One of the many incredible allures of adding grass-fed butter and MCT oil to your morning coffee: it can help you lose weight.
How does this work? Well essentially, grass-fed butter has a totally different nutritional profile than conventional (grain-fed) butter, because cows’ bodies are designed to process grass – not grains. So in essence, they pass on all those awesome nutrients that are present in rapidly growing green grass to you in the most bioavailable form. When we fuel our bodies with this incredibly high quality fat, we feel satiated. We experience an unbelievable sustained curb of appetite when our bodies finally get the fuel they truly need, and food cravings become nearly non-existent. Drink a cup of Butter Coffee in the morning, and chances are you won’t feel hungry until afternoon!
The truth is, the cultural shift toward “low-fat” everything hasn’t done us any favors – in fact as a whole we’ve gotten fatter and sicker. Most of our bodies are actually starving for that good fat that fuels our brain, regulates our hormones, and improves our metabolism. If you’re afraid of fat – don’t be! Butter in your coffee won’t make you gain weight, but here are some pointers to help ensure that Butter Coffee will result in weight loss.
