This Is Everything You Need To Know About FATwater

August 31, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

Have you heard of FATwater yet? It’s the latest health trend that sweeping the nation. FATwater was designed by Dave Asprey, the maker behind Bulletproof Coffee, which has people adding butter and oil to their morning cup of coffee. FATwater is exactly what it sounds like in that fat is mixed in with water. FATwater isn’t a weight loss drink, but it’s an alternative to drinks like coconut water and energy drinks.

FATwater contains purified water and two grams of Bulletproof XCT Oil, which is “medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) derived from coconut oil.” Each 20-calorie bottle costs $3.95 and comes in a variety of flavors. Asprey told Time, “The water looks kind of iridescent, pearlescent. It has these tiny, invisible droplets of fat that your body really, really likes.”

According to Asprey, FATwater is more hydrating than regular water because the fat allows your cells to absorb more water. “Drink a glass of water, and some of it will absorb and some of it won’t. But when your body sees that fat, it says, ‘Oh, come on in, this is pure energy.’ It brings the water in with the fat,” he said.

A bottle of FATwater is labeled stating XCT oil’s follow “a special metabolic pathway to burn fat instead of storing it, giving your body the clean, high quality fuel it needs—and nothing else.” It’s also important to note that the statement on the label hasn’t been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

How legit is FATwater? Regina Cruz, M.D., who is an integrative cardiologist and specializes in how fats are metabolized said, “One of the main benefits of saturated fats is that they’re filling, so I don’t see any advantage to adding them to water as that won’t increase the satiety effect.” She also said that water surrounded by fat will actually be harder to absorb in the body.

Asprey says the company is “working on specific studies for these exact formulations.”

Hmm…sounds a little fishy to me.
