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.
