#BETHEPROOF: How Former Bachelor Pilot Pete Weber Powers His Days
Bulletproof has been a great asset to me on my quest for reaching my top potential. I made the cross-country move to New York to start a new chapter this year, which has affected many aspects of my life—in a great way!
Bulletproof has helped me both mentally and physically, and this is just the beginning for me…
Everyone needs a trusty fuel source to power up in the morning. Personally, I start my day by adding Bulletproof Brain Octane C8 MCT Oil to my coffee. It’s incredible, the mental clarity I notice as soon as I add this high-quality fuel source and take the first sip. I become so focused and motivated to complete whatever task it is I have for the day.
I promise, this stuff is a gamechanger.
And, while I’m not the biggest cook, one thing I do make almost every day is a couple of eggs sunny-side up, which helps me hit my protein and fat macros (along with accessing important omega-3s). Plus, I always use my Bulletproof Grass-Fed Ghee as a pan-spray replacement, and I know I’m getting an even more excellent source of quality fat because of it!
Unfortunately, people hear the word ‘fat’ and think they need to stay away from it with the food they eat. There are so many science-backed, nourishing fats out there that can be so important for you, and I encourage people to do their research to find what works for them.
I absolutely love MCT oil, ghee, avocados and almonds, which make regular cameos in my diet!
Collagen, all day!
While acclimating to my new life in the Big Apple, Bulletproof on-the-go products have become a major convenience factor. Living in the city, there is always something going on, and being able to grab a Bulletproof Collagen Protein Bar before a flag football game or a Bulletproof Cold Brew Latte for a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon has been very helpful.
I’ve been staying pretty active here in New York, from walking everywhere, to taking my dog Tripp to Central Park to joining multiple sports leagues.
However, while Bulletproof grab-and-go collagen products support my day-to-day, my physical recovery is equally important. I’ve found success (and relief) by adding Bulletproof Chocolate Collagen Protein to my daily shakes to help keep my joints fresh and provide the building blocks to develop more muscle. (Score!)
Life in the fast lane
On top of fueling with fats and recovering with collagen, I’ve been extremely dedicated to my intermittent fasting practice. In fact, I strive for 20-hour fasts, six days a week. The biggest thing I’ve noticed has been my overall sense of well-being.
Once I’m past the 12-hour mark, it’s incredible how much energy I get when my body isn’t busy working to process incoming food. Additionally, my mental clarity has spiked quite a bit; I feel way more productive in the gym and I’ve lost a good amount of weight getting me closer to my goal.
And, because fasting helps me enter the state of ketosis naturally, I also like to track if I’m in ketosis, so I check my blood sugar and ketones with a little finger-pricker every couple of days. Hands down, intermittent fasting has been an integral part of me achieving a state of ketosis—and staying there!
Pilot Pete’s Bulletproof tip: When I break my fast, if I’m not sipping on my fat-infused Bulletproof Coffee concoction, I grab a Dark Chocolate Cold Brew Latte from the fridge, which provides a great boost of energy and isn’t too heavy. Plus, it helps me avoid an upset stomach as I reintroduce food into my body for the first time of the day!
New goals, who dis?
My dietary goal for 2021 is to achieve 8% body fat at about 185 pounds. I’m 6-foot-three-inches, so I feel like that’s an ideal, lean size for me to be, while allowing me to feel my best and stay extremely active—especially as I head into my 30s in August!
I started my journey earlier this year at 213 pounds, and am down to 195 now, thanks to my diet and exercise practices. I feel like a different person, and I’m excited to keep the momentum going, thanks to the incredible Bulletproof tools I’ve discovered along the way!
