From what I can gather, some Paleos prefer to avoid butter due to the dairy association. In my opinion, this is somewhat misguided given that the problem with dairy is the lactose (and possibly casein protein). Butter, by definition, is milk fat... (more)

"Carbs do not make you fat" ... Of course they do. If you keep them below a reasonable threshold you may not put on extra fat but carbs are the driver of the body's fat storage hormone called insulin. Science people, science.

Grassfed, pastured dairy is higher in Omega3 fatty acids and CLA. What kind of Omega3s are in pastured, grassfed dairy?

A good fraction of it is ALA, the omega-3 not given enough credit by paleo folks (because it's the plant-sourced omega-3).

You definitely need to go for full-fat dairy. There isn't really any need to drink milk; most of the dairy folks around here eat is either heavy cream, aged cheese, full fat yogurt, etc. Skim and low-fat milk is really nothing more than sugar... (more)
