This is my first post.
Title says says it all.
I'm getting most of it in the cafe.. I feel great, i've lost a bunch of weight. My butter is confirmed grass fed from a local farmer here in Brazil..
But I wonder if I am consuming too much?
that's over a stick-a-day! 1,600 odd calories.
You doing the RFLP?
Can't tell you if it's LOCO if you don't give any other information!
SUCCESS: A lot of little things done well
this charts suggests I am WAY OUTSIDE worldwide norms
i am not doing the RWLP
in fact i was not trying to lose weight, although i'm looking great and i guess i probably needed to lose some..
i am slowly sourcing quality meat and other supplies but it is not always easy here.
Yesterday I started adding coconut oil to the cafe as well. Awesome. Seems to be loosening up my gut in good ways.
I have yet to find a good source of MCT here...
I've been doing the cafe for 2 months. I've completely lost the wheat and grains (EASY to be honest, something about not going to bed with stomach pain every night is rather appealing...)
What more would be good to know about my situation?
That chart a joke? a week!
How you consuming 8 bars a week of butter?
Age, weight, sex..............
I'm not a troll. Just new to this and trying to learn.
That chart is what google gave me when I asked about worldwide butter consumption per capita which seemed like a potentially reasonable thing to compare my consumption against..
According that chart I appear to be a butter consuming champion and I wonder if it is wise to be in the vanguard for that metric.
I already mentioned where here is (Brazil).
I am Male, 40 Years old 150 Pounds (was 185 when i started a few months ago)..
Why do you think that chart is a joke? (It may well be, I wouldn't know.)
I'm consuming 3-4 cafe's per day.. I put approx a fistfull of butter in each time.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Doesn't say what the time scales is, but I'm guessing it's a month or year, not a week.
Just a guest. I do around 2 sticks a week and I'm a heavy butter users compared to the average person. That's 0.5kg a week!
in order to read this chart it is helpful to look at the top column
in this case the top column are years (1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, etc)
so it is trivially obvious that the data is for years
So those countries are eating that much per each year, not a week. That was my point.
for some reason i thought you wrote "Doesn't say what the time scales is, but I'm guessing"
yet there is no need to guess what the time scale is on the chart.
my question remains:
**am i being foolish consuming so much grass fed butter?**
i FEEL and LOOK great. but maybe there is something else i need to consider?
I suppose I should get my bloodwork done for the first time in my life...
thanks again for taking the time to educate me
lol, at this thread.
technically this is bulletproof, assuming the other 20-50% of your cals are also bp.
It's not all about the cals...but...
2kg = 1800-2000 cals a day in butter
If 70-80% of your cals are fat/butter, then your total bp cals are 2500 /day
For 185 pounds, this is no problem.
For 150 pounds, you will likely find weight loss stall. Which is probably not a bad thing.
I'd love to know your LDL fractions before and after 6 months of doing this (seriously).
edit: also, butter has to be one of the cheapest products per cal, so good on the budget

If you're force feeding yourself then yes you're eating too much. If that's what you need to feel satisfied, what's wrong with it?
I use about 85g of butter in my BPC in the morning (plus MCT) and another 85g in my blended cauliflower for lunch. Then I use even more in my dinner. I almost go through a 250g block per day so I wouldn't worry too much.
i am not force feeding at all
but i must admit i am quite fond of the cafe
unfortunately i did not measure the before numbers
when i started the bulletproof i assumed it would it would turn out to be BS
i never expected to be doing it long term
i'm pretty much consume the cafe, beef, and the some veggies (carrots, brocolli,) all with plenty o butter
and some cheese here and there
i make a point of getting some carbs once a week (white rice/ sweet potatoes) and the odd bit of fruit
i was formerly a frito-lay/pepperidge farm/wonkas poster boy
i would add some supplements but the quality is suspect here in brazil..
i will probably get the "LDL" numbers in a few weeks.. any other tests is should request?
still haven't told us about whatelse you're diet is made up of.
