So I eat a low carb paleo ketogenic diet (Bulletproof Diet without tons of coffee though) for roughly a year now. I feel great on the diet but always seem to have looser stools. I dont really have much bloating, acne, or gas, and I dont have very... (more)
Ok so basically I have a bottle of activated coconut charcoal, and love it. Except for gluten exposures but that's a whole different story (super gluten sensistive), also have a bottle of bentonite clay. Quick story - I had someone give me... (more)
Looking for some answers regarding BP-IF that I haven't been able to find... Looking to incorporate this into my regimen 2-3 days/week. So, first off, can I still benefit from doing BP-IF 2-3x per week as opposed to every day? next, how... (more)
I have never tried Bulletproof coffee but it sure does sound amazing. I am wondering do people drink this with their breakfast or is the coffee their breakfast? I love my bacon and eggs, so is drinking Bulletproof coffee along with them... (more)
Recipe found here: Dave Asprey's "get some" ice cream Anyone ever try this? Its an ice cream that is basically 8 eggs blended with aporoximately 15 Tbsp of coconut oil/ gf butter/ mct oil, sweetened with xylitol (personally ide use honey or... (more)
Anyone try the HeartMath emWave 2 program offered over at bulletproofexec.com? Dave Asprey swears by this and I know it has good reviews, but I am interested in hearing personal experiences with it. For those of you who have not tried it, what... (more)
I'm currently drinking a mug of "hot chocolate" (made with coconut oil, raw cacao powder and hot water) and wondering if this could be a good bulletproof substitute for those who can't stomach coffee. I drink green tea with a tsp of coconut oil... (more)
I'm not much of a coffee drinker, my last stint as one being during employment with a game publisher with very demanding hours years ago, however I've recently gotten back into green tea. Of course with all of the references to Bulletproof Coffee... (more)
i just don't get the whole 'plunk a gob of fat in my drink and call it a meal' thing. you could eat real food and it would have way more vitamins and minerals. and you can chew it.
So I drink BPC EVERY morning with 4 tbsp butter and 3 tbsp MCT oil. I'm going on a trip where I will not be able to do this for four straight mornings. I'll also be exposed to a lot of SAD foods and it will not be socially acceptable to choose... (more)
I would like to hear from people who use Bulletproof Coffee daily... If you think about it that cup(s) of coffee is actually close to 500 calories mostly from fats. So what is the difference between drinking that or having a fatty 500 calorie... (more)
I was on ABC news this morning and saw something about a pharmaceutical that is supposed to help with cognitive abilities, brain fog, etc... I clicked on the video out of curiosity and "Whammo!" there was Dave Asprey. At first I didn't put it... (more)
I put up a post several days ago asking for thoughts on my (maybe) high cholesterol. I've since seen chatter regarding raised elevations of cholesterol in people using a French press to make their coffee which is a device I've used everyday for a... (more)

Hi, I've been paleo for 3 months and loving it. I usually start my day with a bulletproof coffee which I'm happy with. On a recent weekend I didn't fancy it, so I had a black coffee with a teaspoon of coconut oil and a teaspoon of walnut oil. Is... (more)
SOUNDS DELICIOUS! I have some hazelnut oil that I may need to try that with! As far as safety, yeah, you are fine. Walnut oil is good up to about 400 degrees or so. Hot coffee is no problem.
I have a question regarding how best to drink bulletproof coffee. Is it best to drink it down all at once (ie over the course of 15 minutes for example) or to sip it throughout the morning? I have been doing Paleo for about 3 months now and have... (more)
It sure sounds weird to me, but I am willing to experiment! Has anyone tried it, and maybe have some advice? Also, can the combination of tea and fat have the same great effects that coffee and fat produce? The reason I am asking is because I... (more)
Okay I am a 32 year old female who is trying IF with bulletproof coffee. I have done it in the morning twice and love it so no problems there. My questions are: How often is this done? Daily? Every other? As much as one wants? On the website... (more)
For those of you who do the bulletproof coffee - can you taste the butter? I really, really hate the taste and smell of butter. For those who have tried it with something other than butter, do you get the same effect with the other... (more)
Like many folks I have been adding butter and MCT oil to my coffee. So I'm ingesting about 16 oz of coffee (the low-toxin kind) with 4 tbsp of butter and 3 tbsp of MCT oil each morning as my "breakfast". Its about 600 calories, by the... (more)
Asprey says stay away from Omega-6 acids, but I find that coconut, eggs, and avocado are all sources. Can anybody clear this up for me? Sorry if it's common sense I'm just overlooking. If you just want to debate Bulletproof please don't bother.... (more)
Keep in mind Dave Asprey is a salesman not a clinician. That said if you are on a ketogenic or near-ketogenic diet, like Asprey suggests, Omega 6 aren't quite the issues they are with higher-carb diets.
Alright... I like the intermittent fasting. Makes me feel, well... bulletproof! But, to optimize nutrition I break my fast halfway through my workout with a collagen supplement, then end my workout with a full-spectrum protein. Half hour later I... (more)
