The Best (and Worst) of Biohacking | Melanie Avalon

Melanie Avalon’s podcast synthesises complex topics and brings them to life for her listeners.  

Her podcast episodes are a fascinating DEEP dive into the topic to elucidate the practical application and the pros and cons. 

We had a ton of positive feedback from my interview on her podcast.  Our Data-Driven Fasting Facebook Group exploded after she and Gin Stephens started raving about it all the time on their Intermittent Fasting Podcast

After binge-listening to her podcast with a wide array of fantastic guests, I had many questions for Melanie. 

It was great to get her on the other side of the interview mic for a rare video interview, including:  

  • How did you get interested in biohacking?  
  • Why did you start the biohacking podcast?  
  • How did you deal with imposter syndrome?  
  • How long did it take to feel like you owned the role?
  • You have experimented with a lot of different nutritional extremes.  What have you learned from each?  
  • What do you eat most often these days?  Do you identify with a particular dietary camp now?
  • What is “biohacking”?  How do you define it? 
  • Is there any free lunch in biology?  Or are we just trying to align our modern environment to align with our evolutionary biology?  
  • How can technology help us live in line with our evolutionary roots?  
  • What biohacks have you found most helpful?
  • What biohacks have you found least useful?
  • Supplements vs nutrients from food – what are the pros and cons of each?
  • What have you learned from tracking glucose and ketones?
  • What eating routine have you found that works best for you?   
  • What biohacks are you most excited about in the future?
  • How do you think big data and artificial intelligence will change the future of healthcare? 
  • What wisdom do you have when guiding someone to find the minimum effective dose of biohacking for them?
  • What are the pitfalls that you have encountered on your biohacking journey that you would recommend others avoid?  
  • What is the most exciting thing you learned from one of your guests that changed your life?
  • Who are your biggest inspirations in nutrition and biohacking?
  • How does someone find the balance between biohacking to live a better life vs living their life without overcomplicating it?
