Coffee with coconut oil for weight loss
Coconut oil coffee with organic grass fed butter provides an extended energy boost, enhances your focus and satiates your hunger cravings. The caffeine in coffee with coconut oil combines with fats to gradually release its effects over a long duration of time.
David Asprey, the mastermind behind the bulletproof coffee with coconut oil recommends use of coffee brewed with good quality, low toxin beans. You should then combine it with organic unsalted grass fed butter plus MCT coconut oil. If you cannot get MCT coconut oil then just use the best quality you have in your cupboard. MCT is an abbreviation for Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are present naturally in coconut oil. Dr. Cullen says that when a diet incorporates medium chain triglycerides, there is a considerable increase in the number of calories burned. The more calories that are used, the fewer are stored as fat, which helps to shed those extra pounds.
Unsalted organic grass fed butter is a cornerstone of bulletproof coffee because it is high in healthy fats and nutrients not found in regular butter. While many cows today are fed corn feed or soy because they’re cheap, cows that eat good old-fashioned grass are healthier and pass their nutrients on into the butter churned from their milk. Organic grass fed butter has four times more CLA than butter obtained from grain-fed cows. It is also higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K. Therefore, butter from grass-fed cows is a much healthier choice for preparing bulletproof coffee.
Best brain food
Coffee has long been known to boost mental functions. Caffeine blocks adenosine, stimulating chemicals like dopamine and glutamate and allowing them to flow freely — giving your energy a boost and improving brain functioning. Caffeine also increases serotonin that has a major influence on brain. That’s right: a morning cup of coffee can give your mood a great lift.
Many people credit bulletproof coffee with enhanced mental clarity, increased energy levels, and significant weight-loss results. MCT fats from coconut oil boost brain function significantly. Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), the principle type of fat present in coconut oil, have been known to boost cognitive performance. Whereas the basic energy source for the energy-hungry brain is glucose, when insulin resistance and suboptimal metabolism (hypometabolism) takes place in the brain, both the structure of brain and function are compromised. Ketone bodies supply a much needed extra fuel source to supplement glucose that can revitalize metabolic processes within the brain and improve mental functions.
Bulletproof coffee is a great meal replacement option for you in the mornings, You not only lose weight but it gives you a physical and mental energy boost that can help you perform your daily tasks in the best way possible.
