I’ve been a busy guy in the past couple of weeks since my new book, “The Cruise Control Diet,” dropped. The book, which went to the top of both the Diet and Nutrition categories on Amazon, details my spin on intermittent fasting, where you select an 8-hour eating window, and you fast for the remaining 16 hours. I’ve never seen anything more effective for losing belly fat fast and transforming health, but there’s a catch to traditional intermittent fasting — you’re hungry! That’s what makes my Cruise Control Fasting plan different and BETTER…I show you how to “cheat” the fast with healthy fats, so that you never feel hungry.

A staple of my Cruise Control Fasting plan is, of course, my Cruise Control Coffee! It’s one of the Burn Zone Breakfast Beverages you can enjoy during your 16-hour fast, and it’ll keep you satiated for hours until it’s time to have your first meal. All of the ingredients work quickly and effectively to curb your hunger, all while you enjoy a delicious cup of hot, creamy, frothy coffee. So without further ado, here’s the recipe.

Cruise Control Coffee

*In this recipe you can choose between MCT or coconut oil, and between grass-fed butter and ghee.

Servings: 1

  • 1 cup (8 to 12 ounces) coffee
  • 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons MCT oil or coconut oil
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee
  • 1 tablespoon Cruise Control–friendly sweetener *I love Swerve!

*Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy.

In the recipe above that I mention that you should use a Cruise Control–friendly sweetener, and one of my absolute favorites is Swerve! My friends at Swerve, who make a variety of sweeteners to compliment any recipe (as well as cake and cookie mixes), like to say it’s the ultimate sugar replacement. Why? Because Swerve has zero-calories, it’s non-glycemic, and it measures cup-for-cup like regular sugar. Made from ingredients found in select fruits and starchy root vegetables, it’s sweet, safe and natural — and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives or flavors. It’s even safe for those living with diabetes, since it has no effect on blood glucose or insulin levels.

Swerve is a blend of three ingredients. Erythritol is the most prominent ingredient, and is naturally made by fermenting glucose. Prebiotic fibers called oligosaccharides are then added to the mix, along with some natural flavor from citrus to provide just the right amount of sweetness. Unlike other natural sweeteners like stevia, there is no bitter aftertaste, which is a huge benefit to me. It just tastes more like sugar than the others, plain and simple! It’s also the only sugar replacement of its kind that browns and caramelizes, just like sugar does — so all of your favorite recipes will turn out just the way you like them. Me and my boys have a serious sweet tooth — so besides using Swerve in my Cruise Control beverages, we use it all the time to make delicious, sugar-free treats.

So I hope you give my Cruise Control Coffee recipe a try – it’s incredibly effective for curbing your appetite during those dicey “bumper zones” in the morning and at night when you’re fasting. And if you like your beverages sweet, I highly recommend using Swerve as your sugar replacement.
