Where are my zero-calorie butters, creams, lards, oils, and fats?

We have very effective artificial sweeteners that give the flavour of sugary foods without the calories. Why have we been so much less successful at creating the taste of fatty foods without the calories? Where are my zero-calorie butters, creams, lards, oils, and fats? [more inside]

How useful is fat _really_?

Fat: Insulation, padding, and storage. But are there any drawbacks to having low bodyfat that I might encounter? I'm lowering bodyfat - currently in the realm of fitness but perhaps going to touch on the realm of vanity. There seem to be no drawbacks currently, any exceptions? How much would the benefit be and how much fat involved? Are there optimum amounts (such as a point beyond which increased fat doesn't increase how long you could survive without food)? To what extent (any?) could fat from previous rich eating help nutritionally balance an unbalanced diet later on? To what extent could it not? [more inside]
