Aaron Rowe on Daily Lipids Tracking

Aaron Rowe is a biochemist and researcher. When he realized that his lifestyle was leading him towards a unhealthy future he designed and tested an intervention to lower his cholesterol through nutritional supplements. In this talk, filmed at the Bay Area QS Meetup Group, Aaron describes his testing methods and his results from testing for 12 consecutive days.

Aaron cites a 1939 study of daily cholesterol variation as inspiration for this project. If you’re interested you can find that paper here.

Chris Bartley on Understanding Chronic Fatigue

Chris Bartley worked on land mine removal as part of his undergraduate work, applying data collection and statistics to help with the process of removal. While on a trip for his research he contracted Reiter’s Syndrome. Even after he recovered he still felt like something was wrong. After consulting a physician he started tracking his wellness along with his diet and supplement intake. What follows is an amazing story about what Chris learned when he started applying his knowledge of statistics to his own data.

We’ll be posting videos from our 2013 Global Conference during the next few months. If you’d like see talks like this in person we invite you to join us in Amsterdam for our 2014 Quantified Self Europe Conference on May 10 and 11th.

Do You Take Magnesium?

This is a guest post from Ken Snyder of Quantified Self London. Thanks Ken!

I have personally found Magnesium to be a great tool in getting better sleep, although I believe a more common use is to help get more sleep. In any event, I thought it would be interesting to hear from the community IF and HOW they use Magnesium. The survey will only take 5 minutes if you can spare the time (and less than a minute if you’ve not tried Magnesium):
