So when I started my keto journey I kept hearing about this thing called Bulletproof Coffee, I like my coffee but had no idea what bulletproof coffee was. I started to research to see what all the hype was and to find out was it for me.
So what is Bulletproof Coffee? Simply Bulletproof coffee is a high-calorie coffee drink intended to replace breakfast. It consists of coffee, grass-fed unsalted butter, and MCT oil or Coconut oil mixed in well.
Sounds kinda strange, are there any benefits?
Fat Loss. Plain and simple, the consumption of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) has been shown to lead to greater losses in adipose tissue (fat tissue), in both animals and humans. If you’re looking for an easy, in-depth approach for the ketogenic diet, consider following The Keto Academy!
Eating Fat? Do I even need to explain this one? Eating fat has been shown to lead to greater amounts of energy, more efficient energy usage, and more effective weight loss.
More Energy. Studies have shown that the rapid rate of oxidation in MCFAs (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) leads to an increase in energy expenditure. Primarily, MCFAs are converted into ketones (our best friends), are absorbed differently in the body compared to regular oils, and give us more overall energy.
Heart Attacks? The myth that saturated fat increases the chance of Coronary Heart Disease has been debunked over and over. Recent studies show that saturated fats can actually have a positive effect on your overall heart health.
How to make it
- 1 cups coffee
- 1 tablespoons grass fed unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoons organic coconut oil (or MCT oil)
- 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream (Optional)
- Optional (I use a little Sugar Free creamer)
Make your coffee and add the goodies, simple
Keep in mind, I make this about 3 times a week, it’s a Meal Replacement not to drink along with a meal and how does it taste, well it’s really not bad I love coffee so I enjoy it, it’s a little heavier than my regular coffee. I don’t feel hungry after but I am bad about eating breakfast so this is good. So I suggest giving it a try, if your starting keto it’s a good way to get the good healthy fats to start the day & it’s brain food to.
