The set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of organisms
This week we will discuss Metabolic Systems with our guest, Francis Fessler. A certified personal trainer and conditioning coach for the last 25 years, Francis Fessler has built a career by designing programs and coaching professional and amateur athletes, celebrities, business professionals, parents and children to achieve their wellness and fitness goals. Throughout his time in the health and wellness world he evaluated, tried and tested countless ‘diet and nutrition plans' and could not find one that had consistent results for both women and men- so he built one. Francis created F2 Wellness and the highly successful F2 Weight Loss Program for not only his clients, but for anyone looking for a simple, successful and sustainable weight loss program. Have you ever experienced tiredness in your muscles while working out and you couldn't continue exercising after a certain point? Have you wondered what can make you lift heavier weights or run longer than you can today? If you have, understanding the mechanism of the body's energy system can help you find answers to these questions. Three metabolic pathways generate the energy required to perform an exercise: the phosphagen pathway, the glycolytic pathway, and the oxidative pathway, together known as the energy systems. Although your body is always using all three simultaneously, depending on the intensity and duration of the exercise, your body will choose from which pathway it will use the largest percentage of its energy. As you may know, all energy used by our bodies is generated from the breakdown of food and drink. The three macronutrients are protein, carbohydrate, and fat. Those are metabolized to create adenosine triphosphate, which is the source of fuel for all body processes, including muscle contraction. Unfortunately, the supply of readily available ATP is very limited. It means our bodies constantly have to produce the substance; otherwise, muscle contraction would stop. This re-synthesis of ATP is done by the three energy systems. The first 10 to 20 seconds of high-intensity physical activity is fueled by the “ATP-CP,” also known as the phosphagen energy system. Once the available ATP is used up, which occurs in a few seconds, a molecule called phosphocreatine is used to re-form ATP in the muscle. This energy system operates very quickly and can bring the highest output of the three systems. However, it is limited by the availability of creatine phosphate, which is usually consumed within 15 seconds. Your body can eventually refill these stores when you rest. This is why this system is most active for athletes who engage in short bouts of very intense, explosive movement, such as a the 50-meter dash or powerlifting. This is also the reason we can sprint at full speed for only a few seconds or lift maximum loads only 1-2 times before requiring rest or a decrease in exercise intensity using another metabolic pathway. The second pathway, the glycolytic pathway, is the primary energy system used for exercise lasting from 15 seconds to three minutes. People running an 800-meter event, for example, use this pathway the most. This energy system uses the glucose stored in the muscle, broken down primarily from carbohydrates, to form ATP. The benefit of this pathway is that it kicks in quickly, but it doesn't make very much energy; it can only supply a maximum of about three minutes of energy. This pathway is responsible for the buildup of lactic acid in our muscles, which contributes to fatigue. For exercise lasting longer than three minutes, the oxidative pathway is used. Unlike the others, this energy system requires oxygen. The increase in respiratory rate meets the oxygen demand during physical activity. The oxidative system is slow, but is also the most efficient. Using fat as its primary energy substrate, it produces enough ATP to sustain longer duration activities, but only at submaximal exercise output. It means fat is the predominant fuel source used during low to moderate-intensity activity, like biking or jogging long distances. Now you are more knowledgeable on how your body relies on each of these systems working together to meet the energy demands needed for activities of daily living and exercise. The system your body will use primarily depends on the type of activities you mostly engage in. The more you train in that particular type of exercise, the better your body adapts to being able to efficiently use that energy system. For example, individuals who have trained in powerlifting can store more phosphocreatine and ATP than a marathon runner or sedentary individual. On the other hand, endurance-trained individuals have better ventilation ability, maximizing oxygen availability for the oxidative pathway. At the end of the day, consistency is key. If you want to excel at a particular type of exercise, just keep doing it and in time, your body will adapt. (Credits: US Army)

