Fat Guts, Dementia and ED

Bad Choices

If you had to be afflicted with one of these things, which one would you pick?
  • ED
  • Dementia
  • be Weak and Flabby
These are the 3 Fears of men. To what length will you go to prevent these 3 Fears from coming true in your life? You'd do just about anything to steer clear of these outcomes.

But can you do anything about it?

Is it in your power to shape your future or do you just roll the dice and hope for the best?

Well it's true you may be genetically predisposed to get these things. Many a guy has said "my parents were fat and my brother is fat so it's in my genes ..."

That sounds more like an excuse (and it is). Just because you have some unfavorable genetics in your family tree doesn't mean they have to come to bear.

Your Genes

Have you heard of Gene Expression? What about Gene Reprogramming?

Grab this pdf if you want to educate yourself on the topic.

Now some things about you are certainly fixed. Things like your eye and hair color, whether you're tall or short, even if you're naturally good at math or have artistic skills. These are heritable traits.

But other variables, like whether you store body fat easily or tend to burn it as fuel, how quickly your cells age or the likelihood you'll get certain cancers, etc. are more "programmable". This means you have the ability to turn on or turn off these genetic switches.

It's not a single thing you do to flip switches either favorably or unfavorably but rather the sum-total of your various lifestyle choices:
  • what you eat
  • your activity level
  • stress mitigation
  • sleep
  • sunshine and immersion in nature
  • environmental factors like toxins, noise, pollution, etc.

You're not weak and flabby because your dad gave it to you. You're out of shape because, yes you may have genetic predisposition to store body fat, but the real reason is you are flipping the same switches your dad did because you learned your lifestyle skills from him and are emulating his example.

The beauty of gene reprogramming is you can start at any time and begin to reverse the damage.

I suggest reading this white paper. Knowledge is powerful if you combine it with action.

Now, back to the first question. Pick your poison,
  • no morning wood
  • getting Alzheimer's and not recognizing your children or grandchildren
  • or being all pasty white and flabby because you're too embarrassed to take your shirt off at the beach.

What a choice huh?

Here's a secret.

You don't have to change 4 or 5 things to lose fat and build muscle and work on another half dozen factors to improve brain health and still need a separate protocol to fix your sexual health.

No. There are basically a few foundational, lifestyle factors that will address all these issues simultaneously.

You can absolutely improve your brain health by eating the right foods, keeping your brain active (brain gym type activities) and living what's considered a "healthy lifestyle".

Read this book to learn what specific foods and supplements are proven to favorably affect brain health. You'll notice that these same foods are recommended for cardiovascular health as well.

You have the power to get the outcome you desire. Things are not just happening to you. You're making them happen.

Flip the right switches, get your preferred outcome.

Take charge of your life.
