It’s again that time of year where the days are overcast and short while the nights are frigid and seem to begin even earlier than years past. Many people look forward to the winters for the “cuddle weather” (Netflix and chill weather?), while others increase their calorie intake with reckless abandon in the name of “bulking season”. The holidays bring more gatherings of family and friends, which in turn bring plenty of opportunities to binge eat (and drink), and it’s generally not on the healthiest of foods. This could result in feelings of guilt, shame, and certainly bloatedness. Long-term, it could also lead to breaking many good habits you formed over the year, sabotaging your nutrition, and derailing your path to any fitness goals previously set. However, I use this time of year to allow my body to rest and recover while giving my mind a chance to relax and reset all the while enjoying the indulgences of the holidays (without feeling guilty about it), and being more ready than before to take my fitness to the next level come the new year.Read More
If you're interested in the topics of health, technology, or culture (the cornerstones of AlphaNerd), then the Bulletproof Biohacking Conference is like an adult playground where all of these areas intersect. This is the third year Bulletproof has organized this conference in Pasadena, California and is "the community's foremost live event celebrating groundbreaking work in the optimization of human mental and physical performance." In other words, it's like Disneyland for biohackers and AlphaNerds alike. In fact, I attended last year's Bulletproof Conference and it was a big part of the inspiration and motivation behind the launch of this site. I'm very excited to be going to the Conference again this year to see how Dave Asprey and his team have made it "bigger, better, and upgraded."Read More

Butter and oil in your coffee? That’s kinda weird, right? Why yes, yes it is rather strange. But, it’s healthy, effective, and freakin' delicious. I look forward to waking up every morning, not only because I know I’m about to feel like Superman (ladies, think Wonderwoman), but also because Bulletproof® Coffee is a totally tasty treat.
Why do you need Bulletproof® Coffee in your life? So many reasons…Read More
Sleep, especially of the high-quality variety, is so important to overall health and well-being that it cannot be emphasized enough. In fact, I will go as far as to say that if you had to choose one thing in your life to improve - between diet, exercise, continual learning, etc. - I would say choose sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep is paramount to improving brain function, performance, looking good, longevity, and happiness.Read More
Dave Asprey's The Bulletproof Diet is more than a diet book; it is a healthy lifestyle book with the science to back it up. Dave does a good job of breaking everything down into relatively simple terms, while still providing explanations for the chemistry and biology behind his methods. In other words, he doesn’t just tell you what to eat - he explains how to eat/prepare it, when to eat it, and (most importantly) why to eat it (or not eat it).Read More
