I made bulletproof coffee almost exactly as directed in http://www.bulletproofexec.com/how-to-make-your-coffee-bulletproof-and-your-morning-too/

Very delicious and as expected super filling. Left me not hungry till afternoon.

Here's my comment/question. I've read on some sites that bulletproof coffee is fine as a breakfast or meal substitute though it causes a mild kitogenic (sp?) state.

It's certainly a tasty fast alternative to meal prep if time is tight but I wonder if it is a good idea. It doesn't seem like it fits the Whole30 template. And understanding the template--well maybe I've answered my own question.

Thanks!

Annette

Nothing about bulletproof coffee measures up to the Meal Template guidelines for Whole30 eating: http://whole9life.com/book/ISWF-Meal-Planning-Template.pdf

We want every meal to include protein, fat, and veggies. Caffeine and fat just are not good enough to make bulletproof coffee a meal.

I consider bulletproof coffee a less than ideal snack because it makes hunger go away, but does not provide substantial nutrition. That said, back when I was experimenting with intermittent fasting, I added coconut oil to herbal tea to make bulletproof Wild Sweet Orange tea and drank it mid-morning when I was not eating until 12 or 1. I liked it and it made going for 16-18 hours without food easy. Note: I was not happy with my experiment with IF. I gained weight and my sleep quality degraded, so I started eating breakfast again.
