Health is on my mind.
In 2016, I’ll be starting an experiment with ketogenic living. I’ve been biohacking for many years but haven’t done anything this extreme. My 2016 begins with the premise that everything I’ve been taught about eating healthy is wrong.
For the last decade, I’ve been operating on the theory my weight and health can be manipulated by counting calories. I was under the impression that if I ate too much, all I needed to do was exercise a bit more to burn off the extra calories. Seems like I may have been wrong. Apparently, the kind of calories I’m ingesting is much more important that how many calories I’m taking in.
I’ve recently been introduced to a guy named Gary Taubes. He pisses a lot of people off by theorizing that a high-fat, low-carb diet is the way to go. That’s not what the medical authorities teach in the United States or Europe.
His books, Why We Get Fat and Good Calories, Bad Calories, convinced me that most of what I know about healthy eating is completely wrong. I think hundreds of millions of you might be in a similar situation.
The experiment begins on Jan. 1, 2016. If you follow me on social media, subscribe to my newsletter, or happen to be a part of my physical world, you’re going to be going along for the ride. If you’ve tried a ketogenic or some other low-carb diet, I want to hear from you.
