okay, the main thing is, why don't you limit your butter consumption to a reasonable amount? Like, your average restaurant portion could feed you for several meals, if you weren't such an fleeking piggie.

The point really is, eat more omega-3s (fish, grass-fed meats, dairy, and eggs, or take cod-liver oil), reduce your intake of omega-6s (limit your intake of vegetable oils, or stick with coconut, palm, or olive oil, which is healthier, and try to limit processed foods, which contain lots of mutated omega-6s, including trans-fats), and when you get your cholesterol checked, don't focus so much on the total blood level, but rather your triglycerides or even your c-reactive protein (crp), which is a better long-term indicator of your heart health. If you're maintaining a good omega-3/omega-6 ratio, your HDL and LDL should be in good standing.

The famous study that most doctors go by (but are starting to not) was found significantly flawed. It showed by country that populations with higher cholesterol levels had higher rates of heart disease. But the scientist only included about 15 of the countries and left out the others that didn't match this finding. In fact, some countries with the highest cholesterol had low heart disease and vice versa.

Plus, there is no such thing as "good" and "bad" cholesterol; that is an oversimplification. Cholesterol got accused of causing atherosclerosis (plaque in the arteries) and heart disease because it was found repeatedly in high quantities in autopsies done on heart attack corpses (but not in all). Cholesterol is actually important to the body because it helps heal damaged arteries, kind of like when platelets rush to the scene of a bleed. So those with atherosclerosis are damaging their arteries somehow, but cholesterol was just trying to repair the damage. It's like finding firefighters at a fire and blaming them for causing it. What can hurt arteries is triglycerides, among a few things.

In fact, low cholesterol has been known to cause more harm than good, because our bodies need saturated fat and cholesterol to build and maintain cell walls and function. And there is no correlation between high total blood cholesterol and increased risk of heart disease.

Man, he had me up until his recommendation for less saturated fats and using vegetable spreads.

Americans eat too many unsaturated fats (usually from vegetable oils) thereby offsetting their Omega-3/omega-6 ratio. It should be 1:1, but it's WAYYY higher than that, like 1:21. Omega-3s are generally found in grass-fed meats, dairy and eggs. Omega-6s are in vegetable oils and grain-fed meats, dairy, and "vegetarian" chickens (chickens are naturally omnivores). Grains were never supposed to be fed to cows and other ruminants. It makes their stomachs acidic.This off-balance of too many omega-6s and not enough omega-3s is what's causing havoc in our bodies.

Since losing weight, I rarely use butter and when I do it's that "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" 0 calorie spray

I have no difficulty believing it's not butter.

Fine! I won't use either. I'll just slather my toast with Elderberry jam. :p

MAR-jer-un a or MAR-jer-in is what you hear on nationwide TV ads, and is the way I've heard every Canadian say it. Well, except for a brain-damaged substitute teacher in Grade V who thought it was called "mar-jeen."

I love the way each region has its own way of pronouncing certain words. "Pee-can" vs. "P'khan", "HI-bis-cus" vs. "HIB-i-cuss", etc. But...
@Penguinazul; there's just one way to say grits. And that is "grits, mmmm". lol, have a great night all.

Since losing weight, I rarely use butter and when I do it's that "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" 0 calorie spray, and I only use that when I need to flavor up some vegetables or want a little something on my toast/potatoes/grits (yes grits!) without all the calories. It hasn't affected my health in the slightest, so I really don't see what the problem is.

"Why does he say 'Margarine' in such a strange way? Is that how it's pronounced by everyone in America?"
Mid-western neutral dialect is: "Mar-Jer-inn."
Other dialects vary toward "Mar-jrinn."

Natural vs. Processed is utterly meaningless. compare what they *do* and not where they're *from*.

You can't make hollandaise with margerine.
That's all you need to know.

When I was a kid, I hated butter and preferred Blue Bonnet margarine, although we called it "oleo". Now as an adult, I'm butter all the way. Usually with garlic thrown in so that balances out the negative heart affects ;)

Butter is better, just use less of it.

@ Windy - I'm torn. Butter is better for flaver in pie crust, but lard gives it flakiness butter just can't achieve.

I love cooking :) I did home made cinnamon rolls that were a big hit last weekand and my sour cream poundcake is to die for.

I prefer the taste of margarine to butter, but butter is better on popcorn than margarine.

Either way, I've cut a lot of butter and margarine out of my diet.
