Take The Cake: Diets Don’t Work (But They Do Give People …

Posted: March 26, 2019 at 3:42 am

Its news to literally no one that diets dont work.

We know that food restriction is correlated with a panoply of negative outcomes: anxiety, body dissatisfaction, inability to focus, and, yes, chronic hunger. I would argue that anyone who has been on a diet could tell you that they dont work, but weve long willfully ignored the results (both as individuals and as a culture) because why exactly? There are a few answers to this question, but Id like to focus on the fact that diets serve other purposes less tangible than a radically different body, and more emotional and social. Id like to share four roles that dieting serves for people who are dieting, with a focus on how it interacts with feminine gender socialization:

Dieting is very good at getting our every waking thought/breath/impulse to focus completely on it. When youre restricting you are deep in the mindset that every bite, every step, every decision you make is either making or breaking you. A cookie or carrot is what stands between you and having a terrible day. When your fate is tied up in every single bite of food, how can you not become utterly consumed? You are being utterly consumed, girl!

Disassociation is something women have learned how to do really well as weve spent hundreds of years navigating our systematic dehumanization. I grew up watching the women in my family disassociate like pros from their dissatisfying marriages, from disrespectful children, from the fact that they had maybe never had an orgasm. Dieting is a socially sanctioned method of mentally high-tailing out of whatever is going on and keeping you entirely in your head, laser-focused on your next bite, your scale, your plate.

Women have been taught that we can talk about how much we hate our body as a way of bonding with other women. Think of that scene in Mean Girls where the popular girls come home from school, stand in front of a mirror and begin a chorus of criticism. Not to be that feminist, but its pretty clearly an example of patriarchal sabotage.

Women are socialized into communicating in a very limited way with other women. Were allowed to talk about a few safe topics that keep us stuck in a sense that we are alone (not the real topics that women face and that unite us like: sexual assault, sadness, sexual frustration, trauma, abortion). In recollecting what women-strangers talk to me about, I would say it boils down to the following: the weather, children (if she has some), maybe housework or our favorite new coffee beverage, maybe where we got our outfit, and dieting. Of all that is available, talking about dieting is actually quite intimate in comparison to, say, discussing the weather. I do honestly believe that when women start talking to me about how food is evil or how bad they look, theyre trying to communicate to me that they want to be friends. Of course, undercutting yourself is not the best basis for intimacy building, but we work with what were socialized to work with unless were introduced to different methods!

Dieting is pretty much universally socially acceptable in our culture. Dieting is considered part of self-improvement and discipline, two of the most important things in our culture. Our culture loves it when we take complete ownership of our fate and pretend that all problems are individual problems that can be solved by individual efforts (not collective change). Dieting is an individual behavior that is supposed to solve a cultural problem - fatphobia. It is hard to stand out - some people dont get to choose whether they stand out or not (like Im a fat brown lady who lives in an affluent white coastal city. I dont get to choose if I stand out.), but some people undertake dieting as a way to fit in.

There are plenty of social rewards to be had by just jumping on the restriction bandwagon. Others verbally encourage people on diets, offering compliments for skipped meals or salad consumption. If youre a fat person, you get accolades for trying to fix your body. These rewards are also internal and psychological. There can be both the negative emotions that come with dieting as well as the positive emotions that come with being able to separate oneself from non-compliant fat people (e.g. Well, yes, Im fat but at least Im trying!). This is a manifestation of internalized self-loathing that is then projected outward.

Its important to understand the multiple dimensions of why people adopt dieting behavior. Its also important to keep talking about and enacting fat activist and fat positive methods as an intervention. Keep feministing!

Do fasting diets work?

Posted: March 16, 2019 at 11:42 pm

Mark Twain once said a little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors.

There may be something to Twains belief, as we increasingly hear that skipping meals or even fasting is good for us.

Celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Beyonc and Benedict Cumberbatch swear by fasting diets, while BBC science presenter Dr Michael Mosley created a sensation in 2012 when he devised his 5:2 diet.

Fasting diets come in various forms.

The 5:2 diet allows you to eat normally five days a week and restrict calorie intake to a quarter (500 to 600 calories) on two days.

Alternate-day fasting is one day of fasting, one day normal eating.

Theres also time-restricted fasting, or eating only during certain hours of the day, like the so-called Warrior Diet, which involves minimal calorie intake for 20 hours a day, and eating normally only between 6pm and 10pm.

