Bio-Hacker – If there’s a new technology or diet out there promising to improve your life, chances are Ben Greenfield has tried it. Part of the Tim Ferriss human-guinea-pig experimentation circle, Greenfield is up on the newest wellness strategies long before they hit the mainstream, including:
- Getting blood tests, electrolyte levels, blood vitamin D level, and – yes – stool analysis to better customize his diet
- Chewing food 25 to 40 times per bite to lower his blood-glucose response to a meal
- Having kettlebells in his office so he can do swings every 30 minutes (standing desks are soooooo 2012).
- Wearing a continuous blood-glucose monitor. “I have a needle that goes into my arm.”
- Listening to binaural beats played through headphones to lull him into a deep-state sleep.
My favorite part of the interview is this quote: “Accepting who you are, with all your inherent flaws and imperfections, can be dangerous. Sometimes you set expectations for yourself that are too low.”Are you setting up expectations for yourself that are too low, MVMNT?
We don’t have to subscribe to all the latest crazy diets and life-hacks floating around out there. But we should be honest with ourselves about our current state. Is technology replacing the basics in your life? No phone or app can replace hard work, mindful eating, and a good night’s rest. So get to the basics, MVMNT, then throw technology into the mix!
