Keto 101 – Do I need to drink Bullet Proof coffee on Keto?
Bullet Proof Coffee
Do I need to drink bullet proof coffee on Keto? It’s a question that many people ask. It’s definitely been a talking point over the last few years and I remember seeing ‘viral’ videos about random people (not Keto) putting butter in their coffee. I was intrigued and gave it a go when I started Keto. It wasn’t bad but I wasn’t sold on it (and am not still). For me personally it always seemed like a waste of calories and calories I did not need. I would much rather eat some food because I’m a foodie. However I can see it’s use, especially for people who eat more for functionality and really just eat because it’s just something you have to do. I personally like to savour every meal and every bite of food, everything is an adventure.
What’s the point?
Bullet proof coffee provides much needed energy to those who are fat adapted. This is especially good before you hit the gym for an intense workout and I guess that’s also why Keto Connect, Jason Wittrock and Goodybeats all drink it. They all work out, they can use that energy as they are fat adapted. They are also all fit unlike me, who is still trying to lose fat. It makes sense for this reason as well and I forgot to mention this in the video. A lot of people are also confused about drinking bullet proof coffee while doing intermittent fasting. I covered this information in my What is intermittent fasting? video. So what’s the final take away? Asses your lifestyle and whether it makes sense for you to add bullet proof coffee into the mix.

Just wanted to say your recipes are WONDERFUL. Makes this lifestyle much more approachable. I am trying to NOT go near NAAN or killer chocolate cake but they look AWESOME !!!!
I am newby to Keto, started Jan 2018 with lots of fiber ( veggie based ) and no animal products and about two months in, and lots of you tube research , embraced this way of eating. I am older and have done LC very successfully before. I would say I am doing CLEAN KETO without counting. I am finding it very challenging to live without fruit on Keto.
I love food, to me it is ART in life. Your presentations are beautiful, that is part of the JOY of eating.
ANYWAY, hello and thank you from California. Always look forward to see what lovely recipes you are making…
Sorry people are being RUDE about your music.
can you make nutritional info for this coffee ? I’m using nescafe + 1tsb butter + 1tbsp coconut oil + water, since i’m using an app to calculate my calories and trying to stay in the required macronutrient intake, the app is showing different inputs for the same product.
Ex, Bulletproof coffee – 10cals, Bulletproof coffee – 1500 cals (I’m adding the same serving size) or how to calculate it manually ?
You are adding something wrong. You will have to scan the items you using and add them to the app. That’s the best way to do it. Just input the butter and coconut oil info. Just off the top of my head it’s about 250 calories I think.
