Working Out But Not Getting Anywhere?

Working Out But Not Getting Anywhere?

FRUSTRATED WITH YOUR RESULTS – Dr. Rob America’s Fitness Doctor®

This morning I already visited with a patient who stated, “Doc I’m working out, but I don’t seem to be getting anywhere?” My question to him and to you is, “Are you employing all the elements to ignite your metabolic fire?”

When you build a fire you need all the elements to create that fire. You need kindling material-twigs, burning material-wood, and an ignition source or spark. If you are missing one of these materials you are going to have difficulty starting and maintaining your fire.

Building a better body is not that different than building a fire. You need to use all the elements and the right materials to build a metabolic fire to help you maintain a stronger, leaner, healthier body. Eating a healthy diet is the kindling material to keep that fire always burning. Exercise is the wood. There are many ways to design your fire. You can arrange the wood in a pyramid, tepee, lean-to, star, cross ditch or log cabin. You choose. There are many forms of exercise. Now water is the spark. Water helps to cushion the organs of the body, enables the diffusion of gases, elimination of toxins, cools the body, and allows all the transport and reactive mechanisms to take place in all the body tissues. Without water, the spark, you cannot have a fire.

Going further, it is important to know that as we age our hormone levels gradually decline and have a direct effect on our metabolic system. If you are not seeing the results from your training and nutrition program you may just may need to restore testosterone levels. In men the symptoms of aging are often the result of imbalances in multiple hormones. After age 20 male hormones begin a slow gradual decline, some falling about 14% every decade. By the time a man reaches 40, he’s lost almost half the necessary hormones he had at 20 years old. But you don’t have to be middle-aged or older to experience hormone imbalance. Hormone deficiencies are strongly associated with the onset of these serious diseases that often lead to disabling conditions:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Strokes
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Vascular dysfunction
  • And, Metabolic Syndrome!

The only cure for hormonal deficiency is restoration of hormone balance!

Many of the symptoms of male hormone imbalances come on very gradually. You may not notice them at first, but as more symptoms appear and become worse over time, they rob you of your youth and vitality. These symptoms may include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Night sweats or hot flashes
  • Mood swings or irritability
  • Muscle loss or weakness
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Increased body fat
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Memory loss
  • Heart palpitations
  • Sleep apnea or insomnia
  • Constipation or increased bowel movements
  • Male breasts

When you combine all the necessary elements; healthy eating, regular exercise, water and hormone optimization, you create a metabolic fire inside your body. Then you will get the results that you desire! Leave one or more of them out, and you will not achieve the desired result.
