Butter, in my coffee? Yes, you read that right, butter in your coffee may be just what your body needs to lose weight. But how can that be, since butter is fat and fat isn’t good for losing weight? For some, fat, such as butter, olive oil and other “healthy” oils, is exactly what your body needs to lose weight and keep it off for good!
A high fat, low carbohydrate diet, also known as the Keto Diet, is worth exploring. This may not be the diet for everyone, but for many people, this is the answer to losing weight and improving your overall health. At Nutritionally Yours, we can provide a food allergy / intolerance testing and get the answers your need for your daily diet. So, I ask again, should you drink butter coffee?
You may be wondering, how is a high fat diet good for me when I want to lose weight? Won’t foods high in fat make me produce more fat and gain more weight? The key to eating high fat is keeping your carbs very low. If you eat a diet high in fats and high carbohydrates, you may being causing more harm than good.
The ultimate goal on the Keto Diet is to put your body into a state of Ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process the body begins to help us recover when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are formed from the breakdown of fats in the liver. The objective of a properly controlled keto diet is to drive your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but deprivation of carbohydrates.
The best way to find out if this way of eating is going to work for you, is by performing the lgG IgE food allergy test because you really do not want to eat foods that can be causing your body harm, inflammation and / or weight gain. I run the Igg and IgE food panel together to give delayed and immediate food reaction results.
The next time someone asks you, ‘‘would you like butter in your coffee,“ chances are you should say,‘‘YES!!“
