    Help Shut my CICO Friend Up - THE GHEE CHALLENGE

    Please let me know any risks you foresee in me drinking 1000kcal of melted ghee (about 140g) every morning for two weeks just in order to prove a point with my CICO buddy.

    Seriously, I've had it with this guy. I swear he has dreams about having sex with CICO professors doused in Coke Zero. All he does is walk around like a doofus saying that you can lose weight by reducing calories, that the source of the calories doesn't matter.

    I'm going to prove him wrong by drinking 140g of melted ghee (or equivalent in melted butter, macadamia oil, olive oil, etc) in addition to my regular diet, and show him that I didn't put on the several kg of fat he is expecting I will.

    FOR SCIENCE!!!

    Keep a photolog.

    Also, ask him to predict in advance exactly how much weight you will gain by ingesting an *EXTRA* 1000 calories a day. You can make your prediction.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    This is not for science. This is for complete and utter nonsense.

    I think you might enjoy Sam Feltham and his 5000 cal challenge.

    Randomcow, what makes you think that an extra 1000 calories a day will not make you gain weight?

    There's a difference between treating every calorie as a calorie no matter from where, and thinking that there are somehow "good calories" you can consume till the next blue moon with repercussions.

    You're just on the other end of the deluded scale.
