Butter? Mayo? Cheese?

I know their thought of as "bad" but a few people i've overheard in real life have said they actually arent, they contain good fats. I think cheese is more carbs/bit of protein focused
 
 
 
 
Providing you get a lighter mayo, and a unsalted butter. I eat a low fat cheese spread mixed in pasta dishes too
 
 
 
 
I mean i literally dont eat mayo cause i dont like it, but a blob of butter in cooking does make things nicer.  So is butter a bad average occasional or actually beneficial thing ?:)

    Theres no good fats in those mate there all saturated fats.
     
    Are you getting mixed up with Omega fats?  they are found in fish , avocados , nuts ,oils, flax, those type of things.

    Does cheese contain 'fats' or high calories?     + then some mild amounts of good protein/carbs?
     
     
    It was mainly butter I was asking for, as I was told it had some good fats in and that dairy (milk butter cheese) were all good to consume.
     
     

    And that the main culprate the way its modernly understood was more sugar compared to fat
     
     
     
    (obviously be eating the better types of fats, but like butter for example being in towards the good end of fats)
     
     
     
    ty for the help pretty much my last question:)

    Depends on which mayo etc. I use Farringtons mayo which is made using rapeseed oil. Contains 4.5g saturated fat per 100g.

    I like all three. Butter on wholemeal (only) bread, toast and wraps, mayo with chicken or tuna, and my biggest weakness is cheese. All eaten in moderation of course

    Butter fine.
     
    There is nothing wrong with saturated fat. Butter is a good source of this, as is a very dense fat source. 
     
    You may have heard the talk behind grass fed butter being high in omega 3's than grain fed butter. Although it is still out there for debate. 
     
    I'd rather have butter than mayo.

    Cheese has as much fat as protein I believe. Butter is higher in fat and f all protein.
     
    Who doesn't love cheese but I've had to cut it out while cutting. I just can't eat a little of it lol and it takes up way too many calories out of my daily total.

    I have mature cheddar now and again for a "treat" but I only have 35g which is around 144 cals, just enough for 2 ryvita and just enough to ease the cheese craving, I make it fit my calories too so I don't go over my allowance.
    My favourite cheese is stilton...I have had to avoid it altogether because I know if I buy it I will eat it all  I have promised myself some at xmas.

    Depends on your goals, some saturated fat is good,some would argue  that a diet totally free from saturated fats isnt healthy.
    "Bad fats" is a bit of a misnomer , you can get so called good fats that have been damaged through processing and this can be detrimental to long term health.
    Personally I believe that fats in their natural form are better.
    I eat butter, I would love still be able to buy grass fed butter but this isnt as available as it was.
    Anchor New Zealand butter used to be grass fed but they now use milk produced in the U.K. where cattle are fed on cereals as well as grass. 
     
    I love cheese but have to restrict my intake as I can easily over eat it.
    I cant stand low fat mayo I prefer to eat less of the full fat version taste wise.

    Ah okay so in simple terms these fats are good for you in moderation, and these 3 are among the better choices as well.
     
    So get fats in more pure forms butter being a higher one, and cheese/mayo being decent as well- rather than all awful ways you can get hold of these fats in ready meals/junk food etc.
     
     
    My logic and understanding is right?:)
     
     
    thanks guys
     
     
    but get them in their more pure form e.g butter, mayo, cheese, are all good forms of saturated fats.

    Saturated fat from grass fed cows contains higher omega 3 (as opposed to the high omega six from grain fed cows).  So if your worried about it, go for butter from grass fed cows.
     
    I don't eat it because I don't like it (prefer the taste of olive oil spreads).
     
    IMO, there is no such thing as 'bad' food.  All food is good for you, it's just timing and whether it suits your current goals (and not over eating it).

    3 items I always have in the fridge.. Unless you're prepping for a contest, I wouldn't worry too much about those foods, as long as you're not going over board and having all 3 with every meal
