Oh happy day when I found out Butter is good for me. It was sort of like finding coffee and chocolate were good for me. When I think of the foods I'm "deprived of" being on this WOE, the rich foods I can have so far outweigh them! I remember starving on a low fat, low calorie diet, longing for real food that tasted good, instead of diet margarine, skim milk, egg beaters etc. Take the fat out, take the taste out! I remember how scared I was at first eating real fat when I went on a low carb way of eating. I remember also how surprised I was when I began to rapidly lose weight and all the while doing that feeling full and satisfied, and no longer craving sweets. Don't get me wrong, I do love my sweets and occassionally bake myself a treat. But I don't HAVE to have them. I don't CRAVE them in a way that I cannot resist them, thinking about them all day until I finally just have to give in. That was what it was like for me before going low carb. I was ALWAYS hungry, always craving, and always feeling bloated and fat besides. And while on that low fat, low calorie diet I also gained weight actually. I remember how out of control I felt starving and gaining weight. I thought I was destined to just get fatter and fatter and more miserable feeling besides.
I found this video by Sally Fallon, "The Queen of Butter". She is the author of Nourishing Traditions. Also take a look at some of her other videos on YouTube.
