Bulletproof Challenge Days 2-5

I was listening to a Bulletproof podcast and Dave Asprey said “If you’re hungry, it’s your own fault.” Well, yeah. How about that?

I’m a few days in and I’m kind of amazed at the decrease in my hunger. My insulin-resistant, leptin-resistant, hormonally out-of-whack hunger has decreased.  True, I am consuming a LOT of Kerrygold butter.  A freaking lot of butter.  But I’m doing it according to plan: in my morning coffee, on my steamed veggies at lunch and dinner, in an afternoon tea or coffee (usually just a small amount) and in an emergency stash of almond butter-butter-and-chocolate powder blended together.  Oh, and at least half an avocado with dinner. I take less than 1/2 tsp MCT oil in my first coffee of the day and no other coconut oil. I’m working my way through some grass-fed mild Italian sausage, so that’s lunch, with a vegetable steamed greens, Brussels spouts, or cauliflower mash.  Dinner is usually eggs or chicken.

  • I’ve lost 4 pounds
  • I’ve been able to start working out. Woo hoo!  One full hour on the treadmill, including 1-2 minute bursts of high-intensity incline or speed, with almost NO post-exertion exhaustion.  I haven’t been able to do that in YEARS.  I’ve been increasing my walking just through dog walks, but that’s 15-20 minutes at a time, slowly with lots of stops. (Seriously, get a puppy for built in, graded exercise)
  • Less brain fog.

And I’m not hungry.  Did I mention I’m not hungry?
