Biohacking is all the rage, but if you’re not doing it correctly, you could wind up causing more harm than good. Overexercising, undereating, and eating too many of the wrong superfoods can have the reverse effect, causing nutrient deficiencies, weight gain, and cortisol depletion. Sometimes less is more, and by toggling our biohacking tools at the right time and intensity, we can get closer to the results we want.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dave Asprey, the “Father of Biohacking,” to discuss optimizing your biology in a way that’s sustainable, smart, and personalized to your uniqueness. Dhru and Dave talk about common misconceptions around superfoods, the dietary staples you need for weight loss, top protein sources, how certain plant foods can contribute to micronutrient deficiencies, why your body (not you!) is programmed to be lazy, how to overcome that laziness, and so much more.
