If you've been alive for at least a couple decades, you've no doubt heard horror stories about how "dangerous" animal fats are ... but ... once you read this short article, you'll see saturated animal fats are some of the healthiest fats you can consume!

For the purpose of this article, I'll be focusing on one of the healthiest fats out there -- butter from grass fed cows.

Why I Eat Tons Of Butter ...

Recently, I sent out an article written by my good friend Mike Geary called "Warning: do NOT use these cooking oils!" and it got a really great response. People seem to be very interested in why I, and my colleague Mike Geary, recommend these oils and fats that most health "authorities" say are unhealthy.

One fat that isn't covered thoroughly in Mike's article is butter. It's no secret, I go through a LOT of butter. I use it for cooking almost everything, and for good reason:

1. It makes nearly everything delicious ...

2. It's healthy!

Now, I don't think many people would disagree with point #1 -- I mean -- who can resist steak expertly cooked in butter ... or a sweet potato with cinammon and melted butter ... or freshly steamed brocolli covered in melted butter?

(Doesn't it just make your mouth water?)

But some people might have a problem believing butter is incredibly healthy for you. So let's talk about that ...

Why Butter Is Healthy ...

Despite the media fear-mongering that has taken place for the last few decades -- there is no good reason to fear saturated animal fats. None.

  • The "lipid hypothesis" for heart disease is just that--a hypothesis that was never proven. In fact, it has been disproven in many scientific trials.
  • The same goes for the "high cholesterol is bad" hypothesis.
  • (However both saturated animal fat intake and cholesterol levels have been exploited by the mass media and giant pharmeceutical companies for a profit of, literally, hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars, but I digress ) ...

While I don't have time to cover both of the above points, because it leaves the scope of this article, the truth is a lot less sensational. Butter is a healthy food that most people should be consuming.

In fact, to make this information more easy to digest, take a look at this revealing infographic. (You can click the photo to see it full size):

Just some quick points I want you to note:

  • Butter is very vitamin rich ...
  • Butter helps your body "access" other fat-soluble vitamins in other food you might be eating (such as vegetables) -- without fat in your meals with these other "healthy" foods your body can't access these fat soluble vitamins!
  • Because it's saturated, and more stable, butter is fine for cooking/baking at high temperatures ...

What about cholesterol?

What about it? Seriously though, even though you shouldn't be worried about cholesterol -- butter will do nothing but good things for your cholesterol ...

Take for instance this post where a man added a half a stick of butter (!) to his daily regime and saw:

  • HDL (“good”) cholesterol went up by 19%
  • Non-HDL cholesterol went down by 25%.

... Results that would impress ANY doctor. While results like his (and other self-experimenters on the internet) aren't from mainstream studies or scientific trials -- I simply would not worry about increased butter causing "bad" cholesterol levels.

If you're truly worried, you can get your blood work done now, and track how much it changes after adding in butter. (For the record: I get my own blood work done regularly every couple of months and have seen nothing but positive results from eating so much butter.)

So as you can see, there is nothing wrong with consuming more butter. However ...

Watch Out For "Fake" Butter!

I don't know about you, but I grew up on margarine and other fake "Butter substitutes". That's not good. None of these are healthy at all (the reasons why leave the scope of this article).

The brand I recommend and consume is called "Kerrygolds Pure Irish Butter" because it is from grass-fed cows. But beware, as I'm told they have a "reduced fat" version of their butter -- don't buy this.

Only buy the regular, natural butter.

If you can't find this particular brand, simply look for any brand that is only pure butter and is from grass fed cows (ideally).

How Much Butter Should You Eat?

While some people are fans of extremely high fat and low carb/moderate protein diets -- I don't think you need to "over-consume" butter. And the amount of butter which you eat is dependent upon your own circumstances.

Remember: butter is still fat, and as such, it is still relatively high in calories per gram ...

  • If you're already at, or close to your goal weight, and are eating a healthy diet, then you may not even need to think about how much butter you're eating (take myself for example: I never count how much butter I'm using and just slather all my foods in it, or cook with it with reckless abandon. I'm neither trying to use "more" or trying to use "less".)
  • If you're trying to lose weight, you may need to keep an eye on how much you use. With cooking, you'll probably leave some in the cooking pan, which is ok, but keep an eye on how much you put on your foods, etc. That said, don't restrict it too much thinking it's somehow "bad" -- just be aware it's high in calories like other fats.

So be like me and enjoy your butter and instead of thinking it is "bad", think of it as a perfectly natural, "health" food for you :)
