Will a week-long water fast cripple you, or cleanse the body?
I started deep research in biohacking and human performance optimization out of frustration with conflicting information in every corner of the internet and media.
With a few keystrokes, we have instant access to a sea of information. Sifting through sensationalized headlines for answers shouldn't feel like finding a needle in a haystack.
For example, in 2012 I sought to learn about coffee. Superfood? Or toxic to the heart? No consensus. I learned in biology classes that genes determine your destiny. Yet an entire branch of science called epigenetics examines how the environment can alter gene expression. And food. Will dietary fat make me fat and kill me, or boost my ketones and unlock new levels of cognition?
Building The Wellness Lifestyle
Everyone takes a different path upgrading their health, physical, and mental performance. Introducing lifestyle change comes at the cost of precious resources: Time, money, and convenience — all to varying degrees. To extract the most of each we must optimize.
In this blog, I will document my trials, tribulations, learnings, lessons, N=1 experiments, failures, and successes. I plan on covering a wide range of topics and through multiple different lenses. For more information regarding future content check out my About page here.
What this means for you: access to tested formulas, processes, technology, and habits backed by research, overwhelming anecdotal success, or ancestral wisdom.
We live in an interesting time. Constant breakthroughs and new technology lead to opportunity. The same novelties expose us to new perils. Through health optimization we can reap the rewards while capping the downsides of living in the modern era.
I would love to know what health & performance optimization topics interest you.
