Tech millionaire, 45, spends US$2m annual medical regimen to give him “fitness of 18-year-old and youthful looks”


26th March 2023 – (California) Bryan Johnson, a software millionaire who went viral for revealing his expensive medical regimen to regain his youth, has recently spoken about his controversial quest. The tech mogul found himself under the scrutiny of the public after Bloomberg published an article detailing his efforts to become 18 again through a rigorous plan called “Project Blueprint,” designed by him and his team of doctors.

The article included several claims, including Mr Johnson’s suggestion that he aims to possess the physical endurance and lung capacity of an 18-year-old, the heart of a 37-year-old, and the skin of a 28-year-old. He spends a staggering $2 million annually on his efforts to slow and reverse the aging process.

In an interview with The Independent, the 45-year-old explained why he started this quest, starting with his “bad spot” ten years ago when he was building his start-up. Mr Johnson revealed that he was struggling with depression, the pressure that came with being a founder, and being a father of three young children.

Mr Johnson blamed himself and his “self-destructive behaviors” for the challenges he faced. He frequently indulged in self-destructive habits, such as eating food to soothe his stress, which caused him to gain weight and, in turn, not sleep well, ultimately affecting his health negatively.

Mr Johnson decided to make a change, starting with a simple way of taking control of his life, which later evolved into a rigorous plan. He hired a team of 30 doctors who specialize in whole-body ultrasound to look at his lungs, heart, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and other bodily functions.

Mr Johnson has been following this plan for the last two years, and as a result, his biological age has reduced by five years. The core of the plan is to prioritise sleep, exercise, and healthy eating, including vegetables, berries, and nuts.

Mr Johnson explained that the team of specialists collaborates across all body functions, using whole-body ultrasound machines to assess his body’s overall health. By following this plan, he is now happier, healthier, and more energetic than ever before. He also stated that this system has helped him to become more healthy and happy than he could be on his own.
