Bulletproof Coffee, also known as Bullet Coffee & Butter Coffee, has become popular energy drink for many Tim Noakes & the Banting diet followers.
Bulletproof coffee is mainly about adding butter to your coffee which not only gives you more energy, but also reduces your food cravings (and consequently your weight) & improves your metabolism.
For those who are skeptical about converting their precious cup of java into bullet coffee by dropping a fat dollop of butter in, do not worry, the perils of saturated fat have been put to bed.
In fact new findings as those published in the Harvard/Annals of Internal Medicine say that there is “No link found between saturated fat and heart disease”.
This is not to be confused with the awful trans-fats (found in margarine, snacks, fast foods, etc) which raises your LDL cholesterol (bad) and lowers your HDL cholesterol which is the good one.
Furthermore, Tim Noakes contends that saturated fats (found in butter, lard, animal fat etc) are not only good for you, but can help you lose weight as fat consumption suppresses your cravings & hunger and provides you with plenty of energy.
I can hear you saying that coffee naturally gives you a buzz & makes you feel better, but the problem with just relying on the coffee pick-up is that you will crash shortly afterwards.
However, bulletproof coffee (with the butter in it) will give you an enormous boost & allow to feel energised for longer periods and promote weight loss at the same time.
