Do not tell me that the name of the diet of yore is not cool

I also anticipate that it gives me a bit of laziness and malagana when, once again, I touch on these themes of popular, fashionable … or more simply, miraculous diets. The fact is that this particular has just left his country of origin, the United States (but I feel that threatens to do so) and bring it to the front today I know that I run the risk that, whatever he says, there will be who serve as a starting point to “prove” the nth dumb (face) … and that’s what makes me lazy and despair; but hey, we’ll take the risk.

How is the bulletproof diet born?

How is the bulletproof diet born?

This dietary approach stems from the imagination and one – person experience of Dave Asprey , technology investor, who claims to have invested more than 15 years and $ 300,000 to “hack” (cheat or pirate) his own biology and thus get: lose more than 45 kilos ; increase your IQ by more than 20 points; rejuvenate your biological age and; sleep more efficiently and therefore “lose less time” when doing it. And all thanks to its dietary system. Alone. And I say just because it also boasts of getting all this, especially the weight loss, without the need to do too much exercise (really nothing) and show a muscular development at least “interesting” : it does not have waste to take note of the conditions that, according to its author, have surrounded the circumstances of the photo in the previous link:

  • Sleeping less than 5 hours a day on average in the previous two years;
  • Without doing at that time hardly any physical exercise except 4 sessions of yoga and little else; Y
  • Eating an average of between 4000 to 4500 kcal per day.

According to the author it is about “reconnecting” the mind with its more corporeal biology and to teach you how to do it and that you know how to eat for that purpose has released its method in the form of a book and an important panoply of dietary supplements and other trifles between which includes a “induction” inducing blanket (worth the redun-dun-dancia) sleep to sleep more effectively ($ 50). But wait, there is still more that would say super-marathon, among his nonsense proposes the use of some “chistófanos” (which he markets, of course) to eliminate the “electropolución” of your electronic devices and thereby alleviate certain symptoms such as headaches, problems of concentration, confused thinking, agitation, fatigue and depressive states ($ 99). In case you go on a trip it also offers you the possibility of getting a travel-kit at a modest price, $ 49. And the thing continues, do not believe yourself: neuro-optimizers at a rate of $ 5,500 of fleece that includes the Norton 360 antivirus (… and for that price could include up to a Thermomix); a light bulb that facilitates the secretion of melatonin (this, look, only costs $ 15); a brain “focalizer” for only 600 cucumbers … what do you not know what a brain “focalizer” is for? Well, it’s easy: you put it where it comes from, the head, and it will help you according to Dave Asprey to make more lucid decisions, to improve your attention, to think more clearly, to develop your memory, to control your emotions and things by the style (what did you want me to do … miracles?). And there is more, but I do not have any more desire to continue. So if you are interested I invite you to visit his shop-web, packed with knick-knacks and various supplements.

What is the bulletproof diet?

If you have come this far, acknowledge it, the dietary questions bring you to pairo, what you have is wanting to have a few more laughs. The dietary approach as such is traca … In essence there is someone who has equated a diet type “paleo” … but its creator goes further and says that his approach, starting from that beginning, is “even better” : ” It is more effective that the classic paleodietéticos expositions “apostilla … takes geroma … , of the fire to the embers … or of Guatemala to Guatapeor … and with a pair.

With sincerity, I do not want to comment on the dietary nonsense that this man proposes and that lack of a null recognition by the scientific community and on which there is not an iota of scientific literature that corroborates its postulates . True to my critical tradition and for a better understanding, it is easier to discredit a certain dietary approach by looking at the “details” rather than at the core … let’s say that it is about following a more visual than conceptual strategy: Can you imagine Barça or Madrid jumping to the pitch with flip flops in a Champions League final? If that happened, you know well that they are neither Barça nor Madrid, so for what the hell are we going to be left to analyze “their game”. However, if you want, you have a summary of the food choices that this subject invites you to do to follow their method here I leave a link that makes an ultra summary of their approaches. As it well jumps at sight, although “his pyramid” has a pass (I do not think much less the worst) his way of putting it into practice contains details in my opinion absurd … starting with the glorification of organic products (and the criminalization of transgenics) and ending with the promotion of an exorbitant consumption of “good fats” … something that could be aligned with another dietetic-commercial rattle that we know for about 20 years as is the diet of the area .

How is it likely to be disclosed?

How is it likely to be disclosed?

It is likely that his assault on the old continent ( already occurring to some extent ) is encouraged by one of his most fanciful “weapons”: bulletproof coffee or what is the same, a preparation based on organic coffee, idem butter and coconut oil ditto (tranqui, Dave gives you everything in your online shop free of toxins) with which to have breakfast and tackle the grueling morning that one has ahead every day without temptations , hunger or snacking make a dent in the will of its consumers, besides providing an amazing energy (if you also take it in a beaker as he does in the video instead of the typical cup the effect should be multiplied by 10)

In summary

Few times and with such impudence a system or dietetic method is promoted (although it includes many other elements) with so much paraphernalia as to be able to consider it an archetype of what is known as a miracle diet . Its clear and unique objective: to make a box based on saying and selling gili-memeces taking advantage of the gullible desperation of some people . Falling into their networks has two clear consequences, surely a major impairment in the unwary’s economy and very likely a detriment to their health . I would not be surprised if in the next illustrated edition of the DRAE the entry “cantamañanas” brought a picture of Dave Asprey.
