Primed with butter, MCT or coconut oil, bulletproof coffee – a keto favorite – can be a satisfying, energizing, fat-supplying breakfast in itself. But don’t treat it as a side beverage to accompany a meal of bacon and eggs. Because if you’re trying to lose weight on keto, calories still count.
“Bulletproof coffee is fine, but it’s not free,” Devine says. Laden with calories, the beverage is really more like a meal replacement, she says. Although people may believe they’re fasting in the morning by having bulletproof coffee alone, she says, that isn’t the case. If you’re taking in 500 calories and upward from the added fat, that isn’t really fasting.
The same goes for commercial products like keto desserts. “I have my keto ice cream every night,” is something Devine often hears from keto fans. However, “Look at the box and it’s 300 calories per serving,” she notes. “If you’re consuming 300 extra calories every single night after your meal, that’s why you’re not losing weight. No one should be doing that all the time.”
Instead, think of desserts as treats to have sparingly for special occasions, like birthdays or holidays, she advises.
