  • The original light roast has a pretty delicate taste and flavor profile, though I enjoyed it while I had it. Haven't tried the newer medium and dark roasts. Cacao powder and occasionally pumpkin spice are my go-to ways to add punch to my brew. Good …
  • How do those of you in relationships handle no mattress? We almost went with Caspar, but after a lot of research we went with another internet-based retailer, Saatva, Less expensive than casper ($899) great quality, great looking, and no flame …
  • Recently took the plunge on an $899 Saatva mattress (organic cotton blend, no formaldehyde, no chemical flame retardants, memory-foam layer). Good reviews on consumer reports. Between it and the boxspring the price was very competitive with the ones…
  • Took the plunge a few months ago. Love mine. That's not an exaggeration. I genuinely wish every bathroom had something like this.   I bought a second to get free shipping and predictably gave it away as a gift to someone who was thrilled (also…
  • The next version of iOS (9.3) is getting f.lux-like functionality. [Source here] Couldn't link the screenshot. It's after the jump.    Happy birthday Katolotus (and others)! 
  • Has anyone tried the BP collagen bars yet? They're a bit pricey, but I plan on pulling the trigger.   Finally pulled the trigger on the vanilla version. I think they're flippin' amazing.    Hard boiled eggs, avocados, etc are sti…
  • BV,   These bars are awesome. They're not filling enough to work as a meal replacement, at least for me. I use them as an on-the-go snack & energy source to help me push through to your next meal without feeling low-energy. They're also ex…
  • I feel for you!   I got allergy shots for several years. On the positive side, it seemed to have a noticeable effect on the severity of my seasonal allergies and pet allergies. Both improved, but never fully disappeared. I also got better at w…
  • Welcome Gaucho! I will second the stainless steel flasks. Mine works like a charm for longer trips. Wouldn't take it to a restaurant, though. Strange sideways looks aren't bulletproof. Ha ha.
  • Parker, Brain, dlb, Twilight, Dante: Thanks for the suggestions! Will be exploring these options soon!
  • I can't comment on the pour-overs, but I am very interested in the feedback you get. Have you tried an aeropress and paper filters? I tend to use metal, but I like the clean taste you get from the paper filters too.
  • Definitely bringing books and my trusty Aeropress. Fortunately air travel isn't a concern right now, just a 6+ hour car ride.   What is a vexing me is getting rid of my last 5 lbs of belly fat and shred out over the next month before my weddin…
  • Interesting anecdote and hilarious, if provocative, thread title.    I have never tried the RFLP and it seems like a pretty intense regimen. Everyone's body and their body's response to changes in behavior are different. You might not need tha…
  • I've read every post..and now I have no idea if this is just a trolling attempt..or if the OP actually believes everything he is saying. I put stevia in everything, until I stopped putting sweeteners in my drinks..I am quite fertile, I've only been …
  • The fact that you view this effect as a feature and not a bug is kind of amazing.   I'm guessing this coffee was roasted months ago, ground, packaged, sailed around the world is a shipping container and then sat on a grocery store shelf. So t…
  • To the OP, you can always try it and see how you feel afterwards. Your definition of"feeling incredible" might change! Though if you already feel incredible, you could just skip it entirely. But the whole bulletproof thing is about self experime…
  • My version of shaving cream is regular 'ol coconut oil. It smells like coconut oil. Never had a chemically smell. Though it does make my face extra shiny.   Maybe try it instead? You too can have an extra shiny face! 
  • I personally feel a big difference between BO and XCT and a smaller difference between XCT and NOW brand mct. Try for yourself. If your get it from a reputable source, what's the worst thing that could happen?
  • Bacon filter. Clearly.     That better be a pastured, heritage-breed pork bacon filter.   Or else... why even bother? You might as well be use a package of these:   
  • Please describe exactly what you put in your bulletproof coffee, and how much of it do you drink. Have you tried adding more fat to the coffee? Or drinking more than one? Serious question.   Also, is weight loss your goal? Or are you more inte…
  • I feel for you guys. I got these about once a month. Thinking back I think it was often as a result of being lower in electrolytes (I used to work in a hot warehouse,  drank tons of water and never added salt). I also remember it happening more afte…
  • That's a pretty long fasting window. If I were in your situation, I would drink it while traveling, and then get hungry about halfway through the day regardless of initial fat I consumed. WHOMP WHOMP. My technique is that I have about two mugs wo…
  • I talked about a recent experience protein-fasting here, but to summarize I basically I did BPIF with BPC like normal from 7 am to 6 pm. Dinner consisted of 2 carrots , 4 celery stalks , guacamole,  200g worth of sweet potato roasted in coconut oil,…
  • That, my friends, is what #WINNING looks like! Well done! 
  • Firezombie,   I'm not sure why I even mentioned triglycerides in the first place. Mine went up slightly, but overall they look fine. I doubt it relates to any kind of active infection. I did get sick this year, but everything I hear suggests t…
  • Stupid question time on my part, but are you still using grass-fed butter in addition to a small amount of the cacao butter? It's meant to contribute to but not replace grass-fed butter. From The Top 15 Craziest Hacks To Bulletproof Coffee:   …
  • Redzoom,   You mention that you're in constant hunger and have mild chronic fatigue. That's important. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure I've read on these forums that hunger and fatigue are both stressors on your body. The take-away was that…
  • Fire zombie, thanks for the input!    For dessert I'll have a few squares of dark chocolate a day. I really don't each much fruit. 2-3 times per week I'll have a banana with cinnamon, cacao, a spoonful of almond butter and grass-fed yoghurt in…
  • Ajfiorillo, I don't have an answer re: the headaches, sorry. Are you still having them?    Cruiser42, that's an interesting problem. What are you putting in your bulletproof coffee?     Ginal5, you can get more information regarding supp…
  • I'm 34. I started down the bulletproof road at the end of 2013. Since then I've dropped about 25 lbs, most of it belly fat. I have maybe 5-10 lbs left to burn. After that I will just do the intermittent fasting for health and focus and funsies. Ever…
