Is Bulletproof Coffee Good For Weight Loss?

This Photo Shows Why You Might Want to Rethink Your Bulletproof Coffee

You've probably seen all the fuss over Bulletproof Coffee: coffee mixed with grass-fed butter or ghee and coconut oil or MCT oil. It's supposed to boost energy and productivity, keep you satiated, and help with weight loss. But is this keto-friendly coffee drink really all it's cracked up to be?

As nutrition expert Amanda Meixner wrote in an Instagram post, one cup of Bulletproof Coffee made with two tablespoons of grass-fed butter and one tablespoon of coconut oil is about 345 calories. That's as much as an entire's breakfast's worth of calories if you opt for two hard-boiled eggs, a piece of Ezekiel toast, 1/4 of an avocado, half a red pepper, two and a half cups of sautéed spinach, and a cup of black coffee.

"While Bulletproof Coffee is a fine choice to have in your nutrition routine, you definitely can't count that concoction as calorie-free," she wrote in her caption. She went on to explain that if you are replacing a high-calorie, highly processed breakfast (such as sugary cereal or a store-bought muffin) with bulletproof coffee, it may help you lose weight. But if you prefer real food for the same amount of calories, you're better off sticking to the meal on the right and drinking your coffee black.
