The Latte-Like Drink That Helps You Lose Weight AND Gives You The Focus CEOs and Athletes Rely On
What if I told you that there is a better way to drink coffee? Well, there is! Athletes, CEOs, and now everyday people drink Bulletproof Coffee to improve their energy, to get lean, and to get more things done in the day.
What is Bulletproof Coffee?
Bulletproof coffee is coffee enhanced by butter. It’s coffee, blended with butter from grass-fed cows, and MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides) to be exact. Yes, you read that right, you need to blend this coffee in a blender. Don’t worry though. The process will be worth it. There are numerous benefits to starting your day with this creamy latte-like cup of joe.
Dave Asprey is the one that brought coffee with butter to the mainstream. His inspiration came from Tibetan mountains where people would drink yak butter tea to keep themselves alert and warm in icy conditions. Dave Asprey built a very successful company, Bulletproof 360, Inc, that promotes a healthy lifestyle. He sells quality products that make it easier than ever to create the drink yourself.
Get A Powerful Energy Boost Without That Annoying Crash Later
Whether you’re in school or work in an office, you know that in the mid-morning people start reaching for snacks to refill their energy levels. Some of these snacks are not very healthy and only create more brain fog in the long run. Bulletproof coffee helps you maintain energy levels thanks to mild ketosis and hunger suppression. That means less junk food in your stomach if you start your day with Bulletproof Coffee. Proponents of the coffee suggest replacing breakfast with this drink for best results.
The Big Benefits of This Drink
Not all of us are biohackers, but we can still take advantage of the many benefits this coffee provides. Here are some of the main ones:
– Sharp and stable focus
– Cuts cravings and leaves you feeling less hungry
– Improved willpower
– Helps you enter mild ketosis to burn the fat you already store in your body
– Getting more out of your workouts, and better endurance
– Improved mood and overall happiness
– And more.
You’ll Love it if You’re Doing Intermittent Fasting
You’ve probably heard about intermittent fasting. It’s a kind of diet where you fast daily, usually for 12 to 16 hours. Bulletproof Coffee is often combined with intermittent fasting because both focus on increasing ketone levels in your blood. The coffee pushes you into mild ketosis and lowers your feeling of hunger.
Coffee Bean Quality Matters
Cheap coffee beans sacrifice on quality. You might be drinking moldy coffee and not even know it. You know the worst part? Moldy coffee will cause brain fog. Yes, that tasty coffee you just bought might contain mycotoxins (mold) that slow down your thinking.
Don’t worry though. There are a few brands that test their coffee for mold and other toxins. If you want the full effect of Bulletproof Coffee, you’ll need to find high-quality coffee. Paying a small premium will be worth it.
The Recipe: Butter, MCT, And No Sugar
Grass-fed, unsalted, and organic is the way to go. This butter will have a higher nutritional value than grain-fed butter. Remember, we’re talking about your brain here. Cheap butter can have unneeded additives and won’t have the needed fatty acids needed to help your brain.
The clear oil used in Bulletproof Coffee is called MCT (medium-chain triglycerides). There are many reputable brands. MCT is a kind of fatty acid that converts to stable energy.
To get the full effect of this drink, you cannot add sugar. Sugar spikes your blood sugar levels and makes it more difficult to burn fat. One of the main reasons to drink this coffee is to enter mild ketosis. Your brain loves ketones. To do that we have to avoid adding sugar and its more friendly cousins like maple syrup, agave, or honey. Sugar gives you a small boost now, but saps your energy later and will make your brain foggier.
Ready to give it a try? Here is the original recipe:
1 Cup of Quality Coffee (preferably from Fresh-ground Organic Arabica Beans)
1-2 Tablespoons of MCT Oil
1-2 Tablespoons of unsalted, creamy, grass-fed butter.
Pour your arabica coffee goodness into the blender. Add the butter and the MCT Oil. Blend for 30 seconds until a layer of foam forms. Careful! It might still be hot. Enjoy!
Now before you start chugging cups of Bulletproof Coffee, remember to start slow. Your body might not be used to processing so much fat at once. We don’t want to have a small disaster in our pants, do we?
Won’t All The Fat Make You Fat?
Not all fats are bad. Fats don’t make your blood sugar go on a roller-coaster ride. Fat makes you feel less hungry and helps you absorb fat-soluble nutrients. Also, when you eat fat, you train your body to burn fat. Your body becomes a fat-burning-machine. There is a lot of research done on the health benefits of fats.
Did you try it? If you tried it, you immediately noticed how smooth the coffee is. We didn’t even add sugar, and the bitterness is almost all gone thanks to the butter. There dozens upon dozens of recipes today. Some recipes add mushrooms for an extra cognitive boost, and others even add gingerbread spice, cinnamon, or pumpkin puree for taste.
Want to Be A Real Biohacker Now?
You don’t need to send your blood to a lab to find out what your ketone levels are. Now you can check your ketones with simple pee strips. You can also check your alkalinity (PH) with pee strips, too, but that’s another topic.
Coffee will only get you so far on your way to a healthy life. It’s a great and powerful tool because it helps you stay motivated with your exercises, diet, and other commitments. Always keep growing and learning new ways to improve your health and happiness, and everything else will fall into place.
