“Willpower, Decision Making, and Food” with Dave Asprey

dave-aspreyJoin well known biohacker Dave Asprey (of the Bulletproof Executive, biohacking and Bulletproof coffee), ranked the 11th most influential voice in health and wellness, who is also SVHI Chairman, to learn about how food impacts decision making and willpower. The talk covers the exact amount of ketones you need and how to get them, how to control your hunger hormones, reset your appetite to match your body weight, and how toxins impact your willpower and decision making. Learn more about food and your adrenals and how hypoglycemia triggers stress, and what to do about it. Walk away understanding exactly what you can put on your plate to make better decisions every day…and have pants that fit you better!

Dave Asprey, The Bulletproof Executive, is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent two decades and over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Dave lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, used techniques to upgrade 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.

Dave is the creator of the widely popular Bulletproof Coffee, host of the #1 health podcast, Bulletproof Radio, and author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Bulletproof Diet. Through his work Dave provides information, techniques and keys to taking control of and improving 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.

Dave’s newest venture Bulletproof Coffee shops and cafes: the first opened in Santa Monica, California in mid 2015.

“The Role of Gut Health” with Les Dethlefsen

PageLines-les-dethlefsen.jpgLes Dethlefsen, PhD, a postdoctoral scholar in microbiology and immunology at the School of Medicine. His current research aims to try to identify the many varieties of microbes found in the human body and to see how these communities of microbes change over time.

Since joining the Relman lab in 2004, he has been studying the microbes (mostly bacteria) that normally live in the human colon. There’s something like 100 trillion microbial cells of thousands of different types living in and on a typical human body, and about 90% of them are in the large intestine. In the last few years there has been an explosion of research into the human microbiota. The reason for all this attention is a growing realization that our native microbes play a huge role (or many huge roles) both in keeping us healthy and in making us sick.
