I am thinking about helping someone with her fitness goals
Im going to get her a Fitbit one

I checked consumer reports and it gives Fitbit 1  that highest rating for wireless/instant feedback

Does anyone else use one of these things?

2
I have a bbing friend who runs steroids
if TRT is staying  under 1200ng/ml
he is on steroids

I am concerned more about his E2, then his total T or free T

E2=93
total T=4896
free T=>49

no doubt, he is sub 9% bf, and is just pure muscle, but that is NOT healthy, but he's 26, so he thinks he's Immortal, infertile(He is) and invincible

wont high e2 give him the cancer? etc?

You can avoid it

http://peaktestosterone.com/Prostate.aspx
You can avoid it


-Eat a low fat diet, meaning 10-15% of total calories come from fat
-eat garlic and onions a few times/week(lots of benifets there)
-spinach(vit E)
-broccoli
-tomatoes/lycopene
-increase W-3(which also increase phtyonutrients from  fruit/veggie
-green tea
-low glycemic index(no more donuts!)
DONT EAT
-HCA-Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are chemicals formed when muscle meat, including beef, pork, fish, and poultry, is cooked using high-temperature methods, such as pan frying or grilling directly over an open flame.  A good reason not to get food well-done
-avoid animal protein/milk-you get all the calcium from veggies(1 cup of brocoli has 7% of your needs from calcium, Half that of milk, twice that of garlic cloves
-

Stuff to do:

-Testosterone replacement therapy  is shown to reduce chance of BPH(you want a T/E ratio of 30-40)
-exercise, walking is the best
-lift weights
low fat diet
-green tea
-tomatoes/lycopene  is good
-get vitD above 40(5K IUs/day)
-get folate(lentils. beans, spinach, broccoli)
-lose fat(BMI 25 or less, Bodyfat, 15% or less
-get cholesterol below  200
-drink coffee
-
if you have it  you can get treated for it

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) affects more than half of 50-year-old men and more than 80 percent of 80-year-old men. "All patients are looking for the least invasive treatment with lowest risk, and this U.S. clinical study confirms the results reported by interventional radiologists in Europe and South America," said Bagla. He noted that millions of men shy away from surgical and other transurethral procedures because they understandably do not want to risk urine leak, impotence or other complications that may arise from invasive procedures.

In early findings of the study, 13 of 14 men (92 percent) who had PAE noticed a significant decrease in symptoms after one month. None of the men suffered any major complications, such as impotence, leaking urine or infection. Most went home the day of treatment.

I don't understand why people are upset about this?
a woman has a brain tumor and has been told her death is imment and going to be painful/suck
so she wants to end her life
why are people upset? shes 29, she can make her own choices, rights
it's HER body

A 29-year-old San Francisco woman plans to end her own life on November 1st, two days after her husband's birthday, which she wants to celebrate with him for a final time. After suffering severe headaches early this year, Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. After looking at the options and the suffering she would face as the disease progresses, Maynard and her husband moved to Oregon, which has a "death with dignity" law. She plans to end her life with medication prescribed by a doctor at her home with her husband and mother at her bedside. She wants to make it clear that she's not committing suicide, telling People magazine, "There is not a cell in my body that is suicidal or that wants to die. I want to live. I wish there was a cure for a disease but there's not." She's dedicating her final days to raising awareness to death-with-dignity laws, which only exist in four other states aside Oregon, with the Brittany Maynard Fund.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / P__n Withdrawal
« on: September 24, 2014, 06:04:04 pm »
[Split from this thread: http://peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=5186.15.]

many guys are healthy, high T/E ratio,  good BMI/bodyfat %, but Have ED
or PIED
Porn Induced Erection dysfunction
remember, porn is bad for sex

Year ago, I considered that porn is part of the problem, so I quit watching porn daily.  Except for a couple of slip ups here and there, I have not watched porn in 12 months. 

My libido decreased over this 12 months, and ED got worse.
oh, so that must mean porn isnt a problem?
it sounds as you've had addiction to porn for years
keep at it
 lack of porn makes ED and life worse that's talked about at the site,
ie withdrawals

going off addictions does that

http://yourbrainonporn.com/what-does-withdrawal-from-porn-look-like


    Collection of "Withdrawal symptoms"

The symptoms are similar because all addictions share certain neurochemical and cellular changes which affect specific regions of the brain. This is not to say that all addictions cause the exact same changes. Alcohol or addictive drugs may cause damage or alter additional messenger systems (for example, opiate use decreasing our body's opioid receptors). Current science finds that withdrawal initiates a cascade of neurochemical alterations, which may include:

    further decline in dopamine levels
    further decline in opioids and endorphins
    drop-off in GABA, which is an anti-anxiety neurotransmitter
    rise in brain stress hormones CRF and norepinephrine
    elevated dynorphin which inhibits dopamine and lowers your pleasure response
    one week after quitting the reward center sprouts new nerve cell branches, which correlate with cravings to use

If you have withdrawal symptoms, it's likely you have an addiction. However, some guys have addictions without much in the way of withdrawal symptoms. This is why addiction specialists don't list withdrawal symptoms in their addiction tests. See, for example, Do You Have An Addiction?

