If you're reading this, the chances are that you're relatively interested in your health. You know, taking your vitamins, eating organic, hitting the gym, or some yoga here and there, right? Or perhaps you've chosen to make your health a top priority, and taken your lifestyle to the level of a legit biohacker? That's when things get exciting right? You know, all the fancy gadgets, exotic herbs, weird breathing techniques, and endless bottles of costly 'magic bullet' supplements. With each new device, pill, or practice, comes more guesswork, research, trial, and error, and let's face it- a grip of out-of-pocket expenses. And if you live in a big city, the toxic impact on your biology is even more significant, and thus so is the need for self-directed intervention if you want to achieve optimal health and well-being.
But what if 90% of your efforts were in vain? What if all of your self-diagnostic, or 'Dr. Google' tests were bunk? How do you ever know if you're spending your time and energy on the stuff that works?
Well, lucky for you our guest this episode has cracked the code of personal optimization. What makes his way of biohacking so efficient, when so many other approaches fail? Tracking. Testing. Quantifying your results. In fact, Bob Troia has become so proficient at the fine art of hacking himself that he's known all over the world as Quantified Bob. And quantify he does. Everything. Sleep, diet, exercise, gut health, hormones, nutrient saturation, stress levels, mood, and the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of just about every biohack known to man. As a long-time resident of New York City, Bob's had to perfect his detox and nourishment protocols to maintain optimal health, and he's generously joined the show to share his many coveted secrets with you.
If you're someone who wants to get into the quantified self scene at the novice level, this episode has got the goods for you. You're going to save yourself years of futile, newbie guessing games. But if you're already well on your way to the biohacking big leagues, Bob is going to blow your mind with his innovations to the practice, and share some powerful tips that will keep you busy for a long, long time to come.
If you have a friend that could use some insights into managing their health, pass this episode along to them. It might just peak an interest that could save their lives further on down the road.
