I’ve been following Dave Asprey (the “inventor” of the BulletProof coffee) for many years now. I used to enjoy reading about his relentless efforts to make himself live longer and healthier through unorthodox ways.
I’ve read all his books and I think he inspired some great threads in the biohacking world. I have fallen off his fan list a year or so ago when I felt his actions were driven by the desire to make a profit more than by his drive to make others achieve their health goals.
I still enjoy reading his published work and most importantly I love that he created a playground for “biohackers” at the BulletProof lab in Santa Monica in Los Angeles. You’re supposed to get a week worth of gym workout in 20 minutes in this place
Every time I go I have a lot of fun trying devices I wouldn’t have access to otherwise. There’s no place like it. The only regret I have is , because i don’t live full time in LA, I don’t have to the opportunity to do a full run of training that can show me net improvements.
Here’s what I tried so far Continue reading »
I really dislike cooking. So much so that my biggest dream is that someday I will have a personal chef. One who’s as obsessive on macros and nutrients and latest data on longevity and health factors as I am.
Until then I sort my One Meal a Day (OMAD) on my own (I do OMAD because it saves me about 14 hours a week time and data shows it’s most effective way to keep your body in great shape) Continue reading »

Ever since my neighbor, who was a second mom to me, died suddenly when I was a kid I just thought life is short. And that you just suddenly die even if you are healthy.
This “hypothesis” was confirmed to me later on in college when a friend who looked super lean and as strong as an ox died of heart disease.
So I was sure that by 30 I will just die.
Now that I’m past 30, not dead, and with a baby on the way I feel I want to optimize as much as possible every second I have. For as long as I can possibly can. Continue reading »
