biohack your weight loss

There are a growing number of pseudo- and real scientists and biologists who are driving a type of breakaway practice, where both inquisitive individuals with no formal scientific background and, increasingly, a number of scientists with a keen interest outside their academic fields, are engaging in what has been termed do-it-yourself biology (DIY bio), garage biology or, more commonly, biohacking. This shift in thinking has spawned the rise of small labs and organisations that tinker with often outlandish ideas and fringe tech to see if they can make a breakthrough in areas such as cognitive thinking and memory, muscle gain and, yes, weight and fat loss. “ONCE I DID THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT MY DOCTORS TOLD ME, I DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED MY HEALTH”Abel James of fatburningman.com A BETTER YOU In the area of self-improvement, there…

stephanie loane dippenaar

Stephanie Loane Dippenaar believes that people tend to stereotype the overweight as lazy, untidy, listless and uninterested, but sometimes the underlying reasons run much deeper. For Stephanie, her battle with ballooning weight began as a result of a medical mistake, which was made worse by her circumstances. “While I always had ‘puppy fat’, as my grandmother called it, I gained most of my weight after I was placed on the wrong type of anti-depressant following my parents’ death in 2006,” she explains. “My depression and anxiety were made worse by my weight as it resulted in low self-esteem.

As a result my weight continued to creep up, seemingly on a daily basis.” Geraldine recalls standing in front of the mirror, pinching the fat all over her body as tears ran down her cheeks. “My weight situation…