Weight loss seems to be the main one.

A 2018 study by the UKs University of Surrey found that one group doing time-restricted fasting lost on average more than twice as much body fat as those in a control group that ate meals as normal.

The American Heart Association also stated in 2017 that there was evidence that both alternate-day fasting and periodic fasting may be effective for weight loss, although there are no data that indicate whether the weight loss can be sustained long term.

Dr Mosley argues that not only does fasting lead to weight loss, but also cellular repair and improved brain function.

Accredited practising dietitian Kate Gudorf says fasting appears to produce weight loss as does any form of calorie restriction.

Some studies have found that fasting can reduce fasting glucose levels, HDL (bad) cholesterol, body-mass index, triglycerides (fats in blood) and some inflammatory markers, she says.

The question is, are these outcomes a testament to fasting diets, or because weight loss is produced, which feeds into these other benefits? At the moment we lack good data on fasting diets, says Ms Gudorf, of the Dietitians Association of Australia.

She recommends instead simply eating a healthier diet, with more vegetables and fruit, meaning both fewer calories and meeting nutritional needs.

Weight loss is not always a good indication of diet quality its much easier to eat fewer calories if you simply eat a healthy diet, and nutritionally you would be meeting all your needs.

Basically Australians are not eating very well and getting about a third of their energy from junk food.

The Complete Guide to Safely and Healthily Losing Weight Fast

Posted: March 13, 2019 at 12:46 am

If you want to know how to lose weight fast without sacrificing your muscle, metabolism, or health, then you want to read this article.

Youre here because you want to lose weight fast, and thats completely understandable.

Whether you have a lot or a little fat to lose, the sooner its over, the better.

You have to be careful what you wish for, though, because if you go about it incorrectlylike most people doyou may just wind up skinny fat.

In other words, if you do what most people dostarve yourself and do a bunch of cardioyoull lose weight alright, but youre probably not going to be happy with what you see in the mirror.

The reason for this is most rapid weight loss protocols are essentially crash diets that burn just as much muscle as fat, which ruins your body composition.

The goal, then, isnt to lose weight as quickly as possible, but to lose fat and not muscle as quickly as possible.

Thats how you get lean, toned, and defined, not skinny, flabby, and weak.

And when thats the goal, you have to do things very differently. The good news, though, is the better way is also easier than you probably think.

Thats right, once you know what youre doing, you can not only lose fat (and not muscle) rapidly, but you can do it without suffering. In fact, you can even enjoy the process.

Thats what youre going to learn in this article.

And then youre going to get a proven diet and exercise plan that you can start today and see real results within your first week.

Lets get started.

Would you rather listen to this article? Click the play button below!

Want to listen to more stuff like this?Check out my podcast!

Flip open any magazine, book, or blog article on how to lose weight fast, and this is more or less what youre going to be told:

And it worksfollow that plan and youll lose weight faster than Hollywood ruined the Star Wars franchise.

What you wont do, however, is get the body you really want. Instead, youre likely to wind up skinny fat, like this:

Now, Im not saying that these people should be ashamed of their bodies, but lets be real: those arent the looks that makes us want to get off the couch and under the squat rack.

For that, we need more payoff, like these guys and gals:

So, what did these people do that everyone else gets wrong?

Well, lets start with what they didnt do. They didnt . . .

Most popular weight loss diets have two things in common:

And this works wellfollow that plan and you will lose weight fast.

If you look at your body composition, though, then its clear this approach does more harm than good.

You see, when youre in a large calorie deficit and eating too little protein, you lose fat, but you also lose quite a bit of muscle as well and your metabolism slows down markedly.

Hunger also skyrockets after a few weeks, leaving you primed to binge back much of the weight you lost.

This is because theres a point of diminishing returns when it comes to calorie restriction. Reduce your calorie intake slightly, and you can lose weight consistently without excessive hunger, cravings, or muscle loss.

Try cutting calories too much, though, and all of those problems can spiral out of control.

These problems are only made worse when you also dont eat enough protein. Study after study after study has shown that people who follow a high-protein diet lose less muscle, experience less hunger, and burn more calories when they restrict their food intake.

So, those are the two biggest dietary sins people make when trying to lose weight fast.

The picture gets even worse if we look at how most people train

The 3-Step Skinny Fat Solution

Many people equate cardio with weight loss and figure the more they do, the more weight theyll lose.

