Biohacking, nootropics, and the notion of optimizing one's human performance are on a rapid rise. Nootrobox founders Geoffrey Woo and Michael Brandt are some of the foremost thinkers in this space, and they are here to have intellectual conversations that will make you THINK every Monday.

Whether it's through diet, exercise, nootropics, or cutting-edge biotechnology, there’s tons of levers we can pull to improve our health and performance. Siim Land, a biohacker and high-performance coach, has been experimenting with these levers much of his life, recently sharing his knowledge and experiments through his Youtube channel. While he has dabbled in many biohacks, his bread and butter interventions (or should we say just butter) are following the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting.

What do keto and IF have in common? One of the main end goals of the two interventions is ketosis - a physiological state in which ketones are being burned as fuel.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • The intuitive “feeling” of ketosis and how you may not need to rely on ketone monitors all the time as you become more experienced
  • What changes in biomarkers like IGF-1 might mean when eating high-fat
  • What is okay to consume when following keto or intermittent fasting
