No!!! Don’t Eat Sticks of Butter

No!!! Don’t Eat Sticks of Butter

The title of this video is “No!!! Don’t Eat
Sticks of Butter”, instead eat your own body
fat, that’s what’s for dinner.
This video is unlike any other video I’ve
done, it’s just me talking to you, sharing
my experiences on the diet, answering a couple
of questions that come up on my Facebook page,
all the time.
The other star of this little show is Chiquita,
which I mistakenly called a “box turtle” in
the video. Chiquita is a “Red-Eared Slider”.
She is a ketogenic turtle, she loves to eat
real food and so should you. She loves to
eat shrimp and fish, and she’s healthy for
it, and you could be healthy for it too.
The main reason I’m coming to you in this
video is because I get this question a lot.
And it’s not always the framed the same way,
it’s not always phrased the same way, but
it’s an important question. The main question
that people ask me is some variation of:
“What specifically did you eat to lose weight?”
“What can I eat to lose weight?”
“What food do I need to eat to lose weight?”
I even get the question:
“How many sticks of butter do I need to eat
to lose weight?”
Guys, believe me, this is serious business,
it’s funny when people ask me that, but it’s
serious, because they’re coming at it from
a very serious point of view. They see the
title of my main video “Butter Makes Your
Pants Fall Off”, and they think, okay, butter
makes my pants fall off, so therefore I should
eat a lot of butter, but I never said that.
And I don’t want you to do that.
I think of the Low Carb/High Fat Diet (LCHF)
as way to control my appetite. A way to get
my insulin down, so my body will release the
fat that is stored around my belly. In other
words, I use the LCHF diet, and I use fasting
to serve myself, my own fat. My own fat is
what’s for dinner, that’s the food you need
to be eating on this diet. Fat from your belly
and your butt and your chinny, chin, chins.
You need to eat that big belly and the only
way you can eat that big belly, is to turn
your insulin down, keep it down by eating
LCHF foods and fasting.
How much food should you eat?
Answer: Enough.
Enough to turn your appetite off. Eat until
you’re satisfied and when you’re appetite
is down, that means you’re burning fat. If
you’re not hungry that means your body is
not needing nutrition. You should stop eating
at that point. You don’t need to eat. You
don’t need to put gobs of fat on your food.
Eat enough fat, enough protein so that you’re
satisfied, then allow your body to use all
that extra nutrition, that body fat, that
you’ve got around your body.
See, food is not the answer. Food is just
a way to the answer. There is absolutely nothing
that you can eat to lose a hundred pounds.
What you need to do is not eat. Find ways
to turn that (fat storing) system off.
Some of you are looking for every LCHF recipe
that you can find, but I tell people to keep
it simple. Why? Because food is not the issue,
food is just the way to turn your appetite
down. Don’t look for every “fat bomb” recipe
that you can find, so you can eat and eat
and eat. Don’t drink fifty Bullet Proof Coffees
a day.
Eat until you’re satisfied, then stop eating.
See, food is not the answer, food is a way
to get to the answer.
What’s the answer?
As I told you in my “Why Are Fat People Hungry?”
video, the answer is getting your body into
a mode, a low insulin mode, so that it releases
the fat. It releases the fat in your body
for energy. And when it releases the fat for
energy, you will experience a turn down in
your appetite, and I mean a noticeable turn
down. Stop eating.
It’s lunch time, but I’m not hungry. Don’t
It’s dinner time, I’m not hungry. Don’t eat.
If you’re satisfied and you’ve got plenty
of energy and you feel good, why are you eating?
You’re defeating the whole purpose of this
diet. The purpose of this diet is to EAT YOUR
BELLY, not eat the next LCHF recipe. Not eat
the next fat bomb recipe. Not to find some
way to beat the system, by saying, okay, if
fat’s okay, I’m going to have 20 Bullet Proof
Coffees a day. If you’re doing that, you’re
I also get questions about adding fat or protein.
Statements like “I’ve been told if I eat too
much fat, I won’t lose weight and my body
won’t use my fat”.
“Or, I’ve been told I should dramatically
increase my protein.”
Listen, guys, eat enough to be satisfied and
allow your body to tell you when you’re hungry.
If you are eating when you’re not hungry,
you’re eating too much. If you’re eating gobs
of fat, thinking it’s going to make you lose
weight, you’re eating too much. It’s ridiculous.
I’ve always said, eat a high fat percentage,
not a high fat calorie-wise diet. Don’t go
crazy with it. Eat until you’re satisfied,
then don’t eat.
Now I want to talk to you about Fasting.
Everybody wants to know about fasting. Look,
fasting is just your body’s natural way to
get to the fat. As I’ve told you in my video
