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.

For more than 8,000 years humans have been preserving meat and fish through canning, curing, smoking, and freezing, use techniques that remove the moisture and make it possible to keep meat for much longer than its natural shelf life. However, improper preservation of meat leads to more than 40% of all reported cases of food borne illness according to the Center for Disease Control, meaning it is necessary for everyone to carefully, effectively practice safe storage practices and ensure the meat is well preserved. This book will show any potential meat preserver how to go about the process of storing meat for long term use in a variety of methods, while constantly keeping an eye to the possibility of food borne illness and the loss of freshness. You will learn everything you need to know to start the process of setting aside and preserving your meat, fish, and game. Starting with a series of charts and basic details about different kinds of meat and fish, from venison to beef to salmon, you will learn which animal products store best with which methods, which methods must be avoided, and which diseases are the greatest risk when you store meat. With this information in hand, you will start learning how the freezing, canning, curing, and smoking processes work. You will be given detailed outlines of each process starting with what equipment you will need. Experts in meat preservation have been interviewed and their insights have been included here to provide a detailed and full overview of everything you can expect in the process. From these interviews, you will start the process of understand what you need to effectively preserve meat products. You will learn what can lead to failure for all four methods, what the best possible storage locations are for each, and what materials should be avoided at all costs. Learn how smoking works and the timelines for every form of storage from the moment the animal is butchered to the moment it needs to be preserved. No matter what kind of animal you are preserving, this book will provide the details you need to effectively store the meat for later use.

Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine Artemis describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Artemis also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Artemis introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.
