My Facebook page is filled with posts from my friends talking about putting butter into your coffee. Here is a link to an article that is an example:
The latest trend in coffee may boost your energy and help you lose weight. Or maybe you’ll just throw up.
Go ahead, put some butter in your joe.
Well, not just any butter, and not just any coffee. The butter has to be unsalted and grass-fed, and the coffee beans have to be low-toxin – not the ones you find at the supermarket or Starbucks.
This trend is supposed to give you a little extra fat in your diet, which is really what many of us DO need to inch out the carbs in our diet. The problem is, butter? Why butter?
For hundreds of years, we have been doing this. We have been putting “butter” in our coffee. It’s called CREAM. You DO know what butter is made of, right?
You wan’t a “creamy” latte? How about this radical idea? PUT CREAM IN YOUR COFFEE!
Bulletproof Coffee is just a food trend. It’s not a magic thing that will help you lose weight. It’s a fad. If you need a bit of fat added to your diet, add some cream to your coffee. Steer clear of the fad.
