    BulletProof Coffee

    Hi,

    Long time lurker, first time poster so be a bit gentle!!!

    I have been on the wagon for 3 weeks tomorrow. So far have lost over 7kg(15lb) and feeling good.
    I first heard of this concoction a couple of days ago and tried it over the weekend. Loved it. As a start I used a little less butter than what was mentioned and also some heavy cream.
    My question is if you don't have the suggested oil would it be ok to use coconut or macadamia oil as a replacement.
    Also, in the article it is mentioned to use 80g of butter which is a hell of a lot, does anyone else use a similar amount?

    Ta.
    Michael

    When I first started PB, I thought that eating a lot more fat in general was odd, but one gets used to this quickly. Coconut oil and Macadamia Oil are just fine to consume. You could also add some Extra Virgin Olive Oil to that list.

    When first starting out, eat lots of fat and a good amount of protein to keep you satiated between meals. In 2-4 weeks you'll be fully adapted to this way of eating and wonder why you didn't start this sooner.

    Keep us posted.

    I just started making this on Friday myself (we must have seen the same thread). Loving it. I am also putting about 1/2 tbl spoon of Coconut oil in it. Using the Magic Bullet to mix it....

    I personally would go for the coconut oil. Heating nut oils is just a bad idea.

    On second thoughts....I was regurgitating acidic, oily coffee all day. Maybe not such a great idea. I also felt naseous for most of the dsy which was weird.

    I tried it this morning! I am someone who would never steer from my heavy whipping cream and this is pure genius! Very good!

    Filled my mug with coffee and then put it in the container that came with my hand blender. Added 2 Tbsp Kerrygold unsalted butter and 2 Tbsp coconut oil (both from Trader Joe's) and blended for a couple of minutes. So good... tastes like a coconut latte... but not too overpowering just a hint of coconut.
