Need high performance coffee, oils and supplements to power your life?  Are you looking for more energy in the morning or wanting to lose weight? Try the Miracle Iced Coffee, also known as Bulletproof Coffee.

I saw this claim in a magazine this morning, “Drink this in the morning to lose 20 lbs in 2 weeks” and I’m thinking – say what?!?!  So what do you think … could this coffee actually work?

My daughters been drinking bulletproof coffee for months now … she adds all sorts of goodies to the mix and just raves about it.  And she’s definitely not drinking it for weight loss either, but for how it makes her feel – which is energetic !!

So check it – for starters this miracle iced coffee has been around for a few years. Introduced as Bulletproof Coffee, it was designed by Dave Asprey, with the claim  to “supercharge your brain function and create effortless fat loss with no cravings”, which totally explains why it’s been the latest crave.

Did you ever wonder if it really works? Well let’s give it a try – here’s the recipe.

MIRACLE ICED COFFEE – BULLETPROOF COFFEE

8-12oz brewed coffee, preferably organic

1 tbs grass-fed butter or ghee

1 tsp-1 tbs coconut oil or MCT oil

Optional natural flavorings, such as stevia, vanilla extract, unsweetened cocoa and cinnamon

1 cup ice cubes

In blender, blitz all ingredients until a layer of froth forms at the top. Add ice cubes, blitz until smooth.  Ghee blends better because it remains liquid even when chilled.

TIP: To avoid digestive upset when using MCT oil, start with just 1 teaspoon and gradually work up to 1 tablespoon.  And are you in the mood for a hot drink instead? Just skip the step with the ice.

So what’s in the claim “fat burning spikes”.

“As you sleep each night your body burns through all of its blood sugar. Virtually any breakfast will trigger production of more blood sugar. But not this new coffee. Its calories are all from fat thus providing no raw materials to make blood sugar, and forcing your body to burn fat for fuel. It jumpstarts your body into fat burning mode. Your metabolism shifts in a way so that the dietary fat and body fat burn more readily.

So the types of fat used in this drink are also key – one is grass fed butter is rich in CLA, a compound proven to activate fat burning enzymes and rev up weight loss in women. The drink also contains coconut oil or MCT oil, both are rich in medium-chain triglycerides that digest in an unusual way, significantly increasing metabolism. According to research, just one serving of MCT’s actually keeps metabolism elevated for up to 24 hours. And … increased metabolism increases energy too.

Another bonus, researchers have found that foods rich in fat, slash hunger hormones as they spike your “stop-eating hormones”. The effect is so potent , fat-enhanced coffee will keep you satiated four hours.”

So let’s give it a go – bottoms up !!
