4th Change: The Start of Wearing Made to Measure Pants 5 years ago

What gives me enough confidence to take bulletproof was wearing my made to measure pants that were made 5 years ago. My tummy started to flatten and I continuously burnt fat. How do I know? You can always buy a ketone stick to test your urine.

What is more interesting is that I started to wear S size shirt instead of M. I had shrunk from L to M and then to S. I used to hover around 76kg to 80kg but nowadays, I hover around 75kg. Fat percentage is around 20%.

My colleagues around me had noticed how much weight I had lost. I have also started to recycle my clothes. Letting go my size L & M shirts.

Nowadays, I don't really take bulletproof coffee per se. Instead, I will ensure drinking a cup of black coffee with a piece of butter. Whether I'm at a cafe or a coffeeshop. A long black with a piece of butter is a must.

I will share with you about the 5th change in my next post.

3rd Change: Starting the journey with Bulletproof Coffee

3rd Change. The day I started incorporating butter into my coffee...

Yup. A lot of people around me were stunned with this new habit of mine. Although a few friends know what I'm doing, many don't know what is that. It is called Bulletproof coffee. You guys can google it. It is out there.

So what is my first hand experience with Bulletproof?

1) It totally remove my dependency on sugar. The need to have cup of teh in the late afternoon. The need to have a cake after a meal. The need to have something sweet. It is all gone.

2) The need to have a large portion during a meal. This is gone for some reasons. The body started to tell you when to stop.

3) The increase in mental capacity and energy level.

4) You never look at fat the way you used to look at it.

I don't worry about oily or fatty food these days. However, there was still a problem, which I will share later.

I drink at least once a day with my coffee with butter. If at home, I will use aeropress to make my bulletproof coffee. Mix with grass fed butter from Anchor and coconut oil. If not, I will request long black with butter from the cafe to have my "Bulletproof" coffee.

Because of this coffee habit, I started to lose a lot of fats with little change in weight. I did lose a bit of weight but I started to lose fat. My cloth size started to shrink and this is a good news. I started to wear pants that were made to measure 5 or 6 years ago. Amazing...

Shall end here. Will share the next change.

2nd Change: Coconut Oil Pulling in the morning

After taking coconut oil before sleep, the next thing that I did was coconut oil pulling. Something that my colleague mentioned to me. I thought to myself, hey why not give it a try?

I read online on the many benefits of coconut oil pulling. Basically, just have some coconut oil in your mouth first thing in the morning. And before doing that, have a cup of water. I always do that in the morning. Drinking water first thing in the morning helps to activate the organs.

So why do I want to do it? One of the benefits stated that it will help to grow back the gums. To me, that is wonderful. Hence, I started to do it daily and miracle happened. A bit of gum start to grow back. And when I first started the pulling, I kept on having phlegm coming out from my throat. I don't know why.

Then came one day, it stopped. And since then, I believe coconut oil pulling helps to improve my health.

Will share the next change. It is my journey with Bulletproof coffee.

BTW, when you do coconut pulling, you don't need to use toothpaste to brush your teeth. Just brush it with the coconut oil on your teeth. It feels clean.

1st Change: Coconut oil before sleep

How should I start??? It's been a wonderful journey for the past few months since I started on my weight management journey with the Bulletproof diet. In fact, everything was pretty coincidence.

I  had been taking coconut oil for a long long time with results but not good enough. My weight always hover around 75kg to 80kg. To some folks, I'm not overweight and seriously, from the outlook, I just look a bit round not fat at all. However, it does have some issues. My breathing wasn't smooth or to certain extent, you don't feel regulated when you breath. Secondly, the constant urge to buy new clothes due to new waistline. It can be quite frustrating. My father has diabetes and high blood pressure, that means there is a chance I may get it too since I'm the eldest in the family.

Everything change when my friend introduced me to bulletproof. Initially, I took it with a pinch of salt. I mean we all had read about Atkins (high fat high protein almost zero carb) and others. So how the heck this one will work? I was still taking my coconut oil in the morning.

The 1st Change:

The first change from Bulletproof. I read about taking coconut oil before sleep helps. You will have read somewhere that taking coconut oil before sleep is like taking coffee before sleep. You are not going to sleep. I took the leap of faith and I slept well.
Point 1:Fill up with fat at dinner. I didn't fill up fat at dinner. I fill up fat before sleep.

When I woke up next morning, I felt good. Really good. But there was a side effect. I was hungry. Very hungry. For the entire day, I just ate and ate. I couldn't control my hunger. It just went on and on for the next few days. And then something happened. My tummy shrunk a little bit when I was eating the whole day.

Stay tune for the next post.
