Ten Ways to Enhance Your Metabolism


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

One of the keys to losing weight is to take steps to rev up your metabolism. There are a number of ways to achieve this, and burn calories faster and more efficiently. Allow us to provide some tips! Build Muscle to Increase Metabolism One of the best ways to increase your metabolism is to increase your muscle mass. Basal Metabolic Rate refers to how many calories that your body ambiently burns while you are at rest. Muscle burns more calories per hour than any other form of tissue, and the more muscle mass that you have, the higher that your basic metabolism will be. Fat is a storage mechanism, and does not burn as many calories. Each pound of body fat you have will burn two calories on its own each day. Muscle, on the other hand, will burn six calories daily. On top of this, when you work out your muscles, they burn even more calories, and after a good anaerobic workout, all activated muscles will burn calories more quickly. High Intensity Cardio for Increased Metabolism Aerobic activity is also a fantastic way to increase your metabolism. High-Intensity Interval Training is a form of exercise in which you engage … Read more »

Testosterone and Geriatric Frailty


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

Testosterone and Hormone Deficiency Associated with Physiological Decline in Elderly Men It has long been known that Low-T affects male sexual health in a profound way, leading to sexual insufficiency as well as reduced libido. There is also a growing understanding with regard to how Testosterone affects male masculinity and physiological health. There is a large push in the medical literature right now to scientifically evaluate how Testosterone Deficiency affects geriatric health and wellness. Australian Elderly Low-T Study A recent study was published by Australian researchers and presented at the 16th Annual International Congress of Endocrinology. With this study, researchers presented strong evidence that geriatric men with Low-T or other forms of sex-hormone deficiency experienced double the risk of experiencing physiological decline over the course of a two year period when compared to men of the same age with comparatively high sex hormone levels. The lead researcher for this Elderly Low-T Study was Benjamin Hsu, a representive of the University of Sydney Australia. He and his research partners collected medical and health information from over 1300 men all at least seventy years of age, which received health exams between the years of 2005 and 2007, which also received a second … Read more »

As men grow older, maintaining sexual health and performance is near the top of most men's minds.

Low-T and Your Health


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

Low-T and Your Health How Does the Body Produce Testosterone? The production of Testosterone is the result of a cascade of hormone signals, with a cycle beginning at the hypothalamus. When the hypothalamus receives the signal to produce Testosterone, it releases a hormone known as Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone, usually referred to in scientific literature as GnRH. In both sexes, GnRH travels through the Hypophyseal Portal System from the Hypothalamus to the Pituitary, where it stimulates the production of two important hormones: Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). From here, the sex hormone cycle differs for both sexes. In women, Follicle Stimulating Hormone prepares for the release of an egg by stimulating the production of fluid pouches known as follicles which store the developed egg in preparation for fertilization. Luteinizing Hormone, on the other hand, encourages ovulation. In men, on the other hand, the two hormones are associated with the production of Testosterone and Sperm. Luteinizing Hormone travels to the testes, where it activates cells known at Leydig Cells that are responsible for the production of Testosterone. Follicle-Stimulating Hormone travels to Sertoli Cells in the Testes, which encourage the production of sperm. Some Testosterone that is produced by the testes … Read more »

New Hampshire Testosterone Clinics for Low-T and Hormone Therapy


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

optimistic female sermorelin nurse 300x200Testosterone Deficiency is one of the most common forms of Hormone Imbalance that men experience. Testosterone Levels are at their lifetime peak during puberty and on through the late twenties. Beyond age thirty, Testosterone Decline is strongly correlated with age. Men have a peak ability to produce Testosterone which is then impacted by other factors such as activity level and body composition. While exercise, diet, and other actions can improve your Testosterone Production, your body still has a max capacity for Testosterone secretion which is gated by age. Many doctors refer to the hormonal changes caused by declining Testosterone as Andropause. While changing habits can lessen the symptoms of Low-T for many patients, eventually, the only practical means of treatment is Bio-Identical Testosterone Therapy.

Doctor wearing white coat 300x200We all know that Testosterone has some profound effects on male psychology, physiology, and sexuality. It even has some compelling benefits for women too. As we delve deeper into the sociological implications of Testosterone, we continue to learn of new and interesting ways that Testosterone alters our perception and our actions. We also learn more about how it protects and facilitates health and wellness. Let's go over some recent developments in Testosterone Research in the last year! Testosterone Reduces Aversion to Risk While Alpha Males have long been associated with getting things done, there are some potential downsides to putting too much confidence in your abilities. Researchers analyzed over 3,000 hedge fund managers based on their Testosterone Levels. Men with higher Testosterone Levels tend to have wider faces than those with average and low Testosterone Levels. Researches grouped investors by the shape of their face and analyzed how successful they were at investing. Perhaps surprisingly, those with less Testosterone (exemplified by their slimmer face) outpaced their Testosterone-laden associates by around 6% annually. Men with higher Testosterone Levels were also more likely to take chances on risky stocks and make unethical business decisions to further their gain. Testosterone Makes Men More … Read more »

Weight Cycling and the Problem with Crash Dieting


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on September 9th, 2019

racing bike 1616963_640 300x200One of the common misconceptions about losing weight is that dieting is the best means by which to do it. Most people also think that dieting is incredibly tricky. While it is true that many struggle with dieting, most people do lose weight when they go on a diet. The problem is that, over time, willpower falls and people go back to their old, poor habits, regaining the weight that they lost successfully. So the biggest problem isn't losing weight for most individuals, it's maintaining and continuing weight loss. This is known as weight cycling. Weight Cycling is defined as a series of periods of purposeful weight loss and accidental weight gain, generally caused by failed diet attempts. One of the most frustrating aspects of weight cycling is that it can actually lead to weight gain! This is because the body stores fat more readily per calorie consumed when food becomes scarce. So while you lose weight during your diet, your body stores more fat per calorie. When you give up on your diet or lose your resolve, most people start eating much like they did before they started the diet. This causes them to gain weight because their bodies … Read more »
