My experience with exogenous ketones

Theory to anecdote: I decided to find out for myself if ketones could, indeed, offer up the same amount of usable energy with less oxygen consumption.

Mental & Emotional Health

I don’t want to talk about it…

This week, I’m moved to share one of the most important books I’ve read, reread, and gifted to many friends

Exercise & Physical Health


I was struck how I was rooting for (and fascinated by) Kipchoge and everyone involved in the preparation and execution, but even more so I felt like I was rooting for us as a species. 

Preventing Chronic Disease

Does it help to know your coronary artery calcium score?

I read an interesting paper on fitness, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores from the Cooper Center Longitudinal Study. This paper looked at “generally healthy middle-aged men” and associations between their level of aerobic fitness, CAC scores, and risk for CVD. So why was this interesting to me (and by extension, should you care)?

Mental & Emotional Health

Comedy plus time…

So much of this doc really spoke to me, but two things, in particular, stood out.

Nutritional Biochemistry

Simulators, treating depression, and management of T1D with diet

For extra points, be sure to pronounce it correctly, it’s pronounced “roof,” not “ruff”

Medications, Supplements & Other Treatments

MDMA and zero LDL-C

Another interesting read is the “zero LDL-cholesterol hypothesis” paper

Mental & Emotional Health

The Joe Rogan Experience and exploring forgiveness

Why, exactly, is Tom Morello swimming to Catalina??

In part I of this post I will see to it (assuming you read it) that you’ll know more about ketosis than just about anyone, including your doctor or the majority of “experts” out there writing about this topic.

Mental models

The thesis of the book is, basically, that we have seen a shift in human nature from what Brooks calls the Adam II self (humble, inward-looking, “eulogy” self) to the Adam I self (ambitious, external, “resume” self).
