hi Eleanor! thanks for the comment
Serge Faguet

Thanks! I might start my own personal study. I have years of data (fitbit, myfitnesspal, dexafit, teloyears, myfitnesspal, mood journals…) and I’ve tried a lot of stuff (NAD+, lions mane, thyrosine, nootropics…). I’m not scared of trying new things. The problem is that there are so many combinations and it’s very difficult to measure how a new supplement/diet/routine affects you. I guess for women is even trickier because our hormones go through cycles.

That’s a good question. Honestly I don’t know, in the case of productivity and economic success men have more societal pressure than women (instead, we have pressure to be pretty and look young). With regards to health, women tend to be more concerned about healthy diet and fitness but don’t like to take shortcuts (drugs, etc.). I guess the reason might be that risk aversion is linked to testosterone levels. Another factor to consider is that we tend to assume that everybody is on internet is a male, maybe people using nicknames are women. Or people with male names are women (you avoid a lot of unsolicited dick picks if you pretend to be a man :P ). So, it’s true that this topic is not very attractive for women but I’m sure there are more than we think.

In any case, being the best version of ourselves should be everybody’s goal, regardless gender.

PS. I’m not sure if you’ve tried but it might be a good idea to take a food intolerance test. 90% of serotonin is produced in the guts, and its production drops if the food is not processed properly.

Like what you read? Give Eleanor Arroway a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
