Not Just Weight Loss, Fibre-Rich Diet Can Lower Risk Of PTSD As Well- Know What This New Study Says – NDTV

Posted: February 15, 2021 at 3:47 pm

Fibre-rich diet can be good for weight loss and digestion

A fibre-rich diet is popular many reasons. It is weight loss-friendly, diabetes-friendly and also good for digestion. Now, a new study found that people who fibre-rich foods every day were at lower risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). According to a study published in Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology, eating junk food like pastries and chocolate was found to be associated with higher risk of PTSD. The study was conducted on more than 27,000. It was found that in one in 20 people reported experiencing PTSD. Those who reported eating multiple-fibre rich foods every had lower odds of developing PTSD.

Having said that, researchers aren't sure if intake of fibre is really linked to a protective effect on mental health, or if it is other factors like poverty, which affects people access to nutritious foods. There is a possibility, however, that eating fibre-rich foods can improve communication between gut and brain, said Karen Davison, nutritional epidemiologist and co-author of the study.

Foods like whole grains and oats are rich in soluble fibre. This provides good bacteria to the gut and helps in improving gut flora. A healthy gut is not just great for the body, but also for the mind, studies have found.

This study further adds that dietary fibre plays an important role in the relationship between he gut and brain. When the body processes fibre, gut bacteria releases short chain fatty acids-compounds that reduce inflammation in the body.

Previous studies have found short chain fatty acids can improve metabolism as well as immunity.

Whole grains, oats, fresh fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds and vegetables are examples of foods rich in fibre. All of these foods are a part of a healthy and nutritious diet, which is good for your physical, mental and overall health. Below are some more benefits of a diet rich in fibre:

1. Regularises bowel movements: If you are someone who gets constipated too frequently, a fibre-rich diet is a must for you. They help in formation of bulk of stools and eases bowel movements, thus keeping constipation at bay.

2. Helps in controlling blood sugar: Fibre-rich foods slow down the release of sugar in blood stream, thus preventing any spikes in blood sugar. A fibre-rich diet can also lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

3. Weight loss: Fibre-rich foods are filling in nature. They fill you up quickly and make you feel full for longer. They can reduce your appetite and also bring down your calorie intake, which is a key requirement for those who are trying to lose weight.

4. Lowers cholesterol: Foods like oats, beans, flaxseeds help in reducing low density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol. They bring down total blood cholesterol levels and can thus be beneficial for your heart as well.

It is important to note that you need to up your fibre intake for good health, but definitely not overdo it as it can result in gas, bloating and intestinal cramping. The MayoClinic suggests that men aged 50 or younger need 38 gms of fibre in a day; men aged 51 and above need 30 gms of fibre in a day. Women aged 50 or younger need 25 gms of fibre in a day; women aged 51 and above need 21 gms of fibre in a day.

To meet your daily recommended intake of fibre, the best thing to do is a consult a dietitian or a health expert.

Dear Dietitian What is included in a healthy vegan diet? – Kiowa County Press

Posted: February 15, 2021 at 3:47 pm

Dear Dietitian,

My daughter, who is 18, recently changed from a vegetarian to a vegan diet.When she was eating mostly vegetarian, she did eat chicken for protein. But everything else she ate was considered junk food - chips, candy, sodas.Now that she is vegan, she is still not eating nearly enough vegetables or protein to maintain good health. I have tried to help with this by giving her a daily multivitamin, and she has been taking iron supplements because she was told she was low in iron.

I would like to know what is considered a healthy vegan diet and what a vegan should be eating on a daily basis to remain healthy and not become malnourished.


Dear Renee,

With a little extra planning, a vegan diet can easily provide adequate protein and calories to maintain health. The requirements for a healthy vegan diet are the same as a regular diet, but of course, the meat is replaced with plant proteins. For those who aren't familiar with a vegan diet, it is comprised entirely of plant foods. There are no meats, fish, or animal products, such as milk or eggs.

