Bulletproof Weight Training
Bulletproof weight training
I discovered the bulletproof "system" just 2 weeks ago and your information has been an eye-opener. Thanks. I have a lot to learn.
I'm currently living in South America where good butter and beef are readily available. MCT not yet been found and (strangely) coconut oil is very difficult to find. Coffee quality questionable, but I'm adding 50g butter + 1 tbsp coconut oil to each of the 2 mugs I drink for breakfast. I don't get a buzz, so I guess it's not good coffee.
(In 3 months I'll be in a more accessible region and able to buy bulletproof coffee, MCT, supplements, books, etc.)
12 weeks ago I started weight training 3x weekly, as it's too hot for outdoor sport. My personal trainer put me on a high protein and high carbohydrate diet, eating MUCH more that I usually do. I have been building some muscle, but also creating a fat belly.
I've now started to follow the bulletproof diet as closely as possible without telling my trainer.
I'm late 50s. I was 76-77kg when I started training, so I guess I'm now 80-85kg, judging by my waistline increase. Weight doesn't worry me but I want to get rid of my new belly and also gain muscle mass. I do like wine and beer.
I've reached approx. 55% of my daily calorie intake in fat. What carb intake would you suggest to balance my training? Sorry if that is a novice's question.
Feel free to ask me to elaborate on any further details needed and thanks in advance.
I am incredibly grateful for all those who dedicate their time and experience here in helping others. I once was able to do the same in several other fora, often spending hours on end answering questions, which in turn gave me great personal satisfaction.
