Dietary Effects Of Using Just Bulletproof Coffee
Just started drinking bulletproof coffee (I am on day 4) and am loving it. The blend I am drinking is from Erewhon and their blend is, "made with ghee, Bulletproof coffee beans and MCT oil (a concentrated version of the fat found in palm and coconut oils)"
A few questions (please excuse my ignorance as I haven't done too much research yet):
1. Is taking a multi-vitamin (I take Mega Men by GNC) counterproductive when it comes to IF? I take the multi-vitamins in the morning prior to drinking the coffee. Does taking the vitamins constitute ending the fast?
2. Although the coffee makes me feel great, I feel "bloated". I have that bloated feeling like I have gained weight (or the feeling when you eat something greasy) and I can't shake it off. Prior to drinking the coffee, if I did feel bloated after a series of bad dietary decisions, I could work off the feeling after a few days.
Thoughts on why this may be?
3. Are there any dietary benefits from a fat loss perspective to just drinking the coffee in the morning and doing the IF if I don't change the rest of my diet? I realize tough to answer without knowing exactly what I'm eating but my breakfast used to consist of a protein shake, a starbucks coffee with non-fat milk and splenda and a protein shake. These would generally get me all the way into lunch.
Now the plan is to drink the coffee and do the IF but am concerned about the bloated feeling I am having.
Thank you so much in advance for any advice you may have.
