Would You Drink Water Infused with Fat? Apparently It’s Healthy

This oil-infused water is said to burn fat

FATWater is made with coconut oil mixed in water and is said to burn fat.

We thought butter in coffee was a crazy concoction, but could this oil-infused water actually burn fat?

Dave Asprey, inventor of butter-infused Bulletproof Coffee, recently created a new drink, called FATWater, that’s made with droplets of fat extracted from coconut oil.

Asprey explained to the New York Daily News that the oil helps our cells absorb water and provides a temporary energy boost. The body, according to Asprey, does not store the fat the way it does sugar. “The oils enhance thermogenesis, which is a fancy word for ‘fat burning,’” he said. “They get burned as energy and have an appetite-suppression effect. It’s not like we put in sunflower oil or canola.”


FATWater is only available at the Bulletproof Coffee Shop in Santa Monica and a natural foods store in Los Angeles. Asprey plans to expand the oil-infused water nationwide. He is the first person to patent and market oil mixed with water.
