Bulletproof Coffee, is it good for you?

January 08, 2015 2 min read

Bulletproof coffee has taken the fitness world by storm as the latest diet trend. Many articles have been written about bulletproof coffee and its positive effects, but this craze hasn’t been around long enough to see the true results. What is bulletproof coffee? Bulletproof coffee is a new trend that involves mixing coffee with coconut oil and butter. By adding coconut oil and butter it is suppose to release the caffeine throughout the day and keep you fuller for longer due to the fat in the butter and oil. To make bulletproof coffee use one cup of hot coffee. Use whatever brand you prefer although since bulletproof coffee has become such a phenomenon, there is now a brand of coffee that is recommended and called what else but bulletproof. Then take 1-2 tablespoons of unsalted butter and add it to the coffee and 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil and add it to the coffee. Place the coffee mixture into your magic bullet or blender and blend on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute until frothy. The first time I tried bulletproof coffee I used earth balance a butter substitute because I am vegan, the mixture was quite delicious considering it is just coffee and oil. As soon as I drank about half a cup I immediately had to use the restroom, this continued for a few hours. I would use the restroom and then we fine for about 30 minutes but then I would have to go again. Coffee is a diuretic but regular coffee didn’t flush me out the way this did, drinking this coffee was like I was going through a detox. The next day I was weary to drink the concoction again because I didn’t want to spend all day in and out of the restroom again. The second day I had a completely different effect. I didn’t have to use the restroom and I felt fuller for longer. The coffee was working as it was supposed to and I wasn’t hungry until after lunch time. Later when chatting with my sister and discussing bulletproof coffee she told me she had done it for three days and ended up throwing up and getting sick. She said she had google’d bulletproof coffee and read other people experienced the same effects. When I first started on my fitness journey I learned that we should be eating 6 mini meals a day. So when I did bulletproof coffee and it took away my appetite for a meal, I wondered if that was good or bad. Food is not a bad thing if you are eating the right foods that fuel your body and the correct quantities as well. In conclusion if this new fad it something that works for you then go ahead and continue to do it, but if you experience any uncomfortable side effects then forget it, just eat healthy and exercise and I bet you will see the same results or better even.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
