Giving Back: 53 Days Of Bp

I began the Bulletproof diet in August of 2015 with hopes of losing some weight, getting that lean ripped look back, and working out less frequent. During that I kept a log of everything (with the exception of water) that went into my mouth during that time. The only part not included was during a 5 day trip to Texas for the death of a family member. Overall the BP Diet killed it and I ended up cut and 12 pounds lighter in 53 days. Of course I exercised alongside this but I was able to go from 6 days a week working out to just 3. By day 19 I was already down 10 pounds so had I kept up that pace; my loss could've been much greater. I'm very physically active however and my workouts require me to eat more carbohydrates if I'm going to recover properly. 


 

My daily lineup is below and you'll notice as the days go on I go more and more BP. As the results kept coming in, I added more and more BP elements to the program. Eventually adding vitamins and minerals around Day 20 and the dosages too. Some notes to remember throughout this read are: organic vegetables are assumed, white rice is assumed, and my morning 'water' is actually RO water with 1/4 tbsp of Himalayan salt. The following acronyms are used: GT = green tea, BP = bulletproof, GF = grass fed, CO = coconut oil, BPSPGS = bulletproof sweet potato ginger soup, cap/tab = one pill capsule. I want to thank @suntoucher for his cheat sheets on the BP diet, supplementation, and nootropics and Dave for the BP diet. Btw I just received his new book Bulletproof: The Cookbook. Thanks and feel free to comment or ask questions.

    Try magnesium bath salts. You'll notice a big effect from them as well, especially with regards to muscle tension.

  • Thanks guys for all the encouragement! Yes this next time through i'm taking before and after pictures so I'll have some photographic evidence. I'm starting another run very soon so I'm pretty excited. It's going to be quite focused on getting lean and bringing my body fat down but I'll use the BP diet to get there. 


     


    Cheese curds are a big thing in Wisconsin :)


     


    Wow magnesium bath salts are a good deal! I'm going to have to read up on that more. Thanks.
