Biohacking a bulletproof lifestyle: for beginners

jause-338498_640

You may have heard of the Bulletproof lifestyle, but even if you haven’t, you’ve probably heard of the weird trend of butter coffee – a trend that Dave Asprey (the creator of the Bulletproof lifestyle) brought back from his trip to Nepal where he was enamored with yak butter coffee.

So, what is the ‘Bulletproof lifestyle’ exactly? If you haven’t heard of it, it’s pretty much similar to many of the dietary principles out there: a ketogenic diet of low carbs, combined with intermittent fasting, and of course, butter coffee.

Banff on foot, horseback or skis

@ Paul Zizka

@ Paul Zizka

Located about 130km west of Calgary, Banff is Canada’s first national park, designated in 1883.

While summer is popular for hiking, mountain biking, photography, and climbing, the best time to view its seasonal colour is during autumn when the larch trees – the only coniferous trees to lose their needles in winter – turn yellow. In winter, it’s a mecca for downhill and cross-country skiing with its 3 major ski resorts; ski season runs from November to May, and in addition to skiing, you can go ice walking, snowshoeing, and dogsledding.

@ Visit Wales Image Centre

From the craggy peaks of Snowdonia to the lush green hills of the Brecon Beacons, Wales may not have soaring mountains, but its undulating landscape does have it all when it comes to mountain biking. As such, there are between 500km to 600km of purpose-built spectacular singletrack all across Wales, complete with all-weather trail centres, freeride hotspots, bike parks, and wild natural tracks. It’s definitely a hotspot for MTB riders.

Situated where the Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin Austen Glacier meet in a natural amphitheatre, it provides a 360° panorama view of four of the world’s 14 peaks above 8,000m within a radius of 21km.

Central Japan: Toyama, Nagano & Gifu

_T9A9730

Central Japan’s different prefectures collectively share some of Japan’s oldest cultures and traditions.

Cutting through the region is the long-extinct Nakasendo roadway, which once connected Edo (the historic name for Tokyo) and Kyoto, the old imperial capital of Japan, leaving behind a number of old restored postal towns in Nagano and Gifu prefectures that are frozen in a bygone era. Another long-living tradition thrives in Gifu prefecture’s Shirakawa-Go, a World Heritage site with nearly a thousand years of history, and home to residents who claim the first samurai to ever cross swords were from their region.

Cutting across the Central Japan region is the Kurobe River – the lifeline of the region’s high-quality agricultural produce including its renowned wasabi, sake, and even wine. It also cuts a spectacular visual feast for travellers along the famed Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route in Toyama prefecture.

Together, Toyama, Nagano and Gifu offer travellers a wealth of natural wonders, unique seafood, and many stunning cultural sites, making them a perfect alternative to the bright lights of Tokyo.
