Some people have Bulletproof coffee for breakfast. For myself, I eat four eggs and four pieces of bacon for breakfast. What’s the nutritional difference between the two meals?

The calories are nearly identical. The energy cost of eating protein (about 35%) more than offsets the small number of calories more in the bacon and eggs. There’s almost no energy cost to eating fat (around 95% gets stored).
