“It’s the 50th episode of Bulletproof Executive Radio, which has now been downloaded more than 1.3 million times, and has reached #1 status on iTunes. It’s time to celebrate and say thanks, so in true biohacker style, here’s a brand new free iPhone app to help you upgrade yourself, along with an interview with the scientist who made it all happen.
The new iPhone app is called Bulletproof® Food Sense
and you’ll hear a lot more about it in today’s show, and you can read more about it in the full blog post to come. Thank you for your support for the show and the blog – I am humbled.
Today’s interview is with long time biohacker and founder of Sweetwater Health™, Ronda Collier. Ronda is putting her more than 25 years of experience in high tech to work at SweetWater Health™, where they are looking at the signal coming from the human heart, and instead of seeing beats per minute or simple heart rate variability, seeing a huge pool of big data just waiting to be analyzed using Ronda’s crazy advanced math skills. There is a lot more information in your heartbeat than you’d think – stress levels are just the beginning. By applying mobile health monitoring and stress management with medical research techniques, SweetWater Health is creating some very advanced, very easy to use biohacking technologies.
My experience as a bio hacker who used to weigh 300 pounds and really struggled with food cravings, is that every single person has a set of things in their environment or their food that makes them weak. SweetWater Health and Bulletproof Executive just partnered to create the free Bulletproof® Food Sense iPhone app to help you find your personal kryptonite by using the phone’s onboard sensors to detect your hidden food sensitivities.
You can also get an amazingly full-featured version of the app that works with a chest strap to measure and track your heart rate variability all day long and use complex algorithms to quantify your food, stress, and overall health.
This application does not compete with my friends at Heart Math who make the Inner Balance sensor, which you use to train your HRV for short periods, not track it all day. In fact, I’m on the advisory boards of both Heart Math and SweetWater Health. Both companies totally rock!”
