The Bulletproof Diet
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 challenge—and change—the 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.

    Don't know where I heard about this book--probably Goodreads. It took a while to get it from the library because there were a number of holds, but once I got it I couldn't read it. Although the diet proposed is very different, this book reminded me of Fit for Life by Harvey Diamond. Th...

    'Biohacking' is a word that conjures up something very technologically advanced and only reserved for geeks. This is not true. I am glad I read through the entire book. There is much wisdom to be found in this book, not to mention that my grocery bills will go down because I will cut s...

    I didn't rad this for the writing, which gets 3 stars, but for the ideas. I'm convinced enough to give it a try. I'm pretty close to eating this way already so it shouldn't much of an adjustment. I'm going to go,order some K-cups of upgraded coffee. We'll see if a month or so of I'm ad...

    Five-star reviews are reserved for books that are a life-changing, paradigm-shattering force to be reckoned with that I'm compelled to force on everyone I know. The Bulletproof Diet delivers on all counts. I started this book while in bed with terrible back pain because if pain is the ...

    I owe a debt of gratitude to Dave Asprey as I learned the bulk of what I know about the paleo diet from listening to his podcast. The man has done his homework for sure and is a wealth of information. Further, I am a huge fan of bulletproof coffee (absolutely yum!) and use it just as D...

    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 he...
