  1. BlockInlay Stay on target.

    Anyone ever try this method of intermittent fasting to burn off some fat? I threw on a ton of weight over the holidays that I'm none to pleased about. It sure was fun packing it on though. Figured I'll give this a shot to see what happens. Not buying the fancy coffee or additives so I'm taking the common man route with:

    12oz freshly brewed coffee, Pleasant Morning Buzz from whole foods
    2 tablespoons (yeah) of Grass-fed kellygold unsalted butter
    1 tablespoon unrefined organic coconut oil (work up to 2 tablespoons if my guts take 1 with no trouble)

    I also add a splash of vanilla extract and a dash of cinnamon.

    Whip it all up in a blender for 20-30 seconds and you get a hyper-rich frothy drink that is palatable, though I can't call it delicious or even yummy. It's just SO rich I think it scares me. The stronger the coffee, the more enjoyable the flavor, IMHO. Some folks report taking coffee with lots of fat extends the effects of the caffeine, but I've been a +1 pot a day coffee fiend for years so I don't expect to notice anything different as far as an upper effect. My wife thinks I'm insane. I've always had excellent cholesterol and triglyceride numbers, but I'll probably get checked after a month or two of doing this.

    The result after a few days: drink this in the morning and I don't feel hungry for at least 6 hours. When I finally do eat, I get full considerably faster than normal (my diet is all lean protein and vegetables and beans, nothing else). Zero energy dip, even if I workout in the AM. Interesting.

    I haven't been doing this long enough yet to see any visible or body comp changes yet but I'm expecting good things to start happening.
