Just curious if there would be interest in discussing health data. I’m not a super biohacker but over the past couple years, since I got a Fitbit Charge 3 on sale at Costco, I’ve been accumulating data and adjusting (not very scientifically) my lifestyle for better health. I’m not a competitive athlete, so I don’t care to be faster or stronger than anyone except myself the day before. My goal is longevity, which I define as living as long as possible while maintaining mobility, strength, cognition, overall sense of well-being, and avoiding disease (I have family with neuro-degenerative disease).
Here’s what I’ve been tracking as of late:
Heart rate (Fitbit)
- During exercise and at rest
- Mainly trying to keep my weight up, as I have a tendency to lose weight
Activity (Fitbit, Strava for outdoor runs and rides, Wahoo for indoor cycling on my Snap)
- My current goal is 4 days per week, 45 minutes, at a low-to-medium intensity (HR of 140-150bpm)
Blood Glucose and Ketones (Keto-Mojo)
Intermittent Fasting (Zero)
- Nothing too interesting yet, just trying to fast for 12-14hrs per day and avoiding eating within 3hrs before bedtime
What do you all track, and what insights have you gained from the data?
