What do u think of bullet proof coffee as a pre workout drink...i have been trying it for a couple of days, and feel energized. Whats your thought on this?

That sounds like a terrible idea. Lots of vasoconstriction many trips to the bathroom, and dehydration. The increased cortisol would be beneficial to performance, but this would be outweighed by the muscle catabolism, and reduced lean mass gains.

I have also tried Bulletproof Coffee. And the days I drink it, the sun seems to shine sunnier. But...

I believe Bulletproof Coffee is more of a treat and should not become an everyday habit. That's my personal opinion though. And really, how you drink BC will be based on your personal experience and opinion too.

Hey, if it works for you, great! But just like most "energy drinks," there will be a point of plateau. BC will become a norm for your body, and there will be a diminishing return to the energy you "feel" from it.

So, I would treat BC more as an "energy treat," not a daily, pre-workout drink.

I do Intermittent Fasting, both the leangains method as well as sometimes Dave Asprey's recommended version with Bulletproof Coffee.

During the week I work out after work, but on the weekends I work out generally before lunch time so I'm still in my fasting window. I've had great workouts at the end of my fast with some Bulletproof Coffee in my system.

I don't know if I agree with the above about a plateau. There's no sugar in it like an energy drink. The energy is from the fat in the grass-fed butter.
