Intermittent Fasting and Buttered Coffee

Posted Jan 06 2013 10:09pm

That’s right, you heard me. Buttered.Coffee.

It doesn’t get much better than that!! Some people know this as Bulletproof Coffee which was coined by David Asprey of The Bulletproof Executive .

David talks at length about things like nasty mycotoxins and mold that grow in non-organic,  single origin coffee beans and how that makes us sick and fat. His qualifications for “good coffee” are extensive.

Here’s how it works:

Take 16 oz of amazing coffee (you can order his blend here ) and blend it with 2 tablespoons unsalted grass fed butter (I recommend Kerrygold Unsalted- Costco and Trader Joes have it the cheapest) and 1-2 tablespoons MCT oil or coconut oil. Be sure the coffee is hot, otherwise it gets nasty.

The whole point of buttered coffee is to act as a meal replacement to extend fasting. For example, you finish dinner at 6 the night before. For “breakfast” you have buttered coffee and then you don’t eat until the 16-18 hour point (ie: you have coffee @ 8am, you break fast at 2pm). This allows your body maximum fat burning and resetting time. It also gives you a full feeling with lots of energy despite only having coffee. I don’t want to explain the science behind it, but Dave says it well here .

Some people think fasting for women can be harmful for hormones. He talks about this here.  I like to do it about once a week (more dairy or caffeine than that and I get a little loopy). It’s a nice treat and a great thing to do for your body.

I would love to hear from others of you who have tried this!!

Also, my dad sent me a new tripod for my camera for Christmas!!! Stuffs about to get real professional around here, let me tell you!

Anyways, I am off to sunny Burbank, California for my dear friend’s baby shower, so I won’t be back blogging until Tuesday. I will miss you all terribly as I soak up some much needed Vitamin D!

Have a great weekend!!

Have you tried buttered coffee? What did you think?
