Can Your Coffee Stop Bullets?

Hey National, 

Hope everyone had a great week and weekend. As a student at National you'll find that once you're in the flow of the trimester and tests, assignments, and quizzes are rolling around, the weeks have a tendency to just fly by. After about Week 10, I start getting bored with my classes and I'm in the mood for fresh material and a new start. Now onto more interesting stuff....

BulletProof Coffee For A BulletProof Morning

"I don't always drink coffee… but when I do I drink BulletProof coffee."
-- Most Interesting Coffee Drinker in the World

One of the biggest sets of complaints and biggest obstacles to achieving health revolves around breakfast. People don't have enough time. People don't know what to eat. People are tired or mentally sluggish 2 hours after eating...etc., etc., etc.

I have stumbled upon a solution from Dave Asprey aka The BulletProof Exec. Since, blood sugar stabilization and healthy fats are essential for sustained energy, and increased mental performance throughout the day (remember your brain is 80% fat), Dave conjured up this incredible "biohack" for your morning routine. Toss the insulin-raising, energy-sapping, fat-storing toast, bagels, oatmeal, and cereal in the morning and get a load of coffee mixed with...2 Tbsps....of Grass Fed...wait for it...BUTTER!?!!?!

Am I serious? Yes. Will it cause heart disease? No. Know Your Fats by Dr. Mary Enig put that whole fat scare to rest years ago. This recipe I had to try when I read it and I must say it's incredible! The odd thing was it actually TASTES GOOD and produces LASTING ENERGY and MENTAL CLARITY. I wish I thought of this sooner! 

My Twist: I add a heaping scoop of chocolate protein powder for extra protein in the morning to take better advantage of the fat loss properties explained in the 4 Hour Body (30g of protein within 30 minutes of waking had the highest correlation with fat loss effectiveness of all other lifestyle changing habits!)

Bulletproof Coffee Recipe 
(Original Post Here:  How to Make Your Coffee Bulletproof...And Your Morning Too) 

  • Start with 4-500 ml (2 mugs) of black coffee brewed with my BulletProof mold-free upgraded coffee beans (this is important)
  • Add 2 Tbsps. (or more, up to 80 grams, about 2/3 of a standard stick of butter) of Kerry Gold or other UNSALTED grass-fed butter
  • Add 30 grams of MCT oil for max energy, weight loss and brain function (this is 6 times stronger than coconut oil, your next best choice)
  • Blend with a pre-heated hand blender, Magic Bullet, or (best) counter top blender until there is a creamy head of foam. (It doesn't work well if you mix it with a spoon) 

Enjoy Your Morning that Stops Bullets,
