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 abo...

The Bulletproof Diet: Lose up to a Pound a Day, Reclaim Energy and Focus, Upgrade Your Life Reviews
I must say that this is the most thorough and powerful diet book I have read so far.
You'll learn the basic science behind boosting your mental performance while losing weight, staying young, and extending your life span.
If there is one health/diet book you want to read, read this one. It'll change your life. I've already lost 5+ pounds easily in the past week following this diet about 85% of the time.
I seemed to be spotting lots of claims but either no or poor evidence to support them. It shows an inadequate understanding of evidence by an author and reader when correlation between two or more factors is held as causation as is frequently done in this book.
I have abandoned this book, some readers might find it helpful but I am not convinced by Asprey's claims. The book starts well and held my attention but soon its general lack of evidence irritated me. I have no doubt that Asprey is an inte ...more
I specifically waited until after following this diet properly for two weeks before writing this review. I feel pretty good generally but it was tiring cooking two meals a day for two weeks when I normally don't cook at all. There were also times where I didn't feel so amazing because my body was adjusting to a very different approach to eating.
I'll try my best to review just the book, but I wanted to talk about aspects of the diet as well. Overall, I like the idea of what Dave is selling but pu ...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.
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 Dave suggests – as a tool for intermittent fasting.
That said, the book reads at times like an infomercial and I found myself cringing with embarrassment. Also, there is a lot of paranoia about mycotoxins, which I b ...more
Since I followed the diet for a month, I thought I'd come back and revise my original review (in its entirety below)...as well as my rating (downgraded from a 4 to a 3). The diet is NOT the easiest, nor most palatable I've ever been on - one gets tired of a greasy mouth feel to almost everything ON the diet. That's the bad news... the GOOD is that I did lose a total of 12 lbs in 4 weeks - not bad. However, it ISN'T a diet I can realistically stay on until I lose all the weight I'd like to - so a ...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
No matter how much I tried to silence it much of the nutritional advice given in this book made my psyche scream, "NO!". If I wouldn't have already been reading research supporting the amazing health benefits of grassfed butter and beef I probably wouldn't even have tried the diet. Disclaimer: I'm not drinking the bulletproof coffee but have introduced 2tbsp (sometimes more) grassfed butter into my breakfast and on my vegetables throughout the day and am eating more grassfed beef and other healt ...more
