BPC makes you bulletproof …

BulletProofCoffee is basically coffee with a combination of coconut oil/butter/cream.


*Sorry for the blurry photo, it was taken VERY early this morning …

I never would have thought that I’d drink coffee with butter, never mind like it. I ♥ it!! I drink one or two cups early morning and then have brunch at about 11 – 12 am. No more early morning munchies or hunger pains, it’s enough to keep me going for hours. Fat feeds, obviously.

Here’s how I make mine:

1 heaped teaspoon coffee, 1 heaped teaspoon Xylitol, big blob of double thick cream, sliver of butter and some gelatine powder. pour some boiling water over and stir quite a bit to get the butter dissolved. Drink before it gets cold.

You can even add some vanilla/caramel essence/extract if you’d like.

Yum Yum.

Stuff I’ve learned about food and eating.

Since doing the “kick start your metabolism” and “3 day diet plus” plans, I’ve learned a few things about dieting that changed my perception about food and eating.

If you have any crazy thoughts that you’d like to share, please feel free.

  • Black, bitter coffee for breakfast won’t kill you (even if it’s only black, bitter coffee for breakfast)
  • You won’t rust from the inside even if you drink 3 liters of water
  • Black, bitter coffee is actually not so bad
  • You can survive on a piece of hake and fresh tomatoes for lunch
  • You won’t die without bread, rice or pasta
  • Black, bitter coffee is actually not so bad
  • The cookies will still be there next week, you don’t have to eat it now
  • The stores are stocked with condensed milk and cookies, you don’t have to eat it all NOW as if it’s the last on earth ever
  • One slice of toast with a teaspoon of peanut butter is fine as breakfast
  • You can only prepare veggies in so many ways
  • Black, bitter coffee is actually not so bad
  • If you fall off the wagon, the best thing to do would be to get back on it as soon as possible
  • The torture machine is not going anywhere, you have to get on it at some stage to see your progress (or lack off)
  • Water is actually quite nice (no, you won’t rust)
  • No matter how many cooked eggs you peel, there will always be 90% of them that will not be deshelled smoothly
  • Cravings are a bitch
  • You will pick up weight if you don’t sleep enough
  • You won’t die from starvation if you don’t eat this piece of biltong immediately
  • Black, bitter coffee is actually not so bad

This list could be added to, I’m sure.

Ever since the emotional trauma I experienced in grade 3, I’ve been an emotional eater. I’ve linked emotions to food. Since then, I’ve binged when I was happy, I’ve binged when I was sad, I’ve binged when I was stressed.

I’m glad to say that I think the binging part is mostly over. I do not have that emotional link to food that I had previously. Mainly because I’ve realised that one does not die that easy. Or quick.

Since Feb, I’ve lost 13 kilos. I just have to keep on holding on.

One day at a time. Bitter, black coffee and all.
