I recently spent an entire month in Estonia. It’s a small country near the border of Finland and was the site of the 2018 Mind Valley University. I was fortunate to be invited as a Key Teacher at the month-long event and I wanted to share with you a conversation I had with Vishen Lakhiani. Vishen had a few questions for me, and I was also able to answer a few questions from the audience. You can watch the whole interview and check out Mind Valley U here. In my chat with Vishen, you’ll discover: -How the remedies to many common maladies are right in front of us in nature if we just know how and where to look… 7:00 -How you can “hack” your environment to mimic that of our ancestors, even if you’re relegated to sitting in front of a computer screen all day… 9:30 -The research that shows how much exercise is “too much” for your own situation… 17:00 -What is my favorite “health hack?”… 24:00 -My thoughts on getting the best night of sleep possible… 29:00 -What are my thoughts on “nutrigenomics”?… 42:15 -The one change I made that took 17 years off my biological age… 47:45 -My best advice on how to look good in the buff… 59:30 -And MUCH more!

  1. This is one of the best podcasts from Ben….straight forward and to the point. Love it. Thanks

  2. Yeah olive oil is one of those tricky ones where it's a good one assuming it's actually olive oil and it's not spoiled already.

  3. Since coffee and saunas are said to raise your heart-rate, any thoughts on this sequence during a 23:1 fasting week:

    Morning:
    Mindfulness/Meditation (outdoor Sun Salutation or with full spectrum light)
    Coffee,
    Sauna
    8-min Tabata Workout / Endurance exercises for CVD/brain
    Cryo/Ice-Bath

    Late Evening:
    45-min Pre-Workout drink: Vitamin-C (50mg) + Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate (15g)
    6-30 min very slow weight lifting to failure
    Sauna,
    Dinner (Leucine rich),
    Cryo/Ice-Bath

    Also, since Tabata seems to be good only for cardio, what's a recommended short program for strength training? Keith Baar had a great TEDx on a workout routine.

  4. @ 53. Valter Longo's 5 day fast is not w/o food. It's about 750 kcal per day of which about half is fat. This is to make it more appealing to a lot more people and to make it safer.
    Protein is under a hundred calories and remainder is complex carbs. On this he has observed a 300% increase in circulating stem cell at the end of 5 days. Doesn't appear there has been enough testing to determine the optimum time and extent of stem cells production in all the organs
