Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting: Mental Performance Protocol
Goal: Improve and/or sustain mental performance while getting more benefits than plain intermittent fasting.
Step 1: Finish dinner by 8 pm
No snacking after dinner – go to bed whenever you want.
Step 2: Drink Bulletproof Coffee in the morning
Bulletproof Coffee is a mix of brewed Upgraded Coffee Beans, grass-fed butter, and pharmaceutical grade MCT oil. You can find the complete recipe here. Don’t mess around with cheap coffee, which will sabotage your efforts since 91.7% of green coffee has mycotoxins in it.
Drink as much Bulletproof Coffee as you like in the morning. You can have another cup before 2:00 PM if you get hungry. No coffee after 2:00 PM or you won’t sleep.
Step 2.5 (optional) – Work out
This is not necessary to gain muscle and lose fat, but it helps. If you’re going to work out, lift something heavy right before you break the fast in step 3. I’d suggest high intensity weight training. Shorter and harder is better than longer exercise. You will need to sleep more if you exercise.
Step 3: Do not eat until 2pm
This means you’ve not had anything to eat except Bulletproof Coffee for 18 hours. This should occur from the time you wake, through the morning, and into the afternoon. If 18 hours is too long, start with a shorter fast and increase from there.
Step 4: Eat as much Bulletproof food as you like for 6 hours (until 8 pm)
The number of meals you eat during this time is irrelevant, as is the amount of calories.
Here is a sample day of Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting:
8:00 AM: Drink Bulletproof Coffee.
2:00 PM: Break fast with foods from the Bulletproof Diet.
8:00 PM: Eat your last meal before beginning the fast.
Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting extends your life, improves brain function, and makes you more resilient on all levels. Even if you just start drinking Bulletproof Coffee for breakfast in place of the watery bags of sugar we call fruit, you can take advantage of some of these benefits. Once you start Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting, you will have gained an unfair advantage on your peers in health, longevity, and performance.
