B U L L E T • P R O O F
A few weeks back, I told you all that I would share a bit about my bullet proof experience! I just completed my first 30 days and I haven’t looked back! Bullet proof is a high fat coffee made with brain octane, grass fed butter and we chose to put XCT oil in as well.
The diet encourages a high protein diet with “good” carbs + select fruit consumed in the evening. Grass fed and all organic is a huge plus. The other portion of the diet, I found a little more difficult, was the intermittent fasting. The idea is to fast 18 hours from your last meal. So if you last ate at 7 pm, you wouldn’t eat again until 1 pm in the afternoon the next day. I would say that I stuck to the bullet proof way of living 85% of the time over the past 30 days. The best part about this “diet” is that if I veered off one day I wouldn’t feel ruined for an entire week afterwards. There are a few more layers to the diet that I have not yet dove into yet, but if you’re interested in learning more or getting started on the bullet proof diet, read here.
• Mental Clarity
• 5 pound weight loss
• More energy
• Increased ability to concentrate
• Cravings for sugar have decreased significantly
• Bloat is GONE (especially around my menstrual cycle, I typically look 5 months pregnant
I plan on giving a 60 day update because to be quite honest with you, I tend to try things for short periods of time (good experiences included) and I’m really trying hard to make this a part of my lifestyle. Consistency is very key in reaching any goal and if I’m going to be even more honest, since moving to CA 3 years ago, I gained about 20 pounds so I’m trying to pull that off in the process! 15 pounds away from goal now!! I went to Texas last week for a few days and I felt the difference not having Bullet Proof Coffee. I look forward to that cup of super power-packed energy in the morning!
Ladies, this dress!! I’m obsessed with green lately. I have no idea why but I just decided to branch out a little more with this color! I love how vibrant it is and how good it contrasts with my skin. Sometimes I like I need to go outside the box a little and have fun! But, yea this dress is a new fave and it was the best decision as far as an addition to my Fall wardrobe! Also, can we talk about this bag?!?! Bucket bag dreams! The wooden detail and the straps have me swooning!!! My shoes are from the Zara sale this summer! Lastly, Daniel Wellington just released cuffs that are the PERFECT match for your watch. The are the most beautiful metallic silver, as you can see! Use code RUTHIE15 for 15% off any cuff at Daniel Wellington, now through December 30th!! I think that is it for now, friends!! As always, thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
