Week 12 – The Guillain’s Method, my latest Nutrition experiment

At work we recently welcomed a new member in our team, a tall not very talkative young guy. Although we sit in the same office with 6 other people, I did not have the chance to speak to him in the short time he has been among us, mostly because I did not make the effort this week.

Then, last Friday, during a fire drill, our team ended up gathering at the bar near the office to have some coffee while waiting for the drill to end. While our manager proposed to offer coffee to all of us, I politely declined as, being informed in advance by a snitch, I brought along  my thermos of Bullet Proof Coffee. In fact I have been drinking it for the past two months, in fact since I read about intermittent fasting and its application on the Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey.

  • What is Bulletproof Coffee? 
  1. It all starts with the beans. Brew 1 cup (8-12 ounces) of coffee using filtered water with 2 ½ heaping tablespoons of freshly ground Bulletproof Coffee Beans. Use a French Press for ease of use and to preserve beneficial coffee oils that paper filters keep out.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons of Brain Octane Oil. You’ll learn much more about Brain Octane Oil below, but keep in mind that this stuff is powerful. Start with 1 teaspoon per cup and work your way up to 1-2 tablespoons over several days.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed, unsalted butter or grass-fed ghee. You read that right. It says butter. Don’t worry. This mixture also makes the creamiest, most delicious cup of coffee you’ve ever had. Oh, and make sure your butter is unsalted. Salty coffee is gross.
  4. Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it looks like a foamy latte.

Although nutrition is a very complicated and a controversial subject where everybody advises a different diet, today many highlight the critical need for GOOD FATS. Good fats like grass-fed butter, ghee, and coconut oil (as well as avocado) are absolutely necessary to good health of the mind and body.

Although I do not agree with all of Asprey’s diet, I tried a version of the Bulletproof coffee, regular coffee with a spoon of coconut oil every Morning. In fact, many of the same benefits apply to drinking coffee with coconut oil as it has a similar composition to “Brain Octane”. It’s a cheaper and more easily accessible option if you want to prepare it easily at home. There’s a lot of scientific evidence supporting the positive health effects of coconut oil too. Not only do I love the taste, it has worked for me for the past 2 months: I am more concentrated, I am not hungry from Morning to 1pm although I do not have any breakfast (I do intermittent fasting from 9pm to 1pm the next day) and I feel more energetic and sharp than ever.
