In his midtwenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire. He also weighed 300 pounds, despite the fact that he was doing what doctors recommended: eating 1,800 calories a day and working out 90 minutes a day, six times a week. When his excess fat started causing brain fog and food cravings sapped his energy and willpower, Asprey turned to the same hacking techniques that made his fortune to "hack" his own biology, investing more than $300,000 and 15 years to uncover what was hindering his energy, performance, appearance, and happiness. From private brain EEG facilities to remote monasteries in Tibet, through radioactive brain scans, blood chemistry work, nervous system testing, and more, he explored traditional and alternative technologies to reach his physical and mental prime. The result? The Bulletproof Diet, an anti-inflammatory program for hunger-free, rapid weight loss and peak performance. The Bulletproof Diet will challengeand changethe way you think about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat high levels of healthy saturated fat, work out and sleep less, and add smart supplements.In doing so, you'll gain energy, build lean muscle, and watch the pounds melt off. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey went from being overweight and sick in his twenties to maintaining a 100-pound weight loss, increasing his IQ, and feeling better than ever in his forties. The Bulletproof Diet is your blueprint to a better life....

The Bulletproof Diet: Lose up to a Pound a Day, Reclaim Energy and Focus, Upgrade Your Life Reviews
I didn't read this because I wanted to loose weight. Rather, I love reading about food/nutrition, I had heard of Asprey and Bulletproof Coffee, and I had started doing it in the morning and really enjoying it for a week or so. So, I decided to officially read the book. I think it is unfortunate to call this a 'diet' book. It is more a revolutionary nutrition book, with some practicalities about what to do.
As a background, Asprey was a Silicon Valley multimillionaire who was way overweight. He tr ...more
There are always naysayers. I also think it's a bad idea to skip breakfast. Being vegetarian twice in my life, I had to stop both times. Why? Deep depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, and my skin looked old and crappy. Back on animal protein and a high good fat diet and I feel great again. AND... I lost quite a bit of weight, no inflammation and no puffiness.
For vegans, sorry. Every vegan I know starts to look super unhealthy after some time. Even Pres Clinton's doc told him he needed ...more
My wife and I were interested in this to see if we could learn anything to augment the mostly primal/paleo way we've been eating the last few years. We picked up a few great ideas (mainly realizing we may have been eating too much protein and not enough saturated fat), but were mostly left disappointed.
Dave Asprey is reaching very hard to brand every salable aspect of his lifestyle while simultaneously avoiding identifying it with the paleo/ancestral movements. He's not paleo, he's a "biohacker. ...more
I’ve never been interested in health. I’ve tried a couple of fad diets in order to shed pounds quickly (often too quickly) and I’ve exercised myself into health problems on more than one occasion (particularly memorable was the ankle problem related to jogging and the heart symptoms related to cardio workouts). So, when a friend insisted that he was concerned about me and recommended this book, I was skeptical but purchased the book out of respect for the friend. The Bulletproof Diet isn’t so mu ...more
Dave delivers again
I have been listening to the bulletproof radio podcast since 2012. Since I started just basic changes that year I saw a huge difference in my athletic performance. I took this all the way to triathlon and full ironman distance with great results. I am now not training at all and maintaining my weight and lean mass (I actually look better than when just was exercising 10hrs a week) and excelling mentally since the past few weeks I have integrated bulletproof intermittent fastin ...more
In many ways he is the George Foreman of the coffee drinking world. He sells coffee and sells it well, he's come up with one idea and is so proud of it he's put his brand on it. in every paragraph.
The guy is a hack, a used car salesman. This book is an overloaded with broscience, celebrity endorsements and bulletproof branding, with little or no empirical data to back up its claims. He is selling the bulletproof brand and the dream of an upgraded lifestyle which can be obtained through his butte ...more
Dave Asprey is a former high-tech entrepreneur turned biohacker and the creator of Bulltetproof coffee and the Bulletproof brand. He has a popular podcast, Bulletproof Radio, which I listen to regularly. This book summarizes a lot of his philosophy in biohacking and how lifestyle, especially diet can affect how you can improve how you feel, your physical and mental performance and overall health.
Overall, there are many excellent tips and advice on diet and lifestyle that promise to lead to heal ...more
Um livro pra te fazer repensar a forma como você se alimenta. Parece radical e faz você ficar meio paranoico com os alimentos. As referências citadas dão credibilidade à teoria e não custa tentar para ver os resultados. Já estou colhendo alguns.
