My 5 Biohacking Lessons From 2018 & 2019

by Guest Author October 27, 2019 8 min read 0 Comments

Hey there, I’m Alex, from Alexfergus.com. In this blog post I’m going to talk about the most important biohacks I’ve learned over the last two years.

Because this is a guest blog post, let me first tell you a little bit about myself: 

I’ve been optimizing my performance for years if not decades. My journey started a couple of years ago when I was aiming to improve my sports performance. 

I competed in rowing and bodybuilding, for instance. At first, I was focusing on mainstream dietary and exercise strategies to enhance my results.

I ate a low-fat diet, for instance, with lots of grains, because such diets were recommended by governments all around the world. I also trained myself into the ground, sometimes exercising several hours a day.

One day I just crashed, had no energy left in the tank, and decided to take matters into my own hands. I mean: I was doing everything correct, so I should have gotten great results with the “eat less, exercise more” paradigm, right?

Over the years, I learned that most of my previous belief were flat out wrong. I began training (much) less, included many new foods into my diet such as bone broth, grass-fed beef, full-fat milk, butter, organ meats, and shellfish.

I also began focusing on domains that I previously didn’t have a second thought about such as sleep quality. 

Today I wear blue-blocking glasses several hours before bedtime, tape my mouth to improve my sleep quality at night, sleep on the ultimate Samina mattress, and use red light therapy to push my sleep over the edge.

And yet, throughout the years, I’ve also learned that I never stop learning. 

In this blog post, I’ll therefore cover the cutting-edge biohacks that I’ve become acquainted with in the last few years.
