Butter contains one ingredient: CREAM. Sometimes they add salt.

Margarine is made from a slurry of disgusting augmented oils from plants that generally don't contain much oil. It was developed as a lubricant, but is "suitable for human consumption". Since it is made of "vegetable" oil (before being altered), it is marketed as health food. Stay far, far away from it whenever possible.

I.E. this guy:


As much as possible though, avoid margarine. Both are very unhealthy, but butter is the lesser of the two evils by a mile.

Unless you're keeping calories down, there's no other reason why you couldn't do that. It's all good, healthy, useful calories. Just a lot of them

There's nothing "evil" about butter. It's just cream. Good, healthy saturated fat. It will give you energy, increase your healthy cholesterol level. There's nothing bad about butter, there's everything bad about margarine.

Wait a minute. Hold the phone. Halt the horses. Delay the carousel. So you're saying that eating butter is not bad for you? Not in the least?

If that really is the case, then coz I absolutely love butter. Haha but yeah I guess it's just a matter having too much of it = fattening. Too much of anything is generally bad, after all.



Have you guys heard the old joke about butter though? If not then

Spoiler!

Butter is basically the fat extracted from milk. Is drinking milk considered unhealthy?

The issue with butter is fat. Fat has many more calories per gram than protein or carbohydrates. 1 gram of fat has more than TWICE the calories of 1 gram of protein or carbohydrates.

Eating fat doesn't make you fat. Eating too much makes you fat. Since fat is more calorie-dense, it's easier to eat too many calories with fattier foods.

The margarine people have marketed it as the healthy choice and the education system and health care system have propagated that myth and failed us all.

so you are telling me that you would think rat poison is good for you if it was fortified with omega's and vitmamins? extreme, yes, but margarine is synthetic. ask yourself if you would eat trans fat or olive oil. it is the same comparison. there are a lot of companies that say no trans fat on their margarine containers, but i would be very skeptical about what processing techniques/additives they add to make margarine, margarine.
