Rank #1: The Application of Intermittent Fasting in Medicine ft. Jason Fung || Episode 61

Podcast cover
Read more

Intermittent fasting activates many biological pathways in the human body, namely autophagy, ketosis, and cellular repair. These effects could be just what many patients need to reverse diabetes and overcome obesity, and forward-thinking doctors have taken note.

One such doctor is Dr. Jason Fung, who is a pioneer of intermittent fasting in the clinical setting. He returns to the program after first appearing 2 years ago, and we both agree that we have seen the practice soar to popularity, in both culture and medicine, during that time. 

We discuss the similarities of the end goals of intermittent fasting and the ketogenic diet, the hacks one can use during a fast and when they should use them, and how fasting can be the cure for the underlying root cause of Type 2 diabetes.

Rank #2: The Research Behind Ketones ft. Dominic D'Agostino || Episode 29 (Pt. 1)

Podcast cover
Read more

If you've been keeping up with the recent emergence of more biohackers and athletes looking to optimize their performance and health by utilizing ketones, you know that the research behind this fuel source has been increasing steadily. As the data grows thanks to the hard work of talented and intelligent researchers, so does the proof of the benefits brought by being in ketosis. 

One such talented researcher in the space is Dominic D'Agostino, who's primary focus is developing and testing metabolic-based therapies, including ketogenic diets, ketone esters, ketone supplements and metabolic-based drugs. Dominic, in true biohacker form, often performs various n=1 tests on himself with ketone supplements, namely ketone salts and esters. As Geoff digs into Dominic's lifestyle as a ketone researcher and his scientific findings, Dominic drops countless nuggets of knowledge regarding the science and research behind ketones. Not only has ketones showed improvements in cognitive and physical performance, but Dominic is also on the cutting-edge of researching the potential anti-anxiety properties of the fuel source!

Rank #4: Intermittent Fasting When Stressed & Understanding Blood Sugar Spikes · #118 ft. Dr. Molly Maloof

Podcast cover
Read more

Feeling stressed out? Your metabolism may be sharing the burden.

This episode, featuring returning favorite Dr. Molly Maloof, revolves around stress.

An essential facet of human function, how we perceive and respond to the stressors in our lives is key for our well-being. It’s not all simply in your mind, and even if the source of a stress IS mental, there can be physical and metabolic downstream effects.

Intermittent fasting is an example of direct physical and metabolic stress. Yes, while we are huge advocates of fasting & its many benefits, it is important to understand this nuance.

That teases out a question...should you still fast if you’re under heavy stress?

Speaking from personal experience, Dr. Maloof provides interesting insight into when it may be time to take a stress break from fasting. In addition, Geoff & Dr. Maloof chat about nutritional periodization to train your metabolism, continuous glucose monitoring and how to interpret different glucose spikes, and the importance of mitochondrial function.

Rank #5: The "Grinder" Movement ft. Tim Cannon || HVMN Enhancement Podcast: Ep. 43

Podcast cover
Read more

Biohacking is an umbrella term for the passion and mission to enhance and improve upon the human body, often with a hacker-like ethos. One arm of this comes in the form of "grinders", a growing collective of biohackers whose expertise lies in functional body modification (usually with electronic hardware) that extends their human capabilities. 

Episode 43 features Tim Cannon, a human host of multiple implants including RFID's (radio-frequency identification devices) and magnets. His interest in being open to the idea of human enhancement stems from adolescence, when playing role-playing video games (where you are free to build up your character to your own liking and continually level up to become more powerful) made him wonder "Why can't we do this to ourselves?" 

Some years later, and Tim is in the midst of a movement that pushes citizen science forward and in the process of creating an implant (named Northstar 2) that has a variety of functions such as a built-in glucose monitor and gesture recognition. All arms of biohacking share one commonality: Bringing the power of personal health into your hands through open education and science-based experimentation.

Geoffrey Woo and Tim discuss his experiences with implants and the challenges and risks attached to being a grinder, the differences between the medical field and biohacking, and a host of community questions! Listeners asked Tim what he believes the most popular consumer augmentations will be in the near future, why he chose to invest in implants than wearables, and what measures are taken to ensure safety when implanting a device with a battery into a fellow grinder.

Rank #6: An Alternative View of Cancer Treatment ft. Thomas Seyfried || Episode 27 (Pt. 1)

Podcast cover
Read more

Geoff sits down and has a 1:1 conversation with Professor Thomas Seyfried, a renowned and controversial researcher who authored "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease". 