Cardio does help burn calories and thus fat, but do too much while dieting and youre asking for a world of hurt.

Specifically, youre going to . . .

Lets take a closer look at each of these downsides.

Due to various cellular adaptations that occur when you do endurance training, it can directly interfere with strength and muscle building.

In other words, the more cardio you do in general, the harder it is to gain muscle and strength.

Furthermore, the longer your cardio sessions are, the more pronounced this interference effect is.

This is why it isnt surprising that doing too much cardio when your calories are restricted for fat loss, which already reduces anabolic hormone levels and protein synthesis rates, is an easy way to accelerate muscle loss.

Research shows that cardiovascular exercise alone guarantees little in the way of fat loss. In fact, many people wind up even fatter than when they began their cardio routines.

How could that be, youre wondering?

No, its not metabolic voodoo, muh hormones, or anything other than this:

For many people, doing a lot of cardio causes them to be generally hungrier than usual, which makes it easier to accidentally eat too much (thereby preventing fat loss or even causing fat gain).

This is especially true if youre not following a meal plan or tracking your food intake. Its all too easy to eat back the few hundred calories you burn after a cardio workout without even realizing it. A couple handfuls of nuts and a piece of fruit or a protein bar is all it takes.

As youll soon learn, you have to control your calories to lose a significant amount of fat. Theres just no way around it.

Unfortunately, one of the prices you have to pay for a slimmer waistline is an impaired ability to recover from your training. When youre dieting to lose weight, your body just cant bounce back as quickly as youre used to.

So, what happens when combine calorie restriction with hours and hours of cardio each week?

Sure, youll burn a lot of calories, but youll outpace your bodys ability to recover from your workouts and experience symptoms of overtraining, like

Even worse, research shows that doing too much cardio while cutting can also accelerate muscle loss.

All this is why I recommend a lot less cardio while cutting than many fitness gurus. (More on this in a minute.)

Recommended Reading:

How Much Cardio You Should Do (and How Much Is Too Much)

This is often recommended as a way to increase calorie burning and really bring out the muscle definition.

Not so much.

Dropping the weights and increasing the volume (reps) doesnt automagically produce more muscle separation, density, or vascularity. It doesnt even burn that many more calories compared to high-weight, lower-volume (strength training) workouts.

Instead, you want to do a lot of heavy compound weightlifting when youre cutting, and well talk about why soon.

How to Measure and Improve Your Body Composition

Use this workout and flexible dieting program to lose up to 10 pounds of fat and build muscle in just 30 dayswithout starving yourself or living in the gym.

Over the years, Ive tried many different weight loss diets and training regimens.

Some have worked better than others, and over time, Ive been able to glean enough workable principles and insights and then organize them into an extremely effective and efficient weight loss regimen.

With this regimen, you can lose about a pound of fat per week (more if youre overweight, slightly less if youre lean looking to get really lean) while preservingor possibly even gainingmuscle.

Even better, you wont have to struggle with hunger and cravings, your energy levels wont crash, and your workout performance will be minimally impacted.

Heres how you do it:

Lets learn more about each.

In order to lose body fat, you need to regularly feed your body less energy than it burns.

This is known as creating a calorie deficit, and it causes the body to slowly whittle down its fat stores to meet its daily energy demands.

Mainstream weight loss gurus, magazines, and diet books try to sidestep this scientific fact because, well, its boring. Most people are sick of hearing about calories and want something else.

Thus, instead of educating you on how the human metabolism actually works, experts make up stories about how a single bogeymana hormone (insulin) or food (carbohydrate), for exampleis making you fat, and that all you have to do is eliminate it from your life and the pounds will fall off.

This kind of highly restrictive dieting can result in weight loss, but not for the reasons that most people think.

Its not the elimination of starches, meats, or sugars, or the fasting or meal timing that causes the weight loss. Its just this:

Once you remove all of your favorite higher-calorie foods (like carbohydrate and sugar-rich delights) and replace them with lower calorie options, your calorie intake naturally plummets.

And then, by extension, you lose weight.

This approach can work to a point, but it usually fails in the end for a number of reasons.

First, its unsustainable.

It often creates large calorie deficits that lead to all of the problems related to starvation dieting that we discussed earlierhunger, cravings, lethargy, and muscle lossand you can only go for so long without the foods you actually like to eat before you lose the will to keep going.

