The data revolution has begun. The knowledge you will gain over your body, your health, your performance, will explode in the next 5 years. Empowering you to make better decisions about your body and get the results you’re looking for, instead of just guessing or following the latest opinion fad in health or fitness or anti-aging.
The Quantified Body introduces you to the cutting edge in this trend – wearable devices, biomarkers, the latest lab tests, quantified self protocols, biohacking tactics, n=1 experiments and crowd science.
Guests on this show include scientists, lab technicians, practicing physicians, citizen scientists and others with insights and perspectives on data collection and use towards health management and optimization. This show has the mission to hunt down the best, most accurate, most accessible sources of data we can find – that provide the clearest insights – to make better decisions about our bodies – whether it be towards the goals of better health, disease resolution, higher performance or longevity.

Microbiome Labs: How Actionable Are They Today? In the Future?
Microbiome testing can be confusing: many companies, different technologies and a lack of standards make it hard to get actionable insights from the data. Find out how technologies and labs differ and what information is actionable from today's microbiome tests.
In this episode we continue our discussion of the microbiome that we started in Episode 9 and continued with Episode 37. Today we try to help you navigate the confusing field of microbiome testing companies and discuss the pros and cons of different technologies.
Examples and lessons learned from our own testing will give you an idea of how a microbiome ...
50: Machine Learning Applied to Functional Medicine – Christopher Kelly & Tommy Wood
Looking at an example of Machine Learning applied to functional medicine with the goal of helping athletes optimize performance. The question - with the help of artificial intelligence, can a 7-minute questionnaire identify physiological weaknesses and bypass the need to spend money on expensive lab tests?
This episode focuses on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. These topics are massively discussed in investor and entrepreneurial circles, as well as the media in general. There is a trickle of that starting to move into areas of health tech and health data. There is a lot of potential and discussion around what that ...
49: How Carbohydrate Intolerance Works – Robb Wolf
What is carbohydrate intolerance? Do each of us have a personal tolerance or intolerance of carbohydrates? Does this also vary by source of carbohydrate? Learn how evolutionary tools may explain appetite regulation and carbohydrate metabolism and offer ways to regain carb tolerance through diet and lifestyle modifications.
In this episode, we explore how carbohydrate intolerance works. We look at the evolutionary template (basically the Paleo template), neuroregulation of appetite, carbohydrate tolerance, insulin resistance and sensitivity, and the factors that drive all of these.
"Once the person is insulin resistant, particularly when they are heading down this road towards prediabetes and potentially diabetes, ...
Eran Segal & Lihi Segal: Is Your Glucose Metabolism Unique to You?
Is your glucose metabolism driven by your personal microbiome? Recent research reveals how the microbiome influences blood glucose, weight gain and weight loss. And how the new company, "Day Two", is using microbiome sequencing data to provide personalized nutrition recommendations.
In this episode we discuss how personal your blood glucose response and regulation is. We look at how glucose metabolism can differ from one person to another, and how it differs based on typical measures, such as the hypoglycemic index. Most research studies try to understand what a diet or food does to an average person. But the question is whether ...
47: Using Supplement Testing Results to Ensure Supplement Efficacy – Neil Thanedar
Recent investigations have shown supplements to not always contain what they say they do. Or at other times to have unwanted contaminants such as heavy metals. Learn to use 3rd party lab testing to select supplements that contain the active ingredients needed to provide the results you seek.
Sometimes on this show, we discuss using supplements as tools to get desired results. Examples in past episodes included curcumin, activated charcoal, NT factor, Greens powder, oxaloacetate and many others.
I've been aware for a long time that not all supplement products are equal in quality. For instance, if they actually contain as ...
