If you whip heavy cream long enough to you get watery butter. The "watery" is still the whey.

But yeah, the calories are an issue too.

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
