Meetups Last Week

Good friend and Chicago meetup organizer Mark Moschel wrote a stellar recap of their last meeting featuring talks on measuring body fat, adaptive resistance, and how one person spends her Friday nights. Below are a couple visualizations from the talks. Well worth a read.

Meetups This Week

There are three very interesting QS meetups occurring this week. Chicago’s event will be fitness focused, with talks on what it’s like to work out with a weight system that changes it’s resistance in real-time based on your performance and effort and learning from DXA body composition data. Shanghai will have a researcher talk from Preston Estep on using genetic data to improve health.

Ashland will have an amazing sharing of progress on current n=1 projects. Projects include exploring deep sleep with Beddit, looking at the difference between breath-based and blood-based ketone readings, and testing the effects of berberine on postprandial glucose rise. The last one is interesting is because it is placebo-controlled and double-blind, which can be difficult to pull off. I would love to hear more about his experiment design.

Meetups This Week

After a brief break to focus on the QS15 conference, Meetups This Week is back. So many of our best talks at the conference were first done at a local meetup, so it’s with great pleasure that I get to highlight all of the great QS groups that are getting together around the world.

Groups like Montreal, who will feature a talk by Francois-Joseph Lapointe on how his microbiome changed in response to sexual activity. They will also discuss how the Muse can help with meditation.

Manchester will discuss how “what to do with all that QS data” and Indianapolis will have a research talk on sleep with Dr. Steve Green.
