Why Bulletproof coffee?
The concept of bulletproof is to make everything you eat or drink to be an improvement to your overall health. While you could have coffee with sugar and cream and perhaps the caffeine would wake you up a little and the sugar is going to make you feel awake for a little while, however… shortly thereafter your high blood sugar will crash in a couple of hours… requiring you to repeat this cycle throughout the day.
But, what if you could improve your favorite mug of coffee to deliver improved energy and health benefits?
Bulletproof coffee allows you to push your metabolism into fat-burning ketosis and get sustainable energy. This energy is provided by healthy fats from butter from grass-fed cows and MCT Oil which can be quickly turned into ketones to fuel your brain.
What Does Bulletproof Coffee Do?
Before we jump deeper into the ingredients of the recipe for bulletproof coffee, let’s dive into why people drink it. If you’re anything like myself, you might be wondering why the average person would want to 1) put their coffee in a blender and 2) blend together coffee and butter. I don’t use butter on my toast so why the hell would I want to add it to my morning joe? However, like many of the odd name entrees on a menu, it actually tastes much better than you would believe!
Bulletproof coffee is primarily designed to:
- – Replace your breakfast meal in the morning
- – Curb or greatly reduce your hunger and keep your appetite in check for hours
- – Promote mental clarity and focus
- – Dramatically increase your energy levels
- – Support your hormones
- – Boost your fat burning
- – Turn your daily coffee into a smooth, creamy, caffeinated super beverage!
Does Bulletproof coffee break my fast?
In a word – no.
While technically the idea of fasting describes is not to consume calories during the fasting period. Since your body is not overwhelmed with the digestion process all day, it has the time to perform repair processes (called autophagy) that make you healthier.
With Bulletproof coffee, you only consume fat (no protein or carbs) during your fast, thus, you won’t interrupt the autophagy process. This allows you to stay in the fat-burning state of ketosis.
Just like ketosis, fasting works by keeping insulin levels low enough to keep your body in a fat-burning state. Fats found in butter and coconut oil don’t cause insulin levels to rise.
