  1. During the actual fasting period, probably not.
    Bulletproof comes with 440 calories, which by any standards breaks a fast. Most of those are fat calories, which limits its effect on insulin, but it does contain some protein as well.
    If you crave fat in your coffee, try just a shot of MCT oil instead. While this also breaks fast, it contains far fewer calories, and the medium chain triglycerides will help you metabolize fat.

  2. Bulletproof coffee, although a part of the ketogenic diet, should be considered a break of the fast. Coffee with a high content of fat, will still stimulate insulin, so you can have it as part of your eating window. What you want to do when you are fasting is to reduce the basal level of insulin and you only accomplish that by reducing the nuumber of insulin spikes in the day. This is how intermittent fasting is different from the ketogenic diet. If you eat 3 meals a day, even if it is a low-carb diet, you still get 3 insulin spikes.
    Combining a low carb diet with intermittent fasting is the best way to lose weight fast, and make and making the metabolic switch permanent. So if you are having coffee during your fasting period, make sure it is no sugar, no cream, no nothing, because that will be breaking your fast.
    If you skip breakfast and have a single meal in the late morning, you will be stimulating your hormone, which is antigonized by insulin. The growth hormone is secreted specially at bed time and first thing in the morning, so you want to avoid taking anything but water or black coffee, no sugar, early in the morning, for the best performance in your workouts. Make sure that you workout first thing in the morning, in deep fasting. The performance will surprise you.
