  • Control your fight/flight response by training with heart rate variability feedback (emWave2) 

Food is the number one drug people take in the world.

  • A common treatment prescribed by chiropractors and naturopaths is an anti-inflammatory diet which includes the elimination of wheat from the diet. 

Upgraded Kale Shake - Protect yourself from Oxalic Acid build-up

The problem with Kale is it contains large amounts of oxalic acid (What the plant produces to protect itself) which can lead to Kidney stone formation. Make sure you buy Dinosaur Kale (a reference to how it looks) - It will contain about 1/2 the amount of oxalic acid

  • Steam the Kale for 5 minutes then dump the water.
  • It keeps the Vitamin K and also eliminates up to a 1/3 of the oxalic acid
  • 'Calcium-loading' Calcium-oxalate forms in the gut and you poop it out or Mineral water
  • Make your Kale shake upgraded with: Mineral water, grass-fed butter, protein, collagen, MCT oil + calcium

Cheat Days

  • Avoid wheat, grains and other inflammatory / anti-metabolite foods
  • Go for xylitol or stevia over other sweetener options 

Testosterone

Maintains his testosterone level at that of a 30 year old. Being obese, his testosterone over-aromatised meaning he was left with lower that optimal levels. To this day, Dave applies a small dose of bio-identical testosterone daily. Dave regularly gets blood panels to make sure he maintains an optimal level.

Muscle Mass Gain with Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting is essentially consuming all of your daily food in a shortened period of time. Why it works:

mTOR stands for “Mammalian Target of Rapamycin" and acts to increase protein synthesis in your muscles. Both exercise and coffee raise cellular energy use while simultaneously inhibiting your muscle building mechanisms (mTOR) for a brief period, which causes it to “spring back” and build even more muscle as soon as you eat. There are 3 known ways to raise mTOR. Intermittent fasting, exercise, and coffee (or more weakly, chocolate, green tea, turmeric, or resveratrol) Bulletproof Fasting hits all 3 ways to compress mTOR, causing a bigger rebound and better use of your food for muscle building.

In males, the main biologically active estrogen is estradiol. The primary source of estradiol in men is from the conversion (aromatization) of testosterone. As men age, the production of androgens from the adrenals and gonads is decreased. The aromatization of testosterone to estradiol is often maintained, but due to a variety of factors, more testosterone is aromatized in fatty tissues, causing a further imbalance of the ratio of testosterone to estrogen, i.e. too much estradiol and not enough testosterone. The result is a deficiency of beneficial testosterone and an excess amount of estradiol. (source: lef.org)

Bulletproof Coffee

  • Upgraded Coffee beans contain about 1/2 the caffeine of other coffees
  • The darker the roast the less antioxidants and more toxins like acrylamide. Upgraded Coffee is only medium-roasted.
  • Turn of inflammation in the brain: Brew your coffee with a french press to preserve Cafestol and Kawehol: 
  • Butter from grass fed cows gives you Butyric Acid: Short Chain Fatty acids that heal the gut.
  • Mycotoxins: IRB study soon to be published. Cognitive function test. 6/9 people showed statistically significant improvements.

Mycotoxins

A chronic background noise of inflammation on account of 'acceptable' industry standards. Here's a compilation of mycotoxin research.

The Upgraded Coffee Difference:

  1. Pick ripe and healthy cherries only
  2. Zero fermentation (Indonesian or African processing: Pick all the cherries, lay out on a tarp to sit (and spoil))
  3. Mechanically processed
  4. Addresses the supply chain issues from farm to bag
  5. Upgraded Coffee is good for 6+ months, but best consumed within a month. You can freeze your coffee in vacuum sealed bags to preserve the flavour. Don't open the bag until it's completely defrosted.
