If you are a Crossfitter and havent heard of Bulletproof Coffee, you may be living under the box, not in it! Its been all the craze and heres why.   In simple form, Bulletproof Coffee is coffee blended with grassfed butter and MCT/Coconut Oil. The thought of putting butter in coffee may not sound all that appealing, but don't knock it until you try it! The benefits alone may entice you to give it a shot. Dave Asprey, the inventor of Bulletproof Coffee says it will "supercharge your brain function and create effortless fat loss with no cravings." Heres the breakdown!   The grass-fed butter supplies a ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids thats way healthier than a butter that comes from a conventionally raised cow. The MCTs are a form of healthy fat that requires less energy to be digested. Together you get a creamy hot drink that provides you with increased mental and physical energy and focus while burning the fat you intake rather than storing it. For those early exercisers who dont put anything in their body except a quick cup of joe before a workout, this could be a game changer. By adding fat to your morning routine, your body will metabolize it faster, turning it into good energy while keeping you full. The increased energy will carry you through those grueling workouts without feeling gassed and youll be burning more fat. If you dont work out in the morning, you can still enjoy a bulletproof coffee as a nice jump start to your day that will leave you feeling satisfied while curbing those mid-morning cravings.   There are definitely some haters of Bulletproof Coffee due to the nature of adding saturated fat to your morning routine. If you dont typically eat saturated fat, adding a tablespoon to your diet 4-5 times a week may not kill you. You also shouldnt use this as a meal replacer; however youll probably want to keep an eye on how much saturated fat youre getting elsewhere. Are there better options out there...maybe, but this one seems to have more benefits than not for the average healthy, crossfitter who just needs a bit more fuel to get through their WOD.   To read more about the research and specific branded products, check out www.bulletproof.com.
