Self Experimentation: The Best Science?

An overview of science and the scientific method or discipline, to include the principle of falsifiability for scientific propositions. This is then applied to my own years of self experimentation in a context of weight gain/loss and degraded/improved health and fitness.

Self-Experimentation
        The Best Science?


  Richard Nikoley, FreetheAnimal.com
What is Science?
• The intellectual and practical activity
  encompassing the systematic study of the
  structure and behavior of the physical and
  natural world through observation and
  experiment
• A systematically organized body of knowledge
  on a particular subject
• Knowledge of any kind
How is Science Done?

• Make observations and study them
• Find associations
• Form a hypothesis; make a prediction
• Test hypothesis
Principles of Science

• Falsifiability
• Try to disprove
• Avoid confounders
• No number of failures to disprove confirms an
  hypothesis while a single falsification relegates
  the hypothesis to the shitcan
Bullshit Science

• Confirmation bias
• Grant whores
• Pet theories
• Follow the money
• Political policy
Good vs. Useful Science

• Even the best controlled, randomized
  intervention study utilizing impeccable
  methods and presenting clear conclusions is of
  limited relevance to YOU!
• You still have to test it on yourself
