Man stunned after trying out biohacker’s $2 million lifestyle to get 18-year-old’s body

Man stunned after trying out biohacker’s $2 million lifestyle to get 18-year-old’s body

Bryan Johnson claims to have the biological age of an 18-year-old but has a very intense lifestyle

Unless you’ve not been blessed by a glow up, the thought of looking like our 18-year-old selves is a bit of nightmare.

That youthful, acne-ridden skin and our lanky bodies? I’m happy to be on the other side of it.

But I guess as we do get older, the thought of looking like our teen selves again probably becomes more appealing.

And this bloke is trying to do just that by following a biohacker’s $2million lifestyle.

Yeah, slightly unrelatable but absolutely mad to attempt.

Bryan Johnson has an ‘age-reversing lifestyle’, which includes using a ‘Blueprint diet’.

The 46-year-old tech titan has this goal of living forever and earlier this year swapped blood with his 17-year-old son.

Claiming to have the biological age of an 18-year-old he lives his ‘Project Blueprint’ with a team of 30 doctors.

Johnson apparently consumes 80 vitamins and mineral supplements a day alongside his 1,977-calorie diet.

Bryan Johnson's gruelling regime involves downing 80 vitamins and mineral supplements every day, alongside a 1,977-calorie diet.

Each month the American has 70lbs of mushed veggies as well as almond milk, walnuts, flaxseed and berries.

Plus he aims to exercise for at least half an hour a day, hits the sack at precisely 8.30pm every night, lasers away any skin sun damage, zaps his pelvic floor muscles with electromagnets, and even ‘placates’ the vagus nerve (which controls stress) with a clip-on gadget.

And 23-year-old Andrew Boyd attempted this in a 75-day journey on YouTube called ‘Project Andrew’.

The American managed to lose about six pounds, had an average 95 per cent sleep score each week.

Considerably younger than Bryan, and without the same millions of dollars, Andrew made a few tweaks.

He used recipes from Bryan’s site and picked-out vitamins that best suited his needs – like drinking ‘The Green Giant’ of water, chlorella powder, creatine, collagen peptides, cocoa flavanols and Ceylon cinnamon.

The lad spent about $112.34 a week on food and supplements.

Saying in the video he felt ‘incredibly focused and energised’, Andrew lost almost 30 pounds on the diet.

“Blueprint is not about the exact diet, it's not about the exact exercise protocol. It's not about red-light therapy or a bedtime routine or about skincare,” he explained.

“At its core project, Blueprint is about using measurement and data to back up health choices.”

However, Andrew did notice some issues – like how Bryan has a calorie deficit yet has to supplement testosterone.

“To me, this just doesn't make a lot of sense. I think it's probably better to correct a problem with diet than to introduce exogenous hormones."

And he points out that although he saw many reasons the diet was worth it ‘prioritizing your health to the level that Bryan Johnson does is extremely hard’.
