Pritikin Program
« on: May 21, 2013, 07:29:20 pm »
how is the Peak program different than the Pritikin Program?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pritikin_Diet
In several studies published since 1975, scientists at UCLA and other research institutions have found the Pritikin Program effective in preventing the major diseases that afflict modern society, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. The Pritikin Program has been documented to improve cholesterol profiles better than cholesterol-lowering drugs like statins, and has also been found to lower blood sugars, normalize blood pressure, and shed excess weight.

Im not trying to bash anything, I'm simply trying to be a consumer and wonder how they are different. aka like Consumer Reports

Well, I don't have a "dietary program".  I usually encourage guys to choose either a Mediterranean Diet, Vegetarian or Low Fat Diet, depending on their likes/dislikes, beliefs about meat, and endothelial status, because there is a lot of great research backing these three.  The DASH Diet is a relative newcomer but will probably do well also.

Pritikin's Diet is basically a Low Fat Diet.  He personally added in a little meat from what I have read, which is different from Ornish and Esselstyn, but he's squarely in the Low Fat category.  So it's basically just a slightly modified version of Low Fat compared to what you may have read about elsewhere. 
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Something I would note about pritikin for those reading this that may not know. He originally added meat in as and experiment and for some b-12. He didn't add it without caution though. He experimented until he found the perfect amount of meat that wouldn't raise his cholesterol levels and would give him b-12. If I'm remember correctly it was lean grass fed meat also which is a whole different story to adding in factory farmed beef. Cautions go out for people trying to do the same thing as pritikin without being able to test and access the same kind of meat.
ďALL IíM TRYING TO DO IS WIPE OUT HEART DISEASE, DIABETES, HYPERTENSION, AND OBESITY- NATHAN PRITIKIN

Protocol
Test Cyp 70mg sun/wed total 140mg/week IM
Hcg 500iu mon/Thursday
Anastrozole .125mg mon/thur

thanks for the heads up
I like bananas a lot, which have a lot of B6 and Kale has a lot  of  B-12, so I dont need meat, right?
