Ready to join us in November's challenge? We've now split the podcast so you can listen in if you're interested in taking part in our experiments, allowing us to focus solely on each experiment in their own podcasts. In this quick intro episode we go through the 7 benefits of taking a cold shower every day, and then go over exactly how long we'll do it.

For those without a desire to listen, but a desire to take part:

  • Nov 1-7: 30 seconds
  • Nov 8-14: 60 seconds
  • Nov 15-21: 120 seconds
  • Nov 22-28: 240 seconds

Bulletproof Coffee - September 2017

November 2, 2017

Our second experiment was consuming Bulletproof Coffee every day for a month. What's Bulletproof Coffee? We made a regular coffee, then blended in grass-fed butter and XCT oil or Brain Octane Oil. Coming in at approximately 400 calories it's meant to assist in pushing you into fat-burning ketosis and improve mental clarity and focus. The experiment? Would we notice this increased clarity and focus?

Some of the topics discussed:

  • How important is a blender vs. a frother vs. a spoon?
  • Do you really need to buy Brain Octane Oil?
  • Can you use regular or store-bought organic coffee?
  • What's the one major side effect of too much oil?
  • Could Bulletproof Coffee work alongside intermittent fasting?

In the end, each of them decide if Bulletproof Coffee is now part of their lifestyle, and introduce what they'll be doing next month.

Intermittent Fasting - August 2017

November 2, 2017

For their first official experiment of the Paul Project, Rick and Alexander embark on 31 days of intermittent fasting. The two were only able to eat food between the hours of 12pm and 8pm daily for the month, with minor liquids allowed in their off-hours. The experiment? Without otherwise altering diet would they experience weight loss or lose any inches around the mid-section?

Some of the topics discussed:

  • The major issue each met by not making changes to their meal sizes
  • The effect the experiment had on IBS issues
  • How intermittent fasting impacts a keto (Alexander) and Paleo (Rick) lifestyle
  • Results, if any, on athletic performance
  • Why Alexander and Rick were sending frantic WhatsApps at 11pm on a Saturday
  • In the end, each of them decide if intermittent fasting is now part of their lifestyle, and introduce what they'll be doing next month.
