I don't think it's a fat adaption thing if you've been eating paleo for a couple years. It may relate to bile production. Have you had any blood work done? You may have elevated liver enzymes or bilirubin.

Eva, If you are buying salted butter, you are not going to know it is rancid until you cook with it and your food tastes "off". Unsalted, pastured butter will be really golden yellow (lots of VitD in it is the payoff), and will taste terrible... (more)

Are you making a comparison between visceral and subcutaneous fat? Or did you mean saturated? I don't see the comparison. All fats can become visceral or subcutaneous.
