Carolies Eaten = Calories Burned + Fat

Unlimitix has delved deep into the science of nutrition and with this article, I plan to debunk several myths around how we gain or lose weight. The science behind this phenomenon is fairly conclusive, suggesting a set of very clear rules to follow…


A Neurological and Cognitive Viewpoint

Our brain is an incredible phenomenon. Some neurologists assume that overall, we have understood about 2% of neurological processes. Indeed, most of what we know about the brain is rudimentary and needs years, decades or even centuries of research to be fully explored. …


Why are some of us more successful than others?

Unlimitix, as a scientifically inclined group has to acknowledge the role of luck in success. Yet, it is just as important to mention that after filtering luck out of the equation, there are still notable differences in people’s individual success functions. What are the other factors? And are those in…


Unlimitix deciphers the science of brain engineering further

Some small changes in our lifestyle, such as working out more, getting deeper and longer sleep, and being more curious can play a big role. In the long run, those tiny changes yield compound interest. A merely mathematical thought helps: Improving your productivity by 1% every day, will result in…


Unlimitix Digs Into The Science on ‘Brain-Engineering’

Can we become more intelligent? Can we deliberately help our brain develop quicker if we adhere to certain principles? Is our brain structure changeable? Three decades ago, leading scientists would have answered ‘no’ to those questions. During the last decades however, research on neurology experienced a bit of a shake…


What Science teaches us about goals

How do we plan effectively? How do we make sure we reach our goals? The answers to those questions are complex, because they involve elements of motivation, willpower, habits and skill. Yet, researchers have found few, clear rules that give guidance on how to set and execute goals properly. In…


Science-based content to help you achieve your goals

So far, I wrote two articles (1,2) on willpower — both focussing on how to increase it. Yet, boosting your willpower can also mean to not deplete it, or frankly, have it deplete less. As we’ve learned previously, willpower behaves like a muscle that can easily be weakened. Solely adding…


Sussing out Ego Depletion Scientifically

Have you ever wondered why a living statue is exhausted when she comes home? She didn’t move nor did she have to use many of her muscles to maintain a standing position. Yet, it makes intuitive sense that she must be exhausted when she comes home. The reason: Ego depletion.


Why willpower behaves like a muscle

Willpower sounds cryptic. We’re either disciplined or we’re not. Some people seem to ‘just have it’ while others don’t. Yet, modern science has dissected the phenomenon of willpower carefully. In essence, willpower functions like a muscle and can be both trained and depleted. …


Autosuggestions examined scientifically

One study finds somewhat unsurprisingly that homeowners in a small village were not likely to agree to having a wooden ‘drive safely’ sign installed in their front lawn. Interestingly however, another village next to it was four times as likely to commit. Where did the sudden increase of 300% in…
