I'll just have to get a little more exercise to fight the gut expansion common to my people (middle age white guys who work in offices).
 
kerry gold is some tasty stuff

i use it on some animal protein as well

slather that on steak off the grill or a roasted chicken and yummy

during the week i usually use coconut oil, coconut milk and a bit of stevia in my coffee

the ceremonial buttered coconut oil concoction is much easier on the weekends

because time and clean up

as you age exercise and metabolism are pretty important

hypertension and diabetes are rampant

i pencil in exercise and use some of the simple carbs sparingly

You can experiment with horseshit but it has to be expensive enough and you need to use at least three kitchen appliances.
 
just to be clear i'm not endorsing this guy or his products, i can (and do) get good coffee and butter here

i am endorsing the process of incorporating healthy fats into your diet and in this case through coffee/tea

however i do cop to using some kitchen technology

i own and use on occasion a drip coffee maker, a french press, a k-cup rig, a blender, a hand held whisk and a stove top whistler kettle

Were they professionally polarized? Because that can misalign your headlights.

 
I keep the bucket in a lead lined box in the trunk. I had it on the passenger seat once and we were nearly killed.

hard boiled eggs are great

when i have regular coffee i have two hb eggs (one yolk i toss to my dog) and a granny smith apple

they travel well too

the coffee can depend on how much gf butter and which oil you use

coconut is tasty and good

the mct is more potent

i'd suggest incorporating more healthy fats into your diet

your body will adjust and thank you for it

i like coconut, udo's, fish/krill, etc

just be care with mct

I tried it, but I'm just not on board with the bulletproof coffee. I was still hungry later and it didn't feel that much different. Maybe I need to do a week of it, but I don't have that kind of patience for a new routine.

I've been into hard boiled eggs recently as my morning snack. Which is really odd because i've never really liked them before.

my experience i think that this (and bulletproof coffee) is a meal replacement

it's loaded with healthy fats and this product (which i haven't tried) has egg yolk too (it may require cold shipping)

from their faq

Should I still eat breakfast? My mom always told me breakfast was the most important meal of the day. I think Coffee Blocks is the perfect breakfast. I use Coffee Blocks as a meal replacement and then eat when I get hungry. The best way to decide is to have a Coffee Block first thing and then, if you are still hungry, eat a healthy breakfast. Again my general rule is have a Coffee Block for breakfast and eat a healthy meal when I get hungry.


when i have a large cup of bp coffee (16 oz at 7 am) it usually gives me good energy and i don't get hungry until 1 or 2 pm

i believe this is/was a kickstarter project and the prices may come down eventually

that said, there's no way around the fact that they're expensive (regardless of product and convenience) and that may kill this idea

i make a version of this {#Arrowd} every morning in my kitchen for a fraction of that cost

With the Tassimo system we have the cost runs about 75 cents a cup at the top end and around 50 cents at the low end. Not a bad cup of coffee either. I usually have a Kona blend that goes for 62 and a half cents a cup...Some days I go nuts and have 2 cups.