We're in the midst of a testosterone crisis. Alarmingly, the average levels of this crucial male hormone have been plummeting, with one seminal study reporting a staggering 1% annual decline in average testosterone levels since the late 20th century.Travison, T. G., Araujo, A. B., O'Donnell, A. B., Kupelian, V., & McKinlay, J. B. (2007). A population-level decline in serum testosterone levels in American men. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 92(1), 196-202. This decline isn't just a number; it's a reality affecting men's health, well-being, and quality of life. Lower testosterone levels have been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, decreased muscle mass, diminished cognitive function, and even a reduced lifespan.Araujo, A. B., Esche, G. R., Kupelian, V., O'Donnell, A. B., Travison, T. G., Williams, R. E., ... & McKinlay, J. B. (2007). Prevalence of symptomatic androgen deficiency in men. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 92(11), 4241-4247. So, to call it a "crisis" is no exaggeration at all. You're in the right place if you're concerned about low testosterone or suspect you may be part of this growing trend. This article breaks down the 17 leading causes of low testosterone—all supported by scientific evidence. It's actionable, understandable information that you can use to take charge of your health. 1. Aging By the time you hit 30, your testosterone levels could start to decline by around 1% each year.Harman, S. M., Metter, E. J., Tobin, J. D., Pearson, J., & Blackman, M. R. (2001). Longitudinal effects of aging on serum total and free testosterone levels in healthy men. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 86(2), 724-731. Why does this happen? Simply put, it's due to a slowdown in testicular function coupled with a decrease in the responsiveness to luteinizing hormone (LH). LH acts like a messenger, telling your testes to produce testosterone. As you age, this messaging system gets a bit sluggish, causing the testes to produce less testosterone.Wu, F. C., Tajar, A., Pye, S. R., Silman, A. J., Finn, J. D., O'Neill, T. W., ... & Lean, M. E. (2008). Hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis disruptions in older men are differentially linked to age and modifiable risk factors: the European Male Aging Study. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 93(7), 2737-2745. A 1% drop might not sound like much initially, but consider this: by the time you're 50, you could be looking at a decline of 20% or more. That's significant. Lower testosterone levels can lead to diminished energy, less muscle mass, a decreased sex drive, and even mood swings. Over time, this could affect your quality of life. You can't stop the clock, but you can buffer its effects. Supplements, nutrition, and exercise can all slow the loss significantly, but an intense resistance training program is one of the most effective.Vingren, J. L., Kraemer, W. J., Ratamess, N. A., Anderson, J. M., Volek, J. S., & Maresh, C. M. (2010). Testosterone physiology in resistance exercise and training. Sports Medicine, 40(12), 1037-1053. 2. Excess Body Fat When it comes to testosterone, carrying excess weight is like a double-edged sword. On one end, body fat—especially abdominal fat—contains an enzyme called aromatase that converts testosterone into estrogen, the primary female sex hormone.Cooke, P. S., Nanjappa, M. K., Ko, C., Prins, G. S., & Hess, R. A. (2017). Estrogens in Male Physiology. Physiological reviews, 97(3), 995–1043. So the more fat you have, the more of your limited testosterone is converted into estrogen. This inevitably leads to even lower levels of free testosterone in the body. On the other end, low testosterone can lead to an increase in body fat, setting off a self-perpetuating cycle. Lower testosterone levels slow your metabolism and decrease muscle mass, making it easier to gain body fat.Saad, F., Aversa, A., Isidori, A. M., & Gooren, L. J. (2011).

