Welcome to my Weekly Roundup!
In one convenient post, you're about to discover the most important things I've noticed this week, including the latest news from the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking and anti-aging research, the top photos, videos and stories from this week, upcoming events and speaking appearances, giveaways, specials and a host of other things you may have missed.
New Discoveries Of The Week (NEW Weekly Roundup Feature!): Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Three weeks ago, I posted this video on Facebook in which I asked you if you wanted more insider tips and tricks based on new things I've been trying, books I've read, or new “biohacks”, tips, tricks, toys or tactics I've recently discovered.
You seemed to like the idea, so without further ado, here's my top three discoveries this week!
-The Gourmet Chocolate Brownie Mix from Diabetic Kitchen is rich, decadent and perfect for the holidays. Even better? This brownie mix contains no added sugar, no sugar alcohols, only 2 net carbs, is made with real ingredients and is high in fiber. I've been adding it to an afternoon cup of black decaf coffee, and of course, I also made an amazing mouth pleasuring batch of brownies with it that were, frankly, too good to be true. Discover it for yourself. Use discount code NEWFRIENDS to save 10% on your order + get free shipping on orders over $25!
–The Oak Meditation and Breathing app – From my previous podcast guest Kevin Rose, comes a great way to learn guided meditation easily in just 10-minutes a day. I've been meditating to the sound of distant rain, waterfalls, and a few of the other soothing background tracks. This one ranks higher than most of the other meditation apps I've tried. Worth a download and try in my opinion.
– KetoneAid – This stuff claims to be the “world’s first Ketone Ester drink”. If you've ever wanted to get your hands on a bottle of the super mysterious ketone esters everyone is talking about, this is your chance. This bumped my blood levels of ketones up from 0.5 to a shocking 8.0 in just 10 minutes. For those of you familiar with ketosis, that's pretty impressive. For anyone who doesn't know what that means, let's just say this is like rocket fuel for cognition, endurance on steroids, and definitely better living through science. This link will allow you access to the first shipment this coming March.

PSO-RITE™ is an amazing tool for getting into the hardest to reach places on your body and releasing your psoas muscle. The psoas muscle, the most complex muscle in your body, can be a major player in back pain, knee injuries and tight hip sockets and it is often the exhausted psoas muscle that limits your range of motion, as well as impacting digestion and bladder functioning.
