He predicted the computer’s victory over the world chess champion and the ubiquity of wireless Internet. Judging by the fact that all this has come true, you can trust his other predictions for the future. On top of that, Kurzweil seriously claims the possibility of eternal life and has even released a detailed guide on how to achieve it. In the book Transcend (“Overcoming”), co-authored with Terry Grossman, MD and founder of the Longevity Clinic, he outlines a program following which anyone can, if not achieve immortality, then at least significantly increase life expectancy. What is important is to be active, healthy and happy.
Kurzweil himself is now 74, but he assures that his biological age is somewhere “closer to 50”. Every day he takes about 100 dietary supplements worth several thousand dollars – about $ 1 million comes out a year. His standard breakfast consists of a cup of fresh berries, hot chocolate with a little coffee, a piece of smoked salmon or mackerel, vanilla soy milk, stevia, oatmeal and green tea.

Regularly conduct examinations of all body systems, passing tests for biochemistry, cancer markers, hormone levels, etc. Also keep track of basic health indicators like pulse, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels at home. Take a fitness test for muscle strength, flexibility, endurance.
Get enough sleep, laugh more, be outdoors, meditate regularly and do a full body massage at least once a week.
Give up sugar, replacing it with stevia, and sweets — fruits and berries, which are better to consume in the morning. Shift the focus from animal proteins to vegetable proteins (tofu, lentils, nuts).
Together with a specialist, calculate the daily amount of calories necessary for your lifestyle. Leave the table with a feeling of satiety at 80%, do not eat after 7-8 pm.
Minimum program: daily half-hour walks. If possible, increase physical activity, giving preference to aerobic, strength exercises and stretching.
Do an analysis of your DNA and start a bank of your own stem cells that can be used to replace aging cells and create new organs.
Eat organic foods whenever possible. Otherwise, avoid vegetables and fruits that contain the most toxins: bell peppers, spinach, celery, potatoes, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, apples, pears, cherries, imported grapes, raspberries. Buy foods that contain the least toxins: corn, avocado, cauliflower, asparagus, onion, peas, broccoli, pineapples, mango, kiwi, papaya, bananas. Actually detoxification is promoted by garlic, onion, rosemary, lemons, green tea.
By the way, looking at the latest photos of Ray Kurzweil and comparing them with pictures from 2-3 years ago, you involuntarily begin to believe that his theory works. However, like everything he has ever taken on.
