Podcast 36: Is Milk Really Good For You?


 

Episode 36 is a nicely balanced episode if I do say so.

I end up talking about a couple important subjects.


1. Climate change- I astutely predict we are in a global cooling phase for the next few months only to have things change around and enter a global warming phase around April. Weird.
 
Next up are movie reviews. First you hear a short rant about how people can’t sit still in movie theaters and how they turn into savages with their cell phones.
 
Next I tackle the riddle that is the “Riddick” series. So close to being a good franchise.
 
“The Legend of Hercules” only because I am too cheap to rent the better Rock version and this one was free on HBO.
 
“The Wolverine” with the eternal enigma that is Hugh Jackman.
 
Next we tackle a study that says milk is bad for you. Is it? I’m not telling. You have read this far, go ahead and click the download button to get the whole story.
 
 
While you are at it, you might as well follow me and review me on ITunes. Is this too much to ask?
 

Podcast 34: Why You Don’t Know What Your Brain is Doing and How to Fix It.

Episode 34 is all about the brain.

You would think your brain is on your side in making your life better, wouldn’t you?

 
Not really. I am reading a book by David Rock called “Your Brain at Work”. The book basically tells you why you fall into patterns and habits. This isn’t a self-help book as much as a tour guide of the inner workings of you brain.
 
And in this episode you see the inner workings of my brain as I talk about this and,of course, how this pertains to exercise and nutrition. Knowing this stuff can have a profound impact on your success.
 
We also start to cover the concept of strength and how to get it. It is very strange that this is such a foreign concept to people but strength is the groundwork to health.

Podcast 33: Phony Sausages and the 8 Day a Week Workout

Podcast 33: Phony Sausages and the 8 Day a Week Workout

Well this episode starts off well enough with an actual mention of my sponsors and the hint of something big coming soon. I can’t say for sure what it is but I am pretty happy about it.

 
This week’s Self-destruct goes to the makers of mediocre sausage known as Hillshire Farms. Now I know that other big corporations are guilty of using the current concern about eating healthier to promote their products to appear healthy when they really aren’t. In this case I had to misfortune to buy their product so they earn the right to be exposed this week. 
 
Next we talk about doing exercises you hate but know are good for you. You need to do them. There is too much hate in the world, Cross that anger bridge onto the friendship shore with me. I will give you compelling reasons why you need to do them.
 
After that detour we get back on track with how to construct high intensity/low intensity days so you can get better results faster. The failure to get into a rhythm is the main cause for lack of gains/interest/progress. I will show you what you need to do.

 

Post 150: Considering Hormone Replacement Therapy? Look at Your Adrenals

Low Testosterone or Adrenal Fatigue???

adrenals The Adrenal Glands

How Do You Tell if You Have low Testosterone or Low Testosterone Due tp Adrenal Fatigue?

Does Adrenal Fatigue even exist?

Okay, this may not be as exciting as looking at oiled up spray tan guys barking about raising your testosterone….but this does make more sense.

Hormone replacement therapy is the hot industry buzzword and clinics are popping up faster than Crossfit gyms.

Disclaimer: There is a lot of controversy about this stuff. Doctors debate if Adrenal Fatigue actually exists? I am not claiming to be an expert on this. I don’t have a dog in this fight.

What I do think is alot of people. yes women are big on this too, jump into to a lifetime of hormone replacement without looking at other possible causes.

So what can cause Low T?

  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Being over-tired
  • Getting old.

Except for the last reason, you can fix all the others.

My thought on this is that a lot of people find it easier to get a shot in the butt than to learn how to take care of themselves.

In fact, the hormone replacement therapy is an excuse not to change their lifestyle.

Kind of like a more aggressive version of drinking caffeine all day because you need energy.

So, do you need it?

For a lot of people the answer is no. This is something you need to do your research on before dropping your pants in front of a doctor.

#1 Introducing exogenous testosterone in your body means you will have to do this treatment the rest of your life. If you want normal test levels.

In other words if your body is getting this from an outside source, it doesn’t need to make it itself. So it stops or at the very least slows down.

Stop the treatment and your levels will plummet lower than when you started. You will be a wreck for awhile.

#2  HRT is expensive.

#3  What a great way to build repeat customers for the clinic. Great for Doctors who want to make tons of money giving people shots in the butt and bad for you if this really isn’t the issue.

If you have low testosterone it may mean that something is going on upline causing the low testosterone production. Adding test to your system is treating the effect not the cause.

That is why hormone therapy is not always effective.

Look at this article of on the adrenals. There is a short 3 minute video that will answer a lot of questions you may have.

Hopefully it will make sense to you. Or google “pregnenolone dump”.
