DAVE ASPREY | Biohacking & Bulletproofing Life

Do I have a big name for you guys on this episode, "Biohacking & Bulletproofing Life To Achieve Personal & Financial Wealth", of the Millionaire Secrets podcast today…
It’s Dave Asprey.
Founder of the world-renowned Bulletproof Coffee and the biohacking movement.
On today’s show, we get straight into what you might expect…
More specifically, we talk about the importance of biohacking for peak performance among digital marketers and entrepreneurs in general.
What is biohacking?
In the words of Dave himself,
Biohacking is the art and science of changing the environment around you and inside you, so you have more control over your own biology.
In his mid-to-late twenties, Dave weighed 300lbs.
Low energy and brain fog were significantly disturbing his ability to perform his role as an entrepreneur effectively.
An hour and a half in the gym each day and a strict diet just wasn’t helping him drop the weight. Doctors didn’t believe him when he said he was eating right.
It felt like no traditional methods of weight loss & healthy lifestyle could help him...
So Dave took it upon himself to hack a new way of living that would improve his overall quality of life...and hopefully….longevity.
Biohacking was born.

I love Jeff's Interviews. I have never been able to make as much money as he has in such a short period of time! His interviews are very interesting and easy to follow, which is what makes his podcast so successful. He talks about different topics that everyone can relate to and provides information that students need in order for them to succeed at school or college. I am also impressed with how Jeff conducts himself when conducting an interview; it shows the character of someone who truly cares about helping others achieve their goals no matter how difficult they may be.
Wow!! I can see why Jeff was so excited! I’m getting into this entrepreneur stuff late in life, and lack of energy can be a real problem! I can’t wait to learn more about biohacking to improve my energy. Thanks, guys!!

The Bulletproof Diet: Lose up to a Pound a Day, Reclaim Energy and Focus, Upgrade Your Life Hardcover – Illustrated, December 2, 2014

