Bio-hacks are ways to improve your body’s performance in an very efficient manner.
1. Increase sun exposure! Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients and is needed for thousands of chemical reactions. If you can not get enough sun exposure make sure that you take a Vitamin D supplement.
2. High intensity exercise. Most people do not get enough exercise these days but those who do exercise exercise too often! Doug McGuff is one of the leading champions of high intensity and low frequency exercise. In all actuality 15 minutes of high intensity exercise to complete muscle failure is as or more effective than training for an hour every other day! This probably sounds like the complete opposite of truth to many people but this is now scientifically proven. This makes sense if you think about this biologically. Our bodies only build as much muscle as neccessary. Any exesice muslce that is not used costs enegry which was scarce during evolutionary era of our hunter gatherer ancestors. By training to complete muscle failure, your body literly thinks it is going to die. The human body simply can not tell the difference between fighting a saber tooth tiger and doing push ups to complete muscle exhaustion. By working out to complete muscle exhaustion, you are literally programing your DNA. Your DNA responds by creating larger muscle in case such a “life threatening event” happens again. The life threatening event is simulated of course but your DNA does not know that. Use your DNA to your advantage and discover High Intensity Low Frequency Training.
3. Eat a Paleo Diet! Your body is not programed to eat grains. They cause physical and mental damage. Most people should increase their intake of healthy saturated fats as well. A great resource that has helped changed my life in this regard is the website Mark’sDailyApple.com. Recently I have been doing a even more hardcore version than the Paleo Diet that has been around for over a hundred years called the Ketogenic Diet. For people that have the commitment to really improve their health and shed extra body fat, I strongly recommend the Ketogenic Diet.
