Today I want to talk about the benefits of butter in your diet. Most people like adding butter to their foods. Of course, you cannot use butter in the restricted calorie phase of the HCG diet, but once you go into the maintenance phase, load up on the butter. Make sure of course, it is free from antibiotics and bovine growth hormone, and from grass fed cows when available. Hal Huggins, the famous biological dentist who has carried on Dr. Weston Price’s work, eats a quarter of a pound of butter a day. You do not absorb a nutrient unless a fat is attached to it. On a low fat diet, you starve to death. I was fortunate to be able to have dinner with Hal Huggins in Chicago about 4 years ago, and it was a special treat to be in the presence of such a true pioneer fighting for holistic dentistry.
