On the night of March 20th, 2011, Andy’s desperation became his inspiration to create Alitura. He had been struck by a series of large vehicles while crossing a busy street. Andy had a collapsed lung, seven broken ribs and a severe compound fracture of his jaw, which was broken in five places. As someone who has always made a living based upon my appearance (modeling) and execution of demanding physical tasks (professional baseball), the outcome of this incident had far-reaching implications. He recognized that he had the power to choose as we all do when faced with stressful events and was determined to bounce back even stronger. Andy was inspired and told himself that what he put in would be what he’d get out and he knew he had to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary. By approaching his problem from a nutritional perspective, he rebuilt himself and was back on a runway in a mere 7 weeks. He attacked his injuries both from the inside and outside. The most critical tool for healing his exterior was a hand-crafted blend of unique, specialized ingredients from around the world that Andy formulated himself. Thus, the Alitura Clay Mask was born. Alitura's mission is: "To provide customers with an exciting healthy experience from superior ingredients in a fine selection of high quality skin care products."

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, 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.
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.

Wired To Eat explains how more willpower and better discipline are not the missing pieces to health and fat loss. Our genetics are working against us in the modern world of super tasty foods. In this new book you will learn about neuroregulation of appetite and how hyperpalatable foods can bypass our built in “off switch”, causing us to eat far more than we otherwise would. The genes that made our ancestors successful are setting us up for troubles today. You will learn how sleep, gut health, stress, exercise and community can work with or against our goals of health and leanness. With Wired To Eat you’ll embark on a program to rewire your appetite and regain your health. We will start with a 30 Day Reset that will normalize the neuroregulation of appetite and help us not only to eat the right amount, but also begin to appreciate simple but delicious meals. After the 30 Day Reset we will use the 7 Day Carb Test to map what specific carbohydrate foods we do best (and worst) with. This will move us beyond one-size-fits-all dietary dogma and into the modern world of Personalized Nutrition. Wired To Eat includes over 60 whole-food recipes and includes meal plans for the 30 Day Reset as well as for autoimmune and ketogenic diets. Click here to purchase Robb's book, Wired To Eat.
