If you are a low-carb zealot and familiar with the concept of Ketogenic diet, then you must have heard about Keto Coffee in your Internet travels. I myself am a big devotee of healthy eating; had heard about Keto coffee from many friends and colleagues. But until a few days back, I had no idea what exactly was it meant for. So in case there are others like me, who hear about this coffee a lot but don’t know what it does, here’s my understanding of it.
Keto coffee is the new revolution in the world of low-carb beverages. It is a ‘high on fat, optimal on protein and low on carbohydrate’ coffee that is built to enable the body to burn more fat than carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates are a great source of energy generation in our bodies. They convert into glucose and regulate functioning of the brain. What actually happens is that when our body notices a shortage of carbohydrates in the system, the liver starts to break the fat into Ketone bodies and fatty acids. These Ketone bodies replace glucose in the process of energy generation. As a result, you start losing weight as the fat is being sucked up by the liver, brain and other body organs.
Keto Coffee has been invented on the premise of combining saturated fats and caffeine. Saturated fats are healthy and keep you satiated for a longer length of time. Caffeine is a traditional energy booster and an arguable mood lifter. And above all, this beverage is low on carbs that makes it way too awesome and healthy.
Different people have different methods of preparing Keto coffee. Some include egg in the recipe; others prefer a completely vegetarian list of ingredients. So here is the most widely popular recipe of Keto coffee that I am sure you will relish.

How does having more Fat lead to weight loss?
Ketogenic diet is all about focusing on the fats and ignoring carbohydrates. The concept has gained momentum in the recent years as people have started to understand the difference between saturated and unsaturated fats; i.e. healthy and unhealthy fats respectively.
Basically, ingredients like butter that were immensely demonized for their ‘weight-increasing’ quality have finally been cleared of the misconception. According to Ketoship, butter contains Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) that has been testified to reduce Body Fat Mass in obese and over-weight people.
Especially in Ketogenic diet, you intake more fat so you could curb your appetite and stay satiated for longer. Plus, the diet aims to burn the fat-storehouses in your body. This leads to elimination of extra fat in your system. And since carbs are already supplied in lower quantities, good health becomes inevitable.
And finally, coffee in itself is a Thermogenic, meaning it lends a hand in boosting metabolism and increasing weight-loss activites. This ultimately means that a combination of butter and coffee has the potential to promote healthy eating and fat-burning.
Should you try the Keto Coffee Diet?
I’d suggest some professional help when you are trying to adopt such an immense dietary change that is (let’s face it) way outside of evolutionary norms. Consult a Dietician to know whether it will suit your physical dynamics or not. Keto coffee may work wonders for some and turn out to be a complete failure for others!