4.3 out of 5 stars
NEW YORK Times Best Seller * "In the high-stakes arena of top performance both in the locker room and boardroom Bulletproof Dietdelivers Bulletproof Dietdelivers ."--Dr. Jeff "Cornerman" Spencer, Tour de France performance coach and the creator of the Champion's Blueprint
In his early twenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire. He also weighed in at 300 pounds despite the fact that his doctors advised eating 1,800 calories per day and exercising for 90 minutes per week, six times a week.
As his fat build-up began creating headaches and brain fog, which reduced his willpower and energy, Asprey turned to the hacking methods that made an enviable fortune. He used these techniques to "hack" his own biology and invest more than 300,000 dollars and 15 years to find out the root of his issues with performance, energy appearance, and overall happiness. Through private EEG equipment to monasteries that are located in remote Tibet as well as brain scans with radioactive radiation as well as blood chemistry testing as well as testing for the nervous system and many more, he delved into alternatives and traditional methods to achieve his peak physical and mental performance. The result? "The Bulletproof Diet" An anti-inflammatory diet to help you feel fuller, faster weight loss and maximum performance.
The Bulletproof Diet will challenge--and transform the ways you think about losing weight and overall health. You'll not eat breakfast, stop counting calories, consume a high amount of healthy saturated fats, exercise and rest less and also take advantage of intelligent supplements.
When you do this you'll increase your energy levels and build muscle and see the weight melt off. In a way, by letting go of traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey was able to go from being obese and sick in his twenties , to being able to maintain a weight loss of 100 pounds and boosting his IQ and feeling healthier than ever in his 40s. Bulletproof Diet Bulletproof Diet is your guide to living a healthier life.
The incredible lightness of being Bulletproof
Reviewed in the United States on May 17, 2015
Being a "biohacker" for decades before ever even hearing that term, I must say the Bulletproof Diet is full of useful information. In fact, using years of dieting trial and error, I came up with my own diet a few years ago that could best be described as a flextarian, lower-fat Bulletproof Diet (combined with a copious amount of walking). In January of 2014, I joined MyFitnessPal. By December 31st of 2014, I had lost 65 pounds. I can personally say that doing this works, even without the extra fat. However, in mid-December of 2014, I purchased and downloaded the Bulletproof Diet audiobook. I decided not to just listen to the book, but to put it to the test. Since I have logged fairly accurately on MFP for well over a year, I will share my experience with higher levels of fat, which honestly did seem counter-intuitive to me.
First, I added grassfed-butter, Bulletproof coffee to my diet almost immediately, drinking it twice a day (using off-the-shelf decaf *gasp*). I also upped the amount of avocado I was eating, and started eating unsweetened, organic coconut twice a day. I also added some coconut/almond butter to my diet and cooking with coconut oil, and since I have been working out more, I'm experimenting with some grass-fed whey protein. By January of 2015, I had more than doubled the amount of fat I was eating. In fact, these items alone added an extra 500 - 600 calories a day to my diet.
With the addition of the extra calories, I fully expected to stop losing weight or even gain a little muscle weight, as I swapped from cardio exercise to more strength training (paleo style). However, from January of 2015 to April 2015, I lost another 7 pounds, for a total of 72 pounds since joining MFP.
What I did gain was much easier appetite control, a wonderful addition of new flavors, and with some tweaks to the diet, some problems I have had since being a teenager are now healing.
With decades of yo-yo weight gain and loss, as I bounced between a somewhat healthy diet and slid back on to the SAD diet (Standard American Diet), I think what I'm doing now will be the one that works for me for the rest of my life. At the age of 46 I'm now a certified yoga instructor, I'm doing easy 9 - 10 minute miles, and consistent 32 minute 5k runs. You know, that all may not sound like much, but it was just a couple of years ago that I looked and felt like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
Here are the Bulletproof Diet pros:
* Extra fat does indeed satiate appetite and gives you more control over hunger.
* Dave Asprey is one of the few people that understands the dangers of too much protein.
* Dave Asprey also gets the dangers of vitamin supplementation (or at least approaches it in a more intelligent way).
Here are the Bulletproof Diet cons:
* The way he pushes his Bulletproof Coffee sounds like a used car salesman in action.
* Dave maintains the diet will change your gut bacteria. Bulletproof alone was not enough for me.
* I'm really undecided on some of his information about natural toxins/anti-nutrients in food.
* Legumes are actually a common item eaten among centenarians. Come on Dave, don't over think it.
* The recipe PDF with the audiobook is really heavy on the meat, which contradicts information in his own book.
* I think on some level, calories do still matter, even though I totally get the gut bacteria connection.
I'm going to say that I think Dave is a genius. That said, there are just a few things that concern me. I really like the way he judges foods by the way they make him feel and/or mental clarity. However, some anti-nutrients do stress your body, and at times this can be beneficial to your health. Go to a popular search engine and look up a wonderful article by Moises Velasquez-Manoff, called "Fruits and Vegetables Are Trying to Kill You, Antioxidant vitamins don’t stress us like plants do—and don’t have their beneficial effect."
While Dave is one of the few people who get the dangers of too much protein, his website takes pot shots at The China Study, which really has a lot of great information in it, especially about protein. In fact, they do eat rice in China and by in large, they are healthier than Americans. But if you can get past the rice, a lot of classic Chinese dishes are Bulletproof. A big pile of vegetables with a little meat thrown in for just the right amount of protein is about as Bulletproof as you can get.
When I designed my diet, I approached it with the knowledge that (less-healthy) Americans eat way more meat than large portions of the (healthier), less-developed world, combined with the fact that I think the paleo people out there also score a lot of points for their information about grains. So I tried to combine the two and come up with a vegetable heavy, lower protein diet that was healthier than the basic paleo diets, which kind of lean toward bacon, wrapped in bacon, and served on a side of steak with a slab of butter on it for good measure. So in that respect, I do think it is unfortunate that Dave's own recipe PDF seems to contradict information from his book.
Keep in mind, in the study of the !Kung San (a San people living in the Kalahari Desert in Namibia, Botswana and in Angola, and who genetically trace back to the beginnings of modern humans) anthropologist Richard Borshay Lee found these hunter-gatherers to get some 60 to 70 percent of their food from plants they gather, and 30 to 40 percent from meat obtained by hunting.
Indeed, an honest look at healthy populations all over the world will find a similar pattern of eating. As Dr. Dave Perlmutter M.D., pointed out in his book, Brain Maker, "Far too often people think a low-carb diet is all about eating copious amounts of meat and other sources of protein. On the contrary, an ideal plate in the Brain Maker protocol is a sizable portion of vegetables (two-thirds of your plate) and about 3 to 4 ounces of protein. Meat and animal products should be a side dish, not a main course." (Amazingly, that sounds a lot like diets in Asian countries).
And finally, Dave maintains that if you eat the Bulletproof Diet, your gut bacteria will change to good bacteria without the use of probiotics. With all the list of benefits that I can attribute to going Bulletproof, having battled with eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, and/or fungal/candida symptoms for a large portion of my life, it was only when I tweaked the Bulletproof Diet to include the Skinny Gut Diet, did I start to get relief from these issues. I highly recommend, "The Skinny Gut Diet: Balance Your Digestive System for Permanent Weight Loss," by Brenda Watson C.N.C. and Leonard Smith M.D.
Basically, The Skinny Gut Diet is Bulletproof, with the addition of fermented foods with every meal and probiotics. In the past, I've put some corporate exec's kids through college buying creams and ointments and probiotics that didn't work. It was only when I combined everything -- diet, exercise, weight loss, healthy fats, and fermented foods/probiotics -- that I finally saw the results I have been looking for my whole life.
I would like to recommend a few books that go very well with Bulletproof:
Go Wild: Free Your Body and Mind from the Afflictions of Civilization, by John J. Ratey and Richard Manning
Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics Is Fueling Our Modern Plagues by Martin J. Blaser
Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life
Great for Quick and Easy Weight Loss! (My simple plan!)
Reviewed in the United States on September 19, 2017
This diet is interesting because it addresses concerns with food toxicity as well as inflammation. Even down to the methods we prepare our food (no more grilling or frying meat!) It also addresses concerns with healing the gut and hormones.
The idea is becoming bulletproof - which is more than just maintaining a good weight. It's about performing at our maximum capacity - ultimate brain power, energy, and sleep causing us to live at our personal maximum.
I wouldn't say that I'm following this diet precisely, and also probably not realizing its potential, because my initial goal was just to lose 20 pounds!
But I can testify it does work well for that purpose!! I lost 7 pounds the first week and about 2 pounds per week since. I'm about 7 weeks in. I'm excited to hit my goal in a month or so. My mom was inspired and started also, with a goal to lose 10. She has lost 6 in the first two weeks and is thrilled.
We're also excited because the diet is so easy (for us) and delicious. Neither of us enjoy cooking much, so we both follow a pretty simple plan. At first I was hungry as my body was asking, "Um, where went the carbs?!" But I adjusted and can easily go now without any rumbly tummy or anything. The fats keep me feeling satisfied.
Bulletproof Coffee for breakfast (DELICIOUS!)
Eating window of 6-8 hours:
Lunch: Salad with meat & generous oil, or veggies/eggs in butter or oil, or dinner leftovers
Dinner: Meat and vegetables with butter / oil, some nights with white rice or sweet potato.
Daily piece of dark chocolate
ETA: I did end up losing 18 pounds in 10 weeks, and that was with some cheating and not following it to the letter of the law. WIN!

