Fat keeps you full. You know that part already, right?
If you want yet another advantage in reaching a noble goal -- the ability to make it from meal to meal without snacking in between -- "bulletproof" coffee could be your thing.
I used to put heavy cream in my coffee. It's a great fat source, but, wow, did it ever snot me up. Every single time, I'd get all phlegmy/gross. It just wasn't working for me.
So I switched to black, and I like black coffee, but it has no fat.
Enter (drumroll, please) "bulletproof" coffee. I should make clear that it is not my recipe. I am just the messenger here. In fact, I am not even going to recopy the recipe, so as to give its owner his due. Just go here and enjoy.
Essentially, it is coffee with butter (unsalted, please; grassfed, please; Kerrygold is a good go-to grassfed butter) and coconut oil in it. It is freaking delicious, and the fat is beautiful for keeping you charged up and full.
And I have no idea if it is responsible, but I got a 20-pound PR on my two-rep back squat tonight less than an hour after drinking a mug of this stuff.
Good enough for me.
