Does butter cause weight gain? How it affects your diet?

Extremely hight number of calories in butter puts this product at the top of hight calorific fats and oils. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific fats and oils, butter seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other fats and oils.

It is hard to find product with higher calories count in fats and oils. Similar energy amount have only such products as coconut oil, olive oil or palm oil.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If butter contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
