Coffee: How to REALLY make it bullet-proof

The only way to TRULY make your coffee bullet-proof is to drink it out of a Kevlar mug! Yeah, every once in a while the fitness industry brings out another corker. Bullet proof coffee is basically adding a tonne of butter to a black coffee.

The reason why?

I still have no idea. There is Zero science behind it. It tastes disgusting (yes I did try it!) and has been universally criticised by every Big Name in nutrition there is. Yet thousands of people are still throwing Kerry Gold into their coffee. The problem is that the term “Bullet Proof Coffee” sounds fucking amazing.


Why drink boring, regular coffee when it could stop a freaking bullet?


Now I am sure that you aren’t doing this, but maybe you know somebody who does? Do them a favour, and stop them. It’s for their own good! Why can’t people just leave coffee alone, it’s absolutely amazing! A fantastic pre-workout that will:

  • improve strength and endurance
  •  Helps with fat-loss
  •  And can improve your mood

In the above link, I discuss all of the myriad benefits that black coffee has to offer. And at 2 calories per serving (without milk or sugar) it is perfect for those on a calorie controlled diet. Even if there were verifiable benefits to adding butter (or coconut oil) to it, the increased calories (441 according to this fantastic article by Authority Nutrition) would negate them immediately.

As I’ve said again and again, people make fat-loss way too complicated by searching for the “magic bullet” that can solve all of their problems.

  • Track your calories
  • Get yourself into an energy deficit
  • Exercise 3-4 times per week
  • Stay consistent

Don’t get distracted by anything else, and if you need help I’m always just one phone call away (just fill out the form below) or you can ask me a question in the comments


Hope this helps
