The Rapid Fat Loss Protocol
This is my first post in the forums, though I've been scouring this place for some time now. I'm on day two of the RFLP and I thought this would be a good opportunity to contribute a little something. Let's start with some stats. I'm a 27 year old male homo sapien who weighs 82.0 kg at 16.2% body fat. I have done a blood test prior, all my liver and kidney values are great (I've been living Bulletproof for a while now) and my 25OHD is at 172. I should say, I'm doing this protocol for 6 days, with the 7th day being a workout and refeed, because my client really wants to try this out but I don't feel comfortable recommending something I don't have personal experience in (even though the protocol was desgined by Dave).
I entered ketosis for 3 days prior just to make the transition easier.
Day 1 was not too easy but not too difficult either. Looking back, the two mistakes I made were
a) only taking 1 teaspoon glutathione - the reasoning here was I'd go up to the optimal dose.
only taking 4 charcoal capsules at a time - and here, didn't want to add constipation to the mix but let's just say things went the other way. This could have been my fault as in being so eager to sleep well I may have taken too much magnesium citrate.
This morning I woke up with the typical detox symptoms; joint pain and general malaise, feeling cold, runny/stuffy nose. So I've upped today's dose of Upgraded Glutathione to 2 tsp, curious to see wether this will reduce symptoms or increase them due to faster detoxification..I will take 8 Upgraded Coconut Charcoal capsules at a time today, and will up my vitamin C to 3g per dose as opposed to the 2g earlier.
Another 30 min before I get to have my BP coffee, so counting the seconds at this point. Other than that hydration has been high, I'm drinking like a fish (adding a little Himalayan pink salt to every other litre I drink to keep minerals high).
I will keep a daily update as well post protocol thoughts, opinions and outcomes. Please feel free to ask me anything, I will do my best to check-in twice daily.
I wish you all a wonderful morning/evening wherever you are.