Episode Summary:Have you ever noticed when you have a strong craving, it's usually NOT because you're actually hungry? Whether it's finishing a whole bag of chips or a sleeve of cookies at night while watching TV. Don't worry, you're not alone. We've all been there. Whatever emotions drive you to overeat, the end result is often the same. You feel better temporarily, then the emotions return along with guilt… Then you eat to feel better… And the cycle continues.In this episode, we'll discuss:How to distinguish between hunger and cravingsRoot causes of emotional eatingFour steps you can implement to break the cycle“Feelings aren't going to kill you. It's uncomfortable, but it's not a bad thing. We are human. We are meant to cry and to be sad. If you don't face what the emotion is, you're never going to take action to deal with what needs to be dealt with.” - Sarah HaasHighlights:03:45 - Emotional Eating06:20 - Reasons Why We Turn to Food11:38 - Hunger vs Cravings17:04 - Letting Your Emotions Flow Through YouImportant Links:Midlife Muscle & Metabolism 30-Day Strength Training ProgramGet It Here >>Free Light & Easy Lunch Meal Prep Guide + RecipesGet It Here >>Free Rev Up Your Metabolism eBookGet It Here >>Website: sarahhaaswellness.comFacebook: Sarah Haas WellnessInstagram: @sarahhaaswellnessYoutube: Sarah Haas WellnessThanks for Listening:Thanks so much for listening to my podcast!

What's the main thing you need to lose weight, have great brain function, be able to exercise, and generally live a healthy, fulfilling life? It all comes down to metabolic health. And for years, we've been overlooking one of the earliest indicators that your metabolic health is headed in the wrong direction. This is something you can improve on your own through better habits… and can potentially help prevent some of the common pitfalls of aging. But only if you know how. On today's episode of the podcast, I'm joined by neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, Dr. David Perlmutter, who is going to explain what this indicator is, its dangers, what your levels should be, and what you can do to turn the metabolic ship around. It's an incredibly important episode for all of us, so don't wait to listen.

Did you know that muscles are metabolic powerhouses that can help prevent diseases like Alzheimer's and diabetes? Dr. Martin has often referred to muscles as bins for the storage of glycogen. The bigger your bins, the better. That's why Dr. Martin always tells listeners to get strong. Weight resistance exercises help build muscle and improve overall health. Muscles also secrete anti-inflammatory myokines, produce testosterone and growth hormones, which ultimately help burn fat. Dr. Martin explains in today's episode.
Our bodies and brains are different during each phase of our cycle, so our food, exercise, and self-care should ideally be different each week, too. If you've been living in a ‘same-thing-everyday' way, you're not alone. I used to believe in having the same routine every day. And it is definitely a widespread cultural belief, especially within “hustle culture”, that we are supposed to repeat the same rituals every 24 hours- have the same morning routine, exercise the same way each week at the same times, eat the same things… I even used to preach and coach that way. But I have since then learned that this insistence on doing the same thing day-in and day-out only caters to the male hormonal biological rhythm. Men follow the same predictable pattern everyday: the 24-hour circadian rhythm clock. Women's menstrual cycles are on a different clock- the “Infradian Rhythm.” As opposed to the Circadian Rhythm, the internal clock in both men and women that creates hormonal shifts over the course of a 24 hour period that helps us toggle between sleep and wake… The Infradian Rhythm is unique to women's bodies, and is a ~28 day internal clock. Think of the circadian rhythm as the sun, and the infradian rhythm as the moon. Men are simply the sun, while women are complex moons. But so much of what is put on as a society - how we work, how we show up day to day - was created based on a society where men did all the work. They could show up the same day after day. But obviously that isn't the case anymore - women now account for more than half of the college-educated labor force in the United States, overtaking men, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of government data in 2023. That's why it's so important and empowering as a woman to be in tune with your body and take steps towards better health!