As a 59 year old woman with Heart Disease, I highly recommend the Bullet Proof Diet to easily change and save your life
Reviewed in the United States on March 24, 2016
4 years into recovery from Heart Failure and a triple bypass, I was miserable with IBS, Gastro problems, unspecified pectoral pain being treated as Angina, acute sinusitis, adrenal fatigue, on the verge of going on thyroid medication, to name only the major complaints that I had. My room mate started drinking bullet proof coffee and suggested that I listen to Dave Asprey's Book....The Bullet Proof Diet. Audio has always been a better fit for me, but only shortly into the book, I bought the hardcover to follow along and adopted the lifestyle change 10 months ago.
Not only am I 30lbs down never to come back again as I have floundered with every other diet for over 40 years, I have also been off my BP meds for 5 months. The only meds I currently take are a statin which is minimal now, as I have familial cholesterol issues. I am in that 30% that has to take a statin.However, even with high dosages of stains after my bypass I could never get them to healthy ranges. Last week, my cardiologist asked me what I was doing to finally be in exception ranges for LDL/HDL, cholesterol and triglicerides. My thyroid is good and getting better, no adrenal fatigue and I can't remember the last time I had no pain from my chest or gut. I did this all in 10 months with the aid of this program.
Everything started with getting rid of inflammation through my diet and I highly recommend this book to any woman (or man) over 40 that needs to change their health, right now!

You know when you read a book that has testimonials in it, and you think "suuuurre, that might work for a few people." Turns out that this bullet proof thing is the real deal. I started w/ the bulletproof coffee in the opening and intermittent fasting, then started reading the book. By the time I finished the book, I was 16lbs lighter and my body fat went down 6%.
Here's the kicker: I wasn't really trying to lose weight. I wanted to feel healthier and get more done during my waking hours. That happened too.
For immediate results, follow this plan. Changed my life!

