So I tried a personal experiment.
I Love Butter, its one of those things I was so happy to reintroduce into my diet.
Unlike some purists, I do ok on dairy. I did a 60 day elimination, and I had no reaction reintroducing Grassfed Raw Milk, Grassfed Cheese and Grassfed Dairy. In fact, I felt better with them. As my Ancestry puts me squarely in Dairy country being Norwegian and Scottish, ill chalk that up to minor genetic advantage.
That being said, I wanted to see what Large Quantities would do to me. So I decided to test what a megadose of Butter would do to me, at what point does this glorious fuel become a nuisance to my system...
So I decided to ingest a stick of butter, since Kerrygold does double sticks, I ate a little over half a package of Kerrygold Salted Tastiness.
I felt a little odd... munching on just butter...I tried taking it on Spinach Leaves and ended up wrapping some bacon around it and finally just finished it with a spoon.
This was 10 tbsp of Butter, appx 1000 calories of almost pure fat. (plus the fat of a couple pieces of bacon) Im fairly certain its the most fat ive ever ingested in one sitting.
within 2 hours, i found myself getting a little antsy, I was sitting and work and didnt want to stay put, I was doing chair crunches, and sliding my chair back and forth. So i got up and went outside for a walk. I was leaping over things, doing pullups on tree branches, sprints, anything to get rid of some energy. When i returned to my desk after 15-20 min of this, I still had too much energy. no intestinal distress, no negatives so far, ill report back in a day or 3 to see if any longer term effects happen.
... I went home. 2 dogs in the backyard, ran circles around them ,I was practically doing backflips. Went in the garage, threw weights around. Despite sweating, breathing heavy, my body is still saying, GO DO MORE.
I took a break to type this up...
How do I turn it off?
Has anyone else done an overeating fat experiment like this and what were your results?
What potential dangers are there in ingesting 1000 calories of Fat at once?
Ill be in the backyard doing Plyo Jumps.
I have since repeated this experiment with an Entire Block of Kerrygold. I honestly didnt want to finish it, my body said too much. It went pretty much the same way as before, super energy(luckily not on a work day). I ran 3 miles in what I think was record time(didnt time it) and later I did have looser stool, not liquid, just not as solid as usual. Thats the only thing I was able to determine happened. I immediately followed it by a very energetic 24hr fast.
I was VERY Warm after the entire block.
