Bryan Johnson, a 45-year-old biotech entrepreneur, may have found the key to reversing the aging process through an intense data-driven experimental program called Project Blueprint. According to a recent Bloomberg report, Johnson’s test results show that he has the heart of a 37-year-old and the lungs of a young adult.
Johnson’s goal is to game nature’s course of aging and have the organs and health of an 18-year-old by spending up to $2 million on his body this year. The program is led by Oliver Zolman, a 29-year-old physician who calls himself the “rejuvenation doctor,” and is supported by a team of over 30 health experts.
While still in its experimental stage and constantly being tweaked, the program consists of an intense daily regimen of carefully curated supplements, meals, exercise, and a slew of bodily tests. Johnson’s 5 a.m. mornings, for example, start with two dozen supplements for all kinds of purported health benefits: lycopene, metformin, turmeric, zinc, and, for brain health, a small dose of lithium, among others.
His meals, a mix of solid and soft foods, are vegan and restricted to 1,977 calories a day. He exercises daily, with three high-intensity workouts a week, and goes through blood tests, MRIs, and colonoscopies each month.
“What I do may sound extreme, but I’m trying to prove that self-harm and decay are not inevitable,” Johnson told
