At just 45 years old, tech mogul Bryan Johnson already appears to have an acute fear of death after spending more than $2 million (£1.6 million) a year on his quest for eternal youth, which he’s called “Project Blueprint.”
The American entrepreneur, who sold his company Venmo to PayPal for around half a billion pounds, takes 80 vitamin and mineral pills every day, eats roughly 70 lbs of pureed veggies a month and has a strict bedtime of 8:30pm every night.
He’s even taken more than 33,000 pictures of the inside of his bowels, in an attempt to monitor its health.

The health fanatic eats exactly 1,977 calories a day, no more and no less, which is made up of a variety of supposedly health-boosting foods including flaxseed and berries.
He claims to exercise for at least an hour every day in an effort to maintain his fitness levels, which he says are equal to an 18-year-old.

He said: “Yes, it hurts. What I am doing can be incredibly painful. But I believe it will be worth it in the end.”
While he’s testing the male version of Project Blueprint on himself, he’s recently been able to hire a woman to see what a female-oriented version of the programme would look like.
Bryan said: “We are quite literally mad as a species. We are addicted to junk food, to alcohol, drugs, cigarettes.

“All these things which make us feel bad. We are at war with ourselves. How can we hope to save the planet, to survive as a species, if we can't make peace with our own bodies?”
While many have criticised his project as the work of a man with too much money, time and confidence in himself, he appeared to sidestep those remarks.
He added: “Haters are always going to hate, but to me the mark of genius is hitting a target no one else can see.”
