Which is better for reaching fat burning zone-- Ghee or RAW butter?

I don't know that the price of non-fat milk would change, only the amount produced and sold. Milk, in Canada anyway, is roughly the same price regardless of fat content. I would imagine that producers would simply shift their product mix. As it... (more)

Personally, I would try to eliminate it for a month, then add it back in. If there is no change, then you're good. If you can't do a month, then try at least 2 weeks before adding it back in.
