    Default Bullet Proof Coffee

    Hi all
    I'm in the news today. Got asked for a view on bullet proof coffee...

    I think the points I sent back were captured pretty well:
    - Butter is not harmful (of course) - it's ignorant to suggest that it is

    - Butter, however, is not that nutritious - it's certainly not a 'superfood'

    - The powerful bit of LCHF is low carb! With protein in everything, the macronutrients that vary are fat and carb. If you go very low carb therefore, fat will go up as a proportion of your diet and you will need to ditch any fat phobia to embrace naturally low carb foods (meat, fish, egg, dairy).

    - If a bullet proof coffee makes you satiated, then it's an OK choice (eggs would be more nutritious however) - just remember to do the low carb bit if you ad lib on fat!

    - Best plan is to eat real food

    Bye for now - Zoe

    It's a meal replacement, really. Haven't had it for ages, but do find it useful before exercise (esp laying over a large ball for Pilates). Avoids me feeling light headed, but I don't feel like I'm about to throw up, either...

    If it is being served in coffee houses consumers will be drinking this as well as eating their normal amount of food/snacks/rubbish, there ain't going to be no weight loss.

    I have one on work days (3 per week ). I'm not an early breakfast person, and I just don't have time to eat at work. So a BC at 10:30-11 am. Lunch at 2-ish or later. Though lately I've been stress-nibbling...weight maintained though. I tend to eat very low carb.

    ^^^^ That's where so many people get "fat is good" so, so wrong.

    But they are so use to a diet high in low fat foods (by their nature, high in carbs) that they will add fat in, rather than substitute with it - and that message is at least equally as important!!
