Can adding butter and MCT Oil to coffee help you lose weight? Not when you don’t significantly change any other part of your diet…

One of our favorite personal trainers out there is a man known as Ben Carpenter, who is also a PES sponsored athlete.

We love his YouTube channel because it’s simple and direct, and Ben actually cites his sources in the description!

Ben on BulletProof Coffee

Nothing made us laugh more than this transcription:

Hi, Ben Carpenter here. I’m going to briefly explain how you can make your BulletProof coffee even better for fat loss…

Dave Asprey recommends using 1-2 tablespoons of MCT oil along with at least two tablespoons of butter.

He says that he personally prefers around 80 grams of butter.

I want to share my favorite way of improving his BulletProof recipe…

Warning: NSFW language used at the very end!

So let’s run down the list quick:

You’ve got your coffee, you’ve got your MCT oil, and you’ve got your butter.

Now, here’s my secret to improving the formula…

Keep the butter away from the coffee.

If you want to lose weight, don’t put butter in your coffee, drink it as is.

Save the five hundred calories you were about to drink. In theory, five hundred calories per day equates to about a pound of weight loss per week.

So, for the best fat loss… stay away from BulletProof coffee!

Why is BulletProof Coffee a bad idea?

There’s no doubt, MCT oil and quality butter / ghee are better alternatives than other, less healthy forms of fat.

But research has shown that a major problem in general with our society’s collective weight gain is that we’ve simply added more calories over the past decade.[1] It doesn’t necessarily matter what those calories are from, in terms of weight gain.

Low-fat, low-carb? Doesn’t matter. What matters is the the protein stays high[6,9,10], you eat your vegetables, and the calories stay in line for your goals.[2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10] Everything else is just gimmickry.

So, in the end, telling overweight people to add more calories – and dense ones at that – to their already terrible diets… is only making things worse.
