Bulletproof In Las Vegas

Bulletproof in Vegas


 


First of all, I want to thank all forum posters for all the great information you've shared about BPC and travel hacking.  I went BP in early November '14 looking for ways to get more energy, and I got exactly that, and as a bonus lost 10 pounds in 6 weeks. Although I was never too overweight, I'm closer to an ideal weight now.


 


I just came back from 8 days in Vegas trying to stay bulletproof and wanted to share my experience. I found that it was possible to stay 'mostly' BP even with a busy vacation schedule.This is what I took to the trip :


 


- A mini USB fridge purchased online at Thinkgeek


- 2 bars of Kerrygold from Trader Joe's.


- MCT oil (from BPC website), 5 ounces in 2 containers purchased at my local CVS.


- Box of Stevia.

    Good work :smile:


     


    One tip I do, is tell the hotel you have a medical condition that requires your medication to be refrigerated. They will supply you a fridge in your room for this, I always email them before to confirm. Makes life easier when you've got a fridge, for you butter and supplements.


     


    On the supplement front, I take 5 bill boxes with me with all the supplement already separated. I take a lot of sups, so have 2 bill boxes for my morning sups and 3 for my evening. I can get a weeks worth in the boxes, so it's pretty easy to stock them up before travelling. As you've not taking too many you'll probably on need two.

    As for Vegas, I've been there quite a bit since going Bulletproof. But I'm probably considered a little hard core. I'll have a Bulletproof Coffee in my room (I take a blender and everything with me), which will last me to my evening meal. I'll have some lindt and an avocado if I need something and only eat once in the evening. Then I'll normally just look for a good steak (I'll go corn-fed if I can get grass) with lots of veg. 


     


    Vegas is pretty easy to stay fairly Bulletproof for a holiday, with plenty of choices and you can get most stuff needed. If you have a car you can get anything. I love vegas.

    Any chance we can see your Vegas BP fridge? Nice tip btw.

  • Not sure I took a pic, but it was a large black unit they brought up on a wheeler (too heavy to carry). Could probably fit 24 cans in it. Not sure on the volume, but I got all my sups, butter and quite a few bottles of water. Way more than I needed. It was a bit old and beat up, but fully working. Just stuck it in the corner of the room.

  • I frequently request a fridge for my room in Vegas, but they charge me a daily fee.  Did the medical excuse remedy the added fee?


    Seeing through the chaotic.
  • Was at the Mandalay Bay and there was no extra charge. I did play up the medical angle in emails before my arrival and then a check-in. Guess they didn't fancy the risk of stretcher going through the casino  


     


    Not all publicity is good!

  • Any particular restaurants where you can get a good grass fed steak while in LV?  Obviously they've got something for everyone there but if there are any good spots for organic, grass fed, local foods  ... would love to know, going in a few days.

    Currently in Las Vegas and staying at the Riviera (as it closes next month and never stayed there), upgraded to a room that comes with a fridge for about $4.50 a day. Still email customer service about my medicial issue become I arrived and they confirmed by room had a fridge.

    Just used it for 2 sticks of Kerry Gold, some Lindt and my sups and plenty of sparkling water.


     


    Started cheating a little now, as I have a friend out here, who keeps a suitcase of stuff and drops it off as I arrive and takes it back when I leave. So I've bought a cheap kettle, a coffee grinder, a US plugged magic bullet and plenty of other bits so I don't have to carry so much. Only been cheating the last two trips :wink:

    This is the first trip I've bought beans and ground them here and I brought out the blender this trip, which I'll leave here this time. Only issue I have is if the bits can't be dropped off the day I land, as I'll have not bits to make a proper Bulletproof Coffee, So I'll always bring a few bits to make a basic version for the first day. I'll bring some MCT oil and the butter anyway. Normally order a large bag of coffee and some oil from the upgraded site while I'm here to take back, saves on postage.

    Just done an 'All You Can Eat' Sushi. Gonna consider this a 'Carb re-feed' meal and a 'Cheat Meal', as I ate around 6 rolls in 3 rounds of ordering and felt like crap after forcing the last few pieces down. Tasted great, but once it all in the gut and the taste is long gone and regret of eating too much starts. I doubt it was the highest quality sushi and the 'Vegas Roll' was deep fried (pic below)! $35 to eat enough to make you regret your decisions.

    Only lesson I learn is that the right amount to get is about the same as ordering off the menu, as a roll was $12, so 2-3 roll is about right. 6 is too many

    Luxor for this months trip! Emailed them my standard request and they normally charge $25 a night for a fridge for the room, but due to my medical issue, they going to do a one-off fee of $25. Been added to my booking and should be there when I arrive.


     


    Mandalay Bay was Free, but then it's a lot more expensive to stay there, so happy with $25 for my 7 night stay. One more trip this year, with hotel not yet book. Who will I test next?

    Have had success with in0room refrigeration at the Wynn, Hard Rock and Bellagio with pre-arrivial requests. The Wynn didn't have a spare fridge, but allowed my to remove items from the mini-bar for my medication. Lets see if they try and charge me at the end of my stay, info on the other two once I've stay there!


     


    I can also confirm that US style toilets can't handle my first movement of the day, needing 2 or 3 flushes!

    Don't blame all US toilets. There are some older direct flush units with serious power, but yeah, go to a modern trendy spot in the middle of a desert and you might get some pansy water saver toilets. 

  • Have a free fridge at the Excalibur too!


     


    If they every ask what the medication is for, going to say it's Antipsychotic medication. That should get me a fridge!

    Haha. I know you're joking, but they're not allowed to ask.

  • No, that's what I'll say, either that or 'anal leakage' medication.

    Now that's a joke!
