and going relatively low carb, you need to up your fat intake to replace the lost energy.
Making your body have to convert protein to usable energy is not where you want to be.,
Butter makes the vitamins in vegetables more bioavailable.
