Aggie is not your average biohacker; she’s a public figure, bestselling author, health coach and a TEDx Speaker. She’s been featured on TV and started the renowned Travel her Shoes blog over a decade ago, eventually leading her down the path of biohacking after realizing the toll constant travel can take on your health.

Aggie’s journey has led her to establish the Higher Self Academy, where she offers courses to help individuals, especially women, personalize their biohacking journeys. She’s also the host of the Biohacking Bestie podcast—make sure to check out our recent conversation on her show. 

I love the work Aggie’s doing so much, that I even wrote the foreword for her groundbreaking new book, Biohack Like a Woman, which is all about revolutionizing weight loss and biohacking specifically tailored for women.

In today’s episode, we delve into topics like fertility, understanding perimenopause, and exploring distinct biohacking recommendations for men and women. Aggie and I discuss why women must honor their cycle when trying new practices and the common challenges women face when under-eating calories and exercising. Plus, Aggie shares her valuable nutritional advice for women, including protein intake per meal.
