    Why do so many people think you have to go low fat to get healthy? The opposite is true. Yes, it is a lot of calories, but don't you know the meaning of moderation? The fats are healthy ones (PLEASE don't substitute margarine for the butter!) and there are very few carbs. My bloodsugar will like it. - 11/9/11
