Have you heard of Bullet Proof coffee? The one with the butter in it? Bullet Proof coffee is meant to be a part of the Bullet Proof diet, which is designed to improve mental clarity, increase your energy, and help you lose weight. In this post, we’re going to focus on the Bullet Proof diet, and the ten steps that you can take to start implementing it in your own life to look better, feel better, and think better.
Step 1: Sugar Elimination
The less sugar you put into your body, the better you will begin to feel. Sugars, especially simple sugars that are added to many fruit juices, sports drinks, and processed foods, can mess with your blood sugar which leads to weight gain.
Step 2: Add the Right Fats
The right fats in your diet will not only help you feel less hungry, but it will also give you the energy you need throughout the day without the spikes and crashes from changes in blood sugar levels.
Step 3: Eat Quality Meats
Meat from grass-fed animals and wild-caught fish is significantly healthier than those who are raised on grain and in fish farms, where the focus is getting them as fat as possible as fast as possible. These meats also contain less contaminants and toxins.
Step 4: Grain Elimination
Even people that don’t have celiac disease should still avoid gluten and other grains since these can cause a negative inflammatory effect in your body.
Step 5: Additive Elimination
Many foods contain synthetic additives, particularly in the form of artificial colorants and flavorings. Artificial sweeteners also have a profoundly negative impact on your health.
Step 6: Legume Elimination
This includes beans, lentils, and peanuts. This is because when cooked normally rather than fermented, they contain chemicals that can prevent the absorption of other nutrients.
Step 7: Dairy Limitation
Although dairy itself isn’t bad for you, most of the dairy you normally buy has been processed, pasteurized, and homogenized, which sucks the nutrients out of it and causes it to do much more harm in your body than good. Choose grass-fed, raw dairy products rather than the processed kinds.
Step 8: Go Organic
When it comes to fruits and vegetables, eating organic will make a huge difference in your life. Non-organic fruits and vegetables contain a number of dangerous pesticides and may be genetically-modified, which can do additional harm to your body, so always choose organic when possible.
Step 9: Lower Cooking Temperatures
Whenever possible, don’t cook your food at all, as heating most foods can destroy the nutrients. When it comes to meat, the lower the temperature you’re able to cook it at, the better you will feel. In any case, you should completely avoid using microwaves along with grilling, frying, and smoking food because of the carcinogens added by these cooking methods.
Step 10: Limit Fruits
Keep in mind while eating more fresh plant-based foods that many fruits are high in sugar. Even though these are natural sugars, they can still cause unhealthy spikes in blood sugar levels, so be sure to limit your fruit intake and try to eat ones that have lower sugar content.
