On this week’s episode, I was able to sit down with the founder & chairman of Bulletproof and New York Times best-selling author, Dave Asprey to talk about fasting! We discuss the best ways to intermittent fast, the science-backed health benefits and how to biohack fasting to make it as easy and effective as possible. We also discuss the special type of fiber that Dave Asprey recommends, what the heck fatty water is, keto collagen bars, the behind-the-scenes origins of Bulletproof as a company and so much more!

Dave Asprey is the Founder & Chairman, Bulletproof. He is a three-time New York Times bestselling science author, host of the Webby award-winning podcast Bulletproof Radio, and has been featured on the Today Show, CNN, The New York Times, Dr. Oz, and more.

Over the last two decades Dave, the “Father of Biohacking”, has worked with world-renowned doctors, researchers, scientists and global mavericks to uncover the latest, most innovative methods, techniques and products for enhancing mental and physical performance. Dave has personally spent over $2 million taking control of his own biology – pushing the bounds of human possibility all in the name of science, evolution and revolution. The creator of the Bulletproof Diet and innovator of Bulletproof Coffee, Collagen Protein supplements and many more advances in commercial wellness products, Dave’s mission is to empower the entire globe with information and knowledge that unlocks the Super Human in everyone at any age.

Through the Bulletproof Diet, Dave has maintained a 100-pound weight loss, improved his sleep cycles, and upgraded his brain, ultimately transforming himself into a better entrepreneur, a better husband, a better father, and overall better human being.
