5. "At almost 500 calories a cup, you're certainly not consuming fewer calories than you would eating a normal breakfast," explained Dr Trudi Deakin, a consultant to the NHS on the prevention and management of diabetes, as per a report by the Daily Mail.

"But because Bulletproof doesn't contain carbohydrates, it means that your body doesn't trigger an insulin response which tells the body to store fat," Dr Deakin explained further.
