  • Searching for Less Stress in a Can with Zenify

    Omid Vojdani, Edible Skinny|Nov 20, 2021

    I've been fairly absent from the blog for a while. With trying to keep up a thriving therapy business during a pandemic, buying a home, starting a 3 year program to become a holistic healthcare practitioner, and as of 6 months ago becoming a father, life has definitely been a whirlwind. Time as well as simply brain bandwidth has become an incredibly important resource (as well as sleep with a 6 month old), and I had resided myself to putting aside product reviews for a time to catch up on life....

  • The Next Superfood: Caviar with Imperia Caviar

    Omid Vojdani, Observer Staff Writer|Mar 1, 2020

    Caviar as the next coconut water? A superfood for the wellness masses out there? I couldn't believe it when I first heard it. What came to my mind first when I was told to write about caviar was tuxes, monocles and mansions, not the biggest health food trend coming to the wellness community since avocado toast. That all changed when I had the pleasure of speaking with Sony Mordechai, a serial entrepreneur and founder of Santa Monica, CA based Imperia Caviar. Sony founded Imperia in 2018 with a...

  • Lab Tested for Purity: Specialty Curated Vino With Dry Farm Wines

    Omid Vojdani, Health n Wellness Editor, Edible Skinny|Jul 16, 2019

    Wine. Like most people, I hated it at first, unable to detect the subtle nuances in flavor. Notes of cherry and a hint of tobacco? More like alcohol forward rotten grape juice, right? But, with some exploration and experience, I started to be able to understand enough to know that I don't like fruity Cabs, but I do like a really dry Sauvignon Blanc (just like I like my beer). But just like beer, there was always a problem: the inevitable sluggishness the next day. Someone once told me that...

  • Tailored Travel Workouts with Aktiv Virtual: Customizing the Gym Experience

    Omid Vojdani, Health and Wellness Editor Edible Skinny|May 10, 2019

    As a personal trainer, one of my biggest pet peeves was seeing how many people would come to the gym just to do 'cardio' on the ellipticals or treadmill, rather than head out to the weight room. At first, I thought it was fear of injury, then I thought it was just a lack of confidence with what to do with the heavy weights. Now, I realize the reality of the situation is simple: people don't want to have to think about exercise when they already have so many other things on their mind. That's...

  • BioHack Your Life with The 6th annual Biohacking Conference and Upgrade Experience at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel

    Omid Vojdani, Health and Wellness|Mar 29, 2019

    A few years back, I had the experience of a lifetime when I visited the flagship Upgrade Labs, the brainchild of Bulletproof founder, Dave Asprey, and the world's first Biohacking Health and Fitness facility, in Santa Monica, CA. Amanda McVey, the VP of Upgrade Labs, and her expert team there treated me to almost every 'biohack' they had at their disposal so I could have the full experience of being upgraded by the cutting edge tech they had. After almost 4 hours I left with a level of energy...

  • How I Learned How to Free the Hydrogen Molecule from its H2O Shackles with HyrdroTab

    Omid Vojdani, Health and Wellness Editor, Edible Skinny|Feb 26, 2018

    Two weeks ago, I found myself at Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica to be a guest at a launch party for HydroTab. HydroTab is a tablet that is added to plain water to 'free' the hydrogen molecule from its H20 shackles and, once consumed, helps the body detox at the molecular level inside the cell. To understand this, we've got to talk a little bit of chemistry and microbiology. While oxygen is a vital part of life (yay breathing), it is also a catabolic nutrient (think rust on a boat). To keep...

  • Hacking Your Health in 2018 with Bulletproof Labs & a 20 Second Workout

    Omid Vojdani, Edible Skinny|Jan 19, 2018

    Hello, and happy health to you all! I was lucky enough to be invited to Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica, a 'fitness facility' dedicated to optimizing physical and cognitive performance through science. After spending four hours there, trying almost everything they had to offer, I realized that calling Bulletproof Labs a fitness facility is like calling Picasso a painter; technically it's accurate, but really only scratches the surface of the level of artistic precision they are able to deliver...
