Saturated –saturated fat–what is that anyway?

Our brain and body cannot survive without these fats. Our brain chemicals are manufactured from them.
“Essential” fatty acids are dietary products that our body does not make for itself. Thus “essential”. They are found in butter and egg yolks.

Is butter healthier than margarine?
Margarine is made from petroleum – oil! As is gasoline, plastic, and petroleum jelly. Whipped up to look yellow–voila we have fake butter! With no essential fatty acids for our brains to be fueled with.
If I search the phrase “eliminate saturated fat completely” I see three articles that begin with the statement that there is no need to eat saturated fat because our body makes all we need.

I personally know someone who has lost 35 pounds in the last four months, eating a high fat diet. However, she only consumes grass fed milk and grass fed butter. She chooses grass fed meat products as well, and buys the highest fat content in ground beef.

If you consume dairy, try to get the best pasture fed butter and grass fed milk. I was in Jons supermarket the other day and counted half a dozen brands of delicious butter on the shelf.
