  • Thanks for the input. I was thinking about just coconut oil... but then spent money on this shea butter castor oil hair mask and tried it today... ugh, my hair feels dry after I washed it out! I'm thinking to try to return it and just stick with s…
  • Wow, crazy long but very interesting post here! I think it will take me a week to get through it. In addition to IF and bulletproof, I have started trying to drink a little more water during the day. Basically never drank except for coffee in the…
  • I have an LDL that fluctuates between 120 and 200... in generally depending on how bulletproof I eat. Over the past two years, I notice finer tweaks. Seems damaged oils is a major contributor. LDL is a response to inflamation in the body... so th…
  • Your experiences seem similar to my own... heart pounding before or just after lying down to bed.  That part has gotten worse and I am currently seeing a doc for a sudden onset of edema that occured after a few days taking a B-vits supplement that I…
  • Great thread.  I will look into the 5x5 for a lifting routine I can do with my 15 yo. athlete.  He wants to get ripped, I need to build strength (an keep up with him   Bulletproof forums delivers yet again
  • Thank you!  This is perfect.  Just the advice he was looking for. I am learning a lot about the different protein powders.  Especially collagen, whey, and now BCAAs.   Is there one that tastes good?  He is eating these bars that I make from sweet …
  • UPDATE   Thanks again for your sage advice on this forum.  My son is doing fantastic... added three eggs cooked with veggies in the morning and some homemade protein bars to his lunch and post workout.  With this, he saw a jump in his appetite…
  • Can't thank you guys enough for the responses.  As you can probably guess, teenagers seem much more receptive to this kind of advice when it doesn't come from their parents.  I picked up some protein powders (RAW protein, RAW meal, and Reserveage Gr…
  • So he is 190lbs, has classes, swims 90 minutes every day, and does weight training. Breakfast is tea with coconut oil, lunch is an apple, then dinner must be around 3000kcal with 190gr of protein, at least.   Would you mind explaining …
  • Yea no.  It's a big dinner but nothing you would bat an eye at.  I agree he's not eating enough and your calculation helps me see just how far he is off!  Yikes.  No wonder he isn't making progress with lifting.  Thank you.  I am new to figuring out…
  • Based on the approach on Ben Lynch's cite http://mthfr.net/mthfr-c677t-mutation-basic-protocol/2012/02/24/, I added a few supplements that have had a big difference in my energy and that I believe are helping me to safely detox.   Prior to this, I h…
  • Thanks for the update.  I have not experienced the full body swelling that you seemed to describe early in this thread, but extreme swelling in my legs that was new for me.  I have also been focusing on detox although it is a much gentler approch ov…
  • Thanks for your responses! We are going to start hitting up the universities. There is also a sleep lab where I work... I'm hoping they might have some tools that he could use. Thanks again! Seems like we are on the right track.
  • I stumbled across this thread searching metabolic panel and am wondering if you have resolved the issue. I am having the same symptoms. I have been seeing a doc to no avail. My numbers are very close to yours. My swelling is also starts in my le…
  • Interested in this after being hit in my car yesterday.  I cannot focus today and my brain actually feels swollen... like pressure inside.  Actually, as I am writing this it occurs to me I should just go to the hospital.

  • So did the test and says I'm toxic.  I have seen the black mold on our window sills when cleaning.  How do I start cleaning up the house?  Bleach everything, toss the mattresses, and get air purifiers going?  No obvious water problems in our house, …
  • My advice would be to focus on nutrition rather than weight loss.  Some of your descriptions lead me to guess that you need to add digestive support, like HCl or even bitters.  Also, since you are breastfeeding you need to go easy on yourself.  Your…
  • I have a permanantly tall standing desk.  For breaks as I condition myself to it, I have a high stool nearby.  No reason that the chair you sit in can't be high enough for the standing desk.   As an example:
  • Watching the creativeLIVE presentation on sleep yesterday I gathered that I am already doing a great just of creating a bulletproof bedroom... doing almost 100% of his suggestions, haven't tried the earthing mat yet.   Concluded that the thing…
  • Very cool. I'm going to give this hack a try.
  • Joeld123, I just took that test... average reaction time with 0.46 seconds, setting me deeply in the danger zone.  And I actually feel really good today compared to most.  Guess feeling like a zombie isn't very far from the truth.  Scary.
  • I don't take supplements regularly at this point.  If I'm stressed and need to head to bed, I'll have some natural calm.  About once a week if I notice I'm getting run down, I take some zinc and/or vit. D.  I add a dose of iron once a month before m…
