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.
