The best thing for detox is coffee enemas (you can find plenty of sites that explain how to DIY by googling). Just make sure to use organic coffee.

SOUNDS DELICIOUS! I have some hazelnut oil that I may need to try that with! As far as safety, yeah, you are fine. Walnut oil is good up to about 400 degrees or so. Hot coffee is no problem.

It's awesome. I do bulletproof tea more often than coffee. Typically some fresh yerba mate through a french press, then 1-2 tbl spoons of butter. If I'm feeling it, I'll add coco milk or mct oil, and perhaps a square of dark chocolate or some... (more)

It's a trade off. If you can do more reps you can cause more muscle damage, so that means more repairs later on, bigger muscles. If you work out fasted, you deplete glycogen faster, and kick start autophagy, clean out the junk proteins in your... (more)

Keep in mind Dave Asprey is a salesman not a clinician. That said if you are on a ketogenic or near-ketogenic diet, like Asprey suggests, Omega 6 aren't quite the issues they are with higher-carb diets.

Coconut butter, in jar or in tetra packs (totally solid), so A. O.K with security natzis. Also makes a delicious coffee (like a latte) or frappe'. Enjoy!!
