Today we're here with Dan Pardi, the Dan behind DansPlan.com. Dan's Plan is a super-cool and totally free website that I highly encourage you to check out.
Had some very interesting conversations with Dan in Austin a few weeks back and was stoked to get him on the Fat-Burning Man Show. Due to our similar interests in geekery, we have a brainy chat about all sorts of fun things (provided you're a nerd like us).
So Who is Mr. Dan?
Dan is the CEO and co-founder of Dan's Plan, an online wellness and technology company promoting optimal health in our modern world. He has performed scientific research on diet, exercise, and cancer, and continues to conduct research today in both sleep neurobiology and cognitive neuroscience at Stanford University and Leiden University.
Dan is an invited member of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior, which looks at biological, psychological and social processes associated with food intake. Early in his career, he served as Assistant Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of San Francisco, where he designed year-round training protocols to optimize in-seasons performance for 13 different athletic teams.
What is Dan's Plan?
The Thesis
A "broken lifestyle" is at the root of modern illness. View health not simply a balance of wellness and sickness, but also as a personal practice. An effective health practice will reduce the risk of disease, maintain physical abilities, and optimize life performance, life quality, and lifespan.
The Focus
Food, movement, and sleep are the foundations to your daily health practice. With simplified lifestyle tracking, we provide insights on key actionable behaviors and then let you know if you're living within your 'Zone of Health' on a daily-to-weekly basis.
Nobody can be healthy for you. Dan's Plan helps make it easy and fun.

The Show
Among other things, Dan and I chat about:
Quantified self and using technology to stimulate behavior
Dan's super cool, just updated free website, Dan's Plan
The importance of quality sleep
My new book, The Musical Brain: A Comparative Review of the Evolution of Music, Language, and the Brain
Behavioral economics and why you might drive across town to save $50 on a TV (but not a car)
And the implications of the precipitous drop in our food spending in the past few decades
