Coffee alone can give your metabolism a boost and help increase your energy levels, burn more fat, and neutralize cell-damaging free radicals, thanks to its wealth of antioxidants.
But there are ways you can get even more out of your morning beverage and increase its fat-burning properties. This is the one thing you should add to your coffee to shrink your waistline.
Diets that are high in fat and low in carbohydrates have been proven incredibly effective for many people. And with the focus on eliminating sugar and increasing fats that can fill you up and help you burn more fat, there’s one ingredient that seems strange to add to coffee, but can actually help keep you on track to lose weight.
Instead of spreading butter on toast, save a few slivers and add them to your cup of coffee. This fat-burning beverage, known as Bulletproof Coffee, became popular after it was discovered that a slew of Silicon Valley executives rely on it to get them out the door in the morning — with more energy and fat-burning potential.
The benefits associated with Bulletproof coffee are lofty, according to Fast Company: “Among Bulletproof coffee’s listed benefits: It triggers weight loss by way of ketosis, a metabolic state triggered by a lack of carbs that kicks fat-burning into overdrive; it kills pesky cravings; and it boosts cognitive function, mainlining a shining dose of mental clarity into your foggy morning skull.”
But one of the more intriguing reasons to add butter to your coffee is that it instantly provides an abundance of calories for energy, without increasing your sugar intake from foods with carbs.
