The Bulletproof Coffee Experiment

wpid-IMG_20130818_064918.jpgEver heard of Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof® coffee?  I read about this stuff almost a year ago, and then I stumbled across a mention of it again the other day.  Since the claims people are making about this stuff are unreal — radical weight loss, increased focus, etc. etc. — I decided to give it a try.

Now, when I say ‘give it a try’ what I mean is that I’m going to have this stuff for breakfast every morning for two weeks.  I’m taking a measurement of my waist at the biggest point — right around my muffin-tops — every day.  At the end of two weeks I’ll blog a graph of my waist measurement and blog about the affects the stuff had on me.

To be clear, I can’t afford the fancy coffee and MCT oil the creator of this concoction is selling on his website, so I’m making the most common substitution made by proponents in the same financial boat.  Here’s Dave’s recipe compared to mine:

Dave’s Recipe My Recipe
12oz of brewed Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Coffee 12 oz of brewed Regular Coffee
2 tbsp MCT oil 2 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil (67% MCT)
2 tbsp unsalted Kerrygold butter 2 tbsp unsalted Kerry Gold butter

Nutrition info for my recipe: Calories: 420, Fat: 52, Protein: 0, Carbs: 0, Fiber: 0.

I just had my first cup.  The first thing I noticed is that it’s delicious.  If anything remarkable happens — like it makes me feel awful, or gives me an upset stomach, or what-have-you — I’ll report that as it happens.  Otherwise you’ll have to stay tuned for the final results in two weeks…

UPDATE:  I didn’t make it the two weeks.  Read the details here.
