I am an air traffic controller in Vancouver,BC. I work a lot by choice and often feel fatigued when I get home after work. How can I tell if I am on the right track to bio hacking? Does it happen quickly or take a while to feel the effects?
Also, we went to 4 Barrel in San Francisco and had the best cup of coffee ever. We are going to roast our own now from Burman Coffee in Wisconsin.
I was wondering if you guys can talk about lowering blood pressure in one of your podcasts. I know a lot of people have this problem and they would greatly benefit from you it.
I’ve been running for a while now, and have recently discovered your blog. I see you recommend high intensity training instead of easier workouts. My theory has always been that if your workout hurts – you’re pushing too hard. Also, aren’t you worried that the high intensity will result in more injuries?
1. We hear about the 3s and the 6s all the time and what the ratio should be, but where does omega-9 fit into this equation?
2. Why the hate on sucralose (Splenda)? It’s the most natural tasting artificial sweetener, and I’ve seen no reliable science that would make me not want to use it. There are animal studies which use ridiculous amounts to obtain adverse effects and then there are some correlation studies, which frankly doesn’t prove a whole lot. I’m not convinced, as almost anything given at those levels would be toxic, like sodium. If I recall, we’re talking the equivalent of 10,000 packets per day.
3. Same with Aspartame really. I’ve seen nothing convincing, but I’m prepared to change my mind.
4. I’ve also started buying raw cheese from the same farm. I assume raw cheese is good, as it doesn’t have damaged caseins? Or is there more to the cheese making process that can produce bad proteins? What about cottage cheese? Is that closer to yogurt? Although yogurt is also made through a fermentation process, so I’m confused.
5. I love pork rinds, particularly with lots of fat on them, and I tell myself that it’s collagen and fat, all good. Am I deluding myself?
6. A couple of times I’ve made bulletproof coffee with virgin coconut oil (a spoonful) and both times I’ve felt nauseous afterwards. A coincidence or could there be a reason?
Dave: How do you “block the mercury from the fish” as you referenced in you May 25th, 2011 at 3:57 pm post? I love sushi, especially tuna. I also like swordfish and sea bass, but I am worried about the mercury.