“Why Are Fat People Hungry?” video, fasting
is the way to get to the fat. If you lower
your insulin down long enough, your body starts
switching over to burning fat, that’s what
it does.
Will fasting turn your metabolism down?
Look, (during fasting), you still supplying
your body with lots of energy, but the energy
is coming from your internal fat.
On the other hand, if you eat a low calorie
diet, but you don’t turn off this insulin
problem, then yes, your body going to slow
down, because it doesn’t have access to that
But when you eat a LCHF diet and you keep
your insulin low, and you’re fasting and keeping
your insulin low, you’re keeping this pathway
to your fat open ALL THE TIME. That’s why
your not going to have a slow down in your
metabolism, because your body still has access
to 100’s of thousands calories, especially
if you’re really fat, you may have a half
a million calories on your body. And if you’ve
got access to them, you’re not going to have
an energy deficit ever, and that’s why you’ll
have plenty of energy and that’s why you won’t
be hungry.
Don’t ruin it by eating too much!! Listen
to your body.
I also have a lot of people write me and they
have gall bladder problems, or they have some
issue that keeps them from doing a High Fat
diet. I understand that, really some people
actually have this issue, some people just
imagine they have this issue, but whether you
have this issue or not, if you can’t do LCHF
diet, then do a real food diet and then fast.
Like I said in my “Fasting and the Fifty Percent
Insulin Problem” video, fasting is 50% more
effective (at lowering insulin) than Low Carb.
Low Carb is great and I believe in it, I’m
an advocate, a strong advocate for it, but
if you can’t do it, for any reason, for whatever
reason, you can still do fasting.
Fasting is easy, you can do a twelve hour
fast. It’s easy. You eat dinner at six, you
get up in the morning and eat breakfast at
six, there’s twelve hours. I think you should
go a lot longer than that, and if you can,
do it. And I’ll tell you a way that you can
do it, but it will probably get me into trouble
with the purists out there, but I don’t care,
I did this the whole time I was losing and
it worked wonders for me.
If you get up in the morning, say you get
up at six o’clock, you normally eat breakfast,
instead have yourself a cup of coffee with
some heavy whipping cream in it. And you’ll
probably be able to delay eating until ten,
eleven or twelve o’clock, which will extend
your fast.
The critics and purists will say, “you’re
eating during a fast”, but tell these people
to kiss you hind end. It works for me, it’s
worked for thousands of people. Yes, you shouldn’t
go crazy drinking a bunch of fatty coffee,
that’s true, but if it extend the fast and
we all know that pure fat food does not raise
insulin that much, and you’re not going crazy
with it, you’re okay.
Look, this is something that is very important,
all these studies that I share in my other
video, they were studies about people doing
fasting on alternative days. Some of those
studies allowed people to eat up to 500 calories
during the fasting day, and they had these
great results.
So the critics are telling me that a cup of
coffee with a couple hundred calories, that
allows me to go another four or five hours,
and get a 16 hour fast every single day of
my life is hurting me? This is towing the
dogmatic line, just like I tell people in
my “Lard Makes You Lean” video, if you can’t
afford organic food, go down to Walmart and
buy yourself something to eat, that you can
eat and that you can afford and you can do
wonders for yourself. If people who are purists
don’t like it, too bad for them. But, you’ll
still lose a hundred pounds and feel healthy.
Your food bill will go down and then you might
even be able to afford the better food.
Listen to your body, do what you’re able to
do, stop listening to these dogmatic purists,
that are going to keep you from getting healthy
because they want to tell you all the things
you can’t do.
Let me tell you something. I ate at Walmart
and I lost 145 pounds. I don’t like Bullet
Proof Coffee, there’s nothing against it,
I like heavy whipping cream. I drank my heavy
whipping cream coffee during fasting times,
I usually limited this to one, maybe two on
a 24 hour fast. I lost 145 pounds.
These people telling you all this politically
correct bull crap don’t know what the heck
they’re talking about, but I do. I don’t care
about all these rules and regulations. Let
me tell you something, if you’re eating better
diet, a whole food diet, and you’re losing
weight, and your blood pressure is coming
down, and your sugar is coming down, and your
weight is coming down and you’ve got your
energy back again, who cares if you’re eating
the pure food or not.
Yes, they’re right, that foods better for
you, no doubt about it. But, if you can’t
afford it, or you don’t have access to it,
to me and you’ll WIN.

