Our take – “Bulletproof” removes a lot of the caveman-y paleo/cross-fit with their approach to diet and exercise and adds in the gadgets and more science, or at least more opportunities for science, it’s self-experiment which may or may not work for each person, if you’re young and motivated, it might not matter, doing anything and measuring it will usually yield results. It will be appealing for the tech crowds that look at soylent and other “new” ways to drop weight, stay fit, with the least amount of effort, an iOS app to buy, a gadget to get via Amazon prime. Coffee with ghee and MCT oil is pretty good 🙂
