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.

Interesting book, but the advice is questionable
The book is interesting to listen, that's for sure. And even if you decide not to follow the diet, you will get a lot of useful information regarding different food items.
Basically you need to drink bulletproof coffee in the morning (coffee with unsaturated fats), then eat only protein and vegetables during the day, and either starches or 1 fruit in the evening.
Could be useful for someone, but not for me. I never drank coffee, so won't start this now. Tried for 2 weeks green tea with bulletproof fats, but it did not work - I just feel hungry. Overall quite confusing what actually I am supposed to eat for the breakfast... I cannot eat eggs all the time. And life with 1 fruit or no fruit a day, is just not for me. By the second week I felt irritated and angry, and hungry. I think this diet could work better for men than for women and for someone it could be a good fit, but not for me.
