A few precautions and some careful preparation can prevent a lot of headaches -- and bad investments -- down the road.

Genre: Health & Fitness

Mit Mitte 20 war Dave Asprey ein erfolgreicher Unternehmer im Silicon Valley und Multimillionär. Doch er wog auch 140 Kilo, und das obwohl er der Empfehlung seiner Ärzte folgte, an sechs Tagen pro Woche nur 1800 Kalorien zu essen und 90 Minuten zu trainieren. Als sein Übergewicht ihm zunehmend die Sinne zu vernebeln begann und Heißhungerattacken ihm Energie und Willenskraft raubten, fing Asprey an, die Technologien, mit denen er reich geworden war, selbst zu nutzen, um seine eigene Biologie zu »hacken«. Er investierte 15 Jahre und 300?000 Dollar in alle erdenklichen Testverfahren und Selbstversuche, vom EEG bis zu einem Aufenthalt in einem tibetischen Kloster, um herauszufinden, wie er seinem Körper und Geist ein maximales Upgrade verschaffen konnte. Bulletproof – auf Deutsch »kugelsicher« oder »unverwundbar« – nennt er den Status, in dem man konstante Höchstleistung bringen kann, ohne auszubrennen oder krank zu werden. Asprey gelang es, seinen IQ um mehr als 20 Punkte zu erhöhen, sein biologisches Alter zu senken und ohne Kalorienzählen oder Sport 50 Kilo abzunehmen. Seine vielfältigen Erkenntnisse versammelt er in diesem Buch. Die Bulletproof-Diät hemmt entzündliche Prozesse im Körper, sorgt für schnellen, hungerfreien Gewichtsverlust und höchste Leistungsfähigkeit. Anstelle eines Frühstücks gibt es den berühmten Bulletproof-Kaffee mit Kokosöl und Butter, der lange sättigt und einen dauerhaften Energieschub verschafft. Kalorienzählen ist nicht nötig und auch bei weniger Schlaf und weniger Sport wird das überschüssige Fett nur so dahinschmelzen.
