Publisher's Summary

In his mid-20s, 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.
TheBulletproof Diet will change what you think you know about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat a high-fat diet, work out and sleep less, and handle stress with ease. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey has maintained a 100-pound weight loss, increased his IQ, and reached a level of health that seemed unattainable. His 40s are truly better than his 20s, and The Bulletproof Diet brings his best hacks to the masses.

8 hour sales pitch

The book has a rather large amount of sales pitch and very little how to. Think of reading a health magazine or news article that says studies show that this food may affect some (but not all) people poorly. The book highlights that food as all of that food causes whatever the ailment. He chops it up as gospel without reference. He constantly talks about his coffee that you buy from him, and the repetition is quite agonizingly boring. I've read and listened to many diet books and I must say, I'm not discrediting the diet, but the book is beyond boring and an 8 hour sales pitch. You could skip to the last half hour and download the accompanying PDF, and have what you really need to know

Where is the section on the use of high-end drugs?

Any additional comments?

I'm a bit disenchanted about the author's use of Modafinil, testosterone replacement, and thyroid meds. All of these will bring about the results this diet supposedly generates. I'm still researching this but I wish Dave would come clean right away in the book.
