Diet Without Dieting

Diet without dieting

For something that we say that we hate, we sure do a lot of dieting. More than half of all Americans say that they’re actively trying to lose weight, and millions of us are trying to do so by cutting calories or going on special diets. The idea, of course, is that our willpower and special diets will force our bodies to shed the pounds — at which point we will get off the diet and onto something more sustainable that, we hope, will help us keep the weight off.

The problem is: None of this stuff works!

Diets overwhelmingly fail. That’s partly because people don’t stick to them, and partly because dieting itself is a flawed idea. Weight loss is much more complicated than fad diets make it seem. Furthermore, health is more than how much you weigh. Even if you do crash-diet your way to your goal weight, study after study has shown that you’re very likely to regain all of that weight soon after you reach the goal.

What is Testosterone Support or a “Testo Booster”?

Testosterone was ‘discovered’ by Dr. Charles Brown-Sequard in 1889, but it wasn’t actually named until 1935. The scientists involved, Ruzicka and Butenandt, won a Nobel Prize that same year for making the hormone suitable for commercial use. 7

Men experience a natural decline in the amount of testosterone produced by our bodies over time. Hypogonadism is the term which indicates that a man is producing either a low amount of or no testosterone. This is obviously significant in a number of ways, since the hormone plays a key role in sexual libido, muscle and bone development, immune system functioning, and red blood cell reproduction, among other things. 3 As you get older you may notice a decline in your sex drive, a decrease in your muscle strength, and a shortage of energy. 11

One possibility for dealing with these symptoms is testosterone therapy. This involves administering testosterone directly, for example, via a gel or powder. 11 However, there’s solid research showing that men over 65 who use testosterone gel have a higher risk of developing heart disease. 1 A 2014 study using rats showed that testosterone therapy can have a negative impact on the prostate. 2 There are other known potential symptoms of this type of supplementation including sleep apnea, acne, breast swelling, and high red blood cell count. 3

What Happens to Your Muscles As You Age?

Al is a 55-year-old high school science teacher. In his youth, he was fairly active. He enjoyed cycling, hiking, and playing basketball. His frequent physical activity meant that he had significantly defined muscle mass and his heart was in great condition.
