I'm not going to create a proper argument against what this guy is saying, but I get a really bad vibe from him. I'm happy for him for reducing weight and keeping an eye on health; but, the idea that a person can't live very healthy and strong without "supplements" and endless experimentation is just awkward.
A balanced and humble lifestyle and diet is all that we need. Like all animals. Yikes, what a Rogan experience.
To be clear, he doesn't say you need to take a bunch of supplements to be healthy, but he definitely does a lot of experimentation. That's what's so interesting to me. To be able to quantify things that aren't easily quantifiable.
I got myself a biofeedback machine to measure my stress levels and it's very interesting and counterintuitive. I changed the way that I physically respond to stress because of it.
He also makes the case for a sodium and saturated fat heavy diet which I thought was totally bad for you, but actually it turns out that more people are recommending that and the original research that said that sodium and saturated fats were bad were flawed.
He is definitely trying to market himself, because that's what he does for a living. He's a life coach for business executives.
It may turn out that he's full of it, and I'm trying to empirically verify some of these things in my own life to see for myself. It's only been a short while, but so far so good. If I die of a heart attack or something, then I'll try and warn yall.
