Re: Coffee Drinking


2-3 a day typically. Never past 11:00am. Usually take it 1+1, but I'll drink black without a fuss.

Iced cappuccino's in the summer

It's awesome. I normally drink my coffee black, but the bulletproof flavor is pretty good. I've never bought into the "buy our beans at 4x the cost because of mold" stuff, but it is good.

Started with butter and coconut oil, warm and frothy with a nice flavor. Bought MCT Oil, did butter and MCT, flavors a little lacking. Tried MCT, butter and coconut oil and it was just too much fat, on the toilet most of the morning. Tried getting used to the three for a week, fewer toilet trips but left my stomach feeling mean.

As far as energy goes, it's there, bunches and bunches of it, depending on what you're doing. If you're humping lumber, sheeting roofs, doing demo, or any other heavy lifting/fast paced stuff it's not going to be enough to keep you going all that long. You'll burn out (even drinking copious amounts of water), but that's just common sense.

However, on days where the tasks were less labor intensive and less brute force was involved (cedar shaking a house for example), a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of coconut oil blended in like 12oz of coffee, and another 12oz black coffee would usually keep me going strong until 12:30-1:00 (with an 8am start time).

Start small and work your way up, if you aren't used to a lot of dietary fat you can expect to blow it out the other end sooner than you'd like, with much less warning than you'd normally get.

These days I usually drink a half pot of black Peet's Major Dickason's blend. When I'm working with others I tend to have a cup before I leave, fill up a 20oz mug for the commute/getting things set up, and fill up a 32oz thermos for the other two guys so nobody has to go anywhere for morning break. Helps keep the break shorter, everyone gets good coffee, and nobody has an emergency after drinking some of the questionable coffee that gets brewed up around here.

Mrs. Plate talked me into doing the bulletproof thing. I drank it in the morning for a few weeks.

It definitely gave me energy. A lot of it. I got really hungry around 9-10, which is unusual for me.

I can't remember why I quit to tell you the truth.

I'm going to get back on it tomorrow morning.

Re: Coffee Drinking


Do you actually use his coffee, or do you just use your own and add butter?

Re: Coffee Drinking


We use our own coffee, I grind beans each morning. And she got some free range, grass fed, unsalted, organic business from Trader Joes. I'm pretty sure the brand is KerryGold.

Make sure its unsalted butter. The KerryGold was good. Regular salted... not so much.

Re: Coffee Drinking


I feel like his beans are a scam, but once you start using Kerrygold it's hard to go back to other butters. The flavor blows the cheap stuff out of the water.
