Just a head's up for anyone who finds that their cholesterol levels are strikingly elevated and also consumes a lot of butter and/or cream. Clearly there is variation between individuals and many can churn through (so to speak) the amount of butter I was eating with no differences in their lipid profile. For those who are affected, this may be something to consider.

Are you eating butter from grass fed or grain fed cows?
For me, my numbers went from,
paleo, without extra intentional butter- hdl- 62 ldl - 211 vldl - 20 trig - 101
post paleo + half a stick - 1/4 butter daily (grass fed) hdl- 89 ldl - 201 vldl - 10 trig - 48
