    How to Double Your Energy! – Ari Whitten

    In this special "Asprey Archive" episode of The Human Upgrade, you’ll find out why you’re tired, how to fix it and ways to increase your energy. Fatigue is a hidden epidemic, with chronic fatigue syndrome being the most severe end, but most people (in the U.S.) are experiencing some level of being flat-out tired as hell.

    Our guest is Ari Whitten, Ph.D. (Cand.), CES, PES, who came on the show in 2022. Ari argues that as a culture, we have normalized fatigue. In his book, “EAT FOR ENERGY: How to Beat Fatigue, Supercharge Your Mitochondria, and Unlock All-Day Energy,” he explains that 5.4 million adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (the most severe case of fatigue). However, the true fatigue epidemic affects 50 to 100 times more people.

    Ari outlines the major factors impacting mitochondrial health, including poor sleep, excess body fat, and an unhealthy gut, and offers solutions like nutritional strategies and key supplements to enhance energy. With over 25 years in natural health science and a personal history with chronic fatigue, Ari brings invaluable insights into combating fatigue through his Energy Blueprint programs and podcast, where he connects with experts on revitalizing human energy.
