Bulletproof Coffee on Renegade Diet?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created January 13, 2013 at 5:46 PM

Hi guys,

I'm following the Renegade Diet, which is IF with a 14-16 hour fast and 8-10 hour feeding window. I'd like to try BP coffee but given that the feeding window is longer than most of the others following an IF protocol I was wondering if BP coffee in the AM would negate the benefits of this shorter fasting period. I'm also trying to bulk and when I feast I get in about 3k calories, if that makes a difference. Thanks!

Wow, Dick, let's look at the definition of intolerance: "...unwillingness or refusal to tolerate or respect contrary opinions or beliefs..." Seems to me that calling Dave a 'moron' demonstrates lack of respect, wouldn't you think?

Opinion. You Bigpapa need to go back and reread the books about things called individual needs trial and error also the BP has been completely hacked and been shown to be just a fad to fill that morons pockets. But if it makes you feel good then by all means I'm not intolerant against others needs. Kinda like the magnetic tennis bracelets.

I think paleo is a joke because I think consuming sticks of butter is healthy. You sir had better read the other thousands of reviews that debunk his methodology completely. You will find a very people that this might work but I can do the same on the water diet or the lemon diet.. paleo in itself is a ever evolving lifestyle that is ment to be tweeked to the individuals needs. I eat paleo style in meaning which means I can eat dairy because I'm not dairy intolerant.. guess I can't be paleo because I'm also not gluten intolerant either. It seems to me your just intolerant of others

Because it's the same thing only with added emphasis on Biogenic Amines and Mycotoxins, hence why some things people regularly consume on paleo/primal is allowed on BP Diet, but put much further down on the spectrum of 'healthy' things. Paul Jaminet was just on Dave's podcast recently and spoke highly of the diet.

Have you looked at all his citations in creating the bulletproof diet? or all of the people who endorse it? let's see off the top of the head - Paul Jaminet, PhD and author of Perfect Health Diet, Dr. Doug McGuff, MD and author of Body By Science, Dr.Mercola, MD and co-author of several books, Dr.Rocky Patel a leading figure in heart disease and diabetes... I'm not even trying to come off as confrontational, but it just seems so many people doubt what Dave says because he's not an MD or PhD which doesn't matter the least bit. If you believe BP Diet is a joke, then you think Paleo is a joke

Thanks. As much as I like the improved energy, body recomp, etc. benefits of IF I worry that the fast may be too thermogenic. Given my bulking goal this is why I was thinking of trying BP coffee to help lessen this effect.

The bulletproof guy, Dave Asprey, maintains that the coffee does NOT break the fast because it contains no protein or carbohydrate; the pure saturated fat in butter is directly processed as fuel.

Asprey: "The cool thing is that an all fat breakfast (like Bulletproof Coffee ??? ) doesn???t make your body think it???s broken the fast, so you get the benefits of the fasting anyway.

Plus, the coffee accelerates your metabolism a bit, which helps burn more calories during the fast.

I'd question daves sanity. You have a lot more problems if 1 you have ever bought moldy coffee . I never have and 2 if you think eating a stick of butter no matter the source is even remotely healthy. The BP diet is a joke. Just my point of view

It seems the consensus among those who practice BPF is that it is used to maintain calorie and energy levels during the fasting period. If your energy level is low or you are not gaining mass to your liking, I say give it a go - butter and coconut oil are mostly composed of SCFAs and MCFAs and I can't imagine this making a significant negative impact on autophagy or other benefits of fasting. But If you're already comfortable with the fasting period and eating enough cals during your feeding window I'm not sure why you'd want to mess with it.

Yes it will negate. Bp coffee has calories therefore taking you out of your fasted state.
