Okay, the fact that you even wanted to read this post says a lot! Really butter and coffee? If it isn’t already bad enough that you dump 10 sugars and cream in your coffee as is! Well the makers of Bulletproof Coffee beg to differ. Their “magical” mixture of coffee, butter, and MCT oil (otherwise known as medium-chain triglycerides) (MCT) promises to suppress hunger and promote weight loss. The idea was inspired by the Nomads who are said to drink tens of cups of yak butter tea a day as it provides caloric energy for life at extreme altitudes. It is said that this awesome sounding creamy, frothy drink mixture contains healthy fats that are supposed to keep you fuller longer, help you avoid crashes and sugar cravings, provide an energy boost, and improve mental clarity. But what is with the butter? Doesn’t that just make you fatter? Apparently no! It’s the specific type of butter that they are using in their product that is grass-fed and unsalted. Dave Asprey, the brain child for this amazing morning drink says that with 2 tbsp of their butter in your coffee your body will be in fat burning mode all day. The idea mimics that of nuts and avocados, who optimize the body’s cholesterol instead of raise it. So why not give it a try, this may be the only time you can “cheat” and feel good about it.
