Smarter Science of Slim vs. Calorie Myths with Jonathan Bailor » podcasts
Summary: What if everything you thought you knew about weight loss was wrong? When it comes to most things in life, we welcome research and progress. From the convenience of our smartphones to the technology in our hospitals, scientific advancement allows us to live better. So why are we still following weight-loss advice from the 1950s? Why haven’t we ever questioned the “calories in/calories out” model at the foundation of every diet and fitness plan—a formula that, not coincidentally, has accompanied record-breaking levels of obesity? In The Smarter Science of Slim Show, Jonathan Bailor, author of The Calorie Myth, exposes the fundamental flaw upon which the diet industry is built and offers a new equation: EAT MORE + EXERCISE LESS = WEIGHT LOSS Free 28 day eating/exercise program: www.bailorgroup.com/freeprogram You don’t have to go hungry or spend hours exercising to get healthy & be happy.

Dave Asprey, founder of The Bulletproof Executive, is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent 15 years and over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Dave lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, upgraded his brain by more than 20 IQ points, and lowered his biological age while learning to sleep more efficiently in less time. Learning to do these seemingly impossible things transformed him into a better entrepreneur, a better husband, and a better father. From private brain EEG facilities hidden in a Canadian forest to remote monasteries in Tibet, from Silicon Valley to the Andes, Dave used hacking techniques and tried everything on himself, obsessively focused on discovering the answers to this one persistent question: What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything? What emerged is the idea of being “Bulletproof”, the state of high performance where you take control of and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control your decisions. It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind this way, if you were lucky enough to even know it was possible. Technology has changed the rules. Dave founded The Bulletproof Executive to make these breakthroughs – and the body and brain you deserve — easily available to you in your everyday life. “One of the greatest pleasures of sharing this information on The Bulletproof Executive is the opportunity to provide proven guidance and helpful products to millions of people. It is rewarding to hear the incredible stories of how our readers simultaneously improve their performance, lose weight, and become more productive! People have more potential than they realize, and being in the Bulletproof state unlocks that potential. Because my strengths, failures, and growth have become solutions to other peoples’ problems, I am honored to share these solutions.” – Dave Asprey

Robert Greene is an American author and speaker known for his books on strategy, power and seduction. He has written four international bestsellers: The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, and The 50th Law (with rapper 50 Cent). Early life Greene grew up in Los Angeles and attended University of California, Berkeley before finishing his degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.A. in classical studies. Before becoming an author, Greene estimates that he worked 80 jobs, including as a construction worker, translator, magazine editor, and Hollywood movie writer. In 1995, Greene worked as a writer at Fabrica, an art and media school in Italy, and met a book packager named Joost Elffers. Greene pitched a book about power to Elffers and wrote a treatment which eventually became The 48 Laws of Power. He would note this as the turning point of his life. Books The 48 Laws of Power Greene's first book, The 48 Laws of Power, is a practical guide for anyone who wants power, observes power, or wants to arm himself against power. The laws are a distillation of 3,000 years in the history of power, drawing on the lives of strategists and historical figures like Niccolò Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, Queen Elizabeth I, Henry Kissinger, and P.T. Barnum. Each law has its own chapter, complete with a "transgression of the law," "observation of the law," and a "reversal." The 48 Laws of Power was an international bestseller and has sold over 1.2 million copies in the United States alone. It is popular with well-known rappers, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletesand actors including 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, DJ Premier, Dov Charney, Brian Grazer, Andrew Bynum, Chris Bosh, and Will Smith. The Art of Seduction Greene's second book, The Art of Seduction, was published in 2004 and is a handbook on the most subtle and effective form of power, seduction. The book profiles the nine types of seducers (e.g. The Rake, The Siren, and The Charmer) and details aspects of attraction, authenticity, storytelling and negotiation. Greene uses examples from historical figures such as Cleopatra,Giacomo Casanova, Duke Ellington and John F. Kennedy to support the psychology behind seduction. The Art of Seduction is mentioned in Neil Strauss' book The Game as a recommended book in the seduction community. It has sold more than 500,000 copies. The 33 Strategies of War The 33 Strategies of War is the third book by Greene and was published in 2007. The book is divided into five parts: Self-Directed Warfare, Organizational (Team) Warfare, Defensive Warfare, Offensive Warfare and Unconventional (Dirty) Warfare. The book is a guide to the campaign of everyday life and distills military wisdom from historical figures like Napoleon Bonaparte, Sun Tzu,Alfred Hitchcock, Alexander the Great and Margaret Thatcher. The Sunday Times called the book "an excellent toolkit for dealing with business and relationships," and The Independent called Greene "a modern-day Machiavelli." NBA player Chris Boshstated that his favorite book is The 33 Strategies of War. It has sold more than 200,000 copies. The 50th Law The 50th Law is the fourth book by Greene—written collaboratively with rapper 50 Cent—and was published in 2009. The book illustrates universal laws about strategy and fearlessness by supplementing anecdotes from 50 Cent's rise as both a young urban hustler and as an up-and-coming musician with lessons from historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Socrates,Malcolm X, Miles Davis, François de La Rochefoucauld, Machiavelli, Richard Wright, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Charlie Parker, and the Baron de Montesquieu. Each of the 10 chapters in the book explains a factor of fearlessness and begins by telling how 50 learned this "Fearless Philosophy" in Southside Queens. The book debuted at #5 on The N[...]
