Okay, so I've been trying to do a clean bulk and get no more than 100 grams of carbs a day. The trouble is getting all the calories is a real bitch when you have limited founds. The way I've been getting extra calories is by eating roughly 5 table spoons of butter a day. I cook with butter as much as I can and sometimes I just eat it by the spoonful for calories. I've also bought some coconut oil for calories, but in the long run it may be better to just drop the coconut oil since it's more expensive than butter. My question is, would it be cheaper if I switched to eating lard instead of butter? How is lard when it comes to trans fat, saturated fat, calories and price when it compared to butter? I have never once bought lard so I do not even know how much lard roughly cost at the store.
