Game Changers What Leaders, Innovators and Mavericks Do to Win at Life

Game Changers What Leaders, Innovators and Mavericks Do to Win at Life

Author: Dave Asprey Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/12/2018

The bestselling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet answers the question How do I kick more ass? -providing proven techniques for becoming happier, healthier, and smarter, culled from the wisdom and insight of world-class thought leaders and mavericks of science and business. When Dave Asprey started his Bulletproof Radio podcast more than five years ago, he sought out thought leaders and influencers in an array of disciplines, from biochemists to business titans to mediation masters. These folks were some of the top performing humans in the world, people who had changed their areas of study or even pioneered entirely new fields. Dave wanted to know: What did they have in common? What mattered most to them? What makes them so successful at what they do-and what makes them happiest? And so, at the end of each interview, Dave began asking the same question: What are your top three recommendations for people who want to kick more ass? Combing through the recordings, looking for patterns and common threads, he found that the wisdom gleaned from these highly successful people can be distilled into three main categories: body, mind, and spirit. Game Changers is the culmination of Dave's years-long statistical analysis of these conversations, offering forty-six science-backed, high performance laws that are a virtual playbook for how to become not only more successful, but also happier and healthier. Each chapter of Game Changers is structured around one of these laws. Dave combines anecdotes from game changers like Daniel Amen, David Perlmutter, Arianna Huffington, Dan Harris, and Tim Ferriss with his own research and practical advice that readers can put into action immediately. From practising gratitude and mindfulness to prioritising social connections and sex, taming fear and anxiety to optimising nutrition and movement, Dave brings together the wisdom of today's game-changers to help everyone optimise their lives.

The Bulletproof Diet Lose up to a Pound a Day, Reclaim Energy and Focus, Upgrade Your Life

Author: Dave Asprey Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/04/2018

In his mid-twenties, 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. The Bulletproof Diet will challenge--and change--the way you think about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat high levels of healthy saturated fat, work out and sleep less, and add smart supplements. In doing so, you'll gain energy, build lean muscle, and watch the pounds melt off. By ditching traditional diet thinking, Asprey went from being overweight and sick in his twenties to maintaining a 100-pound weight loss, increasing his IQ, and feeling better than ever in his forties. The Bulletproof Diet is your blueprint to a better life.

From the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and author of the bestselling The Bulletproof Diet comes a revolutionary plan to upgrade your brainpower-in two weeks or less. For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with world-renowned doctors and scientists to uncover the latest, most innovative methods for making humans perform better-a process known as biohacking. In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, he shared his biohacking tips for taking control of your own biology. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows readers how to biohack their way to a sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brain. Imagine feeling like your mind is operating at its clearest and sharpest, and being able-possibly for the first time in your life-to do more in less time? What it suddenly became easier to do the very hardest things you do? Or if you could feel 100% confident about your intellect, and never again fear being the person in the room who just isn't smart enough, or can't remember something important? How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear? In Head Strong, Asprey shows us that all of this is possible-and more. Using his simple lifestyle modifications (or hacks ) to take advantage of how the structure of your brain works, readers will learn how to take their mental performance to the next level. Combining the latest findings in neuroscience and neurobiology with a hacker-inspired get it done now perspective, Asprey offers a program structured around key areas of brain performance that will help you: Power the brain with exactly what it needs to perform at its best all day long Eliminate the sources of kryptonite, both nutritional and environmental, that make the brain slower. Supercharge the cellular powerhouses of our brains, the mitochondria, to eliminate cravings and turn up mental focus. Reverse inflammation to perform better right now, then stay sharp and energized well into your golden years. Promote neuron growth to enhance processing speed and reinforce new learning-hotwiring your brain for success. Asprey's easy to follow, two-week program offers a detailed plan to supercharge brain performance, including: which foods to eat and which ones to avoid, how to incorporate the right kinds of physical activity into your day, a detox protocol for your home and body; meditation and breathing for performance, recommended brain-boosting supplements; and how to adjust the lighting in your home and work space to give your brain the quality light it thrives on. A better brain-and a happier, easier, more productive life-is within reach. You just need to get Head Strong.

Upgraded Chef: 12 Core Recipes to Supercharge Your Body & Brain

Upgraded Chef: 12 Core Recipes to Supercharge Your Body & Brain

Author: Dave Asprey Format: eBook Release Date: 11/09/2012

ABOUT THE BOOK This cookbook has been a decade in the making. As a bio hacker, I look at cooking as one of the variables that leads to better personal performance. It's not just the quality of your food, it's how it's prepared. Being upgraded I take this stuff more personally than most people for good reason. This is the diet that helped me lose 100 lbs and keep it off since the late 90s. This is the diet that fixed - and upgraded - my brain function. It's the basis of the diet I created to help my wife Lana, a Karolinska-trained physician, restore her fertility so we could start a family at about age 40, after Lana was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) by her OB-GYN, who said she'd likely be infertile. This is literally the diet that transformed my health, my family, my career, and my life. Bulletproofing yourself More than 100,000 people come to my blog every month to learn about how to eat to upgrade their bodies, their brains, and their lives. You can see their unsolicited testimonials on the site; people who lose 20 or more pounds in 6 weeks, without cutting calories. The guy who lost 75 pounds in 75 days. The physicians who use it in their practices. This recipe book isn't going to teach you everything you need to know about the Bulletproof Diet or even all the ways it works. You can find this info for free on Bulletproofexec.com where it can help the most people. Fuel your body with upgraded food This recipe book is going to teach you how to use safe, delicious cooking techniques to prepare meals that taste amazing, but also fuel your body and mind to levels of performance beyond what you probably believe you're capable of. We focus on three main types of cooking because they are the most versatile, flavorful, simple ways to create Bulletproof food. Bulletproof food is high in healthy fats (50-70% of calories), and avoids toxic foods and other toxins created by cooking. These small details can make all the difference in your health. They did for me. EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK "e;These 5 Indian spices make a popular spice mix known as Panch Poron. Make up a triple batch of the seed blend, it's lovely, you'll use it. Bring meats, fish, eggs to room temp before using, find out why on pages 53, 54 & 56."e; "e;Bacon is an amazing food to cook with. The problem is that the quality of your bacon is very important.
