Thanks,

I've been checking out the snacks thread and hope to pick up some ideas. That coffee looks good too. I've got one on order.

I understand why fats are better than carbs but after reading through this forum it seems the consensus is that fat is good in and of itself. Am I understanding this correctly? If so, why?

When you're cutting carbs sharply and getting enough fat in your meals, we usually say you can eat to satiety and then stop. Don't gorge, but do eat until you aren't hungry. Ham will be lower fat than regular pork bacon, but still - if you like bacon, go with the real thing.

Getting enough fluids helps too . . . and it seems for me, that getting the fats & fluids up enough is harder than getting carbs low enough! So I start out with a quart of whatever beverage - usually iced green tea - and make sure my breakfast is high fat - like this morning, leftover chuck roast/green bean stew with extra butter melted into it. I have no compunctions about scooping up two or three tablespoons of butter and slopping it into whatever I'm eating!

And a great many people drink bulletproof coffee with their breakfast, which is a stellar way to get a headstart on fats of a morning.

When we eliminate carbs, we are eliminating a source of fuel for energy. We need a new source, and fats is that source, a healthy source of fuel for energy that doesn't raise our blood sugar.

There is often a reaction known as 'carb flu' or 'Atkins' flu' that ensues when people embark on a low-carb way-of-eating. My take on this is that it's a response to not getting enough fuel for energy - and another factor in this is reduced sodium intake as well. So in the process of transitioning from a high-carb diet to low-carb, fats need to be increased to keep energy levels up, and be careful to get enough sodium too, and keep electrolytes in balance.

I wondered that too, Morton . . . clue us in! I thought you just dumped in cream/coconut oil/dairy butter with your big cuppa.

I just clicked on the recipe from your link. "Bulletproof" is actually a brand name and they sell coffee and other things. I guess any coffee will do. The kind they sell seems a little pricey:

Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Coffee - 12 oz.

I guess so . . . I linked to the thread from this forum, but jwags linked to this guy. Who knew it's a burgeoning industry now?! Good grief!

Yeah, when people on the forum talk about bulletproof coffee they are usually talking about regular coffee with added coconut oil, butter and HWC as you like to increase fats. I started drinking my coffee in my 24 oz. mug with a 1/4 cup of HWC and liked that but when I heard about people adding coconut oil and butter it sounded weird but I tried it and found that I really like it. I wouldn't start the day without it if I can help it.
