Eating a diet higher in fat makes you less fat.
This may be the most obvious statement to some. Others may find it as hard to believe as the US Government having it’s citizens best interest in mind.
This statement sounds contrary to conventional wisdom because the word “fat” has been misused for so long. When someone refers to an individual’s “fat,” we’re actually talking about their level of adipose tissue.
One of the quickest ways to build up our fat digesting enzyme profiles, is to consume more fat. This basically teaches the body to use fat as fuel, instead of running off of carbs (sugar) constantly. Many people have consumed carbs so often, for so long, their bodies almost forget how to produce fuel from stored adipose tissue.
I have been hearing about “Bulletproof Coffee” for some time due to the Bulletproof Executive and Fat Burning Man podcasts. Many preach about the laser-like focus that ensues. While I believe high quality fats are like high octane fuel for the brain, I was skeptical that this concoction could be as advantageous as some say.
Boy, was I wrong.

I decided to try the 16oz of high quality, low toxin coffee, 2tp of cocunut oil, paired with 3 tbsp of grass-fed unsalted butter. It tasted way better than expected. I almost felt guilty after my first few sips.
While I do not have any MCT oil, which is recommended by Dave Aprey, the benefits have not been diminished. Within two minutes, a clarity of thought came over my mind. I felt as if music was more clear, my thoughts were entering and exiting my consciousness more recognizably, and I was able to focus completely on the task at hand. Who couldn’t use better focus, a smooth stream of energy, that is healthy and sustainable to help dominate whatever you’re day looks like?
Some may find themselves heading to bathroom immediately after trying this coffee blend. I did not have this reaction. I typically eat high fat and little to no carbs. As Dave Asprey says, “If you’re like most of my friends who try this, your body is so starved for healthy fats that you feel like you can’t get enough. It will take your body a week or two to fully turn on its fat digestion systems when you switch to a high healthy fat breakfast of Bulletproof coffee. ”
Not only is this recipe delicious, it further cements my thoughts on the amazing power of consuming a high-fat, low carbohydrate diet. Take the time to try out the Bulletproof Coffee and you’re likely to embrace high fat diets and view the way it makes you feel as proof that much carbs just aren’t needed, as many fallaciously think.
