SKIP BREAKFAST AND DRINK SOME BUTTER
If you haven't heard, there is a weight-loss trend circulating the globe called BulletProof Coffee. If you haven't heard about this the jist is, you put grass-fed butter in your coffee and blend it up.
I decided to give this odd drink a try and the following is my real-life experience. (I'm not a doctor & I only tried this once.)
Eh! It tastes like you added butter to your coffee. It's a little heavy, but not terrible. I can see how this would be very filling and curb your appetite.
I didn't finish the entire cup. After the first few sips I started thinking about what I was drinking and got a little nauseous.
I would never take this up as a daily routine. The idea of using this recipe as a weight-loss tool seems very strange to me. I've even seen people mention "not needing to eat until 2pm" as positive. Doesn't seem healthy. That's me though.
So what does the internet think about Bullet Proof Coffee?
Dr. Andrew Weil seems to think all is well with adding butter to your coffee.
My friend and colleague, Jeffrey Gladd, M.D., has been experimenting with coffee made according to Asprey's recipe and reports good results. "It keeps hunger at bay and has enhanced my mental clarity and sharpness 20 to 25 percent," he says. Jeff believes that a morning dose of almost pure fat may help stimulate the body's fat-burning potential, leading to easier weight loss. He advises using organic coffee and butter from grass-fed cows for optimal results.
According to AuthorityNutrition.com, there are 3 solid reasons not use BulletProof Coffee as a weight loss tool.

Of course, there are many opinions on the internet as to the benefits or lack thereof in regards to BulletProof Coffee as a weight loss tool. My opinion, if I want some organic, grass-fed butter in my diet I won't be skipping breakfast to get it.
