Sample text

The different parts of your body also use ATP from your mitochondria for their own specific functions. Your heart, for example, uses its energy to pump blood to your brain and the rest of your body, and your brain uses its energy to think, learn, remember things, and make decisions. Of course, the extra mitochondria in the brain require lots of oxygen to create ATP, so if the mitochondria in the heart are not producing energy efficiently, your brain will suffer from a lack of energy before the rest of your body does.

In my work with clients and my own experience of hacking my (admittedly weak) mitochondria, I’ve identified five main brain weaknesses that manifest in slightly different symptoms, depending on the individual. The one thing all of these symptoms have in common is that they are tied to mitochondrial function. You may have one or two or all of these weaknesses. Sometimes it’s hard to tell, but it’s important to know where you’re starting from in order to get the most out of this program. Before I hacked my brain, I certainly suffered from all of these.

I was irritable and cranky, quick to anger, and I made impulsive decisions. But I kept pushing myself. My middle finger got an excellent workout thanks to my driving habits, but the rest of my body was bloated and out of shape. It felt like I had to work twice as hard as other people to get the same amount done. I was pushing my body’s accelerator all the way to the floor yet was somehow stalled in neutral, idling. Life felt hard because I knew I had more to give, but it just wouldn’t come when I asked for it.
