Smarter NOT Harder: The Secret to Weight Loss - w/ Dave Aspery | The Empowering Neurologist EP 157
Listen now
Maybe we have it all wrong. Maybe we are overdoing it, especially as it relates to things like exercise. Should we tap into the “power of laziness?”   In Dave Asprey's new book, SMARTER NOT HARDER: The Biohacker's Guide to Getting the Body and Mind you Want, Asprey makes a compelling point that indeed less may be more. He describes how we live in a time where we finally have such a level of understanding of human physiology that we are indeed able to hack into ancient pathways to bring about health and vitality by implementing knowledge based interventions.   The approaches he describes go well beyond simply engaging in very short burst of high intensity activity, but also include important nutritional recommendations, and even ways hack the brain using exciting new technologies.   As always, I do enjoy my time with Dave Asprey. The conclusions he reaches are always based upon a deep level of exploration and always seem valuable.   ====   Timestamps:  0:00 Intro 2:27 The Power of Laziness 7:58 What DOESN’T Work 12:06 Metrics & Data 15:11 Increasing Energy/ Motivation 17:30 Phytic Acid 21:15 Oxalic Acid 24:07 Night Shades & Fermented Foods 28:15 Danger of Imitation Meat Products 32:00 Fat Consumption 38:36 Supplements 42:01 Enhancing the Brain & Vision 57:09 Conclusion     ====   Dave Asprey is an acclaimed entrepreneur, four-time New York Times best-selling science author, host of the top 100 podcast, The Human Upgrade, and CEO of Upgrade Labs.    Known as the “Father of Biohacking,” Dave has worked with world-renowned doctors, researchers, scientists, and global mavericks over the last two decades to uncover the latest, most innovative methods, techniques, and products that enhance mental and physical performance.
