Tina’s Dairy-Free Bulletproof Coffee and Leaning Out

Tina’s Dairy-Free Bulletproof Coffee and Leaning Out

I do not do well with dairy no matter how much I love that creamy taste, but I do well with a certified ghee, guaranteed to be free of all casein and lactose.

I love the WHOLE Bulletproof Coffee idea yet I still favor my version of the Bulletproof recipe without the ghee or grass-fed butter. You can read all about how I make my recipe and give it a try if you’d like. This is definitely helpful in my leaning out and how I can accomplish getting lean when I slip up… good to know if you’re trying to lose weight.

I generally drink one cup a day. Sometimes I may drink a second if it is early enough and if I have really worked out a bit to get some more of that good oil fast and furiously into my system. I love fat!

Someone wrote in asking what I do to “lean out”, so here it is in all its glory:

I generally wake after 9 hours sleep. I have had sleep troubles now and then but not a big deal if I stay off the computer at night and calm things down in my life. As I love what I do, I feel sleep is a total waste of time!

I move around a bit and do little odds and ends and then eventually make my own recipe version of Bulletproof coffee. I do sometimes need to reheat it after I do the high-speed blender as I like it hot!

Some days I will eat an egg or an egg and some cilantro or an egg and half a piece of Julian’s Paleo bread (coconut only – I do not like the almond). I eat a half as that is about all I can handle as they are pretty dry and I eat it only for a tad of texture, or I will have a Paleo muffin I’ve made.

I usually add my Omega 3 oils on top of the bread to soak it up.

I then head out soon after that to do weights (upper or lower, meaning arms and back or the thighs, butt and legs) or I go for a hike.

Leaning Out 1

I love to “move” my body – luckily!

Before I hit the gym or hills I always: drink a good tablespoon of L-Carnitine, a teaspoon of BCAA+G and a small scoop of D-Ribose. You can read why I use these, because the difference before and after I added them has been major!

Right after the workout or hike I do the direct above steps (L-Carnitine, BCAA+G and D–Ribose) again to help my recovery and will sometimes add a teaspoon of Pure Collagen.

Shortly after, I have a satisfying meal with protein and veggies.

As the day and evening move on, I’m usually a bit more attentive to keeping the fruits and carbs lower if I have slipped into the flabby and mushy syndrome a bit too much. If not, I eat what I want yet I prefer to have less sugars and carbs in the system overall. I feel more stable and have terrific energy with a more fat burning body versus my previous mostly carb burning body. I do not ever attempt a keto diet or a no carb diet.

I drink lots of water and fill a GLASS jug with H20 two times a day if I am good.

Leaning Out 2

I hold my core when I sit and walk – no situps!

I do and feel much better when I keep my exercise in and will never be one to say that I am naturally lean and fit and never have to work at it. That would be a lie.

I do have to work at it and that is just a fact I have come to know and respect.
