The Keto diet is still one of the most popular diets for those looking to shed a few extra pounds, or simply wanting to try out a new nutrition plan. Keto coffee is an excellent addition to have at the start of your day whether you’re just an avocado toast kind of person, or intermittent fasting until midday. Check out this Keto coffee recipe to keep you going throughout the morning.
Nora Tobin, performance enhancement and executive coach, nutrition specialist and CEO of Nora’s Naturals coffee, shares with us her Fat Burning Keto Coffee recipe that enhances fat burning and allows the body to stay in a fasted state.
“Intermittent fasting is the process of shortening the window in which you eat to typically an eight hour period (fasting windows may vary). During the 16 hours of not consuming any food, the body goes into rapid cellular cleanup mode, known as autophagy. This process clears toxins, repairs cells, lowers inflammation and allows the body to burn fat for fuel,” says Nora Tobin.
Fat Burning Keto Coffee Recipe:
- 1 cup coffee
- 1 tbsp. organic grass – fed unsalted butter
- 1 to 3 tsp. coconut oil or MCT oil
- ¼ t sp. vanilla
- Cinnamon, optional
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth, then enjoy this beverage hot or cold!
Nora goes on to say, “By incorporating coffee into the fasting process, the body and brain will feel energized even in the absence of food. By fasting in the morning with coffee and any form of pure fat in the cup (heavy cream, grass-fed butter or coconut oil), the body stays in the fasted state while receiving the calories to feel satiated. Try the Fat Burning Keto Coffee Recipe with a delicious and enhanced morning.
The combination of intermittent fasting, exercise and coffee suppress mTOR. When this is suppressed it triggers muscle building and fat burning, resulting in better results from workouts. Coffee also speeds up metabolism because it has a thermogenic effect on the body. The combination of coffee and fasting will double down on the body’s natural fat burning power.” says Tobin.
