Super trendy and made with coffee beans from Tibet, bulletproof coffee claims to be the answer to weight loss.

Bulletproof coffee began as a beverage and has evolved into food products and cafes.

What is bulletproof coffee? Basically, it's a mixture of special low-mold coffee beans, grass-fed butter, and oil made from medium chain triglycerides (MCT).

Yes, butter and oil in your morning coffee.

These additions boost the calorie content of your cup of coffee to more than 400!

Bulletproof coffee boasts satiety (obviously, from the high fat content), improved cognition (from the trademarked "Brain Octane" oil, aka MCT oil), and enhanced energy.

Who wouldn't want to "build a better brain in 14 days" as the website touts?

Dietitian Leslie Bonci, MPH, RDN, states "foods provide the chew we don't get in our brew," raising the point that chewing our calories is significantly more satisfying than drinking them.

Instead, opt for healthier fats - avocado, nuts, nut butters, and olive oil - which provide satiety with their "chew factor."
