a longer, healthier, and happier life involves vegetables, exercise, sleep, and vitamins And unlike most roads in the US, there s not a single McDonalds or Starbucks along the wayThe main thesis of this book is the human race is pretty damn close to crafting technologies that will overcome our biological shortcomings and allow us to live forever as machine enhanced androids stuffed with nanobots However, we still need a few decades to figure this stuff out, so if you stuff your face with meatshakes, eclairs, and potato chips, you and your clogged arteries will just miss the immortality boat and you ll go down in history as one of those fat fools who could ve had thousands of years of interesting things to do but just had to have another Pringle If you ve already read Fantastic Voyage, much of this will be repetitive However, whereas Fantastic Voyage focused on providing evidence that immortality might be on our horizon and arguing that a few small lifestyle changes might help you one day join the ranks of the androids, Transcend is the How To guide of exactly those changes should be From baseline testing to supplementation, nutrition, and exercise, with this book s help you can be a pill popping, vegetable chomping gym rat and future android in no time Much of the nutrition and exercise info can be found in Fantastic Voyage, but I bought this book mostly for the updated info on supplements and the thorough discussion of good baseline tests to run what s the point of trying to keep your machine well oiled if you never check the gauges.I suspect I m the only human being below the age of 50 who will read this book or who thinks about his aging 22 year old body , so I ll generously offer a CliffNotes version of the book for any young lad or lass passing over this review Drop your candy, packaged snacks, and soda habit yes, cold turkey is quite effective and you ll be fine in a week Start eating vegetables, beans, nuts, fish, lean meats, eggs, and fruits just go wild on the veggies seriously, eat as much as you want but generally just eat less calories caloric restriction is the most well established current method of extending lifespan Exercise daily sports, jogging, swimming, alligator wrestling, whatever keeps you excited enough that you can do it for 30 60 minutes Add some strength and flexibility training 3 times week should be enough for good hormonal health and stress relief Sleep well and regularly amount varies by person but if you need an alarm to wake up, that s a good sign you re not sleeping enough Have sex or masturbate 2 3 times a week not that you need the encouragement, but it s good for your hormonal health Take a multivitamin, fish oil, and vitamin D Take vacations, talk with friends and family often, get a hobby, try meditation, and make time for the things you enjoy all work and no play makes Jack a depressed, diabetic heart transplant candidate Get periodic physicals and nutritional tests to ensure all of the above is actually doing something Congratulations If you do all of the above, I look forward to mind melding, exploring augmented reality, and not having diabetes with you in our android futures If not, I m sorry You will die The book has a lot of information on supplements and behaviors that might be useful in extending life However, I ve come across two news releases in the past few days which have denounced the value of supplements, cautioning that our supplement obsession could actually be harmful One study was a meta analysis of the effects of Vitamin D for bone health in seniors It concluded that there is no benefit at all from Vitamin D Another study was on multivitamins, again a meta analysis, and it co The book has a lot of information on supplements and behaviors that might

that anyone who takes 250 vitamins per day, as he does, is a nut case.The authors would have done well to have omitted the amateur science fiction dialogue I ve read several books on fitness and nutrition and this has been one of my favorites The basic premise is that medical technology is advancing so rapidly that if you can live long enough to reach the major breakthroughs of the next few decades, you can live forever.Although their predictions for immortality seem quite a bit too optimistic for me, it s still very interesting The majority of the book is about how to stay healthy and

for an older audience probably someone in their 60s is the target audience I m 27 and most of the charts and recommendations didn t even begin until age 30 Regardless, they give excellent advice for staying healthy and I intend to implement a number of new ideas
