On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a study that showed that in 2015, only 9 percent of Americans were getting their 1½ to 2 cups of fruit and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day according to national guidelines.

Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica, California isn't your average fitness center, maybe because it's not a fitness center at all.

The company lists iton Instagram as a "Human Upgrade Center" and invites its followers to "unleash the art and science of becoming superhuman". A monthly membership costs about $ 500 per month, according to the Fast Company. (For a good measure, it's worth noting that many of these therapies are unproven.)
