Yesterday I mentioned a magic coffee, and I thought I should share a little about it...
After being someones girlfriend for several years + 4 failed attempts at IVF I gained more kg's than I'm comfortable with. On top of that I managed to eat healthy during the day, but when the evening came I always wanted some sort of snack. Soda and chocolate was my biggest sin. In the end, I wasn't very happy with what I saw in the mirror.
When I moved North - When I had my whole "starting over" project, I thought why not start over when it comes to my health and the way I see food at the same time?
So I did just that. I stopped with all the candy and soda. I started to eat more healthy, you know, eating "normal". But it didn't work for me. I was hungry all the time, and the craving for candy and soda never went away. So I did a little research, and decided to try LCHF again (I've tried it once before, but it didn't work because I knew too little about it and I didn't eat enough fat).
It's a decision I haven't regretted.
Since I stopped with carbs and started eating more fat instead I've lost over 1 kg pr week. The craving for candy has disappeared, and I feel full all the time. I drink water, lots and lots of water, or tea or - and here is where the magic coffee comes in.
It's my kickstart of every day. Full of healthy fat, taste sooo good and gives an energy boost that last out the day!
How I make it:
3 dl black (hot) coffee
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
I put everything in a bowl and use a blender to mix it together. This way the texture will be all creamy and delicious!
Coconut oil is very healthy and can help speed weight loss when consumed daily, it also helps improve digestion, increase the absorption of calcium and magnesium, its high lauric acid and MCFA content help boost metabolism, and it supports healthy thyroid function which is a huge plus for me!
I've also thrown away all my expensive lotions, and use coconut oil only on my skin and in my hair
Ok, I probably seem like a total coconut oil crazy! And I can proudly say that, YES I am!
I love that stuff, and that coffee!!!