Second, its easy to mess up.

Regardless of how restrictive your diet is, if you eat too many calories, youre going to stop losing weight.

Research shows that this is exactly what happens to many people who follow these types of diets: slowly but surely, they eat more and more of the foods theyre allowed to eat, and eventually, the weight loss stalls.

All this is why I recommend that you control your calorie intake and maintain an aggressivebut not recklesscalorie deficit of about 25%.

In other words, when you want to lose fat and not muscle as quickly as possible, I recommend that you eat about 75% of your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE).

A number of studies have borne this out, including one conducted by scientists at the University of Jyvaskyla.

They divided high-level, lean (10% body fat or less) track and field athletes into 2 groups:

Both groups followed a high-protein diet and trained as usual.

After four weeks, the group eating the least number of calories lost four pounds of fat and little to no muscle, whereas the group that maintained the smaller calorie deficit lost only a little fat.

In other words, doubling the size of the calorie deficit resulted in significantly more fat loss, but not muscle loss.

The group that followed the 750-calorie deficit wasnt starving, eitherthey still ate over 2,000 calories a day.

This jives with what Ive experienced with my own body and with the thousands of people Ive worked with.

Are low carb diets safe to follow? | All Natural Ideas

Posted: March 13, 2019 at 12:45 am

Are low carb diets safe to follow? There is a lot of conflicting information, so lets examine some of available research to answer this question.

Walk into any supermarket, not just Whole Foods, and youll see in the racks at the checkout aisle more than a couple of low-carb-geared magazines. These range from from Paleo publications to other natural health titles.

More and more people are starting to realize that fat isnt the enemy. Dietary fat is not why heart disease and strokes and obesity and diabetes rates continue to rise. Nope. The macronutrient culprit responsible for many diseases is carbohydrates, especially high-glycemic carbohydrates.

High glycemic carbohydrates quickly convert into sugar. They do so almost immediately upon making contact with saliva. Even a piece of wheat bread gets broken down into simple sugar quite quickly. How this metabolic process is responsible for a wide range of inflammatory-rooted diseases is a topic for another article. But heres a brief primer.

Your cells receive sugar via the hormone, insulin, which is secreted by the pancreas. When the cells are full of sugar, and cannot accept any more, the excess sugar gets stored as body fat. Excess body fat can cause inflammatory disorders.

Its easy to see why low carb diets have become more popular. All it takes is the initial consciousness about the danger of eating excess high-glycemic carbohydrates, some willpower, as well as satisfying recipes.

So are low carb diets safe to follow? That really shouldnt be the question . The question should be is it safe NOT to follow a low carb diet?

There are a lot of misconceptions about low carb diets. But consider that a search on the U.S. National Library of Medicine (under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health) website, aka Pubmed.com for low carbohydrate diets yields over 6000 studies.

Before reviewing what a few of those studies say about the safety of low carb diets. Lets get back to the question: Is it safe to follow a low carb diet? To answer, we need to get a few thingsout of the way first.

Low carb diets can indeed be unhealthy. But so can any diet. A low carb diet can be unhealthy if the fats and proteins eaten in the carbohydrates place are toxic. Eating unspoiled, all-natural fats and lean, high-quality protein is essential to eating a safe low-carb diet.

That means that you cant eat anything with trans fats. That means no packaged pastries that have hydrogenated or partially-hydrogenated oils. These are used to extend the shelf-life of cakes, cookies, pastries and the like. Trans fats can lead to heart disease. Other examples of spoiled fats include cooking with seed- and vegetable oil, such as corn, most Canola oils, sunflower, cottonseed, soybean, etc. These fats are highly inflammatory and can easily spoil once exposed to cooking heat.

Eating a lot of factory-farmed meat is another example of not eating a safe low-carb diet. Factory farmed meat can also cause a smorgasbord of inflammatory diseases. The pork industry still has a long way to go until most pork products can be deemed safe to eat for a low-carb diet. Opt for wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chicken and eggs and wild game and organ meats.

And now, lets talk about carbs.

One may argue when looking at the question, Are low carb diets safe? is that it depends on the amount of restriction on carbohydrates. Is it safe to follow a low carb diet if you eat just a tiny bit of pasta, a portion of rice, a sliver of cake, a shot glass worth of orange juice, a kernel of corn, and a handful of chips?

