    How much butter are we allowed per day? I have rea the book and I though it was as much as we like but since cream has to be under 4 oz isn't butter the same as cream?

    You'd think so wouldn't you, the original '72 Atkins made no reference to the allowed portion of butter, but did he mean it to be included in the 40z dairy? don't know. The only thing I've ever had a problem with was cheese.

    I keep all my dairy for the day within the 4oz allowance.

    I have found that if you invest in a REALLY good quality non stick pan then it drastically reduces the amount of fat that you need to use for cooking which means you can use your dairy elsewhere.

    I cannot have cheese at all though, my body really hangs on to that sucker!! haha!

    Thanks everyone- in that case I will stick to my olive oil when cooking :)
