thanks, Peak
I dont mean to ask obvious questions, they arent obvious answers to me and I have great appreciation for how you/this site relies on hard science and not "bro-science"

I dont have PC or BHP, but I know think I should increase my garlic intake to 3000mg
like you mention how good garlic is, but am I missing a downside?

Garlic. One study on seniors found that garlic significantly slowed down hardening of the arteries. [7] It will also lower blood pressure too.
Circulation, 1997 Oct 21, 96(8):2649-55, "Protective effect of chronic garlic intake on elastic properties of aorta in the elderly"

I know my biggest issue is the extra 50lbs Im carrying around....already working on it
with :

awaken...
.I thought you said a 25yo, brunette aerobics instructor awakening you is ideal, I haven't been able to get that off eBay or amazon..I'll keep looking ;D
2-3 cups coffee
I need to reduce the caffeine intake, but Ive read both the pros and cons of coffee
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Coffee.aspx
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Coffee_Caffeine_Dangers.aspx
and I brew my own coffee, which I take in the morning(about 3 cups) and I use splenda+almond milk

workout
-stretch,  walk 30mins  and do weights weight lifting(heavy, 3x8)
because I need to increase my caloric deficit to lose weight later in the day I do about 2-3 hours walking, moderately, treadmill lacks speedometer)
breakfast
2 whole boiled eggs(good stuff to help eyes, I can't read stuff as close up as I used to, isnt that a sign of aging?)
3g omega-3
4oz pomegranate juice
4oz cherry tart
300mg DIM

Lunch
2 apples
eggwhites

niacin
niacin-1000mg(around 10am)
 I used to drink a lot of water. but now I want to get fluride free water.. any thoughts on this or a filter to use?



Dinner
eggwhites
2-3 apples a day(well washed)
about 2 cups of mixed berries(blue,/rasp/black)
broccoli florettetes+franks hot sauce( I dont eat the stems....I disklike broccolli  in general)
(all together I get over 200 grams protein  and quite a few servings of veggies+fruit.....I tried Kale, its a no go, unless you think its something worthy of adding?)

night
-Yes, I still use listerine, but I stopped using my fluoriden rinse,
I use toothpaste, but spend a lot of time getting my gums clean

400 chelated magnessium
~2mg citrulline
~3mg arginine

I watch only funny stuff on TV, no MTV, not much news, (laughter helps)
Im trying to not worry about my life too much, I tend to overthink/worry which leads to insomina,..but like you, sleep is the worst part of my plan to undo/stop damage to my CV system.




that's my plan, do you have any comments?  Perhaps when I take some of the supplements I take?

yes, its 4am here....I have a test on saturday and Im under pressure, so I'm awake thinking about my health....the irony makes me laugh..

Let me just say that you've got a good overall program and a great start there.  I probably should emphasize this more on my site, but one can avoid worrying about all this stuff too much by realizing one important fact:  almost everyone can get a 90% improvement through increasing exercise and sleep along with a few basic supplements and a good, whole food clean diet that emphasizes plants. Doing all of this will help most guys heal and restore over the months and years.

My site has a lot of detail for those who are health geeks like me, but it's the basics that really will make the difference.  Modern societies have gotten away from the basics, the obvious things that we all know make us feel better and live healthier. At some point, you just just have to say, "I want out of the insane asylum!"

It's just tough to be patient.  It took most of us decades of slowly destroying our health, so it's important that we're patient as we rebuild...

Btw, I think I mentioned this, but you don't have many calories there.  Before you assume that you need to go on HRT, imo you should get your calories back to normal for a few weeks and then get a blood draw.

thanks Peak,
yes, I am aware I am getting bogged down in the details a lil  much, I am aware of that when I wrote, "I know my biggest issue is the extra 50lbs Im carrying around"
thats why the calories are low....I get lots of protein, from eggs and egg whites
I know that you say, "emphasizes plants" and so does Dr esselstyn, and he says animal protein is bad, and are egg whites,...yet Dean ornish allows egg whites and more importantly last time I had a cholestrol level near 100,(12 yrs ago) I dieted using eggwhites....and beef.... and veggies.....so I'm going to do what works for me to get lean again.

btw, I am not assuming I need to go on HRT at all, I am thinking I am a fat bastard whois 50lbs over weigith at least, and once I lose te fat, I'll maintain weight and I bet everything turns out  ok.......the problem is my life got off track and mucked up because I was in a coma and I lost my social life and used food to replace that.....something like that

Don't beat yourself up.  As I'm sure you can see when you look around you, 95% of the people you live and work with did the same thing.  The main thing is that you are getting your life and health back on track. 

And I understood about the weight - just checking...

Well, didn't mean to imply you were a "knucklehead".  It's very hard when everyone is doing the same thing around you. 

I grew up with sweets all around me, meat at every meal and they put MSG in my baby food.  Gasoline and paint were leaded and we had toys with big blobs of mercury in them.  DDT was used on the veges. Then, if you survived the chemicals, you were bombarded the rest of your life with ads.  Then comes the stress and lack of sleep and, after that, fast food so that you could buy a massive hamburger for almost less than you can fix it yourself.

Buy, yes, the good news is that in spite of all these things, we can recover remarkably generally and do quite well.  I think most guys can go back ten or twenty years depending on how disciplined they are...

