    What is the deal with bulletproof coffee and what is it suppose to do?

    I read through the original topic on it long ago and i see topics about pop up up every now and then but im still confused as to why people are putting butter their coffee.

    Personally, I prefer coffee with cream I can't actually imagine putting butter in coffee! Does it actually taste good, or is it sort of gross??

    Unsalted butter tastes about the same as a good cream in coffee. A little coconut oil and a pinch of cinnamon add a nice touch.

    But I don't think its a dietary wonder tool.

    Butter is made from churning cream so the similarity in taste isn't surprising.

    I put 1-2t coconut oil in mine. I love it! I've used ghee, too. Not butter. I also add coconut milk (So Delicious; not canned).

    Lubes you up for the day as well.

    I thought it was going to be disgusting. I was wrong. However, you have to be OK with the oiliness.

    I still don't get understand what's so wrong about eating if you are hungry.. why make yourself miserable? If you're hungry, eat.

    I am not hungry in the morning. This gives me the feeling that I've given my brain at least a little fuel. I've never been a breakfast eater, but I would start to binge around Noon. For some reason, the addition of fat first thing in the AM helps keep that to a minimum.

    I think it's a quick way to increase fat intake from dairy without worrying about some of the compounds in milk or cream.

    I tried it this morning, and it actually is delicious. But then, I like a dark roast of oily beans in the first place, so the oil slick on top was a plus in my book. It doesn't really change the taste of the coffee very much, just the "mouthfeel" a bit.

    I like coconut oil in green tea, but I'm not sure about putting it in coffee.

    We have been doing a mix of coffee/roasted cacao (Crio Bru?)... yeah, french pressed, then blended with grass-fed unsalted butter and some MCT oil.

    It tastes rich and creamy, and the additional fat helps with not having cravings. Not having cravings is a glorious plus in my life. It also delivers good, healthy fats that I might not otherwise get in my daily diet.

    Makes me happy. Is there a better reason than that?
