Bulletproof Coffee for Weight loss?

bulletproof coffee for weight loss

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of “Bulletproof coffee”? Black coffee blended together with a knob of unsalted butter and a tablespoon of coconut oil. This concoction is known to give you an abundant amount of energy and fast weight loss……however I will not know, because after 1 sip, I could not deal!

I found the consistency very oily and unpleasant to drink. I do recommend trying it out and see if it works for you. There are a lot of people including celebrities, namely Khloe Kardashian, who love it and it works for them.

So I decided to substitute the butter & coconut oil with fresh pouring cream instead. I find that my coffee is not that oily and well my mind can comprehend coffee with cream instead of coffee with butter and oil……at the end of the day, it’s the same thing. It pulls me through the day and I have little to no cravings.

HOWEVER you need to make sure you use POURING cream and not whipping cream. Whipping cream makes the coffee taste incredibly sour….. you would use whipping cream on scones, strawberries etc.

To create a layer of foam and add that extra touch to your morning fix, you will need a milk frother. I use the one below and it’s perfect!

Get it from Amazon for $11.23 (delivery to SA)

So how many cups per day can you have? I would say maximum 2.
Who should be having this coffee? Anyone wanting to lose weight and are on the Keto, Banting, Low Carb or Atkins Diet. Basically, anyone on a diet with low carbs and remember NO MILK while you on these diets!

Giving up milk was the hardest thing I had to do, however it was replaced with cream. Milk contains sugars and this adds to your carb count. If you choose milk then NO cream and if you choose cream then NO milk! Just keep in mind that it’s the cream that makes you feel fuller and limits your cravings.

Another NO! NO! and NO! to sugar of course. My go-to sweeteners are Canderel Green and Erythritol.

 If you are not an Amazon addict like myself then you can also purchase it from Faithful to Nature (Online SA health store) or any health store. I find that the product range in South Africa is quite limited hence I order mostly from Amazon, there are many products eligible for shipping to South Africa.



In a nutshell, you need to do what works for your body. We are all built differently and our bodies function differently. Enjoy experimenting through your weight loss journey, it’s the only way to know what works and what doesn’t for you.
