Feed the Brain and Lose the Fat

03/27/2010 - 4:40am

In theory, losing weight should be easy, right?  You simply need to “eat less and exercise more”.  However, the true fact is that many who try this simple formula fail…sometimes over and over again.  Why? Because obesity, weight gain and weight loss are regulated by the brain. Powerful brain chemicals are sending signals to your body telling you to eat more and hormone imbalances governed by your pituitary gland in your brain are telling your body to slow down your metabolism.  Essentially, your brain is telling your body to store fat and not burn fuel (food).

02/03/2010 - 5:00am

One key substance in a man's body that is more powerful than any other health factor is testosterone. It is linked to nearly every major degenerative disease: Diabetes, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Alzheimer's, etc. Sadly, testosterone deficiency is a most commonly under-diagnosed and misunderstood syndrome. Andropause, often called "male menopause", used to be seen as part of an aging process that was to be accepted gracefully. This decline in male health is marked by a slow or sometimes abrupt drop in blood testosterone levels. Symptoms of Male Menopause Decrease in sexual function and the de...

Weight Loss And Stress - What's Cortisol Got To Do With It?

01/20/2010 - 5:00am

If you have ever had trouble falling asleep and tuned into late night television to distract yourself from the mind spin that can so often occur, you are probably all too familiar with infomercials about Cortisol. As it is commonly and rightly called the "death hormone" or the "fat hormone", it is extremely important that you begin to educate yourself about its impact in order to regain control of your overall health. Cortisol and its maker, the adrenal glands, haven't always given us so many problems; the adrenal glands were originally designed to manage the flight-or-fight stress response, a...

Take the first step in achieving healthy body composition. With fifty million Americans on diets at any time, one would think that we would have arrived at the ultimate solution for weight control by now. But the often-claimed, "simple formula" of "eat less and exercise more" is anything but simple; just ask anyone that has tried.

Cortisol - An adrenal hormone is necessary to handle stress, blood sugar, metabolism, and energy. Deficiencies can cause weight gain, fatigue, and depression. DHEA - Is...