Our bodies need about 1 gram of protein per kilogram body weight. For a 150-pound woman, that amounts to about 70 grams of protein per day. Some vegan sources of protein are peanut or almond butter, beans, legumes, and soy. There are even burgers made with plant protein in today's market, but pay close attention to the saturated fat content.

There are some vitamins and minerals to be concerned about on a strict vegan diet. The first is calcium. An eighteen-year-old woman needs 1000 mg of calcium per day. This amount can be easily obtained in fortified almond, soy, or rice milk.Most of these products are also fortified with vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium. Vegetable sources of calcium include broccoli, kale, and tofu. Still, it is not advised to rely only on vegetables, as the volume needed to attain calcium goals is difficult to reach. Go with a supplement or fortified plant milk.

Vitamin B12 is only found naturally in animal products. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is 2.4 micrograms per day. A B12 deficiency may lead to neurological problems. Some cereals are fortified with this vitamin, and the multivitamin should contain it, too.

Another mineral of importance is iron. There are two types of iron, heme and non-heme. Heme iron is found in red meat and pork, whereas non-heme is found in plants. Heme iron is better absorbed by the body. Plant sources of iron include spinach, nuts and seeds, and beans. Premenopausal women need 18 mg of iron each day, and as you stated, your daughter is taking an iron supplement. Vitamin C aids in iron absorption.

You mention your concern about your daughter's consumption of junk food. At this age, she has to choose to eat healthfully. There are some things you can do to help, but you may need to tread lightly. Prepare healthy snacks and be sure they are readily available. A fruit bowl in the kitchen, nuts, and hummus with pita chips are healthy, satisfying snacks. Prepare a tasty vegan meal: pasta with sauteed vegetables and roasted pine nuts, bread, and sorbet for dessert. You may add cheese for the non-vegans at the table.

The bottom line is your little girl is now a grown-up (almost), and she has to learn to make healthy choices for herself.

Until next time, be healthy!

I Did Intermittent Fasting For Almost 4 Years Here’s Why I Stopped and Actually Lost Weight – POPSUGAR

Posted: February 13, 2021 at 10:53 am

Trigger warning: The following story discusses eating disorders and disordered eating behavior.

At the beginning of my four-year intermittent fasting (IF) journey, I was experiencing so many health benefits such as decreased bloating, improved mental clarity and sleep, and I was able to lose the baby weight I'd been holding on to for four years. It was going so well in the beginning that I thought I'd do IF for the rest of my life. But as I slowly started to try more restrictive methods of IF to reach my weight-loss goals, it started to not work, and I was actually gaining weight.

I was feeling so frustrated, sad, and hopeless because I was losing control over my relationship with food. Here's my story of how intermittent fasting started to fail me, and how giving it up for intuitive eating actually helped me have more peace with food and achieve my body and fitness goals.

In case you're unfamiliar with intermittent fasting, it involves incorporating periods of fasting (not eating), whether it be fasting for certain hours out of the day or fasting certain days out of the week. There are tons of different methods of IF, and when I started in February 2017, as with anything new in my life, I went all-in and tried just about every style. I started with 16:8, where I fasted for 16 hours and ate in an eight-hour window, from noon until 8 p.m. I found success, but had the misguided notion that "more is better," so I shortened my window to 17:7, then to 18:6.

During this time, I was doing hour-long rigorous CrossFit workouts four to six days a week at 5:45 a.m., and shortening my eating window to six hours made me so hungry in the morning, that pushing through to make it to noon became a huge mental struggle. So I ended up eating earlier, telling myself I'd just eat from 9 or 10 a.m. until 3 or 4 p.m., but not eating dinner with my family was terrible for many reasons (the most important being that I didn't want my kids seeing me not eat), so that didn't work.

I also tried other methods of IF such as Eat Stop Eat (fasting 24 hours once a week), 5:2 (eating normally five days a week and eating 500 calories two days a week), and Alternate Day Fasting (fasting every other day). It was too hard to exercise regularly and do these more restrictive IF methods (I was too hungry!), so I stopped working out, but that was a terrible move for my mental health.

