  • I bought it...I wish I could find time to read it. Honestly, skimmed the surface and so far it is so packed with info that I need some good alone time to read it. Also...I never am good at reading digitally...I prefer hard copies so it will take me longer to get through. Some awesome recommendations in it though. 


    Help me get my blog up and running...check it out for recipes and info

  • After reading through your blog it is on my list of books to buy and read 'soon'. Easter is coming up so may find some time over that period to read and digest.

  • I got it too after seeing your posts here in the forum. Its on my to-read list when flying to Europe next week. Looking forward to reading it.

    I've read it and I think it's excellent. I chose enteric coated peppermint oil and NAC (didn't know enough about EDTA) twice daily. I read on Jack Kruse's site you shouldn't take NAC without vitamin C but I couldn't find much research on that either. I'm starting to feel like I did when I first started incorporating aspects of the Bulletproof Life, specifically the most energy and least brain fog I've ever had. I'm going to go for the 4 week recommendation and then start the gut rebuild with Jarrow Dophilus EPS as my chosen probiotic. The only possible side effect I have noticed is dry mouth but I have yet to isolate this to the protocol. No herx flu this time  ;). I've also upgraded my morning salt water to the salt water with the other ingredients suggested and an additional 1/8 tsp tumeric and this has made a noticeably positive impact to my morning.


    Overall very optimistic about this protocol.


    Any comments/criticisms are most welcome.

    Thanks to the internet, health experts, and my unending curiosity, I have overcome: excessive sweating (adrenal fatigue), anxiety and panic attacks, extremely high estrogen levels (man boobs), chronic brain fog (yeast overgrowth), depression, and am currently battling SIBO (took it from being so bloated it felt like my stomach skin was going to rip, slept 2 hours per night for a week because of upset stomach and being chronically fatigued to very mild, manageable but still annoying symptoms) and currently battling sleep deprivation/insomnia probably due to the SIBO/Leaky Gut and resulting histamine intolerance.

  • Definitely looking forward to buying and then reading it (reading Gary Taubes now). I just wish there was a hard copy version available.

    Just curious how was it?




     


    I paid for your book months ago but never got a link.

    Massachusetts Bulletproof Resources! (Local BP resources for food/vitamins, meditation, bio-hacking/tech-centers, etc.)

    If you know of a local resource that I haven't listed, or have a warning for known local health scams or bad "BP" businesses, please PM me.

    If it's a good resource, I'll add it to the master-list (I was inspired by suntoucher & Ron Swanson.)

    John, I also would love a print copy. Have you looked at https://www.createspace.com/ or similar?


     


    I have skimmed through it so far, and it has a lot of detail. 

  • I tried the Amazon link, and as an Australian resident it doesn't allow me to purchase the Kindle version. Are you able to make it available to Amazon customers in other countries?

    How much NAC are you taking?














    600mg jarrow nac sustain, twice a day. I tend to take it 30-60 min before the peppermint oil and the peppermint oil I take 30-60 min before a meal. That is just what is convenient for me. Any preferences with regards to optimizing the timing of each?

  • Started book last night... very dense with information and very interesting. Thanks for the hard work.


     


    We do not have specific gut problems, but my wife, who was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, is having some horrific herx reactions to the treatment protocol. We are going to try to implement some of your protocols to help.


     


    Thanks again.


  • I read it a while back. From what I remember, after reading the book I changed my defecation posture and started taking magnesium glycinate instead of citrate.


    Those habits aside it's one of my go to books when looking up stuff. The 'search' function is super useful.

    I purchased it two weeks ago. read nearly front to back. i'll be giving a few things a try for sure.


    it was a really good read. i'm looking at prebiotics and probiotics and gut health in a new way*.


     


    edit: actually looking at my gut health for the first time. i'd dabbled here and there trying to figure out what was going on with me and beer.

    I find it hard to read. The content is good but I felt like I NEEDED the search to find what I am looking for. Especially when I was looking for some protocols related to a problem that was placed under a different headline.


    It feels a bit like a collection of illnesses that you can fix however it seems incomplete. There is much more info on your blog that I would add to the book. Sometimes I need you blog to get all the info. Also I would add more scientific basics in the beginning of the book. Explaining it all. I like it when it gets technical. I don't like those stupid patient stories that I can see in all books. I also hate it when there are no references to studies or scientific articles.


     


    I like Body By Science and Why isn't my Brain working because they have a lot of refs to their studies and people can complain about it if they want or not. Also they both can get very technical. I don't like Why isn't my Brain Working for all these stupid stories everywhere.... BBS also has a few of them but not so many if I remember correctly. That is fine.


     


    The Wahls Protocol is also full of these stories and not technical enough. However it has some nice instructions on how to hack your biology and tables with bloodworks and examples of diaries and such things while sticking to a laymans level in writing. I like that. Introduce the audience to a topic with the fundamentals. Then get technical and then provide answers, then maybe make a review at the end. I must say I do not like The Bulletproof Diet Book. I did not read it entirely but I am missing a lot of stuff like references to studies or getting more into detail when it comes to topics where he has no studies but personal experiences like the garlic problem. Even when it comes to Ayurveda principles I would have liked to read where these ayurvedic principles came from. Was it the great indian master monk who told him that in person or was it some random blog post from the internet without any real background.... Also I don't like those sketchy neighborhoods and descriptions like that. Like as if the reader was stupid... it's too simple.  Sorry for bashing the bp diet book I am writing this from the viewpoint of a biohacker and I am not new to the topic but more of an advanced reader. So think about that as well. Who is your reader.


     


    EDIT: I read the book a while back so maybe I am referring to an old version.

    the book is a first of its kind for all that i know, and thats amazing already, i also love the staright to the point aspect of it


    I'm also using it as a first 'go-to' book when looking up stuff,


    i think whats lacking is that for most protocols the duration is not mentioned


    if anyonw knows of any other book that looks at gut health the way 'fix your gut' does, id love to hear recommendations

  •  Your book is already on my to-read list. Just waiting for it’s turn, while I’m expecting this forum.  :cool:
