First time hearing about this coffee? No worries, let us guide you along with this article.
The most common usage of a Bulletproof Coffee A.K.A BPC, is using it as a meal replacement.
It consists of coffee, grass-fed butter and 1-2 tablespoons of MCT(Medium-chain triglyceride) oil mixed in a blender and was originally created by Dave Asprey, author of The Bulletproof Diet, a bestselling book on biohacking.
How does it work?
There’s a long list of benefits in what BPC can provide you but you can probably google all these so let’s just keep it short.
The MCT (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) are shorter chain triglycerides as compared to the long chain triglycerides that you frequently consume in your daily life, which basically allows your body to break it down faster than you normally would.
This helps your body in many ways such as faster fat burning, helping you to go into ketosis faster and many more benefits, but we’ll get to that in another article later!
The butter used is grass-fed and compared to the butter which everyone frequently consumes (grain-fed), it packs a whole lot more nutrition such as omega-3, Vitamin A. It’s also rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to burn UNWANTED fat!
Many people have been asking ‘Can I drink BPC without doing keto diet’?
Don’t worry, it is absolutely FINE if you do so!
BPC is not only consumed by people who are doing the keto diet, they are also consumed by many around the world purely due to the energy they provide!
Let me bring you through a few short benefits.
- People are afraid of fats, but they shouldn’t be. Not when they are consuming GOOD fats! The fats found in BPC are all GOOD fats, which helps you to feel more full and reduces your appetite even in a normal diet. This is the reason why many have been using BPC to replace their meal in the morning. Just the energy and mental clarity that it gives in the morning when taken is shocking!
- Many are trying to watch their calories intake by starving themselves, but ultimately giving in to munching on snacks and tidbits while they are hungry, which instead caused them to gain MORE WEIGHT. Imagine this, would eating chocolate bars and snacks packed full of sugar, 400-500 calories compared to drinking BPC which has a mere 100-200 calories be more helpful to you in watching weight? Pretty sure you have the answer!
- BPC helps your body to adapt to fat easier. As you consume BPC as a meal replacement, your body will only uses the good fat contents provided by the BPC as its energy source. This also allows your body to get better used to adapting to using fat as its energy source, which helps should you wish to embark on the keto journey.
‘But I’ve heard that fats are bad for you’?
The notion of fats being unhealthy has always been a stigma since decades ago. However, you must be reminded that similar to carbs, there is also differentiation of ‘Good’ and ‘Bad’.
In fact, many have embarked on the journey of Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) or Keto diet and have proved that consuming fats are not only healthier for you, it also helps you to keep your weight in check! These are all facts proven by many around the world!
The best way to figure out if bulletproof coffee works for you is to just try it and be consistent in doing so! Commit to drinking it for a short period of time and feel how it works out for you!
When you try it, take note of how it makes your body feel. Does it increase your energy levels and improve your focus? Or does it bother your stomach and fail to curb your hunger? Either way, it’s helpful when trying something new to track how your body is reacting to it, which can help you decide if it’s something you’d like to stick with long-term.
