In today’s episode of The Daily Sweat Podcast, I’m chatting with Dr. Guy Arad, a functional training expert and master biohacker! We take a deep dive into biohacking: what it is, why we might want to consider it, and some popular biohacking techniques.

Key Points of Discussion

  • What exactly IS biohacking?
  • Finding your own individualized solutions
  • Understanding different stressors and their impact on our health
  • The critical role of mindset in health and fitness
  • Resetting our cortisol and insulin levels through biohacking
  • Setting yourself up for success through a morning routine
  • The benefits of intermittent fasting and who should NOT do it
  • Food as fuel – spiritually, physically and emotionally
  • The proper way to execute the ketogenic diet – using whole foods

Notable Quotables

  • “We are all unique and different, so biohacking is a science that allows us to experiment in different areas in our life in order to be the best version of ourselves in so many ways.”
  • “The subconscious mind can process millions of thoughts in a second- the problem is, we fit it around negative information.”
  • “For someone like me, who is 45, going on a treadmill for 40 minutes at the same pace is pro-inflammatory and I won’t be able to lose weight.”
  • “I don’t think breakfast is the most important meal, it’s really the kind of nutrients you are putting in your body and the timing of it.”
  • “Most of us will never get to the state of utilizing fat for fuel, but if done correctly and in conjunction with intermittent fasting, it can be a great tool.”