During that time, losing weight became my goal, and I tried Fast 5 (eating in a five-hour window), 20:4 (also called the Warrior Diet, eating from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m,), and when that wasn't enough, I also tried 20:1 (also called One Meal a Day or OMAD). I'd lose weight initially with those methods, but hunger caused me to binge eat during my eating window. I even went so far as to try longer fasts like 48-hour fasts (I even tried a seven-day water fast!), but again, those were unsustainable. Thankfully, my body's instincts to eat took over, and I just ended up gaining weight.

"Research shows us that dieting, which includes intermittent fasting, is a consistent predictor for weight gain," explained Kara Lydon, RD, LDN, registered dietitian, certified intuitive eating counselor, and owner of Kara Lydon Nutrition. The majority of people who lose weight while dieting end up gaining the weight back long-term, and up to two-thirds will gain more weight than when they started.

The physiological mechanisms your body activates when in starvation (aka dieting) mode, such as increasing your hunger hormones, decreasing your fullness hormones, and releasing neuropeptide Y (a hormone that stimulates food intake, specifically carbs), often lead to overeating, she added. Most dieters will be familiar with what's known as the restrict/binge cycle, although they may not know that exact name for it. This goes something like this: you "restrict your food intake, then feel extreme hunger and food preoccupation, which leads to a binge episode, followed by intense feelings of guilt and shame, which brings you right back to restriction in an effort to 'gain control,' but it just perpetuates the same cycle over and over," Lydon explained.

When your body is in starvation mode, it is essentially perceiving the restriction as a famine. "From an evolutionary standpoint, our bodies are designed to fight famine and starvation in an attempt to help us survive. Our bodies don't realize it's 2021 and what it's perceiving is actually self-imposed," Lydon said.

Another physiological mechanism that might be activated is energy conservation, which can cause you to stop getting your period, mess with your digestion, or make you feel cold and tired all the time. "This is your body shutting down or redirecting energy from non-essential systems in the body. This might also look like your body holding onto its fat stores in an attempt to conserve energy," Lydon said. I did experience feeling cold and tired, and I was bloated from bingeing, but this also explains why I got leaner when I started eating more regularly.

Trying so many IF methods and feeling like I was failing and fighting against my body was unbelievably exhausting and frustrating. Ultimately, it became detrimental to my well-being because it led to disordered eating habits. I was constantly thinking about food, what I was going to eat, when I was going to eat, when I was going to fast and I became depressed because my weight was slowly creeping up. I felt stuck thinking my only option was to fast longer, and that's when it started to feel like an eating disorder.

"Intermittent fasting is essentially glorified disordered eating," said Lydon. She explained that fasting for weight control purposes is recognized by eating disorder professionals as an eating disorder behavior, but unfortunately the diet industry has marketed IF as an easier way to lose weight compared to other traditional calorie-restricted diets.

Fasting (or any arbitrary food rules, for that matter) disrupts your body's innate ability to produce physiological cues to tell you when to eat and when you've had enough, Lydon said. "When you override your body's hunger cues, your body, in an attempt to help you survive, triggers certain physiological mechanisms to encourage you to eat." This explains why I felt so preoccupied with food, and why I felt so out of control when I did eat.

Dealing with intense hunger made me cranky, bingeing made me feel guilty (and so bloated!), and constantly thinking about food and how to lose the weight that bingeing was causing all took up so space in my brain.

Lydon explained that intermittent fasting can also interfere with your social life, since you may avoid plans with friends that involve food. Fasting definitely affected plans with my family, depending on which method I was doing at the time, and that's one of the parts about IF that I really hated.

I also felt sad about not being able to cook and bake when I wanted to. I'd sit in bed flipping through my vegan cookbooks, or watching vegan recipe videos on YouTube, just to satisfy that need. It was so sad. I felt like I was missing out on so many levels.

