If you’ve read my book or my newsletters for some time, you know I’m a big fan of REAL butter… and NOT margarine. Eat the right foods to make your body a 24 hr fat burning machine

In fact, I would NEVER, EVER even think about touching margarine with a ten foot pole… and even these new fancy so-called “cholesterol lowering” margarines still contain some trans fats and inflammatory refined oils.  I would NEVER touch those either.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been at certain restaurants and been horrified to find that they don’t even have real butter…. instead, they have nothing but artery-clogging trans fat laden margarine!  Yuck. No thanks.

I’ve also been shocked to find that some people (a LOT of people) are still confused about the whole butter and margarine thing.  In case you’re still confused, let’s clear this up now… the debate has actually been over for YEARS now, and I’ll make it real simple:

Butter is healthy (if you choose the right type) … Margarine is deadly!  Simple as that.

I know that’s a bold claim to say that butter is healthy…but it’s true, as long as you choose organic grass-fed (pastured) butter, and NOT butter that came from confinement feedlots (CAFOs) from cows fed corn.

In fact, butter is one of the best natural sources of the healthy fat conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that actually helps you to build muscle and lose fat.  Butter is also a good source of the healthy fats, MCTs, and also omega-3’s in grass-fed butter too.
