New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– Article I'm Reading
“Why time management is ruining our lives“. As a self-professed productivity addict, this article struck near and dear to my heart. Here's a snippet:
“The quest for increased personal productivity – for making the best possible use of your limited time – is a dominant motif of our age. Two books on the topic by the New York Times journalist Charles Duhigg have spent more than 60 weeks on the US bestseller lists between them, and the improbable titular promise of another book, The Four Hour Work Week, has seduced a reported 1.35m readers worldwide. There are blogs offering tips on productive dating, and on the potential result of productive dating, productive parenting; signs have been spotted in American hotels wishing visitors a “productive stay”. The archetypal Silicon Valley startup, in the last few years, has been one that promises to free up time and mental capacity by eliminating some irritating “friction” of daily life – shopping or laundry, or even eating, in the case of the sludgy, beige meal replacement Soylent – almost always for the purpose of doing more work.”
It's a good read. Will take 10-minutes-ish (LOL).
– Way I'm Learning New Kettlebell Moves
Primal Swoledier Kettlebell Course: Sick of kettlebell same ol', same ol' swings, goblet squats, snatches? Allow me to introduce you to kettlebell flow, by Eric Leija (AKA “Primal Swoledier” on Instagram – with some great, entertaining flow videos on his Instagram channel). This has created the king of kettlebell courses, in which you'll learn basically the kettlebell equivalent of barbell complexes and dozens of new moves that target full-body fitness. I'm enjoying the heck out of this one. Click here to try it out.
– The “Fasting Mimicking Diet”
You may be familiar with Prof. Valter Longo, author of “The Longevity Diet” and the scientist who made popular the fact that you can experience significant improvements in health and longevity by simply reducing – a few times a year – your total daily calorie intake to about 40% of what you'd normally eat. It's called the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD(R)), and a company called “L-Nutra” has actually systematized his diet into a “done-for-you” plan called ProLon. It's slick. You get one big box to your house and it has every meal you need for each of the 5 days. Couldn't be easier. And the meals taste pretty good too, not like the packaged, processed stuff you'd expect. Kudos. Click here to order a kit to see what I mean, and use code: BEN25 for $25 savings.

::: Special Offer From Docere Clinic, Where I Underwent a Full-Body Stem Cell Treatment :::
At Docere Clinics I was heavily sedated for hours for one of the single most potent biohacks I have ever experienced, essentially a “Full Body Make-Over” with stem cells as an attempt to replenish all the moving parts of the musculoskeletal system with stem cells and signaling proteins.
Harry Adelson, a naturopathic doctor, opened Docere Clinics in Salt Lake City in 2002 and from day one, his practice has been 100% regenerative injection therapies for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. In 2006 he incorporated platelet-rich plasma and ultrasound-guided injection into his armamentarium, in 2010, bone marrow aspirate concentrate and adipose-derived stem cells, and in 2013, fluoroscopic-guided injection (motion X-ray). Since February of 2010, Dr. Adelson has performed over 4,000 bone marrow and adipose-derived adult stem cell procedures, placing him among those most experienced in the world with the use of autologous stem cells for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. Listen to my in-depth podcast with Harry to learn much more about their services and approach. Click here to listen and click here to learn more about their offer.
::: Avoid Magnesium Deficiency with JigSaw Health :::
My brilliant friend, Thomas Delauer, recent guest on the very popular episode “Magnesium Supplementation: Everything You Need To Know About Dosing Magnesium, Timing Magnesium, Forms Of Magnesium & More!” is on the scientific advisory team for a company called Jigsaw Health. In his position there, Delauer insisted on performing a peer-reviewed study and really focused on getting it published in a reputable science journal about if magnesium is really absorbed and whether JigSaw's form of magnesium, MagSRT™, is actually absorbed.
MagSRT™ was evaluated in The Scottsdale Magnesium Study, a placebo-controlled, human clinical trial of 91 participants. MagSRT™ is now the only time-release magnesium supplement with a peer-reviewed clinical trial. MagSRT™ is a form of magnesium malate about which you can learn much, much more on their website and in my episode with Thomas. If you are experiencing any symptoms of magnesium deficiency, I recommend you try this form out. Apply code: GREENFIELD10 at checkout to save.