Common withdrawal symptoms include

    Anxiety
    Restlessness
    Irritability
    Insomnia
    Fatigue
    Headaches
    Poor concentration
    Depression
    Social isolation
    Loss of libido (Can take days to manifest, and last a long time)

Internet addiction research now reports that Internet addicts can suffer a form of cold turkey when they stop using the web - just like people coming off drugs.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / ICE BUCKET FRAUD:
« on: August 30, 2014, 03:01:25 am »
ICE BUCKET FRAUD: ALS FOUNDATION ADMITS THAT only 72% OF DONATIONS ARE USED FOR ALS RESEARCH
most highly ranked charities spend 75% or more per
http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=3296#.VAJN0WNRNkE


The ALS Foundation is a terrible organization to send your money. There are much better charities to send money on,. why would you donate money to this charity?

If you decide to take the Ice Bucket Challenge, may I humbly suggest that you select a well-researched charity (on your own, no endorsements here) and send it to them.
top charities, compare then to that als charity to see how charities should be run

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Any Good Flour?
« on: August 27, 2014, 05:02:33 pm »
my friend from san diego tells me today she made a better batch of cookies.
I asked why it was better
it is  a better batch because she used better flour, ie King Arthur flour and not cookie master

she asked if she should mail some to me,
I said no, they are  a treat when I visit her and her kids(3) husband, etc

is there any good flour?


I don't think so.

I have learned 3 main things from this site,

1 Don't be fat
BMI less than 25 and/or bodyfat <15%


2  Don't eat man-made foods, instead  eat nature man foods(high in nitrates)

3.  get your hormones in check(get your T/E ratio ~30-40)





once you do that, ht

Now, they say, it’s quite clear.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Question about My Dad
« on: August 01, 2014, 02:40:51 am »

It's interesting because I've been reading how E2 and thyroid are connected.  So when I had low E2 at around 18, I had a TSH of 4.1, not terribly high but still subclinical hypothyroid range.  I wonder if this interaction between E2 and thyroid is what's responsible for the fatigue and sluggishness typical of low E2.

My dad has a

T4(free) .49ng/dl  (edit: mistake, its .79(.59-1.17)
TSH 2.22
mcUnit/mL (.34-4.82)


total T of 293ng/dl
free T 15ng/dl
E2 44pg/ml
HS-crp= .2mg/L
vit D= 57 mg/ml
total cholestrol 114mg/dl
HDL 25 mg/dl
Trig 69

any thoughts ?

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Joel Fuhrman, MD
« on: July 31, 2014, 11:06:13 am »
I like the guy, but I was bothered by his comment and TRT and I was hoping someone has some science to show the other way.

He says TRT is like women HRT, 20 yrs ago, That NOW we know women HRT leads to more dease, so why think men TRT won't end up doing the same thing(leading to more dz)
ie:
." Doctors prescribed estrogen for women for twenty years, until about three years ago when comprehensive data was compiled that showed it increased the risk of heart attacks, strokes, embolisms, and breast cancer. Today, women are being weaned off their estrogen. Unfortunately, now men are being put on testosterone. Doctors are doing to men what they did to women for so long—prescribing treatment without sufficient data to reach a firm conclusion on all of the potential benefits and risks."
http://www.diseaseproof.com/archives/diet-myths-the-myth-of-antiaging-hormones-doctors-repeating-mistakes.html


but I agree with mostly everything he says, which is why that comment bugs me
I am mostly concerned about my dad who won't go on TRT because his MD told him TRT leads to heart attacks/cancer(I won't mention his MD gave him androgel years ago)
my dad is 66, tt 293. e2:44--> T/E:6.5
he needs TRT, asap

what will show him that guys who go on TRT and have adverse reactions are the unhealthy guys?  My dad works out 6 days week(cardio/weights), eats healthy, 2lbs broccoli/day, some meat, some eggs. more veggies, and BMI 26
