The 45-year-old tech tycoon reportedly spends $2 million a year on his extreme anti-aging regimen. His goal? To achieve the body of an 18 year old, inside and out.

Bryan Johnson is a 45-year-old tech mogul on a mission: to live 18 again.

Most of us his age and older can relate to that sentiment. What middle-aged person wouldn’t want that? Some of us do a few things here and there to try, with varying degrees of success, to hold back the ticking hands of Father Time’s clock.

But Johnson has the money and free time to go to extremes — and he’s doing it.

A profile about him for Bloomberg Businessweek reports that Johnson sold his company for $800 million in 2013, not a moment too soon when the stresses of the tech world were making him obese and depressed. So he spent his time and massive capital transforming himself.

This year, he appears to be on track to spend at least $2 million on his body with a team of 30 doctors. Bloomberg said Johnson “wanted to have the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, tendons, teeth, skin, hair, bladder, penis and rectum of an 18-year-old.”

His big idea bears the name project planthe outlet said, and for starters, it offers Johnson a strict diet — 1,977 vegan calories per day — a daily exercise regimen and regulated sleep after two hours of wearing blue-light-blocking glasses, Bloomberg said.

His vital signs are measured constantly, and the outlet added that each month Johnson “undergoes dozens of medical procedures, some of which are quite extreme and painful, and then measures their results with additional blood tests, MRIs, ultrasounds and colonoscopies.”

The doctors working with Johnson told Bloomberg it’s working because his body is “getting medically younger.”

More from the outlet:

There are some obvious signs that Johnson is at least healthier than most 45-year-olds. The guy is way more than smart. His body fat percentage ranges between 5% and 6%, which shows off his muscles and veins to the full. But what’s happening inside his body is what excites his doctors the most. They say his tests show he’s reduced his overall biological age by at least five years. Their results suggest he 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. “All of the markers we track have improved remarkably,” he says [team internist Jeff] Toll.

“What I’m doing may sound extreme, but I’m trying to prove that self-harm and decay aren’t inevitable,” Johnson told Bloomberg.

More from the outlet:

Every morning starting at 5 a.m., Johnson takes two dozen supplements and medications. There’s lycopene for arterial and skin health; metformin to prevent colon polyps; Turmeric, Black Pepper and Ginger Root for liver enzymes and reducing inflammation; zinc to supplement his vegan diet; and a microdose of lithium for, he says, brain health. Then there’s an hour-long workout consisting of 25 different exercises and a green juice packed with creatine, cocoa flavanols, collagen peptides, and other goodies. Throughout the day he eats some solid, healthy food (we’ll get to that), with recipes tweaked based on the results of his recent tests. After eating, Johnson brushes, waterpiks, and dental floss before rinsing off with tea tree oil and applying an antioxidant gel. His doctors say he has a 17-year-old’s gum disease.

There is a regimen and series of measurements for every part of Johnson’s body. He took 33,537 pictures of his intestines, noticed that his eyelashes were shorter than average and examined the thickness of his carotid artery. He bombards his pelvic floor with electromagnetic pulses to improve muscle tone in hard-to-reach places and has a device that counts the number of his nocturnal erections. Recently, he presents himself as a teenager in this regard as well.

He measures his weight, body mass index, and body fat daily, and he monitors his waking body temperature, blood sugar, heart rate fluctuations, and oxygen levels while he sleeps. He also undergoes a fairly constant stream of blood, stool, and urine tests, as well as full-body MRIs and ultrasounds, as well as regular tests more specifically targeting his kidneys, prostate, thyroid, and nervous system.

The author of the Bloomberg feature got a taste of some of the foods Johnson eats and once complained that he had to “chew a bunch of vegetables that had been mashed into a grey-brown pulp. Once upon a time it consisted of black lentils, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, garlic, ginger root, lime, cumin, apple cider vinegar, hemp seed, and olive oil, all of which sound good on their own, but when put together and mixed, felt and tasted great Paste them like dirt.”

Johnson has a 17-year-old son, Talmage, who is interested in his father’s lifestyle – as much as a teenager can be, it seems. After practice, Talmage would come into the house and prepare his own dinner, noting that while he might have inherited some of his father’s practices, he wouldn’t do what Bloomberg called “the veggie mud,” since he raw or sautéed his veggies prefer.
