    How much butter is too much butter?

    Shop Now
    Dear friends, I eat about 0.75-1 stick (250g) of Kerrygold butter every day!

    Is this too much? I am not trying to lose weight, on the contrary, I want to gain some.

    Thank you for commenting!

    LeJ,

    I think that it would becomes detrimental at the point where it crowds out other Macro/Micronutrients. It shouldn't be as big of an issue since you are trying to actually gain weight. This is just my $0.02.

    As long as you are getting an ample supply of protein, veggies and fruits as well I don't see a problem with it.

    if you are looking to gain weight, make sure your protein intake is well over 1g per pound of bodyweight first. This will help ensure it is the right kind of weight. If at that point you still need more calories, have at er.

    Yeah I eat tons of protein and veggies as well. I eat these foods as a stable (they make like 80-90% of my nutrition):

    kangaroo meat
    beef
    some pork
    canned sardines
    smoked alaskan salmon


    eggs
    protein powder
    full fat yogurt
    little milk

    broccoli
    cauli
    spinach
    romanesco

    avocado
    pears
    bananas

    white rice
    sweet potatoes

    tons of spices
    coconut flakes
    coffee
    green tea

    olive oil
    BUTTER

    I rarely substitute meals for butter, I use it as an extra.

    If you were to get tired of eating butter, that would be one sign that you had been eating too much of it.

    Signs you might have a problem with butter:

    1. You miss social engagements or work because you want to stay home and eat butter.
    2. You eat butter when you're alone.
    3. You've stolen butter from other people's refrigerators.
    4. You start to feel panic when you are down to your last five pounds of butter.
    5. You sneak a few bites of butter while attending mass.
    6. You get weepy at the thought of a world with no butter.
    7. You steal your child's piggy bank money to buy butter.
    8. If your spouse ever gave you the ultimatum, "It's me or the butter," you'd choose the butter.
