Dr. Blander is internationally recognized for his research in the Biology of Aging. He shares that as a child, he was "fascinated by the aging process." A relative had passed away when he was young, and he realized he would not live forever. Dr. Blander decided to dedicate his life to the study of aging.
He moved to Boston in 2002, and received his PhD from MIT, with a focus on aging research. At the same time, he learned about intermittent fasting, studying its benefits on longevity. He learned that intermittent fasting lowers glucose and reduces inflammation, among other things. Dr. Blander has been living an intermittent fasting lifestyle for the last eight years, because his research showed its abundant health benefits. He fasts for health, not for weight loss, and his windows vary every day.
Dr. Blander created his company, Inside Tracker, with the desire to help people live longer lives with personalized nutrition.
