    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 sympt...

    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 ...

    I guess I should be happy that I read this in 2017 instead of the year it was published. This book claimed that most coffee has mold! There was even an explanation of the research it took to find this out. Of course I had to look this up! Relax, it's not true. Even Folgers uses a wet p...

    Interesting guy, interesting book. He is very focused on the results of "biohacking" his own body and life, but he's also worked with many clients at this point, and has done a lot of research. He is also focused on toxins & myotoxins--whey they are in your food, what they might be...

    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 hav...

    Dave Asprey is a former high-tech entrepreneur turned biohacker and the creator of Bulltetproof coffee and the Bulletproof brand. He has a popular podcast, Bulletproof Radio, which I listen to regularly. This book summarizes a lot of his philosophy in biohacking and how lifestyle, espe...

    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 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...

    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...

    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, c...

    Um livro pra te fazer repensar a forma como voc se alimenta. Parece radical e faz voc ficar meio paranoico com os alimentos. As referncias citadas do credibilidade teoria e no custa tentar para ver os resultados. J estou colhendo alguns. ...

    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. Dis...

    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 ...

    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 l...

    I was definitely intrigued by this book, and have even incorporated some of this diet into my daily routine. However, this diet is 50-75 percent fat and my husband who is a registered dietitian with a masters in sports nutrition said that no matter what this guy claims, he says there i...

    What does your Mom get you for your birthday?...I now get books on healthy eating. Yea - thanks mom. I actually already follow many of the guidelines set forth in the book, but did pick up a few tweaks and inspiration to be more disciplined. Asprey doesn't provide any hard statistical ...

    I'm going to "look and feel fabulous" they say. A little skeptic, but price drop to $1.99 on 5/4/17 https://www.amazon.com/Bulletproof-Di... I've had this on my wish list since a PT I worked with suggested it to me for health reasons. The coffee part at least sounds good. ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    scares you straight First book I read on my new kindle. Could not put it down. Back on track after losing my way over the last 5 months and adding 20 pounds of weight and feeling brain fog again after 2 years of living awesome. Anyone and everyone should read the book and then make...

    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 b...

    After trying a ketogenic diet for a couple weeks and feeling great (except for the one time I slipped up) I remembered I had this book and thought it might be a more sustainable version of the diet. To be blunt, it's really not. It *did* show me that yogurt makes me feel gross, but 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...

    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 appro...

    Dave delivers again I 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 tra...

    I was a little disappointed. It's not a bad book, it's just that I'd been waiting a while for it. I purposely didn't read about the bulletproof lifestyle because I wanted a coherent story that starts from the beginning instead of riffling through his blog. I was disappointed beca...

    Very interesting! After reading this I joined a Bulletproof FB Group to get some more information on real people's results. It definitely intrigued me based on the science behind this diet. I have tried and do enjoy the Bulletproof Coffee. ...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. The pros: - It was well organized and contained a lot of great information, often in unexpected areas such as which fruits/veggies are highest in fructose, highest in pesticides, most likely to be GMO, etc. - The author was very honest abou...

    I had heard a lot of good things about this book and diet and was hoping that it wasn't too good to be true. Unfortunately, after doing some digging around there are many rabbit holes one can go down to find the fallacies in Asprey's claims. The book itself is an easy enough read, alth...

    I didn't read this because I wanted to loose weight. Rather, I love reading about food/nutrition, I had heard of Asprey and Bulletproof Coffee, and I had started doing it in the morning and really enjoying it for a week or so. So, I decided to officially read the book. I think it is un...