  1. Its not rules and regulations its science specifically biology. So drinking heavy whipping cream in the morning breaks the fast for four hours, then you enter fasting again. If you don't explain these things people may drink too often by accident because you are not providing them the information they need to be successful. Its very important to note that amount of time. Like you said there are no rules to how you do this, for example someone could drink two bulletproof coffees a day one in the morning and one in the afternoon but by making note of the rule of thumb four hours people can sneak in a couple of hours of fasting if they choose. I'm just trying to help.

  2. I wish you still made videos. I’ve been following your information. I have dinner for breakfast though and I do a 24 hour fast. I’m down 20lbs in 6 days, my wife’s concerned but I’m just not hungry anymore, I really could probably go 48 hours or more.

  3. I just love love this video. I love heavy cream too and can't afford the organic food neither can i access some of it

  4. What he is talking about is starvation metabolism, spelled out in every biochem textbook. You add protein so you don’t metabolize your skeletal muscle, which is done to produce glucose ( gluconeogenesis) to power cardiac tissue, which can only burn glucose. Fat in the diet curbs hunger. Absence of carbs keeps insulin down which triggers lo blood glucose and hunger.

  5. You look great to me Bob!! You tell those purest people! I agree with you a 120 per cent!!! Thanks so much as its working for meeee!!! 😃😀😂👊🌏

  6. I have tried low calorie diet,failed. intermediate diet failed. so now I'm trying Butter Bob's and intermediate diet. Wish me luck. Hope this one pass. I'm in day 3 and boy I want something sweet but I will stay strong.

  7. Good to see you Bob!!! This is a truly great video. You didn't need the full body shot. Only somebody with problems would think that you were trying to hoodwink us. Quit listening to detractors and negative criticism. You have helped thousands of us. And God Bless you for it! For a video with no notes, etc. this is a remarkable. KEEP GOING.

  8. Great job on the weight but be careful with other areas. My brother in law went down to 125 eating a lot of fat and protein. Couldn’t stop losing weight. He now has bad prostate issues. Many factors here he never exercised most of his life except work. I think he ate no vegetables and is older. Factors that lead to prostate issues. But he is very slim

  9. I am learning all this info barely at the end of year 2018 and u had this information two years ago lol I am so late but happy I found ur videos Sir. U prolly won't see this comment & that's ok I wish you the best to you and your family. ♡💚♡

  10. It also depends on how much excercise you do . If you do regular intense excercise , like bodybuilding for example , you will get into a catabolic state and eat into your muscle if you dont eat more and have fat bombs . It happened to me . I started wasting away . If your a sedentary person then back off the fat bombs . It also depeneds on how lean or how much fat you have on your body . Its not a solid rule for everyone . If you are lean and you excercise, you can eat a lot more , especially fat bombs , otherwise your body will eat itself.

  11. I don't even need this video ur others make a lot of sense I got all the sugars out of my house n crap n bought chicken legs thighs hamburger meat fatty steak olives huge block of real cheese lettuce cabbage lard eating once a day

  12. your delivery,approach and every other word that fits… is superb ! You need to get back and make more vids… (even though you've really said it all )

  13. Walmart normally has a few too many roasted chickens which they make down to clearance before they throw them out at night. If you find when yours is doing this you can get them cheap.

  14. There’s no substitute for fasting. No amount of carb cutting, fat eating, special drinks and pills comes close. Just don’t eat if you’re not hungry. I suffered from psoriasis for 35 years, 30% of my body, I was on every medication possible, methotrexate, Humira, not much improvement. But strict keto (<20 gm of carbs per day), and fast every other day (36 hr fast), my psoriasis disappeared after 3 months. A side affect was also losing 50 kgs.

  15. Bob, in all honesty, I get the feeling that inviting you to a restaurant, social event or group dinner would be just as much of a dry bore as inviting a vegan…though I see your company as much more preferable to that of any vegan on earth 😚

  16. Great job Bob!
    we love watching your incredible shrinking Job videos.. please PLEASE don't pay no mind to the assholes and negative Nancy naysayers.. they are all plum full of shit.. and most likely just jelous of your results because the low carb high fat diet didn't work for them.. most likely because they couldn't figure it out or they enjoyed their junk food more than the desire to lose the fat and get healthy!
    Looking fwd to more future videos❤❤❤

  17. Good mesage Bob. Insulin is definitely the main villain, but peoples habits and lack of discipline is what turns the villain on. Fasting also turns on autophagy, which means the body breaksdown all the damaged tissues which could cause problems if they weren't brocken down.

