Prostate, simple weightloss...

Commented on February 26, 2014

Hi!

I've been eating primal for awhile. And I have lost a bit of weight doing that. I do eat carbs, have cheat days etc. But overall its impacted my body. At the moment I am 6'4" and about 105 kgs. But that includes a bit of a gut, some fat.

So, I am trying to figure out my enlarged prostate issues right....and the medicines are all pretty screwed. The surgery is kinda insane. And even the herbs I took seem to have profound effects that I wasn't comfortable with.

But I hear that lowering body fat, is associated with less symptoms. And it lowers your estrogen (which my current adiposity cant be helping). So actually that seems to be a good way to go.

But I don't have _great_ will power. I have some motivation here obviously. And I am sick, anything I do needs to be time fexible, because of that.

So what is a simple or basic way, I could create a weightloss? Is calorie counting all important as a start point? What kind of exercise could I bust out when well, but isn't going to do my head in either?

I know this is "classic" stuff, but I would deeply appreciate any considered advice on the topic from you guys :)

Exactly. Estrodiol is now strongly linked with BPH, and body weight is negatively associated with lower risks and symptoms. I've been doing medium carb for a while (probably 100-150 grams). Low carb (under 100) didn't quite agree with me. I am interested in intermittent fasting. Can you think of any good informative sources on the topic?

If only it was bullet-proof, then we probably couldn't even call it spam...

Pastured artisan Spam perhaps?

Uh, wtf are "fat releasing foods"?

OJ is a sugar bomb, not too much better than a soda, insulin wise.

Eating many small meals is a bad idea, it raises overall insulin levels.

Don't spam, we like bacon, not spam.

Lowering body fat is a good thing because the more fat you have, the more aromatase you produce. Aromatase is an enzyme that converts testosterone into estrodiol, not a good thing if you have prostate issues.

You can use DIM to disable aromatase, and while it's not goitrogenic (it comes from broccoli), it sadly turns off ATP production. So it might be best to limit it.

Some sort of chelated zinc is very useful, as is lycopene.

Take a look at the Intermittent Fasting stuff. It's going to be hard at first, especially if you're not yet adapted to burning fat.

Simple ways to do Weight Loss

  • Indulge in fat releasing foods. They should help keep you from feeling deprived and binging on higher calorie foods.
  • Treat high-calorie foods as jewels in the crown.
  • After breakfast, make water your primary drink. At breakfast, go ahead and drink orange juice.
  • Eat five or six small meals or snacks a day instead of three large meals.
  • Walk for 45 minutes a day.

I'm definitely an obnoxious spammer.
