Now Testing The Bulletproof Diet
I've been drinking bulletproof coffee for about 5 years now (it's the bee's knees), but I've yet to go full on bulletproof diet.
My diet typically aligns with a paleo-like guideline, (i.e. whole lotta veggies, grass-fed meats, wild seafood, pasture-raised eggs, no grains, no sugar) but with the occasional Tim-Ferriss-style cheat meal (aka gelato man life). This has worked well for my lifestyle, but recently I've felt like I've been run over by an oscar myer wienermobile. (🌭)
Turns out I've had exposure to mold in my apartment since the winter (😱)
My symptoms of Mold Poisoning (3+ months of)
- Constant Fatigue, zero energy.
- Weakness is a strong word, but I don't feel as strong and vibrant as I should be.
- Can't catch my breath
- Sinus congestion (I haven't had allergies in decades)
- Aches and slight sensitivity to light
Aka I'm a hot mess.

We don't realize how much health and our external environment affects us until we're broadsided by it.
This is unacceptable to me.
My dreams are too big for me to constantly have no drive and energy.
I've got empires to build.
Luckily, The Bulletproof Diet is tailored around mold prevention, energy and mental performance.
This isn't an endorsement per se, (well except for the coffee!), this is a test.
I'm going to start with going bulletproof for one month, (recording my energy levels periodically throughout the day as I go) and then see what's what afterward.
I'll be adding updates on my progress as I go (what I'm doing, why and how), so be sure to check in to the Now Testing blog series.