My husband noticed my weird behavior around food, and he was definitely worried. He felt bad that I was imposing all these lame food rules on myself. I finally realized that while IF did have positive effects on my health at first, I had taken it too far. If I saw a friend struggling like this, I knew I'd step in and help her. I had to be that friend for myself.

The true driving force behind me deciding to stop doing IF and to focus on healing my relationship with food was because I have a 10-year-old daughter. I knew I wanted to be an inspiring role model for her, to teach her how to have a positive relationship with food and her body, and this was anything but positive. I had to stop this terrible cycle of restricting and bingeing, but I wasn't sure how. I wanted to move toward intuitive eating, but when I tried jumping in, I just felt out of control and feared gaining even more weight.

In the spring months at the beginning of the pandemic, like everyone else, my world was flipped upside down. I stopped going to my gym, was stress-baking and overeating, but was still eating from noon until 6 or 7 p.m. most days. I was eating a somewhat junky, mostly plant-based diet, and ended up gaining even more weight and not feeling like myself.

It was during one summer night while looking up vegan baking recipes on YouTube that things changed completely. I stumbled upon the Nutritarian diet and Dr. Joel Fuhrman's book, Eat to Live, and immersed myself in all the research I could about whole-food, plant-based diets. I also read The Starch Solution and combined the two and started eating a low-fat, high-carb, whole-food plant-based diet, free of oil. I was already eating lots of veggies, but I increased my starch intake, so I was eating tons of potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans, oatmeal, and rice. I stopped eating salad dressings made with oil, and limited my nut and seed intake.

I loved that this way of eating wasn't a diet, but was all about abundance, focusing on promoting health and preventing disease by eating all the nutrient-dense foods I could. I stopped watching the clock and started listening to my hunger cues.

After a few months, I felt amazing! I realized how much eating breakfast brought me joy. I'd wake up looking forward to my bowl of oatmeal and felt so happy knowing I had full freedom to eat whenever I wanted throughout the day.

I had tons of energy and felt inspired to start rowing and doing yoga every day. I slept well, felt clear-headed, and loved how my mood had improved. I also noticed that my body started to get leaner that really surprised me because I was eating so much food!

I can now proudly call myself an intuitive eater, but it didn't happen overnight. This has been a six-month journey of trusting my body, re-learning how to observe my hunger and fullness cues, and making lots of mistakes. There were definitely times I ate too much, or ate too much of the foods that don't make me feel good. It was interesting watching how my brain reacted to me allowing myself to truly eat when and how much I wanted. At first, it felt out of control, and I was eating a lot. But I had read from intuitive eating counselors that this would happen, that my body was just soaking in the fact that the "famine" was over. That urgency and drive to eat often and eat a lot slowed down after the second month, and was replaced with a sense of calmness and happiness around food.

Now as soon as I get that first glimmer of hunger, I eat. Sometimes it's at 9 a.m., and some days, it truly isn't until noon I have no rules about what times I eat. If I want lunch at 11 a.m., I have it! If I get hungry an hour after I've eaten, I eat again. It's so liberating! What's funny is eating whenever I please has made me think so much less about food.

There are some days that I naturally eat in a seven- to eight-hour window, because that's when I'm hungry, so I asked Lydon if there was a healthy way to do intermittent fasting. I wanted to make sure I wasn't going back to my old, destructive ways. She said, "I always remind my clients that they are the experts of their own bodies. Only you can truly know for yourself if there is a 'healthy way' to do intermittent fasting." The key here is to listen to your body - noticing and honoring hunger cues as they arise and not waiting for some arbitrary time window to allow yourself permission to eat.

If you or someone you know is struggling with disordered eating or an eating disorder, the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) has resources available including a 24/7 helpline at (800) 931-2237.

