Why I Mix Oil and Butter In My Coffee


Oil and Butter mixed with my morning coffee?

Why in the world would I do this crazy thing?

For the past 4 months, my main ‘go to’ breakfast has been BulletProof coffee

The main component of BC is medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT).

These are some benefits of MCT’s

1- more rapidly absorbed and burned as fuel

2- not stored as fat deposits as much as other fats

3- enhances metabolism to burn more calories

4- appetite suppression

5- prevention of atherosclerosis

6- has a beneficial hypoglycemic effect (lower blood sugar)

7- immune enhancement

8- proven to treat a number of diseases with abnormal fat metabolism such as inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, and pancreatitis.

Butter and coconut oil have MCT oil and you can buy pure MCT in stores. I found mine at Whole Foods, but nutrition stores have it as well.

1 cup of coffee, 2 TBS of grass-fed butter, 2 TBS of MCT oil.
You can also add Truvia, cocoa powder, or vanilla extract to enhance flavor. Blend well and enjoy your daily dose of energy!

  1. I do this every morning as well, but i do use coconut oil instead of MCT oil, often adding cocoa powder and sweetener. Love it, and it is quite satiating!

  2. I do this as well most mornings! I sometimes use just coconut oil, or a tbls of each of coconut oil and MCT oil. Too much MCT oil tends to give me a belly ache. And of course gotta have Kerry Gold butter in there!! Keeps me satisfied until lunch time.
