I'm looking for something that's good melted, like on baked potatoes or corn on the cob. Of course I'd prefer butter, but the doc says I should lower my cholesterol a bit.

Any suggestions?

I thought the medical consensus had shifted against recommending margarine?

you can get fake butter (ie margarine) without the transfats, but your doctor is wrong when he recommends against butter to lower cholesterol levels. eating cholesterol doesn't make your cholesterol levels go appreciably higher as your body produces more cholesterol than you eat.

if you really want to lower cholesterol eat healthy (good protein, lots of veggies, healthy fats like butter, but in moderate amounts 1, 2 tbsp a day) and exercise.

They have shown conclusively that the margerine I was fed as a kid is much, much worse then butter.

They now have new margerine invented like 2 years ago, its safe!

I think I'll stick with butter.

If you really need to cut out the butter, just find a different way to enjoy foods. Try plain yogurt and chives on a potato, that kind of thing.

there's really no reason to cut out butter completely. just limit intake.
