The Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey

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, investin...

Reviews The Bulletproof Diet

  • Sean Liu
    I really wanted to give this 2 stars but hey, I'm drinking the coffee so let's go for 3. Unfortunately, Asprey is extremely salesy and if you're not into used car salesman-types, he's going to make you very uncomfortable. He also loves to tout the benefits the Bulletproof Diet will have on your body as if it is going to shred you up with minimal exercise—I can promise you much of his fitness tips are misguided. Aside from dubious testimonials s...

    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/ances...

    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...

    Asprey's Bulletproof Diet is worth paying attention to.I've gone through several diets in my life. And just when I thought there was nothing better than Tim Ferriss' Slow-Carb diet mentioned in the 4-Hour Body, I came across Dave's work. That marked a significant moment in my approach to nutrition and health, and changed a lot of things in my life.Dave is an unusual wealth of information. He had his own struggles with nearly every health problem ...

    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...

    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 truest roadmap to where God is working in our lives, somethings gotta give with my diet and exercise routine. Throughout the course of the next couple weeks I start...

    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 da...

    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 ...

    Dave delivers againI 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 found this book to be very informative. He gives away a one page PDF of the diet's principles for free which I have been using and feeling the benefits. Now the books out I could learn the story and science behind it all.People complain that he pushes his products but I feel he lays out what to get and how to get the right quality and offers his version. You can do it all without buyin his brand, it's just easy to buy his brand.I've only dabble...
