I have been telling patients for the last couple of years how I use butter in my coffee, instead of milk. Today’s post, is my review on this new type of health coffee that is taking off in the paleo diet and CrossFit scene.
The website link in the tweet takes you to the page on Dave’s blog, where he shares how he developed his special coffee.
Dave shares research on how a large amount of commercial coffee might have undesirable levels of mycotoxins. The main reason I was willing to try melting butter in my coffee, was to help add fat into my diet.
The improved memory and brain function is what I was gunning for, so that week I got some butter and started the journey. Following the Bulletproof diet infographic guide you can see there are bad fats and healthy fats. Since then, I have added more safe carbohydrates, like white rice and sweet potato into my diet to gain my optimal weight around 88kg. Dave likes his gadgets and because of him I started using an emWave2 from HeartMath for testing and training my heart rate variability.
As a special bonus I have arranged a discount with a UK wholesale supplier of Upgraded™ coffee, and who stocks nearly every other one of his products. If you live in the UK you can buy all of Dave’s Bulletproof products directly from his Upgraded™ Self website, here and have them posted to your UK address, but you may need to to pay customs duty. If you treat your daily caffeine jolt as though it were a sacred ritual, you’re not alone.
According to a Zagat survey earlier this year, 87% of Americans consume at least one cup of coffee a day. While caffeine in moderate doses can increase mental alertness, fight off headaches, and even help prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers, worshiping your neighborhood barista can have some serious negative side effects. Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive stimulant, targeting the central nervous system and heightening your brain’s feeling of alertness. The problem is, most of us don't just consume caffeine in coffee, but in chocolate and soda as well.
For many of us, it may be hard to imagine how to get through our day without our daily cup of coffee.
While four cups of coffee may seem high, keep in mind most coffee shops serve beverages larger than 8 oz.

The most recent annual National Coffee Association of USA’s National Coffee Drinking Trends showed the popularity of specialty coffees and espresso-based drinks such as cappuccinos and lattes is on the rise, jumping from 13% last year to 18%. Although many of us enjoy a large caffeine jolt to jumpstart the morning, A landmark 2004 study by researchers at Harvard Medical School on the best caffeinating strategies revealed small, frequent doses of caffeine—about 2 oz. Caffeine reaches its peak level in the blood stream within 30 to 60 minutes of consumption and can remain elevated for three to five hours before you begin to crash. If you’re concerned about your daily intake, you may want to consider downloading caffeine tracking apps to help you determine the optimal time for a caffeine jolt.

How did I end up mixing grassfed butter, like Kerrygold butter, into my morning cup(s) of coffee? I’ll explain my personal story of how I got started, what I learnt going down this rabbit hole, and the kind of results I have seen since drinking a high fat paleo coffee, nearly every morning for the last two years.
She share info on how to optimise your body, mainly through exercise and functional exercise. After enjoying the energy boost from butter tea, when he got back home from his travels, he tested butter in coffee. Use a digital kitchen scale to measure 35 grams of freshly ground coffee beans per 500 ml of water (2 rounded tablespoons of ground coffee per 6 oz. A high speed food and beverage blender is really recommended, like a Blendtec, Vitamix or I use a Magimix. I had been reading how children with epilepsy, on a high fat diet (ketogenic diet) had lower risk of seizures, and how Alzheimer patients could benefit from coconut oil.
Since I was a teenager, I have been on a low fat diet, just because I thought it was bad for you. Seeing a yellow layer of melted butter fat floating on top of my coffee was not visually appealing at all. It was when I lowered my protein intake, and upped my fat intake that I could easily go for 12-24 hours without feeling hungry or needing to eat.
I feel after listening from episode 1 of his many Bulletproof Radio podcasts, watching him on Creative Live TV for 3 days, buying his Upgraded™ Self products and trying them on myself that what Dave says, has merit.
Like, should you have gluten on The Carb Nite® Solution or a Tim Ferriss Four Hour Body cheat day?
This all falls into my health philosophy of getting your mind, body and gut right, to achieve better results in life.

According to the FDA, 400 mg per day of caffeine (that’s about four cups of coffee) is a safe amount of caffeine for healthy adults. Caffeine is now being added to gum and other previously caffeine-free treats such as jelly beans, meaning it’s not difficult to hit your daily maximum even without making a double Starbucks run. Optimizing caffeine’s stimulant effects all day long may mean swapping your ginormous coffee-addict mug for a teacup size cup several times a day. Caffeine Zone 2 (free for iOS), developed by the ACS Lab at Penn State University, allows users to note the amount of caffeine consumed and tracks how long the stimulant will remain elevated in your bloodstream. Jawbone’s Up Coffee (iOS) or Caffeine Tracker (for Android) provide similar tracking services.
From there, he refined the process further by: adding a refined coconut oil called, MCT oil or medium chain triglyceride oil, into the coffee. The French Press method which is a boiled coffee method & is the preferred brewing technique.
I then mixed in normal virgin coconut oil to get an even thicker oil slick on top of my coffee. Saying that, I was feeling the heaviest I had ever been and not because I had been doing weights at gym.
There are many medical doctors now promoting the high fat low carb lifestyle for longevity and reduction in lifestyle diseases like metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
He then went investigating about what are the coffee farming and roasting methods that make the best coffee beans. This is when he was looking at the different coffee processing methods, for example, natural pulped & wet processed. Other ways to make it are using an Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker with a stainless steel filter, stove top espresso or pourover coffee like a Hario V60. Mold can grow on them in a warehouse or on a container ship, on their way to their destination country to be roasted.
