The Biohacker Lifestyle

Recently, I met one of my friends who, I last recall, was quite invested in the processes of altering one's diet, environment and behavioral patterns, so as to improve the quality of life (think Andrew Huberman or, taken to the extreme, Brian Johnson, a billionaire spending $2M yearly to reverse aging). This refers to maintaining a Paleolithic, low stress (both biological and mental), back-to-basics type of living in current, modern, high pressure society (e.g. Singapore).

The Best Way to Cook Beans

Beans (also known as legumes) are an excellent source of protein and fibre, and are also one of the lowest GI (glycemic index) foods available. They are also relatively cheap.

However, legumes contain sugars known as galactooligosaccharides (GOS) which are non-digestible, and hence ferment in the gut. While they have benefits, such as being a prebiotic (stimulating the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut), the fermentation process can cause gassiness, bloating, flatulence and even nausea.

Nutrition and Health

I have been interested in nutrition from young, seeing as it affects not only weight, but clarity of thought, longevity and sleep among other things. Over here I have collated some of the research I have done over the years, which I have incorporated into my diet.

This page is continually updated as more studies and information develop.