Can Smoking Weed Help You Lose Weight? – Fatherly

Posted: February 13, 2021 at 10:53 am

The idea of pot smokers as chubby middle-aged dudes who live for junk food and couch surfing is fast becoming obsolete. Plenty of regular cannabis users are far from fat, unhealthy, or lazy. A growing contingent of elite athletes ultrarunners and triathletes among them insist pot actually helps them stick to their diet and exercise regimens and keeps them trim. Some even swear weed has helped them shed pounds.

They may be onto something. Although the science on weed and weight loss is still emerging, some research suggests marijuana might play a small role. Weed is not a stand-in for healthy diet and exercise not by a long shot. But marijuana use also isnt a straight path to becoming an overweight unhealthy mess. Heres what the science has to say.

There is solid scientific proof that THC, the intoxicating cannabinoid in pot, indeed stimulates appetite in many people. Thats why its often given to chemotherapy patients who otherwise feel too sick to eat. THC binds to and activates CB1 receptors, part of the endocannabinoid system, which are located in the stomach, small intestine, and parts of the brain that monitor food intake and enhance eating pleasure.

CB1 is basically your weight gain receptor, says Tom Clark, Ph.D., cannabis researcher and chair of biological sciences at Indiana University South Bend. It is the main one that increases appetite, affects how fast you store the food you eat and reduces your metabolic rate to preserve the calories you consume.

Considering these effects, one could reasonably assume that regular marijuana use would lead to weight gain. Some studies do support this theory. However, the overall evidence is conflicting, and plenty of other research suggests the exact opposite may be true.

For example, a 2011 study showed that people who use cannabis at least three times a week are less likely to be obese than non-users. Similarly, research published in 2013 revealed that marijuana users had better insulin control and smaller waist circumferences. More recently, a 2019 study demonstrated that, over the course of three years, marijuana users maintained lower body-mass indexes than nonusers, something past research has found as well.

On its face, thats some pretty compelling data in favor of weed and weight loss. But these studies must be taken with a grain of salt. They all establish a connection between cannabis and a better body but they dont prove marijuana use is the reason for these outcomes. There could be other factors at play.

All sorts of correlational effects probably contribute to these results, Clark says. For one thing, pot smokers skew younger, so they may weigh less. Maybe these marijuana users also used more tobacco, which is associated with weight loss. Then there are people who are heavy, start smoking pot and just feel better, so they lose weight and attribute it to marijuana when there may not be any physiological effect.

Additionally, many pot smokers drink less booze, a definite contributor to weight gain. Marijuana also eases stress for many people and helps them sleep better, both of which are linked to lower BMI. There is also the pain management factor. If pot eases muscle aches and pains, it may help you stick to your workout plan or even train harder, as some athletes claim it does.

Regardless of all the potential cofactors aside, some researchers believe marijuana still might, in fact, have a direct physiological impact on weight. Clark is one of them. In 2018, he and his colleagues published a paper that, based on data from 17 large-scale studies, lays out a plausible explanation for the lower BMI and obesity rates among cannabis users.

Clark breaks down their theory like this: THC initially stimulates the CB1 receptor, which increases appetite short-termbut this effect doesnt last. Over a 24-hour period, he says the receptor becomes less active, likely leading people to consume fewer calories overall. Meanwhile, evidence suggests THC ramps up metabolism over time. So, based on this theory, even if you indulged the munchies after smoking a bowl, your increased metabolic rate would counteract the effect by burning through those calories quicker than if you werent a pot smoker.

You wouldnt need to smoke a ton of weed to reap these benefits, either. Clark insists even once a week may be enough to keep the CB1 receptors running on low and metabolism revved.

However, he is quick to point out that this is still just a hypothesis. To know for certain whether THC has this impact on weight control, Clark says wed need rigorous human clinical trials. Researchers would have to gather a bunch of people with identical diets and lifestyle habits, divide them in half, give one group pot and the other not, then monitor them over a long stretch of time.

This kind of study wont happen anytime soon, however, because weed is technically still illegal in the U.S. and laughably still deemed a Schedule I narcotic, which severely inhibits research. Complicating matters, Clark says plants like marijuana are notoriously hard to study because theyre complex organisms that vary significantly in makeup from strain to strain.

