Bulletproof Coffee

Now that nursing school is completed the last major test I have to take is my state nursing board exam – the dreaded NCLEX! Although I graduated with honors I still feel like an idiot – like I can’t even remember even the basics let alone the massive pharmacological data that is supposed to be imbedded somewhere in my brain. (What do these little white pills do again?) The past three years of late nights spent cramming for tests and stressing over volumes of data simply fried my brain. So when someone told me about the mind enhancing effects of Bulletproof Coffee, I just had to give it a try! I decided to drink this upgraded coffee for the next 30 days and see if it enhances my focus and retention abilities as I prepare for the biggest test of my life.

So far day one has been spent figuring out how much coffee I need to grind up. I use a Keurig so I have to fill the little K-cups with freshly ground coffee. It appears that two measured tablespoons of Bulletproof beans will fill one K-cup after grinding. I am still playing with the grinder to see which texture is better. Now I’m off to immerse myself in pharmacology and see what sticks in the morning. Wish me luck!

    Day 5 update: I finally masted getting the perfect ground texture and amount to fill one K-cup each morning. For the purposes of this test I am limiting myself to one cup of bulletproof coffee a day. I have noticed three recordable results so far after five days. 1st – this coffee is simply distinctively delicious. 2nd – from day one I am having trouble sleeping at night. Even with only using 1 K-cup to make 12 ounces of black gold in the morning I am still up and full of energy at night and have to force myself to go to sleep. 3rd – the most significant result so far was that I was up until 3:30 am on day four. I slept for an hour and then got up and had my 12 ounces of bulletproof at 4:30 AM as usual. At 5:00 I was wide awake and raring to go with more energy than I have had in a long time! Wow! I wish I would have stumbled on this stuff while I was still in school… Now, I am not advocating staying up 20+ hours a day but I am saying I can definitely attribute my extended hours of wakefulness to this coffee, as I have changed nothing else in my diet at this point. Next week I will work on using up more of this energy during the day and hopefully be able to sleep earlier in the night.

    Day 12 update: So far the test is going better than expected. Just ordered another bag of coffee in fact. The biggest difference I see still is the “Awake” feeling that I am walking around with all day, even past midnight! – which was not the goal. I am having to take Ambien to go to sleep before midnight the past few nights and still I wake up wide-eyed and bushy-tailed at 4:30 AM. I have gotten more done before 9:00 AM this past week than I think I have ever done in the past. So far so good with this black gold. 18 days left to go…

    Well, with one week to go I have to call this test a success. The biggest thing I have noticed is that I never seem to want to go to sleep. I literally have to force myself to go lay in bed and hope for sleep to come. The other thing that I didn’t expect was the weight loss. I am down 4 more pounds and I just put on a shirt that I hadn’t been able to fit into in five years! (Yes, it is probably out of style.) The interesting part of this experiment is that I have only worked out a few times during the past month and actually have been eating a little more than usual. I can’t wait to share the final results next week. I have already ordered my next month’s supply of upgraded coffee.