Shortly after retiring I fell in love with my soulmate. Six months later he was in chemo for bladder cancer. I was his sole caregiver for two years before he died. During that time and in the year that followed I ballooned out and was constantly hungry no matter how healthy I tried to eat. At one point my belly measured 36" . I felt old, ugly, and exhausted. Dave's diet sounded radical but I had done plenty of biohacking myself. Recognized from a few of his supplement discussions about gene mutations I have (that many physicians still don't know about) that this guy knows his stuff. Have followed it faithfully for two weeks and finally reversed the trend. My belly is rapidly disappearing already. My skin glows. I have energy. I have started slowly on the MCT oil. No problems there. Don't just buy the book and follow the diet. Take the supplements he recommends. I was already on many of them. I buy them on Amazon. It took three days to get through the sugar withdrawal. After that I stopped having cravings. Cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Great book! The only thing that has helped my husband and I lose weight.
Reviewed in the United States on August 26, 2019
I bought this book because I was interested in keto and intermittent fasting for detox purposes. I didn’t really expect to lose weight because nothing else has worked. To my surprise I’ve lost 5 lbs in 3-4 weeks! I’m never hungry and my digestion has been much better. My husband has lost weight even faster (as men often do). He’s lost 15lbs in 3 weeks. The author is a genius! I also have a background in the medical field and he does a great job of explaining the scientific rationale behind his concepts. My only complaint is that his products that he sells on his website are very expensive, but he does tell you what to use otherwise, so you don’t have to purchase through him in order to do the diet.

Once I finally got around to reading this book, I could have kicked myself for putting it off for so long! Just thought I was getting the gist of bulletproofing listening to a podcast or Dave being a guest speaker on an online forum. (And there are so many books to be read!). This first book clarified so many points for me. I’ve been drinking good coffee with great grass fed butter and eating my first and occasionally only meal of the day in the afternoon. I felt wonderful, rid of the stuffy, bloated feeling, more energy, lost pounds safely, slept better; yet reading this book has defined and refined my understanding way beyond my expectations. I will get Dave’s subsequent books and still look forward to his podcasts and guest appearances on health summits. Thank you, Dave!

This book is a MUST READ if you want to understand how to be the best version of yourself. Success really starts from within and having the knowledge of how your body works to metabolism food makes you feel EMPOWERED every time you make a decision about what food you are eating. I have tried every diet under the sun and like Dave, I would always loose some weight and then it would stall and I would give up. This is the first diet that has actually become a lifestyle and I will never go back. Thank you Dave for taking the time to write this book because it has truly changed my life. I am free from cravings, energy crashes and the feeling of being HANGRY which gives me so much more energy to focus on the things I love. Also... listen to his podcast "bulletproof radio" you will NOT be disappointed!

He's a recent pioneer in really publicizing the benefits of a keto diet and in understanding metabolic processes in the body. So many medical doctors have no understanding of nutrition and the basic fuel process for a human body. Yes, he's made a little cottage industry from his research and work, but that doesn't mean he's not knowledgable, sincere, and willing to adapt as this field matures. Basically, we are on our own, and people best be educated and trained in how to live, eat and exercise. The path is not the same for all, but this is a good place to start. Only wish the headline of book didn't emphasize strictly weight loss. It's really not about that. Do the right things for your body and appropriate weight loss or gain will follow.

I've been on the health/diet book journey for a few years now, reading every single book I could get my hands on. I attempted a fat free vegan diet for 4 months and was eating constantly. I did loose weight very slowly and no amount of potatoes or beans made me feel full for any substantial period of time. I've eaten Paleo many times in the past but have to try hard to calorie restrict and bust my butt at the gym in order to loose weight. Bulletproof, however, is completely it for me. I lost 8 pounds in a week on this diet and I feel amazing. I am eating the foods my body wants with loads of veggies, a little protien, and a good amount of quality fat, and my cravings for junk are nonexistent. I implemented the intermittent fasting and only eat between 3-8pm and I can spend less time constantly in the kitchen. Bulletproof coffee gives me the energy I need and the quality fats keep me satiated. I no longer feel ravenously hungry or get hangry headaches. My hunger is more dull and less urgent allowing me to wait until I get home to eat where I make better choices. I am completely thrilled that this book was near the recent end of my health book journey because I realize Dave combines the best parts of them all. The Bulletproof diet matches me perfectly. I feel complete.

because you feel full and satisfied due to the body hacks contained in this book
Reviewed in the United States on August 14, 2017
Finally a diet that is possible to follow and maintain. I have been following this for about 6 months now and it has not been difficult. You don't want to eat that much, because you feel full and satisfied due to the body hacks contained in this book. I have not stuck to it 100% and cheat when I feel like it, which is about twice a week but still I see results.
The major benefit I believe is that because you feel good, you don't need to resort to food to make you feel satisfied. This is what makes this diet unique - it works on the brain and then the body comes naturally, after that.

I am dealing with an autoimmune disease and Dave's books are filled with so much usable information that really helps me take charge of my health. Even after listening to many podcasts with him, I find it helpful to have the information at my fingertips.