So, for now, the best we have are theories, and Clarks seems pretty sound. That said, he does not advise making marijuana your number-one weight-loss tool: I think cannabis can help if the side effects are tolerable, but youre better off focusing mainly on diet and exercise.

Healthy Foods That Are Actually Ruining Your Diet – 24/7 Wall St.

Posted: February 13, 2021 at 10:53 am

Special Report

February 11, 2021 2:46 pm

Losing weight is a very common goal year-round. And while eating healthier foods, avoiding junk and fatty foods, and being more physically active sounds simple, the reality is much more complex. Its frustrating when you believe you have been doing everything right not to see the scale budge. What could be wrong? Though the reasons can be many, the answer may also be in what youre eating.

Eating a balanced diet is key, but you have to know which foods have hidden ingredients you want to avoid. Not all foods and rinks are created equal, and many of them you only think are healthy when, in reality, they wreak havoc on your body.

The biggest enemy to your diet is overconsumption of calories, particularly from sugar, processed carbohydrates, and fried foods, according to San Antonio clinical nutritionist Sarah Treat. People are very often unaware of their exact calorie intake, and this is their biggest mistake when trying to lose weight, she explained.

Ultimately, when youre trying to lose weight, you need a calorie deficit, said Jill Maher, a nutrition health coach in Scottsdale, Arizona. You have to burn more calories than you consume. But you also want to avoid artificial ingredients or you may not be as successful as someone eating whole foods, she added.

Something I constantly have to remind my clients is that carbohydrates are not bad, Gabriela Rivera, a nutritionist practicing with clinical nutritionist Kay Spears in San Antonio, Texas. Especially my weight loss clients, they seem to be scared to eat a sweet potato or get intimidated when going out to eat.

Treat agrees. Fruits and vegetables are carbohydrates, and are not bad for you. They are essential for good health, actually. Many of her clients, she said, are also afraid of carbs. I have to remind them of the right ones.

Carbohydrates are an essential macronutrient and are needed for fuel they are needed just like protein and fats. But when eaten excessively, or prepared a certain way (read fried), they can cause weight gain, Rivera added.

To compile a list of 17 healthy foods that are actually destroying your diet, 24/7 Tempo consulted several registered dietitians and clinical nutritionists specializing in weight-loss programs and health coaching.

Like women, men too suffer from menopause, its called Andropause – Free Press Journal

Posted: February 13, 2021 at 10:52 am

Some people use the term male menopause to refer to hormonal changes that men experience as they get older. Men experience symptoms resulting from a decrease in the male hormone called as testosterone. This condition is referred to as andropause or in other words it is called as male menopause. It affects up to 30 per cent of men in their 50s and becomes more prevalent with age, says Dr Chandrika Kulkarni, Consultant Obstetrician Gynecologist and fertility specialist; Cloudnine Group of Hospitals.

Unlike menopause in women, when hormone production stops completely, testosterone decline in men is a slower process. The testes, unlike the ovaries, do not run out of the substance it needs to make testosterone. However, subtle changes in the function of the testes may occur as early as age 45 to 50 and more dramatically after the age of 70 in some men, the doctor said.

Male menopause differs from female menopause in several ways. Not all men experience andropause and also it doesn't involve a complete shut-down of the reproductive organs. Sexual complications may arise as a result of lowered hormone levels. Male menopause can cause physical, sexual, and psychological problems. The symptoms typically worsen as one gets older, she warns.

Watch out for the symptoms: The doctor points out: "The symptom most associated with hypogonadism (low level of hormones) is low libido. Other manifestations of hypogonadism include: erectile dysfunction, decreased muscle mass and strength, increased body fat, decreased bone mineral density and osteoporosis, and decreased vitality and depressed mood. Osteoporosis is twice more common in hypogonadal (low level of hormones) men as compared to eugonadal (normal level of hormones) men (6 vs 2.8 per cent)."

