About this ebook

In his mid-twenties, 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.

If you try the diet, stick with it, it's not hard and improvements are slowish, but WAAAY beyond loosing weight. I actually haven't lost any weight, but I'm skinnier and need a lot less sleep. So excited to keep pushing it further!

I finished reading the book only because I paid for it, but I wouldn't recommend it. The book is well written for those who want to follow this specific diet, but it didn't teach me anything I didn't already know as far as general healthy living. I did get bored half way through, because the information it does provide I did not find useful. If you're looking for information about nutritional benefits and advice, there are other wonderful books out there. Good luck to everyone on their healthy and fitness journey! 🙏❤
