Ever since I started the Keto diet, there’s one thing that keeps me completely satiated and it has shocked me. It’s Keto Coffee, and it’s absolutely magical.
Meeting my macros with keto coffee
Before Keto, I was not a coffee drinker. Not for any particular reason, but caffeine didn’t seem to affect me. I’m not the type of person who needs coffee to function, or even drinks it everyday.
Interestingly, when I first began, I never hit my fat macro. Ever. Some people say it’s not important, that it’s the filler to keep you from gorging” but it felt important to me to balance out this diet the proper way.
I found Keto Coffee, and realized it would be a great way to up my macros, and also get some supplements into a simple drink.
Tools and tips for making Keto Coffee
Now, you’re going to think EVERYTHING I’m about to say is crazy, but in my experience, Keto Coffee has been a lifesaver.
The first day I drank it, I had to force myself to eat because I was so full all day from the coffee, that I really didn’t have any serious hunger.
Keto Coffee also made me feel like my coffee was super smooth. No bitter taste, and I loved it – the MCT oil and butter help cut the strong taste, and using a milk frother to blend it is one of my favorite hacks to make sure your coffee isn’t a big oil slick. It really helps to meld everything together.
This is a great opportunity to add my morning fiber, and collagen peptides to this drink. I find this to be a great way to get my supplements in during the day.
Finally – I love Torani’s sugar free syrups. They’re amazing. They’re VERY dirty keto though.
They have sucralose in them as the sweetener. So far, Sucralose hasn’t done anything to kick me out of ketosis, or cause stalls/gains, but use it at your own risk.
There are definitely other ways to sweeten up your keto coffee if you really feel like you need it.
