Back in the early 1990’s I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and majored in Nutritional Science. I picked this degree because I was obsessed with being a professional athlete. I felt like studying Nutritional Science could give me an extra edge. I was first exposed to research about calorie restriction and aging.
I was also involved in self-experimentation in my Nutritional Biochemistry class. We centrifuged our own blood and calculated LDL, HDL, and total cholesterol levels.