Cancer has generally been considered a genetic disease since its inception, but Professor Seyfried fights against that view and argues that it is a metabolic disease. Encouraging doctors to look into metabolic treatments as the first method to combat cancer cells, Seyfried may have a point. Metabolic treatments include caloric restriction, fasting, and ketogenic diets...all of which Seyfried speculates have the ability to help the body and kill off cancer cells. There are certain bodies of research showing that cancer cells thrive on sugars and amino acids, which metabolic therapies have the potential to control. Could cancer truly be a metabolic disease?

Biohacking, a phenomenon with roots all over the country, has fiercely taken over the competitive tech world of Silicon Valley. Executives are taking nootropics to gain the extra edge they need over their competitors, entrepreneurs are fasting to stay clear-headed as they accelerate company growth, and even everyday joggers are tracking their footsteps and making micro-adjustments to their diet and training to beat their PR.

Rank #10: Creating Healthy Processed Food ft. Cameron Sepah || Episode 42

Podcast cover
Read more

Meal replacement drinks, shakes, and powders (like the popular Soylent) have taken the tech world by a storm. There's a huge and proven market for people who just don't have the time to have a well-balanced meal and would rather rely on a packaged drink that provides them the nutrition of a complete meal. Although largely supported by its users, there has recently been an increased demand for a meal replacement that makes its macros even more healthy...a keto-friendly version.

Episode 42 features Dr. Cameron Sepah, the creator of the world's first nutritionally complete ketogenic meal replacement Actualize.  A practicing clinician and contributing academic, Cameron has a unique background where he has dipped his toes in many areas of medicine, science, and tech. He was a founding team member of Omada Health, a behavioral change program that used the power of technology to help a large number of people overcome diabetes and obesity. Cameron's new pursuit, a keto-friendly version of the many meal replacements you see on the market, is aiming to change the view of processed food as being wholly unhealthy.

Geoffrey Woo and Cameron discuss the relationship between mental health and metabolic disease, how modern mainstream culture is pushing unhealthy practices, and the recent PURE study that detailed the mortality rates of people who ingested either more carbs or fats.

Rank #11: mTor Signaling & Cell Growth: Targeting via Ketogenic Diet & Intermittent Fasting || #109 ft. Dr. Keith Baar

Podcast cover
Read more

mTor…mechanistic target of rapamycin. What is it?

We reference mTor frequently on our podcast, particularly when we discuss fasting or keto and their potential for extending health & lifespan.

mTor is a pathway that helps controls cell growth. In the most simplest terms: When you have high mTor activation, you promote growth in the body. When you have low mTor activation, you promote repair and maintenance.

mTor is sensitive to the nutrients we consume (especially protein and carbohydrate), so by controlling our diet, we can control mTor. This is an exciting area because a lot of people think mTor plays a role for longevity & metabolism. The ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting are natural ways to target & regulate your mTor.

Dr. Keith Baar, a professor of Physiology at the UC Davis Medical School, is an expert on mTor and muscle growth. This is a valuable conversation for anyone interested in mTor and strategies to control it, and why non-tissue specific approaches like rapamycin might have problems.

Welcome to Part 1 of Episode 25 of the THINKING Podcast!

Geoff sits down with Brianna Stubbs, a British rower who has achieved numerous accomplishments, including being the youngest person ever to cross the English Channel in a rowing boat...at age 12. Not only is Brianna a full-time athlete who won Great Britain a gold medal at the 2016 World Rowing Championships, but she also studied rigorously at the prestigious Oxford University. She went on to become a respected researcher in the space of ketones, an alternate energy source for our bodies that burns fat instead of glucose. 

Geoff and Brianna discuss her athletic and academic background, where Brianna shares how she managed her formidable lifestyle. She once was finishing up a science lab at school when she remembered it was the time she was supposed to be at the gym. Instead of giving up and standing by idly, she started doing squats in the middle of the class whilst monitoring a rat heart. Now that's dedication!

Have you ever tried memorizing and recalling the exact order of 59 decks of cards randomly shuffled together? Our guest this week not only attempted this incredible feat of brain power but succeeded in doing it, breaking the World Guinness Record for "Greatest Memory".  Episode 41 features Dave Farrow, a master of memory and PR strategies. Due to a difficult and formidable childhood filled with health problems and near-death experiences, Dave began to fall behind on his academia and had little help from outside resources. Forced to take matters into his own hands, Dave explored behavior modification approaches, such as creating specific memory techniques that were tailored to combat his ADHD and dyslexia. His determination for self-learning and cognitive improvement expanded to becoming a two-time Guinness World Record holder for memorizing and reciting 59 decks of playing cards all randomly shuffled together. Get this, he was allowed to only see each card once with zero repetition.  Geoffrey Woo and Dave discuss various memory tips and tricks (one is a HIIT version of mental training), the importance of PR and its impact on a business' success, and the rise of mental games as a serious sport.
