On September 23rd I headed out to Helsinki to attend the 2nd Annual Biohacker Summit. I chose the VIP option which included an upgraded dinner the evening before the event. After a very early start in Glasgow I flew to Helsinki via Amsterdam and arrived with a couple of hours to spare before the Upgraded Dinner.
The upgraded dinner was held at the ‘upgraded food lab’, Flavour Studio @ Teurastamo (The Butchery). About 50 people had booked to attend and it entailed us splitting into small groups, donning our aprons and cooking the dinner together. Our master chef was Sami Tallberg – who’s speciality is wild food. A small group of attendees had gone out foraging with him that morning and collected al lot of the ingredients for that evenings meal. Here’s the menu
Does your memory play tricks on you? Whenever I forget something I have this amazing excuse. I tell whoever is listening, “I’ve got a good memory, it’s just that it’s short.”
Your memory is an amazing thing. You can do almost anything with it. For starters you can delete stuff from it. For instance, when you have a bad experience you can repress it. You can distort it. If you recall the last time you had an argument you’ll notice something strange. You were right. Why is that strange? Because the other person thought they were right. And you can generalise. Or “make up” things about people. Let’s say you meet someone in an ill-fitting suit. His hair looks like it’s been brushed with buttered toast. You’re thinking, ‘Salesman.’ And you start to back off. Or you meet someone with hair down to his shoulders. Jeans down below his bum. Okay, you can fill in the blanks. read more →
We asked Graeme Stewart what it is he loves about Triathlons & Ironmans? Graeme was named 2014 Scottish Performance Coach of the year and has achieved 3 time Scottish Champion.
Like many British kids growing up in the 80s, I only every heard about triathlon on television. That’s not to say there was any coverage of triathlon on British TV which there wasn’t but rather there was a character Joel on the soap opera “Neighbours” that I watched every day when I got home from school and stuffed my face with crisps. read more →
I tried the protein fast recommended by Dave Asprey The Bulletproof Executive. The reasons to have a protein fast once per week is it allows your digestive system to perform ‘maintenance’. As you are not taking in protein you actually digest your own protein which is called autophagy. This may sound like a thing you don’t want to happen but actually it allows your cells to self repair, also your enzymes are able to clear out toxins and ‘cell debris’. Dave also says it can greatly improve your sleep quality as it improves your mitochondria function, as well as increase weight loss. read more →

There’s a few ingredients that are key to making Bulletproof Coffee. Of course the most important one is the coffee beans. Whats important about the beans is how they are produced? Upgraded Coffee beans are said to be free of moulds and toxins, and when you buy Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee beans you can be sure of the quality. However its not always that easy to get hold of these beans plus price is an issue especially when you are trying this coffee for the first time. When you are choosing an alternative bean you want to make sure a these 4 factors.
1. Is it organic?
2. How is it roasted?
3. Where is it grown?
4. Can you trust the supplier?
Not all coffee is equal and if you choose the wrong one this can have the opposite effect to what you are trying to acheive which is clear out brain fog, cut out the coffee crash and don’t get headaches.