No. Even if the examples of carbs, above, totalled just 50 grams of carbs, which is towards the low-end of a low-carb diet, the type of carbs matters very much. The healthiest carbs to eat on a low-carb diet are the same type of carbs everyone should be eating. And those are low-starch vegetables and a small amount of fruit. Think spinach, broccoli, kale, chard and other nutrient-dense veggies. Limit fruit intake to a handful of organic berries and one whole piece of other low-sugar fruit such as a green apple.

But lets now take a look at some of those studies proving that low-carb diets are beneficial for health.

A study published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology concluded that a variation of a low-carb diet (a specific type of ketone diet) improved physical performance and cognitive function in rats, and its energy-sparing properties suggest that it may help to treat a range of human conditions with metabolic abnormalities.

This study, published in Nutrients concluded A diet that is reduced in carbohydrates may optimize improvements in other type 2 diabetes risk factors, including insulin resistance and hyperglycemia. The researchers also said, However, these findings are in contrast to current guidelines for the prevention of type 2 diabetes in adults which recommends a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet.

Does the research answer the question, Are low carb diets safe?

One might say that the above study was several years old, before the recent surge in popularity of low-carb diets began in earnest. However, this study was published in August of 2016.

Another study, this one published in Digestion, concluded, Diets low in carbohydrates favor a healthy gut microbiome and improve glucose tolerance, in people with type 2 diabetes.

So not only are low-carb diets good for your external belly, theyre also good for your gut.

These are just a few of the hundreds of studies proving that low-carb diets are safe. Perhaps one day, federal government guidelines will encourage low-carbohydrate diets as a way to defeat the ever-rising obesity and diabetes epidemic.

The Program – Clean Start Weight Loss

Posted: March 12, 2019 at 12:42 am

We want to help you feel good about yourself again, and improve your health and well-being in the process. Before you throw in the towel, explore the Clean Start Weight Loss Program, where you can achieve: rapid and long-lasting weight loss faster than you ever thought possible.

Since 2011, over 80,000 people have safely lost weight on our rapid medically-supervised weight loss program.

The rapid Clean Start Weight Loss Program includes prescription hormone injections which require a licensed healthcare provider who can prescribe medications. In addition, you will complete a full medical history, and will be required to get lab testing to ensure the program is safe and will work for you. A key part of the program is the injection of Fat Burning lipotropic injections, which can only be administered by a licensed nurse or physician.

What makes the Clean Start Weight Loss Program different from other weight loss programs is that we have numerous treatment programs available, and we will design a program that is customized to you. We dont just offer one weight loss program, but we will design a customized weight loss treatment plan specifically designed for you. The diet doesnt include packaged diet food, vitamins or weight loss pills; all of our programs including eating real food you can find in any grocery store. To ensure you safely lose the weight, the program will be supervised by a licensed healthcare provider (either a: Physician (MD), Physicians Assistant (PA) or Nurse Practitioner(NP) ).

The results I have seen are amazing. The first 43 day session I lost a total of 49 pounds went on a vacation to Hawaii for two weeks and with maintenance I was able to not gain a pound. Because of the wonderful success of the program I enrolled for a second session and I was able to lose 36 more pounds for a total of 85 pounds. Wally, lost 85lbs 5 years ago!

Yes, the Clean Start Weight Loss Program is the same weight loss program that was the basis of a popular Dr. Oz Show. Our program is proven to target fat, not muscle. So the weight loss you will receive, is going to be primarily fat loss, not muscle. In addition, since you are primarily losing unwanted fat, you will see your metabolism reset to a normal range allowing you to more easily keep the weight off long term! Unlike the Dr. Emma weight loss program seen on Dr. Oz, our patients arent hungry, and also lose fat, not muscle.

Low Testosterone in Men

If so, you are not alone, and testosterone therapy may be just what the doctor ordered to put you back on a path to peak performance!

If you are a man over 35, most likely you have heard about low testosterone, or Low-T and have wondered about the benefits of testosterone therapy.

Our medical director, Dr. Alvaro Ocampo, is an expert in the use of testosterone replacement therapy. He has been treating men with low-T for more than 20 years! Dr. Ocampo understands his patients and what it feels like when you can no longer do the things you enjoy in life.

He has developed testosterone therapy programs that have helped thousands of men over 35 regain their strength, energy, and vitality, so they can have the confidence to continue to do the things that they love!

You need testosterone you whole life. In fact testosterone production begins in the womb in male babies!

