90% of what he says is true. He’s just a bit over confident and this rubs on people. Some hard truths are hard for the ego of many people… I don’t buy his coffee, but I do use coffee with fats and it’s a freaking boost. MCT oil is smth else… it’s just amazing. I don’t think what he says about sleep is true for high performance. You can sleep 6 hours a day and have really busy days with a lot of social interactions and physical effort – then you can do it day in, day out. Problem is,… Read more »

What a total fraud. ‘Biohacker’ just another term for ‘marketing’. What bogus health advice with interest group funded science and misinterpreted data. Oh and what a surprise, he’s selling products off the back of it. Why not get on someone who is actually qualified to talk about nutrition such as Dr Alan Desond MD, Simon Hill or Dr Dean Sherzai who has dedicated HIS LIFE to making people better with food at his ACTUAL clinic. People who are not trying to sell you anything except better health. A full scientific debunk here on the bulletproof diet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1UHmQzNcm8. Also, as always,… Read more »

Dave Asprey is putting people on the road to atherosclerosis. He lies constantly and presents bogus claims he makes up which are tailor made to keep people excited about their bad habits. Like mixing stimulants with fat and calling it bulletproof coffee so he can sell his coffee to this unsuspecting group as if it was a health drink…lol! Buyer beware he is a snake oil salesman of the century. One of the claims is that vegans who eat a lot of kale get kidney stones than people who eat animal products. Check it out here what dishonest claim that… Read more »

Before you start with the Bulletproof Diet you should look at the response video from Mic the vegan as a second opinion

Most of the arguments he has are not conform with the scientific studies or the studies say the opposite.

e.g. vegans who eat Kale having a higher rate of kidney stones -> https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7140784

Interesting content as always. However, I really wish you (and similar sites that interview these types of people) would actually attempt to do the viewers a service by trying to dig into the controversies around these ideas to try to find the truth. Instead of letting them promote all of their ideas unchallenged, how about asking them to respond to the very legitimate criticisms of their ideas and methods?

So, one of the top leading sleeping experts that came here to London Real (Matthew Walker) says that no one can get away with less than 7 hours of sleep according to the most important and recent study about sleep. Dave Asprey, the once obese and now “biohacker” says he just needs 6… WOW just WOW

If a vegan diet is making you weak. How come i have only felt stronger for the past 3 Years of eating this way ? I am actually a little tired of hearing people on this show talking about how veganism is bad for your health without providing a sufficient and thoughrough explanation to why this is true. The Main thing i am hearing is just that it Will make you weak and animal products are absolutely neccesary for a good health. Whyyy?!? Explain to me why this is so. After i began eating a vegan diet my strength has… Read more »

Unbelievable and scary, how simple this kind of people have so much exposure and attention… Nowadays, people listen more to these people that in a point of their life decided to be healthy and started to read some stuff here and there, having no academic education, no cientific career and no references. Just marketing!!! What is more mindblowing is that today everybody knows that Dave Asprey´s bullet proof coffe was a complete hoax. And still people listen to this crook. How come, a person that had to sacrifice his adolescente time to study very hard to get into med school,… Read more »

Great information, but Dave doesn’t exactly present well as a youthful super human role model, so it’s hard to buy into everything he’s saying. Especially given his goal is to live to 180, he should look way younger vs. way older than 46. If you’re starting an office Deadpool put me down for 80 at best, because I said the same thing about Charles Poliquinx after watching his interview and finding out he was only 56.