Muscle loss is a common yet preventable part of the aging process. As we age, muscle mass naturally decreases due to a decrease in physical activity and slowed metabolism. This process is known as sarcopenia, and it can have long-term health implications if not addressed. In this article, we'll discuss the importance of muscle, why it's so difficult to build in the first place, and how to prevent age-related muscle loss. The Importance of Muscle Preservation Higher levels of muscle mass offer myriad health benefits. One significant advantage is that muscles act as metabolic powerhouses. They burn calories even when we're at rest, helping to maintain optimal body weight and prevent obesity.Wolfe, RR. "The underappreciated role of muscle in health and disease." The American journal of clinical nutrition 84.3 (2006): 475-482. Muscle tissue also plays a pivotal role in improving insulin sensitivity, reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes.Srikanthan, Preethi, and Arun S. Karlamangla. "Relative muscle mass is inversely associated with insulin resistance and prediabetes. Findings from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey." The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism 96.9 (2011): 2898-2903. The greater the muscle mass, the more glucose our bodies utilize, reducing the chance of diabetes development. For mobility, muscle mass contributes to better balance and stability, which becomes crucial as we age.Landi, Francesco, et al. "Sarcopenia as the biological substrate of physical frailty." Clinics in geriatric medicine 31.3 (2015): 367-374. This enhanced stability reduces the likelihood of falls and injuries, contributing to a longer and healthier life. Muscles also regulate our body's response to inflammation and infection. A study by Johns Hopkins University found that individuals with solid muscle mass had a stronger immune response.Fiuza-Luces, Carmen, et al. "Exercise is the real polypill." Physiology 28.5 (2013): 330-358. Moreover, preserving muscle mass aids in maintaining mental well-being. Research reveals a strong correlation between muscle strength and improved mood, reduced anxiety, and decreased instances of depression.Gordon, Brett R., et al. "Association of efficacy of resistance exercise training with depressive symptoms meta-analysis and meta-regression analysis of randomized clinical trials." JAMA psychiatry 75.6 (2018): 566-576. So, muscle mass is not just about physical strength and aesthetics but a keystone of our overall health and longevity. Why Is It So Difficult to Build Muscle? Muscle hypertrophy, or the increase in muscle mass, is a complex process that becomes increasingly difficult as we age. This phenomenon is orchestrated by several factors, including hormones, proteins, and our bodies' connective tissues. Testosterone and growth hormone are two crucial players in muscle building. These hormones function like biochemical foremen, directing the construction and repair of muscle tissue. Testosterone promotes protein synthesis, the process by which the body uses dietary protein to build new muscle fibers.West, D. W., & Phillips, S. M. (2012). Associations of exercise-induced hormone profiles and gains in strength and hypertrophy in a large cohort after weight training. European journal of applied physiology, 112(7), 2693-2702. On the other hand, growth hormone stimulates cell growth and regeneration, playing an integral part in muscle repair and recovery.Devesa, J., Almengló, C., & Devesa, P. (2016). Multiple effects of growth hormone in the body: Is it really the hormone for growth?. Clinical medicine insights. Endocrinology and diabetes, 9, Cmed-88159. However, with advancing age, our bodies naturally produce less of these hormones. This reduction results in slower muscle growth and recovery, making muscle building more challenging.Pritzlaff, C. J., Wideman, L., Weltman, J. Y., Abbott, R. D., Gutgesell, M. E., Hartman, M. L., ... & Weltman, A.

This is an IMPORTANT episode. If you have ever felt confused, pressured, dismissed or embarrassed about your health and how you are feeling this episode is for you. It is FULL of important research and information on the many ways in which some women manage and sometimes mismanage their health and healthcare. In this beautiful conversation with Susan Salenger we discover so many important tips and takeaways about our health as women. Susan Salenger is the author and researcher behind the brilliant book, Sidelined: How Women Can Navigate a broken healthcare system. Sidelined examines the many ways in which some women manage and sometimes mismanage their health and healthcare. Her research explores how women who are typically the medical gatekeepers for their families, tend to be extremely conscientious about taking care of themselves, yet at the same time inadvertently undermine their own care. Susans research reveals how conflicted many women are about getting help for our health and the medical decisions they ultimately make.

