What is Bulletproof Coffee? Bulletproof coffee is an upgrade for your regular cup of Joe. Healthy fats are blended and frothed into richly brewed coffee, resulting in a cup of coffee satisfying enough to double as a morning meal. A cup of Bulletproof Coffee is about 97% fat and made from three basic ingredients:

  • Grass-Fed Butter
  • MCT Oil (Medium Chain Triglyceride) or Coconut Oil
  • Organic Coffee Beans

Why Drink Bulletproof Coffee? This new-and-improved version leaves you full, focused and energized for hours, crash-free – guaranteed. Low carbers have many reasons besides weight loss for drinking Bulletproof Coffee. Health benefits of Bulletproof Coffee include:

  • Helps you stay in ketosis
  • Accelerates fat loss
  • Promotes muscle gain
  • Boosts brain power
  • Increases mental clarity
  • Bumps up energy levels

How To Make Perfect Bulletproof Coffee Bulletproof Coffee is popular for a reason. This high fat low carb coffee is rich, frothy and tastes awesome. Here’s a simple version of how to make basic Bulletproof Coffee. Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp unsalted grass-fed butter (like Kerrygold)
  • 1-2 tbsp of MCT oil or coconut oil
  • 2 cups hot freshly brewed organic coffee
  • add-in spices, flavors or sweetener like Splenda (optional)

Instructions Brew coffee. This can be espresso, drip, french press, etc. Preheat blender. Pour hot water into your blender while your coffee is brewing. Blend and froth. Empty the hot water from the (now preheated) blender. Add coffee, butter and MCT or coconut oil. Blend until there is a thick layer of foam on top like a latte. Yes, you can use a hand held blender. Add extras: cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate, flavored sugar-free syrups or sweetener.

6 Big Bulletproof Mistakes

The recipe for Bulletproof Coffee is carefully designed. However, some Bulletproof Coffee recipe modifications will lower it’s positive effects. Don’t make these Bulletproof Coffee mistakes:

  1. Not all coffee is created equal. The wrong coffee (those containing mycotoxins) will zap your energy, leaving you lethargic and irritable. Choose organic coffee to avoid chemicals. Visit LowCarbeDiem.com c 2014
  2. Only use grass-fed butter like Kerrygold. Butter from grain-fed animals has a different fat composition. It doesn’t blend as well, doesn’t taste as good, and lacks fat soluble vitamins (which is one of the reasons this coffee is ‘bulletproof’). Don’t use low-fat or butter substitutes!
  3. Butter alone does NOT make your coffee Bulletproof. The MCT oil in your Bulletproof Coffee promotes high energy, fat loss and increases brain function. It also makes the coffee have a better feel in your mouth.
  4. Don’t use Bulletproof Coffee as a meal replacement. Bulletproof Coffee is very filling, so this will be tempting. A few times a week is acceptable, but replacing a meal means you’ll be missing out on vital nutrients and protein.
  5. Blend, blend, blend… or it won’t taste the same. Stirring won’t emulsify your Bulletproof Coffee. To get that rich, creamy texture you MUST use a blender.
  6. If you must add a sweetener, use xylitol, erythritol or stevia. Use caution when adding sugar-free flavored syrups. The extra carbs add up quickly and may act like sugar for some low carbers.

What Is Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting? Bulletproof Coffee Fasting is like intermittent fasting, except you are consuming Bulletproof Coffee recipes in the morning. What makes Bulletproof Fasting so much better?

  • Healthy fats from grass-fed butter and MCT oil provide a stable current of energy, sustaining you through the entire day.
  • The MCT oil also increases ketosis, boosting your metabolic rate by up to 12%.
  • MCT found in coconut oil has been shown to lead to greater losses of fat tissue.
  • Coffee raises cell energy while inhibiting muscle building for a brief period, . This causes the muscles to ‘spring back,’ building even more muscle as soon as you eat.
  • Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting extends your life, improves brain function, and strengthens your immune system.

Step-by-Step Bulletproof Fasting Plan The goal of intermittent fasting with Bulletproof Coffee recipes is to improve and/or sustain mental performance by adding more nutritional benefits than plain intermittent fasting.

  1. Step 1: Eat dinner by 8 pm. No snacking after dinner! Go to sleep whenever you want – that’s your business.
  2. Step 2: Drink Bulletproof Coffee. Drink as much Bulletproof Coffee as you like in the morning. You may drink another cup before 2:00 pm if you are hungry, but NO COFFEE after 2:00 PM!
  3. Step 3: Work out. This is not necessary to gain muscle and lose fat, but it helps. Try high intensity weight training. Shorter and harder is better than longer exercise. You will need to sleep more if you exercise.
  4. Step 4: Do not eat until 2:00 pm. This means you’ve only consumed Bulletproof Coffee for the past 18 hours. If 18 hours is too long, begin with a shorter, 10-12 hour fast and increase from there.
  5. Step 5: It’s 2:00 pm – Eat! Eat low carb meals or snacks during the next 6 hours (until 8:00 pm). If you’re hungry, eat!
