Best ever 2018? Want to keep up and get ahead? Health, Fitness, Nutrition Trends You Can’t Survive Without in 2018.
As I’m writing this, the last day of 2017 is slipping through my fingers with every second passing.
I’m looking back with you at another year of health, fitness, nutrition.
It has definitely changed a lot about how we look at health, fitness and nutrition, how we look at ourselves as bio-electrical conscious machines, that want to perform better but not quite ready to become robots or download themselves into computer or the cloud as a pure consciousness.
I’ve read many books on health, fitness, wellness, nutrition on all forms of biohacking this year.
I’ve listened to tons of podcasts.
I’ve done my own research and experiments.
I’ve trained almost every single day.
The science made amazing discoveries.
Food is getting better than ever, and it’s never been easier and more fun to eat healthy and delicious food.
Many things changed about us, about the world.
I’m looking back today and want to share with you a few trends, that are here to stay, trends you need to know about, to learn about, to start applying them in your life to look and feel better, to have more energy, to perform better on all levels, because guess what? Hustle is in fashion, outworking each other for the sake of making better sh*t and changing the world is THE THING to do on the weekends and every waking hour. And if you are not taking care of yourself, if you don’t know how to eat right, sleep right, exercise and biohack, and still are not into meditation, as one of my heroes says, “…you’ve already lost”.
Being your ordinary self is not enough anymore.
Being your best self, doing your best work – that’s the sh*t.
Let’s dig in and learn how you too can be better daily.

Why you should listen (to learn) –
- The effects of a low protein cyclic ketogenic diet beginning in midlife (12 months of age) in male mice. The result? Increased healthspan and improved memory. Dr. Verdin explains how the cyclic ketogenic diet decreased insulin, IGF-1, and mTOR signaling and decreased fatty acid synthesis, and increased PPAR-alpha (which promotes beta-oxidation and mitochondrial biogenesis in muscle).
- How this diet shares some qualities with fasting.
- Some of the possible reasons why the cyclic ketogenic diet created such a striking improvement in memory even when compared to younger mice.
- How beta-hydroxybutyrate, which is the major circulating ketone body during fasting and nutritional ketosis, may, in addition to being an energy source, regulate inflammation and gene expression by acting as a signaling molecule by inhibiting what are known as class 1 histone deacetylases (HDACs).
- How this inhibition of class 1 HDACs leads to the increased expression of notorious longevity gene Foxo3, which may help explain why mice given an exogenous beta-hydroxybutyrate ester had lower markers of inflammation and oxidative damage, which are physiological contributors to the aging process.
- The role of the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) in the aging process and how replacing declining levels (or preventing them from declining in the first place) may prove to be an important anti-aging strategy.
- Some of the reasons why NAD+ might be declining with age, its role in DNA damage repair via an enzyme known as PARP, and what the literature says about the NAD+ precursor nicotinamide riboside.
- How a special class of enzymes called sirtuins, also known to be activated by caloric restriction and caloric restriction mimetic resveratrol, is tightly correlated with the level of NAD+ and how this “energetic currency” rises in response to fasting.
- The role of the sirtuin enzymes in regulating mitochondrial function, neuronal functions, stem cell rejuvenation and why they may be important in delaying the aging process.