How is Andropause diagnosed and what is its treatment? Dr Kulkarni answers:

It is recommended to test older men for low testosterone levels only if they have signs or symptoms. If an initial test shows low testosterone, the test should be repeated to confirm the results.

The initial treatment for symptoms of male menopause is making healthier lifestyle choices. Healthy diet, regular exercise, adequate sleep, reducing stress levels. These lifestyle habits can benefit all men.

After adopting these habits, men who are experiencing symptoms of male menopause may see a dramatic change in their overall health. It's normal to experience a decline in testosterone levels as one gets older. For many men, the symptoms are manageable even without treatment. If the symptoms are cause hardship, consultation with the specialist is advised. They can provide recommendations to help manage or treat symptoms.

Hormone replacement therapy is another treatment option. However, testosterone replacement therapy has its own potential risks and side effects. Replacing testosterone may worsen prostate cancer and increase the risk of heart disease.

Expert Reveals Key Information That Men Need to Know About Testosterone – KMJ Now

Posted: February 13, 2021 at 10:52 am

Studies have shown that men over the age of 65 may benefit from taking the hormone testosterone. According toDr. Mirkin.comstudies have shown that testosterone increases bone density, raises hemoglobin levels in men with anemia, and improves sexual function. Reviews were mixed on whether testosterone improved heart health, however.

According to a study published in JAMA, testosterone significantly increased plaque in the arteries that lead to the heart. However, another study found that using testosterone gel for threeyears reduced the rate of heart attacks in men by 25%.

Dr. David B. Samadhi, a board-certified urologist, a Newsmax contributor, the director of Mens Health and Urologic Oncology at St. Francis Hospital in Roselyn, New York, and the author ofThe Ultimate MANual: Dr. Samadhis Guide to Mens Health and Wellness, tells Newsmaxthat the hormone is quite often overused because of its macho man association.

Of course, testosterone is a necessary and potent chemical messenger that indeed directly influences many physiological processes in a mans body, Samadi explains. Testosterone influences mens sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution, and muscle mass and strength, among other things. What man doesnt want to look strong, muscular, and ready for sex at the drop of a hat?

But the expert warns that advertisers understand this and play upon this notion by touting unproven products.

I remember a 2014 Time magazine cover story titled, Manopause that featured aprovocative cover and delved into the clever marketing and tons of money spent into making men believe that more testosterone is their quick fix and best remedy for remaining youthful and virile.

Thats why on any given day of the year, you see or hear commercials hawking a testosterone supplement promising to bring back mens youthful vigor, says Samadi.

As a urologist and prostate cancer surgeon, my advice to men is stay away from any spa, TV ads or any nonmedical person selling supplements for low T, he says. Testing testosterone and getting an accurate measurement can be tricky since levels fluctuate during the day.Only a doctor should be checking a mans testosterone levels. Testosterone levels should be checked before 9:00 a.m. when levels are their highest. Also, two tests are necessary to check for accuracy.

Samadi says that testosterone deficiency may or may not have symptoms.

But I can tell you, men with low T are like a car thats run out of gas they may be depressed, lack energy, motivation, and self-confidence, have reduced muscle mass and increased fat mass, loss of body hair, hot flashes, fewer spontaneous erections or difficulty sustaining erections, and have little interest in sex, he adds.

For any man who does have low testosterone, the benefits of hormone replacement therapy usually outweigh the risk., advises the expert. When men are selected correctly for using this therapy, it can be very helpful. Testosterone therapy for these men can help maintain muscle mass, slow osteoporosis, boost energy and stamina, and bring back their love life. But, I stress, its critical these men must be under surveillance with their doctor. Testosterone levels must be checked regularly as one possible side effect of testosterone therapy is it could stimulate the growth of prostate cancer cells.

Men who think they have low T, should talk to their doctor, get tested, and if therapy is needed, follow-up with their doctor periodically to have testosterone levels checked making sure the therapy is not causing any health problems, says Samadhi.
