Bob Troia Aka “Quantified Bob” – Technology Entrepreneur, Biohacker, and Self-Quantification Geek

Today’s guest is Bob Troia - or “Quantified Bob” as he calls himself. Bob is not the average health and fitness geek; he’s a geek’s geek. With a background as a software engineer, Bob takes personal data analysis to a whole new level. As you’ll quickly learn, he takes his tracking very seriously.

In this episode, we talk about the API Bob’s built for his personal data, the underlying software architecture, his tracking strategy, and some of the data analysis tools he uses to make sense of the massage amounts of data he’s collecting. If you love to geek-out on apps and tools as much as we do, Bob has you covered. He gives us an inside look at exactly what he uses, how he uses it, and why it’s important.

Not only do we dive into the super geeky stuff—which we love—we also cover a wide-ranging list of topics that can be applied to anyone looking to live a longer, healthier life, including:

  • What environmental factors he monitors and manages (e.g. air quality, water quality, and the electromagnetic radiation)

  • How Bob uses data to personalize his diet

  • What it means to build a biohacking gym

  • Why Bob thinks Epigenetics are more important than Genetics

  • And of course, all of the wonderful data tracking and analyzing tools your heart desires
