Bryan Johnson: Billionaire Tech Tycoon Whose Quest is to Live Forever Reveals Why He Takes 110 Pills a Day

A billionaire tech genius who wants to ‘live forever’ has revealed information about his intricate daily routine in order to live as long as possible.

Bryan Johnson, 45, a California-based business billionaire, chatted with Steven Bartlett this week on the Diary of a CEO Podcast.

He believes that sleeping at the same time every day, not eating after 11 a.m., and taking 111 pills are the secrets to eternal youth.

The billionaire stated that his main goal in the twenty-first century is to ‘not die,’ and he will try whatever to lengthen life, including injecting his 17-year-old son’s plasma.

‘I’m revolting against the culture of death,’ he said on the podcast.

‘I was born to introduce this new idea to humanity,’ he told Dragon’s Den star Steven.

‘In the 21st Century, the only goal is not to die. It’s the rallying cry for the 21st Century, those two word: “don’t die”,’ he added.

This week, he also explained how being born Mormon and dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts led to his current success – but that he is concerned that not properly after himself earlier in life may have caused damage.

Bryan went on to say that he believes it is ‘totally feasible’ to ‘live forever,’ and that he makes all of his decisions using an algorithm, rather than giving his mind ‘power’ to make decisions.

Bryan also stated that sleep is the most important thing to him and that he measures the quality of his sleep, achieving 100% quality for six months in a row.

The billionaire confessed that he goes to bed at 8.30 p.m. every day, which can be damaging to his social life – but he believes it is worthwhile.

When he wakes up, he often doesn’t speak to anyone for four or five hours so he’s able to ‘think’.

‘I probe myself to deep levels, but you can get knocked off so fast. ‘Someone saying “How are you, how was your sleep” can knock me off.’

The father-of-one also allocates 2250 calories to eat a day, which is strictly plant-based, eating everything between 6am and 11am.

Wine, he says, should also be drunk in the morning and limited to 3oz a day.


‘I’ve built my life around sleep,’ he explained. ‘That’s the opposite of cultural norms, most people will blow their bedtime if they want to go out with friends.

‘I’ve made the hard decisions. There’s a bunch of small things. ‘My last meal of the day is at 11am, by the time I go to bed I have more than eight hours of digestion.

‘I ran a few hundred experiments on this. I sleep best with an empty stomach’.

He added that he ‘never shares a bed’ with anyone and won’t have sex after 8.30pm either.

‘I’m single, I’ve tried to date before, I’ve given them a list of 10 things that will make them impossible to like me.’


Bryan also said that he grew up in ‘typically American’ and ‘not healthy’ way where he ate many sugary cereals, but now eats zero cane sugar because it has ‘no benefits’.

‘We’re baby steps away from creating super intelligence, we cannot model out what the future is like in any way, shape or form,’ he explained.

‘The only thing we can play is don’t die, don’t kill each other. And don’t underestimate AI.’

Discussing his diet, Bryan said he eats 2250 calories a day and ‘every calorie has to fight for its life’.

He begins his day with a bowl of ‘super veggies,’ which comprise broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, ginger, and hemp seeds tossed in extra virgin olive oil and cacao. Except for potassium chloride, he adds no salt or flavoring.


He claims to eat roughly a kilogram of vegetables every day and to satisfy any sweet cravings with dark chocolate.

He then enjoys a ‘dessert’ of macadamia nuts, fruit, and proteins.

Three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a drink called ‘green giant’ are also included in the diet, as are 111 tablets.

Bryan spends $2 million (£1.6 million) per year on a staff of over 30 doctors and medical experts who manage and evaluate practically all of his organs. Their goal is to modify his body to that of an 18-year-old.

He has taken 33,537 photos of his bowels and tracks everything from bone weight to midnight erections.

He and his doctors claim that in two years, he has lost more than five years of biological age and now has the heart of a 37-year-old, the skin of a 28-year-old, and the lung capacity and fitness of an 18-year-old. Oliver Zolman, a 29-year-old doctor exploring anti-aging medicines in Cambridge, leads his medical team.

In his 30s, he started Braintree Payment Solutions, a tremendously successful firm that he sold for $800 million in 2013.