Is it possible to turn back the clock on our metabolism, burn fat, and increase longevity, all while being able to enjoy the food we eat? According to our guest today, it most certainly is. Dr. William Li is an internal medicine specialist, scientist, and New York Times best-selling author. His groundbreaking work in the field of angiogenesis – which is the process of developing new blood vessels in the body – has led to 40 new medical treatments for cancer, diabetes, and obesity, to name a few. In his new book, Eat to Beat Your Diet: Burn Fat, Heal Your Metabolism, and Live Longer, Dr. Li shatters some of the myths we've been conditioned to believe about metabolism, weight loss, and the role fat plays in the human body. In this wildly informative episode, we take a deep dive into what we should actually be eating and doing to be the healthiest, fittest version of ourselves! “People go crazy about insulin spikes and glucose spikes. You know what? I sort of want people to kind of chill out about that because those things do happen. But if you listen to your body and be reasonable, your tank is running on empty, go fill up, don't eat too much, don't overflow your tank. Okay? If you're at the gas station and when you put the nozzle in, and it goes click and you know the gas tank's full, you put the nozzle away, and you drive off. Now, imagine if there was no clicker and the gas tank filled up. What would happen? The gas would come out of the tank, spill down the side of the car, around the tires, around your shoes, and guess what? You would be standing in a dangerous, flammable mess, toxic mess. That's what happens when you overeat.” – Dr. William Li What we discuss in this episode: A clear and simple explanation of human metabolism. The truth about body fat. The importance of listening to your body and being mindful while you eat. Sleep, fasting, and burning fat. Dr. Li's routine to optimize his metabolism. How excess body fat slows your metabolism. Why we gain weight in middle age and what we can do about it. How chronic stress can cause weight gain? The different types of fat. How the body's defenses can be activated by food. How our immune system is linked to our metabolism. Inflammation and excess body fat. How to create balance in the body through food. The dangers of processed foods to the metabolism and immune system. Foods that can lengthen telomeres. How foods with vitamin C can reduce inflammation.

Irvin Dazl St-Louis is an athlete, dancer/street performer, and was a former vegan for 21 years. Fortunately, after a series of events, Dazl decided to reintroduce meat into his diet in 2017, which culminated in going full Carnivore in 2022. Transitioning from not allowing any meat into his house, to going entirely meat based was a dramatic change, and certainly surprised his kids. But dramatic changes can lead to dramatic results, and now at 48, and full Carnivore, he is healthier and more active than ever. Dazl has been featured on many podcast episodes with some of our former guests, including Dr. Anthony Chaffee, host of the Plant-Free MD platform, and James Leman, also known as The Carnivorist on Instagram, who is also the host of the wonderful Carnivorist Chats Podcast.

In this enlightening episode, I had the distinct honor of speaking with Dominic D'Agostino, Ph.D., an esteemed Associate Professor at the University of South Florida. He is also a Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC), dedicating his vast expertise towards optimizing the health and resilience of both warfighters and astronauts. His remarkable background, which spans from neuropharmacology to physiology and from neuroscience to medical biochemistry, offers a unique perspective that makes him a thought leader in his fields.Our in-depth discussion delved into the intricate details of metabolic health, with particular emphasis on the ketogenic diet and its impact on various conditions including epilepsy, cancer, and even Alzheimer's. Dr. D'Agostino shared invaluable insights into how the body's metabolism is intimately connected to overall health and well-being, including how ketone supplementation can play a pivotal role in brain health. The conversation didn't stop there. We further ventured into the intriguing realm of CNS oxygen toxicity, discussing its profound implications on the brain, and the potential therapeutic avenues that might mitigate its effects. I am confident that our listeners, whether familiar with these topics or just diving into the world of metabolic health, will find immense value in Dr. D'Agostino's insights. So, grab your headphones, find a cozy spot, and tune into this episode.Dr. Dominic P.

Our bodies and brains are different during each phase of our cycle, so our food, exercise, and self-care should ideally be different each week, too. If you've been living in a ‘same-thing-everyday' way, you're not alone. I used to believe in having the same routine every day. And it is definitely a widespread cultural belief, especially within “hustle culture”, that we are supposed to repeat the same rituals every 24 hours- have the same morning routine, exercise the same way each week at the same times, eat the same things… I even used to preach and coach that way. But I have since then learned that this insistence on doing the same thing day-in and day-out only caters to the male hormonal biological rhythm. Men follow the same predictable pattern everyday: the 24-hour circadian rhythm clock. Women's menstrual cycles are
