If you’re like most people, you learned the same things I did growing up: You’re stuck with the brain you were born with, being skinny or fat is genetic and performance is a matter of effort.
Oh, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
I can tell you that none of that is true.
I’m Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof, and I’m a biohacker.
Biohacking (verb, noun):
(v): changing your environment from the inside-out so you have full control of your biology; using your body as your personal laboratory, finding the exact hacks that work for you.
(n): the art and science of becoming superhuman.

How Bulletproof began
WELCOME TO THE STATE OF HIGH PERFORMANCE
I can tell you firsthand that you’re not condemned to live with the body and brain you were born with.
For nearly two decades, I’ve been challenging the status quo of nutrition and medicine to feel better and have more energy in my 40s than I did when I was in my teens or 20s. I believe you can do this, too.
UPGRADE YOUR LIFE AND GET BETTER AT EVERYTHING
No matter your weight, your background, your family or work situation, I believe you can upgrade your body and your brain to perform better than you ever have. It doesn’t have to cost a lot. It doesn’t even have to take up a ton of your time.
In fact, the most important step to begin changing your body, your brain, even your career and personal relationships is the belief that you can change.
