    I loves me some goat milk butter, but rarely eat just a pat even though to me it is as tasty as dark chocolate.

    I do cook most meals in cast iron pans using a teaspoon or so of rendered duck fat or butter. I usually only eat bacon when i cook liver and onions. To clean up my pans at the end of cooking I usually throw in a double hand full of greens or raw coleslaw mix to wilt. This soaks up the odd bits and cooking oil which cleans up the pan for the most part.

    If I was to instead pour off the oil and use a cloth or paper towels to clean it up could I then eat a pat of butter?
    Or both are equally horrible?

    I use a griddle for most my stove top cooking. It has a grease collector that I never use. I just let the fat solidify and reheat it when I cook the next thing. If it happens to be veggies or some other low fat item that saves me from having to add anything. If it is bacon....well I get double fried bacon! It's all good IMO. Long as its primarily from good saturated fat.

    i don't touch honey, maple syrup or molasses. even pre-primal i never cared for them. to equate pure sugar with butter is nothing but hilarity.

    this thread is one of the funnier reads i've had in a while.

    walk away for an hour and come back and read your stuff. bwwaaaahhhhh!! geezus, kid, exhale.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    real foods? i'm dipping skittles in butter and drinking melted cotton candy while read this.

    I do snack on butter by scraping bits with a spoon. The salted stuff is delicious. But I'm good for a about a teaspoon and then I forget about eating.

    But why does butter have to be nutrient dense? It has a nutrient: energy. You gotta burn something to live. I get enough vitamins from my regular meals, which is why butter is a "snack."

    I do agree that bulletproof coffee should be a treat, not a meal replacement, and that you should budget your fat calories for it. CICO still generally applies to fat burners, kinda sorta.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Butter is fat so lets not go off into A!/A2/casein to deep.

    Being mindful of fat content in your diet is good. How one ingest their fat might be a more personal decision.

    I like the way butter tastes, but it's a rather pointless food. Everything it contains can be had from other sources far more nutrient dense. It's just a way to add more saturated fat in your diet.

    It can't be compared to sugar because there is no comparison. Honey, maple syrup, white sugar, molasses, et al. all serve far more of a point than butter. Butter contains far too many calories to be a staple source of nutrients, thus its calorie/nutrient ratio is completely whack. Not only that, but the nutrition composition varies greatly, especially for stuff like vitamin k2.

    Better off drinking milk, or eating cheese, and just adding a dab of butter for eggs or something. Eating it by the stick or throwing half a stick in a drink is just pointless, since it doesn't actually do anything.

    If you get full off doing that, you're probably hypothyroid with a screwed appetite.
