Dave Asprey discusses key highlights from his new book, Head Strong: http://amzn.to/2oyTcO4

A key theme we address herein is why dietary quality matters--especially for low-carb, high-fat (ketogenic) diets and the many ways to boost mitochondrial function for optimal brain health.

Key Takeaways:

02:23 Origins of Bulletproof Coffee:

04:15 Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting: Dave was an early adapter to intermittent fasting.

07:29 More Neurologic Resilience: Mitochondria take food, light and direct electrical current and convert them into electricity within you.

09:36 Ketones and Your DNA: To manufacture protein in your cells, like neurotransmitters, repair proteins and bone synthesis, you need to be able to read the DNA. It is easier for your body to read DNA in the presence of ketones. There is also a reduction in inflammation from ketones.

11:21 Combine the Ketogenic AND Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Many ketogenic diets include NutraSweet, a mitochondrial toxin.

17:05 Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators: Within the past 2 years Dave has increased his polyphenol intake and he has been using selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs).

24:25 Excess Cortisol: Excess cortisol negatively impacts mitochondrial function, causes weight gain and impedes muscle growth.

26:35 Mitochondria and Meditation: 30:13 The Power of Mitochondria: Mitochondria drive your emotions and behavior. They decide if a cell lives or dies.

34:42 Light’s Affect upon Mitochondrial Function: We have a deficiency of red light. We are too often exposed to blue light. O

49:15 Tracking Willpower:  Willpower requires electrons, which requires fuel. Every decision you make costs you something.

50:02 Dave’s Work Routine: His calendar is booked every minute of every day for the time he has agreed to work.

51:26 Dave’s Challenge: He believes that one of the most important things is to have quality unstructured time. That allows for creativity. He would like to have two mornings a week where nothing is scheduled.

55:49 Training Intuition: Dave consciously trains his intuition. Neuro Minor software is designed to teach you what is going on in your brain when you are not paying attention.

58:00 Dave’s Favorite Superfood: Coffee is his choice. The caffeine from 3 to 5 cups of coffee can double your morning ketones. Coffee is also a rich source of polyphenols and it tastes good.

59:19 Dave’s Elevator Pitch: It is time to go after Monsanto.