When it comes to the production of testosterone, your level peaks in your late teens. Your testosterone level will stay around the same throughout your 20s. Once you hit 30, that all start to change. The steady decline begins, and will continue at a rate of about a 2% loss every year through your 40s and 50s. By the time you are in your 70s, if you do nothing to control or reverse the loss, you can expect you testosterone level to be half of what it was at your peak.

For some men, the decrease in production has little effect. But for many men, as you hit your 50s, 60s and older, you may actually start to feel the impact of the reduced level, experiencing low testosterone or Low-T. Symptoms of Low-T include reduction of libido or sex drive, a feeling of reduced virility or vitality, changes in mood, erectile dysfunction, decreased energy, reduced muscle and bone mass, and memory issues.

In a nutshell, testosterone therapy is a safe and effective way to turn back the clock, and return your testosterone levels to what they were when you were younger. Will that literally make you 20 again? No, but testosterone therapy has many positive benefits for men over 40.

Although testosterone therapy is generally safe for most men, there remains many misunderstandings about testosterone therapy. Most of these misconceptions surround a mistaken belief that testosterone therapy is risky, even deadly!

Nothing could be further from the truth! A lot of the confusion comes from the illegal use of steroids by body builders and other athletes. Doctor-prescribed testosterone therapy is nothing at all like that.

Beyond that, there have been reports that even proper medical use of testosterone therapy increases your risk of heart attacks or cancer.

However, in the last 2 years there have been several major studies in respected and peer reviewed medical journals that have found neither of these is true. Men undergoing testosterone therapy have no greater risk of getting prostate cancer than the general population.

And, a recent study found that testosterone therapy does not increase the risk of heart disease. In fact, that study concluded that long term testosterone therapy could even prevent heart attacks!

Testosterone therapy is a safe and effective way to regain your vitality and get more out of life.

If you have low testosterone levels, also known as Low-T, andropause, or male menopause, you will feel its effects in four aspects of your life. Low testosterone impacts your physical wellbeing, your ability to perform sexually, your cognitive abilities and your emotional states. If you have low testosterone you may be experiencing:

If you are feeling any or all of the above, testosterone replacement therapy my help return you to the man you once were.

But dont just take our word for it. Hear what this 56 year old HealthGAINS patient has to say.

You can keep going along like you are, feeling old, tired and used up. Or you can be like our hundreds of satisfied clients and regain your ability to enjoy life and do great things!

You can keep going on like you are now, feeling down, depressed, putting on weight having trouble in bed, and just feeling like your best days are behind you, or, you cancontact us today, and start living again!

No. Testosterone therapy is designed to replace, or make up for, the testosterone your body is no longer making. It does not stimulate the production of more testosterone. However, as part of your program you will be introduced to diet, fitness, behavioral, and lifestyle changes that can help keep your testosterone levels above normal.

Testosterone therapy is the safest, and most effective way to increase your testosterone levels. However, we will also show you how you can boost your natural hormone production through proper sleep and by supporting your body with the right foods and vitamins.

Exercise, particularly High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT has been shown in clinical studies to increase your production of testosterone and growth hormone.

As with the administration of any drug, there could be side effects to testosterone therapy. However, such side-effects have been largely exaggerated. Your doctor will make you aware of any possible side-effects. Our experts have the experience to keep any potential side-effects to your testosterone therapy to a minimum.

We provide testosterone therapy as part of a medically supervised overall health and wellness program. You will be constantly monitored during your testosterone therapy, and your testosterone prescription will be adjusted as necessary throughout the course of your testosterone therapy program.

Of course, as with any medical procedure, your individual results may vary depending on your age, gender, and general medical condition. However, you should expect a generally safe, and positive experience from your testosterone therapy.

Since all of our testosterone treatment programs are customized to your individual needs and lifestyle, the amount of time you need to be on testosterone replacement therapy varies. Most men start to feel the results of testosterone therapy in the first few weeks of treatment. Again, how long you remain on testosterone therapy, depends on your age and symptoms, but you can expect your initial program to last from six months to a year.

Testosterone therapy works by returning your testosterone levels to what they were when you were younger, stronger and more vital. Therefore, testosterone therapy returns all of those bodily functions that run on testosterone, back to their peak performance. That results in stronger muscles and bones, less fatigue, more energy, more efficient burning of fat, and improvement of sexual function.
