All the cool kids add butter or MCT oil (medium chain triglyceride) in their coffee and call it BULLETPROOF COFFEE.
Some say adding butter or oil in your coffee helps increase your metabolism and helps burn fat.
The truth is, if your goal is to lose weight, then adding butter or MCT oil to your coffee is not going to help you lose weight.
The only way to lose weight is to be in a calorie deficit. You cannot eat more calories than you are burning and still lose weight, it’s not possible.
One reason one might lose weight drinking bulletproof coffee, is by subbing out a meal for a cup of bulletproof coffee. So instead of eating their typical 500 calorie meal, they are now drinking a 200 calorie coffee. Which puts them in a 250 calorie deficit for the day.
But, let’s be clear here, butter/MCT oil in your coffee has no magical fat loss benefit.
1 cup of coffee = 2 calories
1 cup of bulletproof coffee = 250+ calories?
Maybe they should rename it to Blubber Coffee??
If you want to lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. Adding hundreds of calories to your diet will not help you achieve that goal.
