10 Science-Based Strategies To Maximize Testosterone

Paleo Inc Boost Testosterone

Testosterone (T) is pretty important for men. That is, if you want to avoid the decidedly undesirable symptoms of low testosterone such as suboptimal prostate functions,[i]decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, decreased volume of ejaculate, loss of body and facial hair, weakness, decreased bone density, decreased lean body mass (less muscle), increased body fat, fatigue and anemia (iron deficiency).[ii] Recent evidence also strongly suggests that T-deficiency predisposes men to various chronic illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis (weak bones).[iii]

Yeah, we don’t like the sound of any of that, either.

If you’d rather do all you can to naturally keep your T levels high (and your manhood healthy!), keep reading!

10 Paleo-Friendly Ways To Blast Those Stubborn Last 15 Lbs

Paleo Inc Weight Struggles

Even though you’ve cleaned up your diet and sweated away quite a few pounds, you may find your scale suddenly seems stuck—right before the final 5 or 10 or 15 pounds melts away. This last-few-pounds plateau is common… and frustrating.

What makes the last 15 pounds so hard to lose? One reason could be a decreased metabolic demand: As you lose weight, the number of calories your burn just going about your day decreases, to the tune of 20 fewer per day, per pound that you lose. This makes the final few pounds harder to lose than the first 20 or 30 or more.

But don’t worry—there are still ways to jump start the last phase of your slimming program. Here’s 10 of them!

Gary Collins:  This is Gary Collins and Heath Squire of “The Primal Show” and today we have guest Dr. Leon Chang. What makes Leon unique is he is obviously an MD, but he owns a CrossFit and he lives a primal lifestyle and so does his wife who is also a doctor as well, a PhD. What we’d like to talk about today is how you found the lifestyle and how you got involved in CrossFit, and Primal, and Paleo.

Dr. Leon Chang:  Sure, thanks for having me. To start with how we got into CrossFit, one of my colleagues her husband was actually a trainer at 24 Hour Fitness. He was a manager at one of the local branches and he found CrossFit. At the time, both Alessandra and myself were maybe 15, 20 pounds overweight, weren’t really doing much physically, and both of us have always been active early in our life.

How to Naturally Boost Growth Hormone

Human growth hormone (hGH or GH) is sometimes called the “fountain-of-youth” hormone, and for good reason.

The pituitary gland (a small gland near the base of the brain) is where both the manufacture and release of human growth hormone takes place. Growth hormone is primarily known to promote growth in children and adolescents, but has also various important metabolic functions throughout adult life.[i]

As it’s name suggests, GH is responsible for enhancing muscular growth and strength, burning fat and maintaining the immune system. It also helps boost energy levels, libido, skin elasticity, and mental acuity.

Paleo Diet Truths & Myths Debunked By Dr. Loren Cordain

Gary Collins:  Hi. This is Gary Collins and Heath Squier. Today we have Dr. Loren Cordain. He created the original “The Paleo Diet.” How long ago now has it been Dr. Cordain? It’s been quite a while.

Dr. Loren Cordain:  Yeah. My first book came out in, I think, January of 2002.

Dr. Cordain:  Yeah. It’s been almost 14 or more years.  I revised it in 2010. I’ve written a couple other books as well.

Gary:  Yes. We just want to make it clear that the Paleo diet that phrase gets used interchangeably a lot. But you were the one who coined the Paleo diet with your original book, as far as, getting it out into the mainstream, actually exposing the Paleolithic hunter‑gatherer diet to the masses.

Is Paleo a Fad Diet?

paleo-chart

The Paleo Diet is NOT a fad, it IS a lifestyle. How many times have you been asked, “Is Paleo a fad diet”? I know I’ve been asked that question more times than I care to remember. So I decided to address it in writing. The Paleo Diet IS a lifestyle for sure. It will change everything about you. It will improve your health, which in turn, improves your life. If you feel healthier, you tend to want to work harder and smarter. Hopefully, this in turn, will lead you to be wealthier. It doesn’t always work that way but most of the time I’ve found that it does.

The concept of the Paleo Diet was most notably brought forth by Dr. Loren Cordain who is the world’s foremost authority on the evolutionary basis of diet and disease, according to his website. He wrote the books, The Paleo Diet in 2002 (revised in 2010) and The Paleo Diet for Athletes in 2005 (revised in 2012), and has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles and abstracts. Along with Robb Wolf, who wrote the Paleo Solution, these two men have undoubtedly helped advance the Paleo movement.

Top 10 Paleo Diet Struggles & How to Overcome Them

processed-food

Today, I am going to discuss the top 10 Paleo Diet struggles and how I overcome them. You may have other struggles that are not on my list but I have found these to be my top ten. This list is in no particular order and will most likely change as I continue to follow the Paleo lifestyle. Hopefully, this list with my resolutions included will be of some help to you. Let’s just get started, shall we?

1.     It is just so expensive

This particular struggle is kind of a tricky one because at first, it seems as if this lifestyle is so much more costly than the previous one. But in reality, eating this way has saved me so much in health, stress, and most importantly, money. At first, the Paleo food seems very expensive in regards to dollars spent but if you think about it, you end up saving in the long run. Why you ask? Well, you will not eat as many times per day; you will not crave sugary, junk foods; and you will not have to eat so much at once. Your meals tend to sustain you longer and will satisfy your sweet tooth. Another way this lifestyle protects your wallet is that you will not need to visit your doctor as much. You WILL be healthier which in turn, saves you from the expensive doctor visits.

Top 5 Reasons Paleo Wraps™ will Change the Way you Eat

Tuna-Salad-Paleo-Wrap-5

Why will Paleo Wraps™ change the way you eat? Well, quite frankly, it allows for so many refreshing options to return to the Paleo table, so to speak. Let me address the several reasons for this, starting with the addition of burritos and sandwich wraps to my Paleo plan. Being that I cannot eat white/wheat flour or corn, which primarily is the ingredient of almost all tortillas on the market, this newfound creation is a Godsend. The versatile Paleo Wraps™ allow for me to re-experience so many meals that were taken from my palate when I made the switch to the Paleo lifestyle. I can now enjoy, once again, that breakfast burrito with Bacon, Egg, & Avocado stuffed inside these tortilla alternatives. It’s making me hungry just thinking about it.

Paleo Ingredients to Make Paleo Products

coconuts

What is a Paleo ingredient? Surprisingly, it is quite large of a list. The goal here is to use as organic and natural as possible. One of the main ingredients that you’ll want to use on a regular basis is Coconut. This Paleo ingredient is a staple item to any Paleo follower’s regimen. Coconut is extremely versatile and can be used in so many forms such as, coconut oil, coconut flour, coconut water, coconut meat, coconut sugar and so on. First, take coconut oil, for instance. The oil from a coconut is rich in nutrients and healthy fats. This definition was taken straight from Wikipedia:

“Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. Throughout the tropical world, it has provided the primary source of fat in the diets of millions of people for generations.”
