Back to BC-
The satiety from 8:30 am to lunchtime at 2pm
A way to get at least some coconut oil without gagging..
the mental alertness coffee gives me after switching to decaf for long..
maybe my weight is finally starting to budge w/this?
This makes me feel like sh*t! if I do anything physical within hours of consuming it if it's the only thing I've had. It's hard to walk even a 1/2 hour. One time I tried working out a couple hours after having it and I could barely get out 10 reps of exercises that I could usually do 25 of or more. I feel like my muscles get very tense and it's hard to exert any energy.
Maybe it has been brought up before but fat is not a good energy source. Having some carbs or even a fasted state in the morning works way better for me.
Drinking my first BC right now, and it is tasty. I started with just butter, I don't have MCT oil and coconut oil can mess me up so I wanted to go slow. I blended two hearty tablespoons of butter into one mug of coffee. It worked brilliantly. Though between grinding the beans, using an Aeropress, and blending this fatty concoction it made such a mess, ha!
But it is definitely filling. I made breakfast just in case, ate the two strips of bacon (I mean come on) but only ate about one scrambled egg. And still have half the coffee. I'm definitely trying this tomorrow alone.
I've tried this coffee for the past few days, and I'm not quite sold on it. I brew about 6oz in my Aeropress with cinnamon and then chuck in about 3 TB of unsalted kerrygold and 1 tsp of coconut oil. I then add a few drops of stevia extract and since I don't have a hand blender I just use a wisk. It ends up tasting pretty decent, but I still feel hungry a couple hours later. I've also gained about 3 lbs since I've started drinking it, even though I've been using it as a breakfast replacement. What I usually eat for breakfast is leftovers, eggs, or Trader Joe's gluten free chicken sausage.
As a side note, I have noticed that I tolerate this coffee drink better - no stomach discomfort at all with the butter added.
Anyone tried ghee instead of butter? Taste the same?
Been drinking this since Sunday....most excellent!
