Since May 2013 I've been starting each and every morning with a cup of Dave Asprey's Bullet Proof Coffee (aka my morning cup of rocket fuel). It has been life changing! Not only do I have sustained energy for 5 to 6 hours immediately following my cup of “Kevlar Joe” but I've also noticed that my body fat levels have decreased and I've managed to add some extra muscle too!
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting that drinking a cup of bullet proof coffee is the only thing that has provided me with these results, in fact I know it is only one part of the overall equation. I follow a consistent training schedule coupled with a Paleo-like Diet in Zone portioning. For me it works great and the results have been awesome.
So what's holding you back from trying this? I have no idea. Heck I even have to plan cross-border “Butter runs” since Organic grass fed butter isn't available for resale in Canada. Funny story, this past weekend I picked up 20 bricks of Kerry's Gold unsalted butter from Trader Joe's and the clerk that was wringing through our order says “You like Bullet Proof Coffee hey?” with a big smile from ear to ear. Seems like Trader Joe's is noticing a trend.
[highlight]Bottom line, ask yourself, do I want my metabolism cranking, increased energy, and to feel more mentally alert? Well, if you said yes, it's time to go BulletProof![/highlight]
Top 3 reasons for making #BulletProof Coffee
- It makes you feel energized, alert, and focused all day without the crash of commercial energy drinks.
- It can melt body fat and increase muscle mass.
- It’s made with high quality unsalted grass-fed butter, so it tastes great and provides important fatty acids like CLA
What Bullet Proof Coffee is NOT
Bulletproof Coffee Recipe
care of the Bullet Proof Exec
- Start with 4-500 ml (2 mugs) of black coffee brewed with my mold-free Upgraded Coffee beans. (single origin coffee bean)
- Add 2 Tbs (or more, up to 80 grams, about 2/3 of a standard stick of butter) of Kerry Gold or other UNSALTED grass-fed butter
- Add 2 Tbs (30 ml) of Upgraded MCT oil for max energy, weight loss and brain function (this is 6 times stronger than coconut oil, your next best choice)
- Blend with a pre-heated hand blender, shake really hard in a flask, or (best) counter top blender until there is a creamy head of foam. (It doesn't work well if you mix it with a spoon)
