Meet Ray Kurzweil . He’s the president engineering honcho at Google and aside from estimating and technology, there’s something else he wants to architect: a really long life.
The 67 -year-old has said he wants to “extend our longevity indefinitely.” In 2009, he authored Transcend: Nine Stairs To Living Well Forever . Kurzweil lately invited the Financial Times to have breakfast with him so that he could expose what he gobbles every morning and why.
“This food actually replenishes you up with fewer calories, ” Kurzweil told the Financial Times of his healthful breakfast. And it doesn’t sound all that bad.
Kurzweil had a table laid out with porridge, blackberries and raspberries, smoked salmon and mackerel, vanilla soy milk, light-green tea and dark chocolate.
Dark chocolate, he mentioned, is very anti-inflammatory, together with berries, which are all carried with antioxidants.Salmon, which is rich in fatty battery-acids, has also been shown to help protect your brain and reduce swelling.
Now here’s what you won’t learn on Kurzweil’s table. He stands away from meat, opting for fish instead. He also seems to limit his carbohydrate, exploiting unsweetened soy milk and having Stevia on hand if needed.
But here’s the other part of his anti-aging regimen. Kurzweil says he used to take 250 pills a day but has managed to reduce it to 100. He takes 30 of them with breakfast — augments to corroborate everything from nerve health to brain health and even sex health.
That’s one part of his regimen that’s a little harder to swallow.
Meanwhile, business baron Warren Buffett is somewhere enjoying a Coke and a container of chocolate chip ice cream for breakfast. Buffett affirms that “eating like a 6-year-old” is how he’s managed to live to 85.
To each, his own.
