On a recent trip to L.A., I had a chance to sit down with my friends Max Lugavere and Crosby Tailor for an absolute geekfest jam-packed with our top tools, tactics, tips, and nutrition/training/life/spiritual/relationship “hacks” of late (including biohacking sex!) recorded as sort of a roundtable, each of us going one at a time, with plenty o' “rabbit holing” as we talk through all of our latest self-optimization strategies.

So who are these guys?

Crosby Tailor is a represented fashion model and graduated college football athlete turned biohacker and sugar-free dessert chef. Crosby believes that everyone is different, and therefore, not just one diet or lifestyle will work for the majority. Crosby has tried every diet fad from going vegan, the body ecology diet, hardcore paleo, and the alkaline diet, as well as super high fat ketogenic, and never felt completely balanced or satisfied, but there were things he absolutely loved from each lifestyle. So he decided to take bits of information that upgraded his life, from each of his favorite wellness mentors like Dave Asprey, Mark Sisson, David Wolfe, Charles Poliquin, Dr. Axe, and Dr. D'Adamo, among many more, and specifically “Tailor” his lifestyle with what resonated best to increase his overall vibration and quality of living. Crosby realized that no plan will ever be perfect, and that it's about playing the best hand possible from the cards we were given, accepting what is, and celebrating differences.

This would have never been possible if Crosby didn’t learn to intuit what he needed, explore the proper research, and embark upon a trial and error period of learning what worked for him and what didn’t, in order to further the positive development of his mind, body, and soul. Crosby is not a doctor, nor is he here to make certain health claims, but rather he seeks to share information that he has gathered over time, that might help you make your own best decisions for self-improvement.

Crosby is also the creator of Crosby’s Cookies' “Eat Dessert Burn Fat,” a sugar-, gluten-, and grain-free dessert company born from a labor of love. He hacked the dessert world and has come up with hundreds of healthy recipes for cookies, cupcakes, donuts, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, ice creams, and chocolates! Every recipe is boosted with superfoods and beneficial ingredients that serve a purpose for your health. Crosby hopes to take you back to the inherent pleasures that abounded before refined sugar took over.

Max Lugavere is a filmmaker, health and science journalist, and the author of the New York Times bestseller Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life, published in 8 languages around the globe. He is also the host of the #1 iTunes health podcast The Genius Life.

Max appears regularly on the Dr. Oz Show, the Rachael Ray Show, and The Doctors. He has contributed to Medscape, Vice, Fast Company, CNN, and the Daily Beast, has been featured on NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, and in The New York Times and People magazine. He is an internationally sought-after speaker and has given talks at South by Southwest, TEDx, the New York Academy of Sciences, the Biohacker Summit in Stockholm, Sweden, and many others.

From 2005-2011, Max was a journalist for Al Gore’s Current TV. He lives in New York City and Los Angeles. I have also podcasted with Max in the past on the following episodes:

    This question is for Ben.

    Would you please share the details of your Faraday bed canopy? What particular fabric (brand?) did you use, and who did you have make it for you?

    Thank you.

    The 5 Tibetan rights are cool but I believe they may have been over hyped by the guy who brought them to the west so he could sell shit. Tibetan yoga is no joke though, so check out the 9 cleansing breaths and 5 tsalung movements, both by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche on youtube.

  5. Jim says:

    I got the sleep steam app and can’t tell which one is pink noise. Can you tell me which one you play for pink noise? Thanks.