I'm sure glad I found this forum.
I will see what happens after I use the program I listed AND lose weight to get back to 10-15% bodyfat
what do you think I'll notice as I progress in my program?

one thing I've noticed since 09 is I dont orgasm fast....I dont go soft, I just keep going, till I get tired or usually bored.
Ive been told I made the  ex-gf feel ugly and it hurt her self-esteem(she was/is 8 yrs younger, so 22/23, in the prime of her physical appeal.

I thought this was due to me being overweight and partly by retarded ejaculation(which my school psychologist(phd, not MD, and it was a free consult with thru my school  health insurance)..will that go away?

Low testosterone can cause this as well as neuropathy.  See my link on neuropathy for a little info on the latter...

concerned

I read
This is actually profound Viagra and Cialis really do not "create" nitric oxide but rather work on the enzyme that breaks it down. Viagra and Cialis simply allow nitric oxide to stay in your system longer, because it is broken down less quickly.

However, this is one of the reasons that Viagra, Cialis and Levitra do not work for many men with endothelial dysfunction. In these men, the lining of their arteries and blood vessels is so damaged that they do not put out enough nitric oxide for these PDE5 Inhibitors to act upon. L-Citrulline can substantially help such men by actually providing more substrate for these medications to act upon

from
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Citrulline_Benefits.aspx


will losing weight and lowering cholesterol help restore the endothelial?
I wish I had known about this as a kid, and even in my 20s, sheesh....

I think we're all willing to trust on the BMs.

Yes, if Viagra/Cialis/Levitra aren't working for you, that can be a sign that your endothelium is in pretty bad shape.  Lifestyle is critical at that point as it can allow your endothelium (the lining of your arteries) to heal.  Losing weight can really help for many reasons.  One of them is that when you go through the dieting phase, inflammation goes way down and this is just what the doctor ordered.

Now, if you really want to heal your endothelium, you may want to consider a Low Fat Diet or something close.  It actually clears out the plaque and can accelerate that healing process.  Just do a search on my site and I have quite a bit of info on it.  It may, though, lower T slightly, although I'm not so sure in your case.

Anyway, you sound like you have your own of eating, but I'm just mentioning it.  The Mediterranean Diet also has good outcomes as well.

great, I can still take  get myself  CV system better, although I can get erections, the quality of the erection varies, but exercise/losing weight is what I'm doing, so its good to hear that I'm not always going to be like this, it would make the quality  of my life pretty horrible.

I read about The Mediterranean Diet http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Med.aspx and I have a few questions, for my own good and for my parents:

They primarily eat protein from ground turkey, which has 25grams of saturated fat...(80 total fat) 210 protein...yet they   cook it on a george foreman grill don't really know how much saturated fat they are getting.... but does mean increase inflammation?After reading your ebook, and site, I find: Yes, it does.
 Arachidonic Acid  in turkey (70 mg), pork (50 mg) and chicken (50 mg) increase inflammation. Isnt inflammation what causes fat to stick to the endothelium? so no inflammation, then we dont need to worry about fat so much?


is fat essential to a diet?  I know omega-3s are essential, but isnt that it? I think not, because of dean ornishe


How do I decrease inflammation?
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Inflammation.aspx

OH, cool so you wrote an article on it,
a few questions about that article
-eggs
I am eating 2 whole eggs a day, I dont like eggs, but I read on your site how whole eggs raise HDL
This study found that neither bad cholesterol nor triglycerides, the bad cholesterols, were increased significantly at all, while HDL, the good cholesterol, was increased by almost 50%!  In other words, there is a good chance, although this has not been studies either way, that a whole egg a day is actually heart healthy.
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/BeefnEggs.aspx

but whole eggs also increase inflammation? 
so how many eggs can I eat a day? Im going to eat 2 a day.mostly to get the nutrients for the eye. and the rest of the protein I get from eggwhites

or should I skip Whole eggs altogether, as you say in your book, "peak erectile strength",  vegans have about a 7% high testosterone.
 level than meat eaters.

also, Im not sure what kindof chocolate I should be eating?  I know you said "standard Hershey's and Nestle's cocoa that you buy in the supermarkets (in the U.S.) use a processing called Broma that leaves the flavanol content largely untouched."  but does that mean I can buy a Dove piece and thats good?(20grams every 3 days)  (I think so)

I think that inflammation factors are one of the most important things to watch in your diet and both turkey and egg yolks are high in AA, which can lead to elevated inflammation.  Eggs yolks are packed with great nutrients, though, such as choline, lutein, etc.  Imo this is a case where moderation is the key for most people.  Again, though, if your endothelium is quite damaged, you may need to be ultracareful and eliminate these from your diet.  It is important to realize that inflammation is behind so many of our modern health issues.

Yes, from what I have read, cholesterol could be considered a secondary player behind inflammation in arteriosclerosis.  But that is not to say that cholesterol does not play a role and should be ignored.  I keep my cholesterol below 150.

I use Navitas' cocoa powder myself.  See my site for details.

somewhere you mention the outer part of meat, which has cooked/harder edges, has a lot of something that makes its more likely to cause cancer(maybe)
but I cant find that article, do you know what I'm talking about?
