I started drinking bullet proof coffee yesterday. I really like it. I wasnt hungery all day & had a ton of enery even after running 4 mile pushing a jogging stroller. Today I had some and the total opposite happen. Was hungery, no energy. Made some more and it didnt help. Was wondering what I was doing wrong ? I make it with a cup of coffee, 1TBS of ghee & 1 TBS coconut and blend it.
BPC is delicious. I drink it daily. I've consumed it twice a day. With that said, it's not magic. It's a very tasty, unique and somewhat beneficial to get a caffeine boost along with quality fats and energy from both the caffeine and MCT's. Again though, it isn't some magic formula. I tend to feel sharper, more satiated and overall improved cognitive function, but that's an N=1 thing. Many people notice the same thing from simply eating breakfast or just drink coffee.
As I say in many posts, it depends on your goals. If you're looking to lose fat, BPC isn't something I'd recommend. If you're trying to "extend a fast", BPC with fruit or protein defeats the entire purpose. I sometimes make it with blended egg whites, which gives a very creamy and foamy texture. I do this because of texture and taste...I'm not trying to extend a fasted stated as the 4-6 egg whites (20 grams of protein or more) are going to interrupt that.
Dave Asprey's initial idea of BPC went along with his idea of Bulletproof Fasting. This still requires no carbs or protein no matter how many MCT's you're getting.
Did you get enough sleep last night? Did you eat anything at all when you drank it the other day or today? What did you eat yesterday? Did you have more stress today than yesterday? Lots of factors could be at play here.
On my bp coffee mornings, I dont usually eat anything until im hungry around 1pm or so. My guess is the fruit. If I eat fruit early in the day, I tend to be hungrier in general on those days than if I had bacon or eggs. Just my personal observations...
I do eat a piece of fruit with it. Yesterday was a stressful day. Maybe excising made me more hungry today. I also will ran 4.5.miles & strenghtthe trained today. I will keep try it. Plus its pretty good. :)
1 tbsp ghee and 1 tbsp coconut oil, isn't really much fat, I use 4tbsp butter and 3 tbsp MCT oil in 20 oz coffee. The effect does vary a bit from day to day in terms of energy, but this never makes me hungry. In fact I only eat solid food in one meal at dinner.
Try more fat. MCT oil is also more potent that coconut oil in terms of MCT content.
Butter actually has a good amount of vitamin a, some d and k2 and some omega 3s so it's not completely devoid of nutrition. 700 calories though. Works for me.
