Going Bulletproof for Beginners
By: Dave Asprey
Maybe you heard about Bulletproof Coffee from a friend who just had to buy smaller pants, or listened to Dave Asprey on Bulletproof Radio, or saw a copy of The Bulletproof Diet book on the New York Times Bestseller shelf at the store.
Whatever brought you to the blog – whether you are hoping to lose weight, gain energy, upgrade your brain, hack your food cravings, or just feel great all the time – welcome!
The Bulletproof blog has been around for a few years now. All the information can be overwhelming to a newcomer, so we’ve collected some posts that are especially helpful when you’re starting to go Bulletproof.
Bulletproof for Beginners Overview
Remember: the Bulletproof Diet Roadmap (download it here for free) is a spectrum from green to yellow to red, so you should eat foods in the green zone as much of the time as possible:
- Green – Bulletproof foods (eat a lot of these!)
- Yellow – suspect foods (Be cautious about these. See how they make you feel)
- Red – kryptonite foods (to avoid)
Foods are on a spectrum: some are better than others, but small steps toward improving your diet, sleep, and life are always better than nothing. Even if you don’t plan to go Bulletproof all at once, taking it one step at a time is a great way to go – the more you do, the better you’ll feel!
Here’s a list of introductory posts, sorted by category:
