Google is the go to source for everything today. At the click of a button you can get your questions answered on everything from weight loss to muscle gain, sickness, sports and everything in between. But how do you know who to believe? Medical science and its associated fields are probably the biggest field of inquiry. According to Arif E. JINHA research from the University of Ottawa the approximate number of published paper by the end of 2009 were 50,712,009. In the past 8 years that number has only gone up. There are so many ways to achieve the same results and so many sources which provide contradictory evidence. Which source should you trust? In this talk we will dig into how you can decipher between real-science and psuedo-science, the fun attached to experimentation and the 1 source which can enable you to 2x your mental and physical performance immediately.


  1. What is science?
  2. Examples of good science and bad science
  3. The 1 big rule which allows you to decide whether you should pay attention to the research or not
  4. All your body cares about is the nutrients, irrespective of whether you get that nutrition through eggs, supplements, protein powders or the sun
  5. How a 5 month experiment on Vitamin D in 2011 got me hooked to the science of nutrition
  6. Live examples of how I use science to make decisions on what I eat, drink and how I exercise
  7. 1 source you should immediately sign up for if you want to immediately 2x your mental and physical performance. Hint - they are a group of scientists who debunk the research for you.

    Hi Harsh/Prashanth: unfortunately, we don’t allow two speakers for a talk. There’s one speaker only. Could you please restructure your talk accordingly?

    • Harsh Batra Proposer 3 years ago

      Hi Sandhya, I will be the speaker then. The main structure of the talk remains unchanged. - Harsh

    Harsh, this proposal currently reads as an advertisement for Proven Health Solutions. In this sense, it is not of interest to the audience at Kilter, and cannot be considered for the conference. Instead, if you have material from your research and product development about specific aspects of nutrition, then that is something you should consider submitting here.

      Hi Zainab, I hear where you are coming from. The idea was not to talk about the product but more the story behind it with the nutritional insights that we gathered along the way. I have changed the nature of the talk. I will share how I track my results scientifically, why I do so and the sources I rely on to make decisions to improve my health.

    Hi Harsh, could you add some slides so that we can see your content and the flow? Thanks.

    • Harsh Batra Proposer 3 years ago

      Hi Sandhya, here is a rough outline -> This will be beautified and refined further. I want to make sure that the talk offers actionable insights to the audience otherwise it will be a waste of time for everyone involved.
