It’s partly the aroma, flavor, and let’s face it – the caffeine that we desperately crave.
Now, Most people add things into their coffee that makes it bad for you like:
However, Coffee Creamers need to be singled out.
They are popular and very dangerous.
Would the Nestle Corporation really lead us astray?
Do I really need to answer that?
The ingredients listed:
- Hydrogenated vegetable oils – contain unhealthy trans fats and have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
- Sodium caseinate, a milk derivative, may cause an allergic reaction in some people who are lactose intolerant or have a milk allergy.
- Artificial flavors and annatto color may have negative effects on health due to their artificial nature and potential to contain harmful chlorine and other chemicals.
- Additionally, consuming large amounts of corn syrup solids and dipotassium phosphate will contribute to an unhealthy diet and lead to weight gain and other related health problems.
There is a much better way to drink coffee that is both healthy and will accelerate fat loss.
It consists of:
MCT Oil – derived from coconut
Unsalted butter or Ghee (optional)
Personally, I do not add Ghee as I find it too heavy.
Using a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) implanted, I measured my results
- Before coffee – baseline glucose 111
- 15 min after drinking – glucose 104
- 30 min after drinking – glucose 107
- 45 min after drinking – glucose 115
- 60 min after drinking – glucose 103
Bulletproof coffee raises my blood sugar minimally and released remarkably little insulin!
What does all this mean?
It means that coffee can be used as a powerful fat booster.
In addition, adding fat to coffee (MCT Oil + Butter) also has the additional benefit of decreasing hunger and reportedly increasing brain function according to the NIH.
*Note: Frankly, I just add 1-tbsp of MCT Oil to my coffee and not butter due to taste and digestive reasons.
- If you drink more than one cup of coffee per day, only Add MCT Oil and/or butter to the first cup of coffee.
- If 1-tbsp of MCT Oil is too difficult on your GI tract, start at 1/2-tbsp for two weeks, then increase.
- MCT Oil doesn’t work by magic. For best results, you need to eat a good diet with limited carbs/sugars.
I teach clients to never go above 40mg/dl and I personally try to never go up more than 20mg/dl.
Doing so will cause a large insulin release, and we all know what that means…
- Higher Body Fat
- More inflammation of joints and blood vessels
- More future carb cravings
Always work on keeping your insulin levels low!
