When I think of strategies to lose weight, I don't think about adding lots of butter to my daily routine.  In fact, I think the opposite.

But there's a new diet trend where people are trying to lose weight by putting butter in their coffee.

It's a spinoff of the Paleo Diet where you try to eat like a caveman to lose weight.  Obviously cavemen didn't have coffee or butter but the idea of putting animal fats and proteins into your coffee works with their principles.

If you want to try it, mix at least two-thirds of a stick of butter into your coffee.  You can also add coconut-palm oil for flavor.

Apparently, by drinking butter coffee, you get an extra energy boost, it curbs your appetite and it helps you lose weight.  But by all reports it tastes horrible. I would tell you that I am going to try it but then I'd be a liar.
