QUIZ: How KetoLogical are you?

Drink Fat Coffee To Dominate Your Mornings

Drinking coffee in the morning (and all day for that matter) is part of our routine and it’s here to stay. And that’s ok because science shows that consuming coffee in moderation is healthy. For example, coffee can help decrease the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease, and some cancers[*]. Wanna know how you can supercharge your coffee and make it even healthier?

Enter fat coffee.

What Is Fat Coffee

Fat coffee (which also goes by butter coffee, bulletproof coffee, or keto coffee) is gaining popularity worldwide because of its health benefits. It’s like coffee reinvented. Think caffeine and the power of MCT oil. Your body can easily and quickly break down MCTs for use as energy and brain food (in the form of ketones)[*], all the while glorious caffeine is working in the background. Sounds pretty amazing, right? Let’s unpack the health benefits so you’re totally convinced to try this concoction (and share it with Grandma).

Health Benefits of Fat Coffee

Supports A Ketogenic Diet

Fat coffee fits perfectly into a ketogenic diet because it contains fats without carbs, which your body turns into ketones for energy and brain food [cue mic drop].

Beneficial for Type 2 Diabetes

According to some studies, a low carb diet may benefit people suffering from type 2 diabetes[*]. A low carb diet may help to:

Reduces Hunger Cravings

Drinking fat coffee can prolong the onset of hunger. If you add oil and butter to your coffee, you will feel less hungry than if you just drank black coffee.

Improves Brain and Heart Health

Coffee beans are packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, and essential nutrients[*]. Various studies show that coffee beans reduces your risk of heart failure and stroke, and improves your memory recall and concentration[*]. But in general, make sure to buy coffee from a reliable source since mold can taint some coffee beans and can wreak havoc on your immune system and mental faculties (not to mention ruin the taste)[*][*][*].

Good Source of Vital Nutrients

Using grass-fed butter to make fat coffee is better than regular butter. That’s because the milk (and subsequent butter) of grass-fed cows contains higher levels of vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K, and healthy fats. These nutrients are good for your eyes, heart, brain, and skin. Apart from this, the milk is loaded with fatty acids such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and butyrate. The CLA is anti-inflammatory and plays a role in reducing weight, while butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid that improves your brain and gut health[*][*]. In contrast, the milk of grain-fed cows is lower in omega-3 fatty acids and other beneficial nutrients[*][*]. Of course, regular butter works fine in a pinch.

Boosts Ketone Production

MCT oil increases brain-enhancing and fat-burning molecules in your body called ketones. Your body uses ketones for fuel instead of using glucose. Burning ketones decreases inflammation and encourages weight loss[*][*]. Also, according to studies, the fat-burning effects of MCT oil increases (i.e., are magnified) when it’s combined with caffeine. That means your body burns more calories from fat easier and faster when they’re consumed alongside caffeine[*][*].

There are four kinds of MCTs: C6, C8, C10, and C12. Some of these MCTs transform into ketones more quickly and effectively than other MCTs. According to studies, C8 (caprylic acid) is the most ketogenic oil[*]. That means that C8 MCT oil increases blood ketone concentration more effectively than just coconut oil.
