“I never set an alarm.” A 61-year-old man who looks 38 told how he does it (3 photos)

22 April 2024

A new star has emerged in the community of biohackers—people trying different ways to slow down the natural wear and tear of the body. The network is discussing photographs of Dave Pascoe, a 61-year-old retiree from Michigan, who claims that his external and internal body condition is that of an ideally healthy 38-year-old man.

The American revealed the details of his lifestyle and told how to make it grow old as slowly as possible.

Pascoe says he never sets an alarm and sleeps until he wakes up naturally. At the same time, he still manages to open his eyes before the sun rises. Then the man does 15 minutes of stretching on the floor and spends another 5 minutes jumping on a mini-trampoline. Afterwards, he brushes his teeth and waits an hour before taking 82 supplements at once, including calcium D-glucarate and vitamin D3 tablets.

Next, Dave goes for a run or a brisk walk, followed by a comprehensive P90X workout with an emphasis on strength training. After finishing his workout, Pascoe goes to meditate in the sauna for 45 minutes.

To fuel his body, a man drinks a smoothie before breakfast consisting of one green banana and a serving of chia berries. Pascoe notes that he rarely eats lunch and his second meal most often occurs between 3 and 5 p.m.—usually grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, or wild fish. Dave also regularly adds garlic, herbs and sauerkraut to his dishes.

Before going to bed, Pascoe performs a series of exercises for balance and flexibility, takes several dozen more supplements (a total of 158 tablets per day) and applies serums and creams to the skin.

At the same time, the pensioner states that he does not force himself at all and does not adhere to such a strict routine every single day. “If something happens that interferes with one or more rituals, I will not worry about it. Structure and discipline are good, but the best things in our lives tend to happen spontaneously,” says Dave, adding that in any of his routines he would always prefer a fun holiday with friends and doesn’t see that as a problem.

The pensioner also named the approximate amount it costs him to rejuvenate his body - it’s about $30 thousand a year, which, in general, is not that much if we consider it as an investment in a happy and healthy old age. “My goal is to live in good shape until at least 95 years old. And God willing, I’ll make it to 110.” - Pascoe states.
