Please. You know the argument I'm making. I make the same argument in practically every single post I make. Do you know what it is?

And these same people would be horrified at someone putting one single 16 calorie packet of white sugar in my coffee.
I'll eat cheese - on some occasions - because cheese is nutritious and a great source of calories. I go through more butter than I go through cheese - because butter is a useful kitchen tool, and I try not to eat a lot of cheese because it's incredibly easy to overeat. I'm more of a yogurt kind of person because it's low calorie and filling. I won't eat sticks of butter and blend them in my coffee ever because there is no point to that. That is like...wait for it...taking a spoon to a bag of sucanat.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
