"butter-like"?

/I think I'll pass-like

Butter is far more healthier than margarine or other processed concoctions.

I don't use a lot of butter on my food, but if this could be a good alternative for cooking or baking butter usage, that would be awesome.

How well does it sculpt though?

The fact they're wearing gloves when showing it off for the camera is a bit disconcerting...

"It's safe!"
"Then rub it on your skin."
"Are you f**king crazy? I like my bowels just the way they are."

I'll pass, thanks.

So far, our attempts to replace butter have led to everything from introducing unnatural, "bad" fats like partially hydrogenated oils and trans fats, to indigestible components like Olestra. Stop helping.

Use less. That's really all there is to it. It's not a secret. It doesn't require food science. It typically applies to just about everything, including butter.

No kidding. If you're eating so much butter that you need a substitute butter vs. margarine isn't the problem.

I do miss the "eat two potato chips, constipation eliminated in 10 minutes" aspect.

... the advantages to using non-butter spreads far outweigh the benefits of dropping a few tablespoons of real butter in your coffee every morning.

WTF?

I've surely seen that image dozens of times before but I'm just now noticing... is that his blood on the faces of the girls behind him?

Or use more. Good old fashioned fats aren't bad for most people who aren't gluttons and give a far better fuel burn and feeling of satiety than anything else.

We freaked out and removed most of the fats our skinny ancestors ate regularly and largely replaced them with sugar and salt.

Sugar in large quantities is poison. Sweet, delicious poison whose overconsumption has direct connections to the obesity epidemic and all it's attendant diseases.

Either his blood or the bird's blood.

Fabio only had a cut on his nose, all that blood is probably from the goose they smacked into.

There is no such thing as "butter-like."
There is butter, and then there are things that are not butter.

Ahh.  I remembered him having broken his nose, and any head wound will bleed a lot, but now that I think about it that probably is mostly bird blood.

It looks and feels like softened butter, and according to the Cornell food scientists, it could be further enhanced with vitamins, milk or plant-based proteins, and other additives so it tastes like butter while being highly nutritional.

I don't get why they stopped selling olestra. I enjoyed the flavor and the weight loss.

With butter, you should probably use more.  Obesity rates have skyrocketed from the days when folks would just put a fist sized knob of butter on a cracker sized slice of toast and chase it with a steak with extra gristle for breakfast.

Fats are calorie dense, but they also fill you up better, allegedly, so it's possible you eat less overall but feel fuller.

I think about the Tom Green interview where they walk in his house and the interior decoration consists of nothing but lots and lots of motorcycles and a massive stereo.

My respect for Fabio actually went up that day.
