Last week we brought you the first of four episodes from Tim Ferriss’ phenomenal Building the Perfect Human fireside chat. Part One focused on turning back the clock on aging, tracking the human body, and how medicine will evolve in the next 20 years.
This week’s episode continues the conversation. In classic fireside-style, our CEO Jim Kean, best-selling author Tim Ferriss, and Dr. Justin Mager go on wonderful tangents and side-stories but hold on to the central theme throughout: personalized peak performance.
Specifically, tune in this week to learn about: calorie restriction, antioxidant cycling, food allergies, using whole foods to heal, the master regulatory gene, mitochondria and microbiome, and performance enhancement for the future.
Another great month at WellnessFX! We had an awesome Fireside Chat with Tim Ferriss and Dr. Justin Mager, we opened up in Michigan, and we were named one of the top health apps by Greatist.
Most importantly, we’ve continued offering awesome services to our members. We take feedback very seriously and are grateful to have such a smart, vocal community. All feedback is shared with the entire WellnessFX staff, from engineers to bloggers to even the CEO himself. This encourages everyone to push towards great new ways of putting healthcare back in the hands of the patient. As a bonus, it also encourages and reminds us of WellnessFX’s awesome impact!
Tim Ferriss is a best-selling author, dedicated quantified-selfer, and will most likely be tracking all aspects of his body for the rest of his life. He recently joined WellnessFX CEO Jim Kean and Dr. Justin Mager in San Francisco to talk about all he does to stay young and slow the aging process. People traveled from all over the West Coast just to hear Tim’s hard-earned wisdom and, as one audience member put it, it was more than worth it!
Jim Kean opened up with the question: In 20 years, I’m willing to bet you’ll look the same. How will you do it? An awesome conversation followed.
If you weren’t able to make it out, don’t fret! We had our cameras ready to go and captured the whole talk. Get instant access to what Tim thinks about joint health, hormone levels, optimize performance verses longevity, tracking your biomarkers, and deciphering your diagnostics.
Morning workouts. Sets and reps. Mile markers. Best times. Pushing yourself to the limit. Pushing your limit.
All connotations with the word ‘training.’ Finding out how far the body can go and then taking it there and further again . . . and again . . . and again.
But that’s only half of it. Athleticism isn’t just muscles flexing and extending, coordination of movements, and pushing for more speed. On a cellular level, the body is also converting fuel into energy to support these processes. So shouldn’t we train that system, too?
If you’re an avid reader of our blog, you might have noticed that we have a special place in our hearts for the Paleolithic Diet. Not only has many of our staff adopted the diet, but we’ve also seen our member’s numbers change as they’ve cut out the carbs, chucked the processed foods, and switched to grass-fed meats.
Whether or not you’re still skeptical of this way of eating, you can’t deny the Paleo Diet, based on the way humans originally ate, has become wildly popular. With popularity comes misconception and confusion, so the people over at Medical Billing and Coding recently released an informative infographic on the diet’s origins, little known facts, and which foods are allowed. It’s so good we just had to share it! You’ll find it at the end of this post, but first we wanted to highlight a few of the key take-aways.
