    For people who cut out dairy -- did you also cut out butter?

    Primal Fuel
    Hi, I've been having acne lately and I'm thinking it might be to due the butter I'm consuming. I've already cut out all other kinds of dairy (I don't eat cheese, yogurt or heavy cream), but I've been reluctant to cut out butter because I feel like it's such a staple in my diet (I put tons of it on my vegetables). If you cut out dairy, did you also cut out butter? If so, has this helped you with anything?


    Also, if I do choose to cut out butter, what can I use to replace it? I feel like nothing compares to the taste of it and I'm afraid giving it up will mean I won't be able to find other easy sources of fats that taste good.

    Try out ghee. Buttery flavor, no milk solids.

    I love virgin coconut oil. It's delicious. Some people don't like it. My brother hates the taste of coconut. Makes a face like a damned toddler. Hampers all my attempts to get him on the right track. Sorry, I'm rambling.

    I don't think there is such a thing. Room temperature virgin coconut oil is kind of buttery.

    Its more likely that you have one or more vitamin or mineral deficiencies rather than that butter is the cause

    So tell your brother to use bacon fat! Can't see anybody complain about that. I also find red palm oil to be surprisingly mild flavored, no coconut flavor there.

    I had to cut out all dairy myself, including butter. If it is the hormones in dairy that cause your skin to break out then it makes sense that butter would be a culprit as the hormones tend to concentrate in the milkfat. Only way to be sure would be to do an elimination.

    When I cut out dairy I kept butter in but had awful cravings for dairy, so now I have switched to using ghee. I react so strongly to dairy (digestive problems and insomnia) that I'm sure I'm better off that way anyway. No harm in trying ghee and seeing if that helps. It's easy to make your own if you can't get grassfed ghee where you live.
