Bulletproof Coffee has been gaining a lot of coverage and popularity of late. But there are also many people who ask questions, because the way it’s cooked, the ingredients, it’s very far from your conventional breakfast. Even if you’re trying out some very healthy options, like this vegan zucchini bread.
Let’s check and see if Bulletproof coffee is really good for you.
Isn’t eating whole foods for breakfast a healthier option?
Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. It can give you a kick of energy for the whole day and get your metabolism going. So, having a hearty breakfast will indeed keep you full for longer and speed up your metabolism.
But Bulletproof coffee is hearty enough. It will keep you full and it will keep you energized. Of course, you don’t have to drink it everyday. Variety is really the spice of life, so alternating between whole foods and BP coffee is a grand idea!
Doesn’t Bulletproof coffee contain too much fat for my good?
Well, it’s chock full of butter, so there’s plenty of fats. But the fact is, there are fats and then there are fats. Meaning, not all fats are bad for you. Actually, some essential fat oils are absolutely vital for your health and the best time to consume them is morning, because it takes time for your system to metabolize them.
It may not be a good idea to have such a fatty drink before you go to bed, when your metabolism slows down significantly. But in the morning it may actually help you speed up your metabolism and burn energy more effectively.
Some other sources of essential fatty acids is ocean fish and flaxseed oil.
What if I’m fasting? Is BP coffee okay for me?
Absolutely, as long as you have only BF coffee for breakfast. It doesn’t have much protein or carbs, so you’re safe, and you will not break your fast.
I think drinking my calories isn’t much fun.
It depends. If you’re drinking a sugar-laden soda with practically zero other nutritions except for sugar and quick-processed carbs, it is not a lot of fun indeed. You’re simply heaping calories. The sugar will give you a bit of an energy boost, but it will dissipate very fast, leaving you craving for another fix.
Bulletproof coffee metabolizes much slower, so the fullness and energy effect is prolonged and you will easily hold up way into your day without wanting a snack.
What else is Bulletproof coffee good for?
We agree, packing all this fat from the butter, BF coffee has to offer some good benefits. And, aside from everything mentioned above, it does more. It supports your hormones. We all know how our mood, our stress levels and our ability to function and work is affected by our hormonal state.
The good kind of cholesterol in Bulletproof coffee helps to balance out your hormones so that you stay focused, can maintain your good mood and stress resistance levels. Bulletproof coffee helps you to concentrate and manage your attention spans better and keep calm in possible stressful situations.
And well, we haven’t yet mentioned that it simply tastes delicious. Starting your day with a tasty treat will make you wake up faster, feel better and do more.
I hope we have answered some of your questions about BF coffee! Let us know what you think!
