I’m now on week 2 of my diet consisting of Bulletproof coffee , grass-fed beef, vegetables and occasional carbs (about 10% of my DV) and I feel amazing. My daily routine looks something like this:
- Breakfast 8:00am — 350mL Coffee, 1.5 tablespoon grass fed butter, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, blended
- Lunch 12:30pm — Grass-fed beef, Broccoli
- Dinner 1 6:00pm — Sardines and 2 eggs, Bok Choi
- Dinner 2 9:00pm — Grass-fed beef, Broccoli
In his research, he hypothesised that death from heart disease correlated with the amount of fats in our daily intake.This resulted in his Seven Countries Study. In the study, Keys showed correlation between dietary fats and atherosclerosis; this caused revolution against fats in our food — even today. What Keys failed to unveil in his study, however, was that the original data actually consisted of twenty two countries. The final result diminished to seven because the other fifteen did not meet the correlation he expected. He cherry picked his data.. Oh Keys…
A quick google about saturated fats and health will provide links about how they’re not to blame for atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. It’s actually on the contrary according to the data. In societies where fats make up a large portion of their diets like the Maasai tribe, Inuits and Tokelau, where their diets consists of 60-75% fat, they actually have the lowest risk of heart disease.
Good news! I now have peace of mind to allow a higher fat intake that I thought possible before. Of course it’s important to keep carbs on the lower side while on this diet so that the body can burn off the excess fat instead of the carbs. The cherry on top? Grass-fed butter is delicious on everything!
