Not sure if this is the place but I need to confess. I was raised Catholic. I just made a bag of Act II Butter Lovers Popcorn (not the best choice but it was on sale this week) and then poured ghee, yes ghee, all over it. Then I made another bag and did exactly the same thing. I have a history of doing bizarre things with food.
I've been tracking faithfully for the last four days and I've been coming in at the low end of my calorie range and at or below the low end of my fat range. I'd just finished a fairly tough bootcamp workout so I guess something in my body/brain finally broke and said feed me & feed me fat NOW! I'm still within my calorie range for the day and 11g (~15%) over my fat range so averaging it out over the week I'm not doing bad but that was an awful lot of sat fat in one sitting, i think I can hear my arteries clogging as I type. Why oh why didn't I reach for the olive oil :-(
I guess the take-away is don't cut too much too fast or the backlash will kill you, literally. On the plus side I feel better about it already. Confession is good for the soul. Now I just have to remember to eat enough healthy fat every day.
