Peak, hormonal things. I was't talking about what you said, but about Werd's comment, "congenital predisposity to diabetes 2 f.ex, i have the same thing." I don't know what he meant by saying it, but I also didn't know high cholesterol was an indicating factor for Diabetes. Thanks and I am on the watch for that, but now too much. I'm only going to focus on the T problem now, because if my mind is bombarded with too many things, then I shut down and give up. Hopefully, doing this naturally will affect everything else too.
I mean, when you take just two seconds to think about it, it's a wonder we don't associate the bad things we do, and the bad things we suffer from, as being parts of the same big picture. I definitely know if I just change my lifestyle to med diet and add healthy exercise, then I'll be so much better off, especially since I'm a young guy.
About the baseline 15% thing with the weight loss, I'm guessing you're talking about calories, cause I remember that somewhere on here. I'm thinking that would mean the amount of calories I STARTED with in weight loss would have to only drop, at most, by 15% to still be healthy and effective. I wasn't getting adequate amounts, so I'm worried about that, but since I've been forcing myself to eat a little more, I think I've actually increased the intake. Scratch that, I know I've increased it.
So what about dem apples? Should I slow down my walking, or decrease the time, or just let it plateau where it is and keep going? In case you didn't see them, my loss numbers: End of June-284lb, Mid July-278, Now-271/73. Is that too much for two months?
My weight loss program is this: Stretch out mostly my legs before a walk, then walk for 20-30 mins roundtrip, be home and stretch legs and arms and body. I've never been able to touch my toes without struggling and usually falling over. Now I can with a little strain, but it's the good burn you get from doing something good for you. That's it. I started yesterday going for a five minute walk later in the day to get the blood flowin, and I thnk I slept longer.
My one problem though? Since I started all this exercise, even at the beginning in July, I started getting these deep pains from the right side of my chest, near my pec. Not exactly my breast (I don't think I ever mentioned I have those), but towards the middle and down more than anything. Checking now it's also kind of radiating to the back in the same spot. Breathing deep and hunching forward (which I have to do to type well at all) agravates it , as well as when I do my stretches to my toes, so I think It's some strained muscle deal, but I've got to talk to the doc about it.
My diet isn't as beneficial as it could be, but it is better than it was. I'm eating more grain than anything, and not always good ones either, but we haven't gone shopping for a while. I also pop a few bits of shredded cheese, nuts, and I munch on a few graham crackers through the day. I also open a can of chili and eat half one day and the rest the next. No veg or fruit yet, but that'll come with money.
My mom's diet is even moreso bad than mine. At mcdonalds (yeah I brought the big gun out, whachyou gonna do?) they have these new sweet teas that my mom loves. She comes home at midnight and picks stuff up, and in the last two weeks, I've seen seven of those large cups of sweet tea sitting around. It tastes good, but that's probably all the excitos they throw in.
She also decays her sweet tooth because she buys those packs of cookies from the dollar tree for breakfasts cause she thinks she won't be able to make toast when she wakes up. She has diet cola all the time, thinking it's better, when it's just as bad as regular. Soda shouldn't be drunk at all, but that's beside the point. You can only change so much at once.
She constantly buys sugary snacks because in fairness, she has dropped I think 130 lbs in the last six years, but she still uses the excuse that she can treat herself to something nice every once in a while. Three times a week isn't every once in a while. That's the whole holiday season.
So yeah, I don't eat as bad as her, but I also don't not eat what she eats from time to time. I'm only so powerful so soon and if you have it in the house with no alternatives, which I would gladly eat healthier, then I'm going to snack on them too.
Alright, I'll check out your site (I thought I already read enough to be fluent in Peakanese), and maybe all that'll give me some good starting searches online. Yes, anytime you have any problems medically, go to the doctor, but it is hard to do without money and the right knowledge so you don't basically get robbed and then blinded by some prescription.
I recently remembered my dad had a GP or something about ten years back who had a sex change surgery to a woman, and I was thinking about checking her out (professionally). She'd probably know stuff about hormones, right?
You say fertility docs, sports med docs, and maybe endocrinologists, but you also say endos might be the most old fashioned thinkers in this area? My mom had to see a sports med doc once, so I maybe I can look at that?
alright, thanks and you're the best at what you do. help ppl.. with their... T problems. Okay, so it's not killing, but it's better!
