    Hey Nick thanks for leaving your feedback here! From everything I’ve read it seems that the hormones or hormone mimickers in commercial fats/meats can really mess up weight maintenance, not the actual fats. That’s important for peeps to know! Cheers!

    Yeah, you definitely want to consume the “grass-fed” versions of both meat and butter whenever you can, rather than the traditional, mass marketed stuff. The normal beef has so many hormones pumped into them that are pretty bad for your body.

    I guess a similar thing happened with the “idea” the saturated fats are “bad.” Companies with a big marketing budget tell you to buy their stuff instead. But your body absolutely needs saturated fats!

    Oh well, you just gotta educate yourself I guess. And I have actually tried Bulletproof Coffee myself. It’s pretty good! Even if it takes a little while to prepare in the mornings.

    Hi Darren – thanks so much for your comment here! Indeed, healthy fats and oils have been vilified by business interests for decades!

    It’s great to see a post that actually mentions the health benefits of fats and oils and how we need some of these in our diets to remain healthy and for our bodies and minds to function. So often every post you read of this topic just condemns fats and oils rather unfairly at times.

    Thanks for the great information here. It certainly was helpful and educational.

    Ches, thank you so much for taking time to leave your thoughts! There is so much information to read about healthy fats! It seems I can barely scratch the surface. I do intend to keep writing about this topic and have your advice in mind!

    Hi there and thanks for the informative post. Saturated fats such as butter and egg yolks, cococut oil etc., are vital for our health and when the hype about margarine over butter was in vogue, the margarine companies had a field day and still do.
    Seeds and eggs are the start of a new life, it’s obvious that they will contain everything to nurture the young plant or animal so by default IMHO, they must be good for you.
    I think most people don’t realize that food companies are in it for profits, not for your health. It’s up to you to research what’s good and what’s bad for you.
    By the way, I agree with Jessen, you obviously have a talent for writing, get your own domain if you can, you will rank better with it. (Try and get a com or org). Good luck with your new website. Ches

    Hi Erin! That’s a very good question, and it’s really important. Grass fed milk/butter/meats have a higher ratio of omega3 oils/omega 6 oils in the fat. To decrease inflammation in the body (cancer, joint pains, IBS, heart health and brain function) omega 3 fatty acid consumption is vital.

    Hey Scot,

    I see that you have the skills to write an educational post, all that is left is to transfer this niche into your own domain and scale it up. And saturated fats might be a too specialised niche, so i recommend branching it out into food. Hope this helps

    Your post is very interesting as I am over 50 and have been conditioned to feel guilty whenever I eat butter and eggs. I am also old enough to remember when the Atkins diet was first introduced and people were losing a lot of weight by consuming high amounts of fat. What is the difference between grass fed and non-grass fed?
