Bulletproof: Supplements and coffee for extra energy
Quite popular in the United States, the Bulletproof diet and Bulletproof coffee are known for improving physical and mental abilities, as well as promoting weight loss. Find out more about this trend and the Bulletproof brand.
Developed by Dave Asprey, a technology entrepreneur and investor in Silicon Valley, the Bulletproof diet is all about eating nutritious foods and getting enough good fats to energize the body, boost cognitive function, prevent cravings and promote weight loss. In fact, most of the caloric intake of this diet comes from saturated fat (50 to 60%), protein (20%), as well as vegetables and fibre. The flagship product of the Bulletproof diet is butter coffee. Composed of coffee, butter and pure oil triglycerides – butter coffee is a meal replacement free of any mycotoxins (micro-mushrooms that appear during fermentation).

The right way to prepare your Bulletproof coffee
Step 1: Infuse it
Choose your favourite brew method and use 2 ½ tablespoons freshly brewed coffee beans for a 240ml cup.
Step 2: Bulletproof it
Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of ghee or unsalted butter derived from grass fed milk. If you’re on your first Bulletproof coffee, add 1 teaspoon of Brain Octane to your coffee, and gradually increase the dose each day to 1 to 2 tablespoon(s). Blend for about 20 to 30 seconds until creamy and frothy.
