Dave Asprey, author of The Bulletproof Diet. I drink his brand of coffee daily, and seek out meat, butter and eggs from animals raised on pasture, thanks to the guiding words of Asprey.

Books that I highly recommend:

  • Eat Fat, Get Thin, by Mark Hyman -- the truth about high quality dietary fats and why your body needs them
  • The Bulletproof Diet, by Dave Asprey -- you'll learn why the quality of your food really does matter
  • By the Numbers, by Sean Manseau -- his classes taught me much of what I know about how to move in the gym
  • The Metabolic Effect Diet, by Jade and Keoni Teta -- how to keep your insulin levels low so that you can finally tap into stored body fat as fuel
