There's a sad trend lately in the ketogenic community that still promotes fat phobia. Mostly in the form of warning against "BPC" which is essentially fat in the coffee. Nobody is really specific about it though and just rails against fatty coffee in general. I really appreciate this episode of What The Fat and @ryanplowery for specifying that there's a difference between 1000 cal coffee and just putting a little bit of fat in your coffee. Most people are likely putting just a little bit of fat in their coffee-that's what I do-I can honestly say I've never had a 1000 cal coffee and I don't know who all these people who are supposedly doing that, but I really appreciate Dr. Lowery putting it in context because I'm sick of people telling people not to drink fatty coffee. It's perfectly fine to put fat in your coffee and can definitely be beneficial-does it need to be 1000 cal of fat in your coffee? Absolutely not! That is excessive, but I think most reasonable, rational people understand that. #whatthefat#keto#ketocoffee#fattycoffee#bpc#fatphobia#ketogenic#ketodiet#lchf#lowcarb#highfat#ketogenicdiet#podcast#ketopodcast#ketogeniccom#eatmorefat#eatlesscarbs#coffee
Decided to keep motivated with a #throwbackthursday this one goes back to the start of my journey 11 months ago! I didn’t know what keto was when I jumped in.. I just knew I had to try! And well I love bacon so how could I go wrong! One month in and the pounds just started falling off. People told me I was wrong, and everyone became a dr all of a sudden but I ignored them because I’m doing this for me not them. It was and still is a battle but I will not give up! P.s I also the veggies! All the veggies 😂💯🥦🥒🥑🍆 <- I recently found out what an eggplant stood for these days! Omg I’m getting old! I had to throw it in there because 🤪
Let’s talk healthy fats! I used to stay away from things like avocado, nuts, & nut butters because they were too high in calories. When I first started researching diets that help manage PCOS naturally, one of the biggest things that came up for most women with “thin PCOS” is that we need to eat more healthy fats! Even those that don’t have have “thin PCOS” can benefit from eating more healthy fats. There’s a saying that goes “you need to eat fat to burn fat”.
I’ve come to love and look forward to my nut butters everyday. Sometimes I eat organic crunchy @eatnuttzo straight out of the jar or sometimes I make my own nut butters. It’s pretty simple to make them - get some nuts (preferably organic - I get mine from @thrivemkt ), throw them in a food processor and add a dash of avocado oil to make it easier to blend. I like to add a Himalayan salt to mine but that’s totally optional! I like making my own sometimes since I can control exactly what goes in it and how it tastes. Here’s to eating more healthy fats! 🥑🥥 🥜🌰#dailysmilebykristin#healthyfats
Fat is not something to be avoided. It is necessary for energy, cell formation, hormone regulation, protein use, absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K), protection of body organs, and increased satiety. •
