Along with Keto, Intermittent Fasting (IF) was one of the diets of choice for those serious about getting health benefits and keeping their weight down during 2018.
The most popular forms of IF are fasting for 16 hours and having an eating window of eight hours, that’s 16:8 – so you start eating at midday and stop at 8pm. But others also do 10:14 where you start eating at 10am and stop at midday.
The only trouble is the small issue of hanger. Those drawn out foodless mornings…throw in a deadline and you have a recipe for an outburst or ten.

So, while fat has been an instrument in weight loss diets for some time, with keto diets emphasising fat and brands like Bulletproof offering butter-laden coffee as an essential, companies like the pioneering new Ancient & Brave are offering an option to stop hunger pangs during your fasting window with fat that doesn’t spike blood sugar and tastes amazing.
stop hunger pangs during your fasting window with fat
Created by former Hollywood stunt double turned naturopath Annelie Whitfield who did stunts for the likes of Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman, A&B features delicious drinks of organic high-powered cacao and coffee blends mixed with other superfoods such as baobab and cinnamon but no sweeteners, only a little Himalayan sea salt.
You blend a few scoops with some organic butter and another element, A&B’s medium chain triglyceride oil – proven to help burn fat around the middle – and drink. It’s ridiculously tasty and it somehow stops hunger pangs. Whitfield attributes this effect to the fat, which is satiating, without spiking blood sugar, which she claims doesn’t break your fast.
