Man spends £1.5k a month biohacking body to try and live a longer life

A lad is spending a whopping £1,500 a month in an attempt to try and live longer and says he’d even consider freezing himself, if it meant he could come back in the future. Has this guy not seen how things are going with the world?
Leon Kurita-Goudlock, 36, is into ‘biohacking’ - or upgrading your body - and says he’d love to live forever but failing that he wants to power his way into old age.
Leon, who was born in the US but now lives in London, said: “I would like to live forever.
“My mum died when she was 70 of cancer and my dad died of cardiovascular issues when he was 86 this year.
“The last 20 years of their lives were a complete misery, they were taking care of each other, they both had cancer and other diseases such as diabetes, heart failure, heart attacks and could barely walk.
“At that point, why are you alive? There is nothing sadder than carrying your own parents up the stairs and giving them sponge baths.”
Leon, who takes up to 60 pills a day, says there are five levels to biohacking, starting with the fairly normal fitness and fasting to level five, which involves biological alterations.
Leon starts his day between 4am and 5am, and does a bit of meditation before heading to the gym.
Five days of the week, he consumes between 1,500 and 1,800 calories a day between 6pm and 9pm and fasts for the rest of the day.
Leon said: “I take 60 pills a day and spend a few grand every month on supplements.
"I do red light therapy once a day for 45 minutes to decrease the aesthetic stages of aging.
“It can take a while and won’t be a quick fix Benjamin Button solution, but it can reverse the aging process.“
Dad-of-one Leon alongside his diet and exercise regime uses cryotherapy - sitting in freezing cold tank pumped full of liquid nitrogen - and takes ice baths.
And if that’s not extreme enough for you, he also has ‘colon hydrotherapy every six months- this is where they stick a water tube up you’re a** and clean your colon’ - lovely.
Leon says the final stage of biohacking is the future - and he’s excited about how it might look.
“We’re not there yet but we expect it to be between 2040 and 2050,” he said.
“Exciting times are ahead.
“Prosthetics will become more advanced than biological limbs, there might be eyeballs that can see through walls and arms that could smash through concrete pillars.
“Legs will run faster and jump higher. People will voluntarily replace their limbs with prosthetics.
“If it’s safe and not going to hurt you- why would you not- it will just make It more fun to be alive?”
“I would sign up to have my body frozen in the hope they can bring me back in the future.”
