Stimulants, Sex, Thyroid, and More…

Smart Life Forum – Stimulants, Sex, and Health

Smart Life Forum is an almost 20-year-old anti-aging nonprofit education group in Silicon Valley, and I’ve been on the Board of Directors for at least 5 years, and President for the last couple years. If you like The Bulletproof Executive and you live in the Bay Area, you should drop in to a meeting of SLF. This month’s meeting will be particularly awesome because my favorite biochemist/biohacker of all time, Steve Fowkes, author of the authoritative book on smart drugs, will be lecturing at the beginning, followed by Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren.

I like a lot of Dr. Tel-Oren’s recommendations – his basic point is that your sex hormones will work better if you’re healthy – although he is more tolerant of fructose in the diet than I am, as long as it comes from raw foods. I stand by my assertion that the healthiest diet you can get is a raw paleo diet, but few people (besides me) would test that out. I ate a raw paleo diet for 6 months, including raw chicken, beef, lamb, eggs, and butter.

I won’t be at this meeting in person (I landed back in Canada last night, returning from Manila), but I attend many Smart Life Forum meetings. You’ll meet a rare caliber of experts there. If you’re out of town like me, you can catch the meeting through live online streaming at

Thursday, 7:30pm. Be there or be square! (Steve Fowkes will come on at about 8pm, Dr. T at about 8:30)

If you want to lose weight, increase your energy, or sharpen your mind, there are shelves of books offering myriad styles of advice. If you want to build up your strength and cardio fitness, there are plenty of gyms and trainers ready to offer you their guidance. What all of these resources have in common is they offer you a bad deal: a lot of effort for a little payoff. Dave Asprey has found a better way.
