I popped in on Sethís blog the other day to see what was new (a lot, as usual!), and saw the link to the glucose thread.† I decided to try Platinum calories after reading about the glucose-lowering effect of CO.† Maybe thatís why noseclipped CO did not work for me.† I had changed my SLD calories to single dose, first thing in the morning.† The immediate effect of a rapid glucose drop is not hunger, but it catches up to you.
I started Thursday night, mindful of the timing, and in small doses, Clarinette style.† Iím not interested in food until Iíve been up a few hours, but to reduce the chances of a glucose drop, I had oatmeal shortly after waking, and 60-90 minutes later, espresso with 1 tsp. VCO.† Iím having 2-3 cups a day, total 80-120 calories.† I had a mild headache for 5 days, but itís gone today.† I got a headache early on with EVOO, because I lost interest in caffeine when my AS was good.† So needing only 2 cups is good news.
I also tried VCO coffee first thing, it made me jittery, like drinking percolated coffee.† I didnít get the jitters if I had the platinum calories after breakfast, and at least once a day, I feel the flush of a† thermic effect, and shortly after that, a serotonin hit, and all is peaceful.† Afternoon† VCO coffee makes me very calm, lol.
The oil is slower to float if I stick the measuring spoon in the cup before starting the espresso drip. The added benefit is that I still get to enjoy the crema.
The AS is so far, a short term effect, similar to CFF calories, vs. the longer acting AS with ELOO.† With CFF, I used coffee as one of my CFF flavors, and when I had coffee without the CFF, I still got the AS effect.† Same thing here, I just had a plain decaf coffee and it came with extra AS.†
