Bulletproof coffee and energy supplements
Very popular in Western Canada, the Bulletproof diet and coffee are known to improve physical and mental health as well as to promote weight loss. Close-up on this trend and derivative products.
Developed by Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Diet is about eating nutritious foods and getting enough good fats to energize the body, boost cognitive function, prevent food cravings and promote weight loss. Most of the calorie intake of this diet comes from good fats (50 to 60%), proteins (20%) and the rest from organic vegetables and fibers. But the real star of the Bulletproof Diet is butter coffee, made with mycotoxin-free coffee (micro mushrooms that appear during fermentation), butter and a few drops of pure triglyceride oil, altogether replacing breakfast.

How to prepare your Bulletproof coffee
Step 1: Infuse your coffee
Choose your preferred infusion method and use 2 ½ tsp. freshly ground coffee beans for each 240 ml of water.
Step 2: Bulletproof your coffee
Add 1 to 2 tsp. ghee or unsalted butter derived from grass-fed dairy cow milk. If this is your first Bulletproof coffee, add 1 tsp. of Brain Octane, and gradually increase the dose each day to reach 2 tsp. Blend for about 20 to 30 seconds until creamy and frothy.
