    What the heck??

    What kind of blender should I be using here? And is there some other method I don't know about??
    I use a manual whisk, rotated quickly between my palms, and it works perfectly. No need for fancy gadgets.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    Could somebody please ban the spambot?
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Agreed. That last "comment" was one of mine from last December. Bot for sure. Please ban!

    I have an n=1 example of whether bp coffee is a fat-gainer calorie bomb:

    I'm currently on Leptin reset, and I have about three more weeks of it. Compared to my old SAD days, on leptin reset I've doubled my fat, doubled my protein, cut dairy and sugar to near zero, and added in about 300 calories more per day. As part of reset, I've been downing a bp cocoa* every single day, which is a 300 calorie bomb, 250 of it pure fat. I figured that I would gain a bit of weight, and then have to lose it later. There's a bit of up-down with the water weight, but as of yesterday I've lost 2.5 pounds since Jan 15, and 6.5 pounds since I went Primal last on Halloween. These are supposed to be tough pounds, given my stats (see sig). This is only with moderate ~2 mile/day walking. I don't think the bp coffee/cocoa is a weight gainer.


    * 12 oz water + 2 tablespoon ghee + 1 teaspoon coconut oil + 1 tablespoon cocoa + stevia + cinnamon.

    Drinking bulletproof yerba mate, blended with coconut milk and coconut oil. Also added cinnamon.

    On my second mug this morning!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    I just bought a bag of his coffee but maybe there is something more local to me (NYC) or maybe something I can find at Whole Foods or other coffee shops that is more accessible that I don't have to get shipped.
    Hey, Anne. I'm in NYC and I'm using Miravalle from Gimmie Coffee.

    For folks in Northern CA (or anywhere if you choose to order online), Old Soul Coffee Company has a few wet processed coffees they sell (Guatemala and a few others). Good stuff. Their beans are sold at Whole Foods (at least in Sacramento/Roseville, CA) as well.
