Discovering Complete Foods started me along a path that led to looking into the lesser nootropics and other bio-hacking techniques. HVMN are one of the fancier brands growing in that space, with a line of products and series of guides to help us tweak ourselves or optimise our lives (they’re a natural fit with Complete Foods). Their ‘HVMN Enhancement’ podcast usually makes for a great listen, with information about the present and future of human enhancement, health, entrepreneurship & tech in the bio-hacking space. It features industry thought-leaders, world-famous scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs.
And the March 5th episode has Chris Bair of Ketochow and documents his recent month long experiment in which he only ate the liquid food he produces and sells – but every week he switched the source of fat; trying coconut oil, macadamia nut oil and double cream to see how the different fats affected biomarkers such as LDL and HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and ketone levels.
In a moment of
pure madness genius he swapped in copious amounts of sugar during his last week. The results were, well, as expected, and it’s really interesting to hear him talk through the results of an interesdting N=1 experiment.
