    If you whip heavy cream long enough to you get watery butter. The "watery" is still the whey.
    Proper butter squeezes all the whey white stuff out. Clarifying the butter squeezes out more. I did check the caloriecount database, a cup of heavy cream has about 6.5 grams carbs and supposedly no sugar. Don't know if that's enough to make a difference.

    But yeah, the calories are an issue too.
    5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained to 109 on sugar cheat. Reset with 85P / 90C / 90F. Currently weaning off fat to 85P / 90C / 60F.

    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 advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Don't be scared of fats. I eat 250 grams of butter a day, along with lots of gouda and other dairy fats and have been doing so for quite a long time. My bloodwork was good too. I only eat carbs in the form of green vegetables and occasionally munch potatoes, rice and sweet potatoes for it's anabolic effect on the weekends.

    I know I am not huge, but I am bouncing back from evil illnesses and there has been no fat gain during my weight increase.
