My new book, Dumping Iron, is now available, in both paperback and e-book formats
Dumping Iron: How to Ditch This Secret Killer and Reclaim Your Health is a game-changer in the world of health and fitness. The accumulation of excess iron in the body, a condition that affects perhaps the majority of adults, leads to much higher risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and shorter lifespan.
High iron levels affect men much more than they do women, for the simple reason that men’s iron is on average much higher.
Dumping Iron shows how to measure your iron levels, what the test numbers mean, and how to go about lowering iron if necessary.
Humans are adapted to a low-iron environment, so once iron is in our bodies, it virtually never goes away. Our new, high-iron environment leads to iron accumulation, and to ill health and early death.
Iron is the secret killer that no one is telling you about. Finally, in Dumping Iron, the scientific and medical data that indicts iron is assembled in one place.
Over the past few decades, aerobic exercise has been touted as a uniquely health-promoting activity. Yet Americans are fatter than ever. Toss cardio into the ash heap of history and find out why strength training means less body fat, how it prevents heart disease and cancer, and how to implement a strength-training program.
The science of aging has made huge advances in recent years, and has found a number of interventions that slow or reverse aging. The program outlined in this book requires nothing expensive – and in fact costs next to nothing, other than some self-discipline – and is solidly backed by the latest research in anti-aging science.
Age, diet, hormones, and levels of specific vitamins and minerals can help or hurt men’s health, strength, and virility. This book details the most important supplements and dietary factors that enable men to build muscle, lose fat, increase testosterone, fight aging, and recover the energy of their youth.
Chronic fatigue sufferers are often told that their condition has no clear cause and that it has no cure. Smash Chronic Fatigue shows that chronic fatigue has specific causes, and therefore concrete steps can be taken to treat them. Using lifestyle changes, diet, and inexpensive supplements, chronic fatigue can be greatly relieved and, in many cases, altogether cured. The author did it himself, and using his techniques and extensive research, you can too. The causes of chronic fatigue as well as every step to be taken are backed by peer-reviewed science, and thoroughly explained to the reader.
What causes people to become overweight or obese? Despite the many simplistic statements coming from diet and fitness books and gurus, the causes can’t be boiled down to any one thing, though some are much more important than others. Many say that exercise is the most important factor, yet Americans are exercising more than ever, and are fatter than ever. The decades-long craze for low-fat eating has had the opposite effect than what our health establishment intended: it made us fatter and sicker. What are we doing wrong, and why do so many people fail at permanent weight loss? Top Ten Reasons We’re Fat explains why.
