Probably not. New research has shown that eating low fat pructs is bad for you and eating real butter from grass fed cows is really good for you and also, believe it or not, can make you lose weight!

Ninety-nine million Americans have high cholesterol, and most of what they know about their condition is probably wrong. We’ve asked medical experts to weigh in on seven common cholesterol misconceptions.
Myth: Cholesterol is bad
Truth: Cholesterol is like cake, good in moderation. It’s misleading to call cholesterol an evil, artery-clogging fat because cholesterol performs a lot of important functions.
Myth: A low-fat diet is best
Truth: Bring back the butter. Research is challenging the decades-old notion that saturated fat — found primarily in meat, butter and cheese — is the leading cause of clogged arteries and heart disease. While saturated fat does increase LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, it also increases HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Plus, there are other dietary villains — such as too much sugar and carbohydrates — that can also lead to a buildup of artery-clogging particles. A study published last year in theAnnals of Internal Medicine found no link between eating saturated fats and increased risk of heart attacks. Foods high or low in saturated fat can be harmful, beneficial or neutral, depending on the type of food, says Dariush Mozaffarian, M.D., a coauthor of the study and dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. A low-carb diet — meaning low in foods like white bread, white rice, potatoes, crackers and sugar — is more effective for raising “good” cholesterol and reducing triglycerides, he says. Adding healthy fats, such as nuts and olive oil, can also help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke
This is from Christine Cronau, the LCHF guru and one of the best.
The low fat craze was supposed to help us lose weight and boost our health, but it has done the opposite. We are now fatter than ever, and our health system is in crisis.
Contrary to popular belief, we have been eating natural, saturated fat for millions of years, without obesity, and without heart disease; these ailments only cropped up in the early 1900s. Why? It’s been blamed on saturated fat, so did we suddenly start eating more? We didn’t. In fact, our saturated fat consumption came down, but we did start producing processed vegetable oils, and we also started mass producing sugar. Between 1890 and 1920, sugar consumption doubled because we saw the birth of the very first confectionery companies.
LCHF is simply a lifestyle that emulates a more natural, ancestral diet; before we adopted low-fat mania. It means less carbohydrates, moderate protein, and plenty of natural fats like butter and coconut oil.
Why LCHF isn’t a diet…Diets are about deprivation. LCHF is about indulgence. Diets are about feeling hungry. LCHF is about feeling satisfied, always. Diets perpetuate fat phobia. LCHF embraces fat. Dieting induces cravings. LCHF does the opposite. Dieting is hard. LCHF is easy. Dieting creates addictions. LCHF cures addictions. Diets often lead to binges. LCHF is about satiety. Diets are pure drudgery. LCHF is fun. Dieting is tasteless. LCHF is delicious. Diets can leave us feeling tired and worn out. LCHF is all about energy. Diets create nutrient deficiencies. LCHF is nourishing. Diets breed failure. LCHF makes success easy. Diets normally see the weight come back. LCHF is for life.

Ever since we privately started drinking Bulletproof™ coffee and eating the LCHF way, we have been wanting to have some type of creamer to put in our coffee instead of the dangerous ones they have in stores now with hydrogenated oils in them. It was also too much of a hassle to bring the butter and coconut oil or MCT oil to work and then mix it.
We have tried for a long time to produce the creamer that we now call Swedish Nektar™ since it has a smooth taste of vanilla, carmel, dark chocolate or cinnamon and tastes so good that you can drink it right out of the bottle. Each serving will give you approximately 2 tablespoons of butter from grass fed cows and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
With the rise of the LCHF (Low Carb – High Fat) movement and Bulletproof™ coffee there has been a rising need for something that incorporates these two movements into the convenient and healthy coffee creamer. This creamer is called “Swedish Nektar”, Swedish because of the founder’s origin and recipe, and with its smooth taste it is like nectar in your coffee. The creamer can also be used in tea as well as hot cocoa.
Another health movement that is more and more popular all over the world, not only among the population but also among scientists and nutrition experts is that we should be eating more healthy butter and oils and go away from low-fat foods which, it seems, has been making us fatter with more diseases like diabetes over the last 50 years of promoting low-fat and whole grains.
Research has shown that eating butter effects our cholesterol in a way we didn’t anticipate and the studies show that eating butter actually raises the good (HDL) cholesterol and many patients have been able to get rid of their statin drugs, including myself.
With “Swedish Nektar” you will get enough butter and coconut oil that will give you satiety and energy that lasts for hours from each cup. Also when you get that amount of fats your hunger feelings will go away, hence eating less. Eating less = lose weight. People who do Intermittent Fasting (IF) for up to 72 hours have done it with just using our creamer as is or in coffee during that time.
With Swedish Nektar you will have the convenience of bringing your creamer to work, to coffee shops, anywhere you want and get a smooth nourishing cup of coffee each time.
Swedish Nektar does not contain any hydrogenated oils no artficial flavoring.
