You've Been LIED TO About Calories & Losing Weight! (TRUTH BEHIND DIET & LONGEVITY) | Dave Asprey
Early to mid 2000s became the time of “hacks.” The popularity of lifestyle hacks and health hacks are evidence of how lazy we really are. It’s time to admit how lazy we actually are. We’ve been trying to hack our way out of any real effort in life, health, and success.
The “father of biohacking,” Dave Asprey is a champion for health hacks and admittedly just as lazy as everyone else. Most people will admit to wanting a great physique and outstanding physical, mental, and emotional health, yet people spend all of their time avoiding the things that get the results they say they want.
Dave is joining Tom on this episode to reveal the idea behind his latest book, Smarter Not Harder: The Biohacker’s Guide to Getting the Body and Mind You Want. Aside from the fact that we’re all naturally conditioned to be lazy, as Dave explains, we’re also bombarded with misinformation that makes getting the body and mind you want near impossible.
Losing weight is at the top of the list for a lot of people, but so is boosting energy and keeping the mind sharp and focused. This episode with Dave is going to reveal a few key ideas for you:
Why you don’t need a caloric deficit to lose weight
3 reasons why calories in calories out doesn’t work (and should be banned)
How you can actually hack spirituality
Dave Asprey is the founder of the Bulletproof diet and Upgrade Labs. He’s already reversed his biological age by 11 years thanks to biohacking and following tons of research. He’s gone from a 46 inch waste to losing over 100 pounds and maintaining a healthy weight. Dave has created a movement around the power of intention and human spirit in pursuit of high performance.
“There’s absolutely a system that does things before our brain can do it.”
“The fact that you can gain weight from the same number of calories depending on when they’re eaten destroys calories in calories out. It’s an over simplified lazy way of thinking about weight loss…”
“Very few people do well over long periods of time on a carnivore diet or on a vegan diet.”
“The thesis behind ‘Smarter Not Harder’ is that our systems are elegantly lazy and that we are lazy as a result and that there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, laziness has driven all progress in humans.”
“The fact that you can eat junk food doesn’t mean it’s not harming you. The fact you don’t get fat from it doesn’t mean it’s not harming you.”
“The vast majority of the people listening to this show want to want to exercise but they don’t actually want to exercise.”