  18. Thanks Bob. Dropped 40 pounds, A1C is at 5.6, triglicerides at 118, HDL, is up and LDL is over half down from where I began in August. My diabetes doctor has given me an A++. Cancelled all further appointments, to come and see him. Far as he is concerned the Ketogenic diet has healed my diabetes. It was unreadable in August of this year and they really did not understand how that I was still alive. Sure do wish you would resurface. An awful lot of people need you. Thanks for my life.

  19. I love the Berg Keto Intermittent Fast I have learn so much, I also enjoy you Butter Bob So many things you say remind me of my childhood. I remember having tea and toast with Lard as the spread instead of Butter and a little pepper. My great grand parents had a hog farm. Than Crisco made a big splash and my mother used that in stead she got diabetes died in her 80's,. My grandmother and great grandmother lived to be a few months shine of 100 years old.

  20. Butter Bob videos got me interested in Keto and general healthy eating. They initially seemed outrageous until I did some careful research. Now I happily give him the credit (and thanks) for my weight loss and dramatically improved general health. There are an awful lot of nasty, sad and stupid people posting online and it's a shame we lose excellent posters like Bob because of them.

  21. I am brand new to the Lifestyle, today is day 26 … I have found a bottomless pit of Energy, Sound Sleep and discovered I like Celery and Avocados a lot … I am OMAD easy, usually about 5 PM today was 7 PM and I wasn't really Hungry, I just really wanted an Avocado and some Chia pudding … my first weigh in is in 4 days, my buddy is doing what his Dr tells him and taking BP meds and Statins etc and we are going to weigh in together and do our BP measurements.
    I fully expect to still have high BP (and get the lecture) as I am not medicated but I also fully expect to have lost a lot more weight than him, I know I have lost inches (2 1/2") from around my belly as of today, shooting for 3" by the 10th.
    You are correct about the simple meals, I like them so simple I don't have any dishes to wash … and Walmart does have a simple meal that you can pick up if you are on the road .. in the deli section snag a party platter (sliced sausage and cheese) and an Avocado and that is a filling satisfying meal (you won't eat it all), it may have too much protein for the purists but the only carbs come from the Avocado so there is that. (My KETO strips have been dark purple since about day 8)
    When it comes to eating I just fill the void when it needs filling and go do Life the rest of the time.
    Thank you Butter Bob!

  22. I like how he explains this! Someone said, he's no longer on Yt. Does anyone know how he's doing. Is he still doing lchf and I.F. ?

  23. Don't listen to naysayers. There are always going to be some. You successfully lost the weight. You proved it can be done. Great videos! Thanks. I was from Texas and we grew our own food and farm animals. Mom only cooked with lard and she boiled all our veggies and drowned them in butter. We were not fat. But, we were healthy.

  24. I don"t understand wealthy celebrities who eat themselves into wheelchairs: Dom Deluise, Orson Welles, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, etc. When all they needed was keto, and they could have enjoyed their big bucks.

  25. Love your comments. You are a great inspiration to me and others I am sure.
    Keep up the good work.
    Pounds are coming off.🤗

  26. Love your videos. You are so helpful. Can you eat too much fat? I love nuts and was wondering if I could eat plenty within reason.

  27. I don't have a gallbladder but there is a way to digest fat. I take an enzyme with ox bile in it with a meal. I also chew papaya enzymes after the meal. I haven't had the problem of running to the bathroom after a high fat meal since I started doing this. Everyone's body is different so you have to see if it that would work for you. What I'm more concerned about is that I seem to be lactose intolerant so I'm not sure I'll be able to do heavy whipping cream. I'll try it. I may only be able to do coconut milk in my coffee.

