This is where a new drink called FATwater comes in. Combining the words "fat" and "water" sounds rather strange, but the product's creator Dave Asprey claims FATwater entails an innovative approach that will help burn calories instead of adding pounds with every sip.
As explained by New York Daily News, the water contains "teeny droplets of fat extracted from coconut oil." The oil-laden water is more attractive to cells that supposedly absorb the liquid better if it contains small amounts of saturated fat which, by Dave's estimation, amounts to two grams.
Another purported benefit of FATwater is that the fat contained in the coconut oil temporarily boosts energy levels. Dave further explained that the oils play a crucial role in thermogenesis, or the fat-burning process. "They get burned as energy and have an appetite-suppression effect," he said. "It's not like we put in sunflower oil or canola."
This is similar to Dave's Bulletproof coffee diet in which he touted butter-enhanced coffee as an energy boosting drink.
So, will we be hydrating with FATwater anytime soon? Fat chance.
