If memory serves, rsfletcher does not follow a keto way of eating. He takes in far more carbs than most of us. It seems to work fine.

Smile Fletch = featjers?

I am on about a half dozen archery and bowhunting forums also and every time I see @rsfletcher 's nickname I think does this guy fletch his own arrows too, wonder which arrows and feathers he uses and then I remember this is the diabetes forum and that is probably some form of his real name and not what he does archery wise.

I've tried doing different things with my coffee. I love buttered coffee but sometimes it gives me indigestion. The coconut oil is strange and when I use it, I just put a tiny bit in. I recently tried HWC and that is nice. So, when I do add something, I add the cream. The rest of the time I drink my coffee black.

By the way, I always use a blender for my KETO to make sure it is well blended and frothy.

Smile Wired...

Trying the coffee this morning and using MCT oil, stevia, 2 tbsp of butter, a dollop of coconut milk and heavy whipping cream.
Melt the butter in the hot coffee and stevia, and then add the coconut milk and HWC and than nuke the mixture, helps to smooth it together with a little stirring and the HWC makes it frothy. Mmmnnn...

I'm on average 100 Grams of Carbs a day. I've always been that way. The 2 % milk in my coffee - a tablespoon maybe ...

I limit my carbs but nothing like many LCHF folks who have Type 2 and are trying to break free from their Metaformin. I just stay away from breads, cereals and potatoes mostly... I've tried but unless my pancreas suddenly starts making insulin cutting my diet of carbs to a small number would likely not make much of a difference.

I'm in to archery but I don't make my own arrows. With a name like Fletcher I really should

Good to know! Slingin' arrows is quite therapeutic. As for this Bulletproof Coffee thing I have a new Stanley thermos on my shopping list so I can take mine with me.

I find that bulletproof coffee doesn't need any artificial sweeteners, which is a good thing. During an intermittent fast, I've recently confirmed that sweeteners of all types, including stevia, stimulate my appetite/cravings.

So not only does the fat in the bulletproof coffee makes me less hunger, but it allows me to avoid the sweeteners.

I dig that you don't use the stevia, but I have found that I love Stevia and it makes my coffee, tea and hot chocolate tasty. Stevia is a real blessing for me as it is not an artificial sweetener, but one that occurs naturally in nature.

I don't consciously nor intentionally intermittent fast, I just don't feel hungry for days at a time. For me an actual fast is a spiritual devotion in which I only drink water and may last anywhere from 3 to 40 days. In my ministerial prime I have done two 40 day fasts drinking only water. Just my personal experience.