  28. I've been on your program for a day or two now I started this morning eat the bacon and eggs breakfast I have a long journey I kept giving myself more and more insulin from the doctor and I could never turn the hunger switch off after a day or two now I'm no longer hungry because I turn the switch off and my blood sugar I noticed it this morning was that 70 it usually sat 200 I haven't seen 70 in a long time I'm going to continue on with your diet my biggest problem was turning the hunger switch off so I can fast thank you butter Bob I've been watching your videos thank you for your tips I went through all my cupboards and got rid of all the carbohydrates and sugary Foods so I'm not tempted to eat when I'm not hungry thank you for turning my Hunger switch off. You opened my eyes as I was going through the supermarket I noticed that all the aisles had nothing but sugar and carbohydrates they systematically got rid of all the fat out of the foods your Walmart video help me cuz I was buying all the wrong Foods like I said I had to turn the switch off thanks again

  29. Butter Bob, Publish a book on Amazon; Just a pamphlet on amazon so we can purchase it. You'll make money and we can find out what you ate, what you did. Or just a book "preaching to us" about what mindset we should be in.

  30. This is one of the best keto videos I've seen. I love how your helping people get healthy. I've lost 20lbs and have 40 (more or less) to go though I'm already happy with how my muscles are responding to the keto diet.

  31. How sad that your pet fish is under a tremendous amount of stress 24 hrs a day trying to get away from a predator. Get him his own tank.

  32. You are so funny! I love your rants!! After two months of researching and just becoming inundated with keto info….I found your videos last week and haven't watched anyone else's channels! You make sense to me….thank you! Tomorrow i start slimming dosn my "chinny-chin-chins"! 😃Lindsay

  33. Love Butter Bob’s down-to-earth mentality. I started today on this diet (lifestyle) and fasted until 4pm. Since I’m not a breakfast person (except on occasion), the intermittent fasting works well with me. Challenge is identifying what I can eat now! 😊

  34. I’m always hungry always, I have been doing strict KETO for the last 2 months and I can go 20 hr on a fast I have lost about 23 lbs give or take a lb but I’m always hungry, I love the way this guy lays it out there straight to the point and no bs and he’s not selling anything

  35. Love your video. I am having weight issues now that I am 53 and going through menopause. The night sweets happen about every twenty minutes and mess with my sleep. I am glad I came across your channel.

  36. Hello Butter Bob Briggs….You are full of common sense and street smarts! You are the best weight loss motivator on the internet by far….I'm blessed to have found you!

  37. This was a great video for me! I've been trying to do OMAD and the last 2+3 hours are the worse for me! I'm going to have a second TB of butter in tea or decaf. Hoping this will help transmission a little easier to my mealtime!! Ty, BB. I'm not going to be afraid of having 3 TB of butter in my fasting day!!

  38. THANKS, Bob. I am looking better and feeling good in just 5 weeks. You know your shit, man. Keep preaching the good stuff!

  39. People who come up with all these excuses are not really ready to tackle their weight problem. People who say, "That is not healthy", do not want to accept that being over weight is not healthy. The quicker you can get rid of that extra weight, the better.

  40. I've been on a medical dryfast to restore thyroid function and I find as soon as I even sip on a liquid I suddenly become hungry whereas before I sipped the liquid I had no hunger or thirst.

    After watching your videos the next time my hunger turned on uncontrollably I drank at least 1/4 cup of olive oil and that killed my hunger real fast and I could get back onto my medical dry fast. Thank you for helping me from going down that slippery slope, away from my self-healing protocol. Right now, just the thought of gong into the kitchen makes me slightly nauseated and right now that is a good thing, thank you,

  41. This video is awsome!! So helpful. This information makes healthy eating and weight loss available to everyone. Easy, simple and achieveable! Thanks so much Bob!

  42. Wow! Im watching this in June of 2019!!!! And this video is 3 years OLD! He’s was AHEAD OF HIS TIME!!

  43. Thanks for saying that about the turtle. Because I have a box turtle and they're not anything like red-eared sliders. I saw that you corrected it. 😁

  44. All 3 fishies still there …
    All 3 fishies still there …
    All 3 fishies still there …

    When does the turtle sleep …
    So the fishies can de-stress?

    All 3 fishies still there …
    All 3 fishies still there …
    All 3 fishies still there …

    Damn, tough being human!

  45. Butter Bob you are awesome! Your advice is true, it's easy to understand and it's said with so much compassion. I love "eat your own fat". I have been attempting the fasting lifestyle for about two months. I do okay once past the first 24hrs but I fail each time on my refeeds. Oddly enough, I've still managed to lose and keep off 10 lbs despite myself. Ive decided to back up to OMADS for with LCHF refeeds for a week and then progress to 48's and then 72's. I have a 140 lbs to lose. I feel I am so close to getting it. I refuse to quit no matter how many times I dont get it right. Thanks again!
