Starting Bulletproof Habits At 20! Need Advice And Insight.
Greetings to all!
My name is Nick and I'm a 20 year old male, biomedical engineering student, and medical student hopeful! I am obsessed with youth and longevity to say the least, and I am currently practicing Bulletproof habits I have learned and developed. I would like to share my current routine, and I would love to hear feedback, advice, comments, and criticisms! My habits are geared towards maximum internal health, youthful appearance, and mental/physical performance.
My own bulletproof coffee: 5-6 tablespoons of Kerrygold Unsalted, 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon of Upgraded Collagen.
My self-formulated tea: White tea with xylitol. (For collagen benefits)
The rest of my diet it not ideal, but it is the best I can manage being a college student with a meal plan. I only eat twice a day.
Lunch ~ 12 pm: canned sardines in extra virgin olive oil, 1 large avocado, added salt, blueberries/blackberries, and Kerrygold butter.
Dinner ~ 5:30 pm : Whatever crap meat they serve at the dining hall plus a heaping salad. I also bring my own Kerrygold butter.
Intermittent fast from dinner until Lunch next day (17-18 hours)
.05% Retin A 3 times a week
Water with Upgraded collagen and xylitol.
5000 IU Vitamin D3
2 g Vitamin C
1 krill oil
500 mg magnesium
Daily walk for 20 mins
Cold shower every morning for 2-5 mins.
Workout Routine: Doug Mcguff's ~20 minute HIIT routine once per week.
If I have time, sprint workout once a week.
Foam role muscles ~3 times a week.
I have only been following a ketogenic diet for about 3.5 months and the xylitol/tea/Upgraded Collagen for 1 week. In the past few months I have seen HUGE changes in my physical appearance, energy levels, and happiness!
The theory behind my goals is to reduce long term formation of in vivo advanced glycation end products (AGE's), systemic inflammation due to food allergens, insulin-IGF1 signalling, and keep good mitochondrial health.
Thank you all and feel free to reply!
