    Bulletproof coffee = how to ruin a perfectly good cup of coffee and give yourself the *kitten*

    Well, I was about to be curious enough to try it, since I don't have a good appreciation for good coffee anyway.

    But the followup there - ehhh, maybe not then.

    I tried it, once, at a specialty coffee shop, where they did fancy versions with flavors and nutritional add-ons in addition to the fats. (Can't recall the details, but I think at least some of it was coconut oil.)

    I didn't experience that . . . aftermath.

    It tasted better, and had a nicer mouthfeel, than I'd even remotely expected. I expected it to be yucky, frankly. It didn't make me a convert - still seems like a waste of calories, as a general thing - but it was fun to try.

    No noticeable after-effects at all. It was just peculiar coffee that tasted decent. 🤷‍♀️

    MCT oil, uh, 'effects' are definitely dose dependant. You were lucky!

    Specialty coffee shop - now those words kick in my avoidance due to cheapness. I mean, being thrifty.
    Well, ok, maybe once, but ya that calorie load for just fat. Need to be a day I know absolutely I'm getting a workout in or makeup will happen next day.

    Hi Ann
    Out of interest did you try it in an empty stomach? I find that caffeine and fats done mix well first thing in the morning

    I don't remember, to be frank. It was not first thing in the morning, but I can't remember how long since I'd eaten.

    Context: I was out on a shopping expedition in a nearby town, with friends I don't usually do shopping stuff with (workout buddies from the Y). We wanted something to eat. I remember that we went to the coffee shop while waiting for a particular store to open, and we went to a little bakery that had food for lunch, but I don't remember which order those were in.

    The coffee shop was one that specialized in coffee drinks with coconut oil and such blended in. I'm sure I could've gotten a drink without, but it seemed like a fun experiment. Never occurred to me that it would be a problem.

    Even without a gallbladder, I don't seem to have a problem handling high-fat foods, even as part of meal that I eat after not eating for a few hours. I can't think of a time when I've eaten *just* fat after not eating for a while ('cause yuck!), unless the coffee shop was one. (I've eaten, for example, a pub meal that started with beer-battered onion rings with beer, then more pub-type food after, with no issues, as an example.) My routine diet tends toward fairly low fat, just by eating preference not by trying for it, FWIW - I pay attention to the fat macro in order to be sure I'm getting what I think is enough of it.

    I'm somewhat caffeine reactive in that way, I think, but it wasn't an unusual caffeine amount for me.

    🤷‍♀️
