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.

Dave Asprey, Erfinder des Bulletproof-Kaffees und Autor des Bestsellers Die Bulletproof-Diät, arbeitete die vergangenen zehn Jahre mit weltweit angesehenen Ärzten an der Erforschung der Neuroplastizität des Gehirns. Hierbei ging es ihm vor allem darum herauszufinden, wie sich unsere geistige Leistungsfähigkeit, Energie und Widerstandskraft steigern lassen. Er fand heraus, dass einfache Veränderungen des Lebensstils, sogenannte „Hacks", große Veränderungen der Hirnaktivität bewirken können. Als er diese Hacks bei sich selbst anwandte, erhöhte sich sein IQ um 20 Punkte und zugleich senkte sich sein biologisches Alter. In seinem neuen Buch Hirntuning zeigt Asprey, was unser Gehirn benötigt, um den ganzen Tag in Bestform zu sein, sodass wir absolut klar denken und in geringer Zeit sehr viel mehr leisten können. Betroffen sind vier zentrale Bereiche des Alltags: Ernährung, Schlaf, Bewegung und die Beleuchtung sowohl am Arbeitsplatz als auch zu Hause. Werden hier gezielte Optimierungen vorgenommen, werden das Wachstum von Neuronen angeregt und neue Mitochondrien gebildet. Informationen können dann schneller verarbeitet werden und dem Gehirn steht ein Vielfaches an Energie zur Verfügung.

In his midtwenties, 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.

Seit Beginn der Menschheit klafft zwischen Arm und Reich eine scheinbar unüberwindbare Kluft. Einige wenige leben privilegiert, die Masse strampelt sich ab für das Nötigste. In ihrem Buch "Überfluss" belegen Dr. Peter Diamandis und Steven Kotler, dass sich diese Kluft rasant zu schließen beginnt. Sie dokumentieren, wie uns der Fortschritt durch künstliche Intelligenz, Computertechnik, Nanomaterialen, synthetische Biologie und andere exponentiell wachsende Technologien in den nächsten 20 Jahren weiter bringen wird, als es in den letzten zweihundert Jahren der Fall war. Denn gelingt es uns, die bereits vorhandenen Neuerungen sinnvoll einzusetzen, werden wir bald die Grundbedürfnisse jedes Menschen auf unserem Planeten stillen können. In allen Bereichen dieser Grundbedürfnisse wie Wasser, Nahrung, Energie, Gesundheitsvorsorge, Erziehung und Freiheit stellen uns die Autoren dutzende von Erfindern und Unternehmenslenkern vor, die auf ihrem jeweiligen Gebiet bereits Quantensprünge vorweisen können und belegen dies durch umfassendes Informationsmaterial, Grafiken und Charts. Dieses Buch ist ein heilsames Gegenmittel für den vorherrschenden Pessimismus und zeigt uns, dass wir allen Grund haben, zuversichtlich in die Zukunft zu blicken.

Would you like to have the confidence, the kind of driving purpose, that shuts out all fear? Do you want your life to be filled with adventure? There are many kinds of soldiers, and the ones that this book is written for don’t necessarily wear a uniform. The missions these soldiers undertake have more than just political or historical significance—they are impacting eternity. Bulletproof is a field manual for the Christian soldier. It addresses the issues of fear and risk from a Christian perspective, using primarily military examples and analogies. Holton teaches believers how to overcome fear and join the ranks of the army of God. Terrorism. Murder. Disease. Job Loss. Road Rage. Weapons of Mass Destruction. Environmental Disaster. What Are You Scared? By every sense of reason, you should be. By faith, you don’t have to be. God’s soldiers are issued body armor: Peace that surpasses understanding. But you must choose to put it on. Chuck Holton reveals how to claim this peace of mind and rest in the sovereignty of God’s plan while stationed in our dangerous world. Not denying legitimate causes for fear, Holton’s balanced perspective to living boldly as a Christian today offers refreshing hope in the midst of rampant anxiety. Because when you begin seeing things from the Commander’s perspective, you won’t have to dodge bullets. Until your mission is complete, you are bulletproof. Story Behind the Book “In October 2002, a sniper started killing people at random in the area where I live. The community almost ground to a standstill, with people refusing to leave their homes, drive the streets, or send their children to school until the killer was found. What disturbed me most was the reaction of many of my fellow Christians—one of fear just like their unsaved neighbors. I felt we were passing up a perfect opportunity to model the peace that passes all understanding to a very needy audience. Since then I have come to realize that the Bible, almost in its entirety, tells us over and over again that we should not be afraid. A life lived trusting God is a fearless, confident life that will draw others to it.” From the Trade Paperback edition.

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.

In July of 1999, Brax Bragg was on the brink of something big. After being published twice in the Mercer University literary review, he gleaned his lyrical poetry and set out to be the next Bob Dylan. Many nights of paying his dues while singing across the Southeast soon paid off for Bragg. He quickly went from a one-man minstrel to recording a CD with his new band. Shows were booked, and Bragg left for a short vacation before setting out on the road. All this was tragically cut short by a car accident which claimed the life of Bragg as well as his younger brother. Brax Bragg's unique creative gifts have not been lost. Bullet Proof Bible, a collection of Bragg's work, contains over 450 pieces of poetry, song lyrics, and essays as taken from his journals, notebooks, and personal writings.

Between investigating the abduction of a human rights activist, tracking down a murderous arms dealer, keeping up with her wildly dangerous new partner, and occasionally trying to date a hunk who may or may not be CIA, Nikki has to use all the courage and cosmetic technology she’s got to bring down the bad guys and get out alive.
