A few years ago I conducted a n=1 experiment with Bulletproof coffee.
Excerpt from that article:
Bulletproof coffee is a mix of toxin-free coffee, grass-fed, unsalted, organic butter and MCT Oil. Together they sound terrible and seem to be an excuse for a few extra pounds in the summer. The intended outcome of this cocktail is two-fold: 1. Stimulate brain activity & Increase concentration through the morning. 2. Train your body to burn more fat in the earliest part of the day. I did not do this for aesthetics but rather the additional concentration.
I don’t pretend to understand either the neuroscience nor physiology behind this concept, thus am entering the test on faith.
