Nicholas Manolakos on Twenty Years of Self-Experiments

Nicholas Manolakos is a programmer and avid reader who has been self-tracking for twenty years. He’s recently been improving his left-right body balance, and can write proficiently with both hands now. In the video below, he talks about many of his experiments, including optimizing cognitive performance, managing anxiety, introducing complexity, dietary experiments and fasting – interestingly, one of the things he discovered is that fasting and giving blood improved his cognitive performance. (Filmed by the Toronto QS Show&Tell meetup group.)

      I couldn’t find it on your blog. I also had trouble posting comments there. I would like to ask you about some of your experiments if you have time. Maybe you could list contact info on your website?
