How To Reset Female Hormones for Weight Loss

How To Reset Female Hormones for Weight Loss

Do you have extra weight that’s been difficult to lose, despite eating well and working out? If so, you aren’t alone. Most people don’t realize that eating healthy foods and going to the gym aren’t the only factors to consider when it comes to weight loss – hormone imbalances also play a role.

If your hormones are out of balance and misfiring, this could potentially lead to a slower metabolism, a bigger appetite, and greater fat storage. Each of these factors can make it difficult to lose weight for individuals who are obese. The good news is there are several things you can do to reset your hormones and shed the excess pounds.

How To Reset Yours Hormones for Weight Loss

Speak with a Healthcare Professional

If you’ve been struggling to lose weight despite lifestyle changes, it could be helpful to speak with a healthcare professional. They can evaluate your current health, conduct a medical history, and run various blood tests to ensure there aren’t other issues that could be preventing you from reaching your ideal weight.

Practice Stress Management Techniques

Experiencing stress every so often is a normal part of being human, but experiencing the stress hormone on a consistent basis can really throw all of our hormones off and quickly lead to hormonal imbalances. Stress management techniques such as yoga, meditation, or even just taking a few deep breaths throughout the day can help manage stress levels and calm the brain and nervous system. A few minutes of stress management techniques can make a big difference in restoring our hormone balance.

Limit Processed Foods

While a hormone imbalance can lead to weight gain, limiting your processed food intake can still play an important part in weight loss. Consider including a variety of foods in your diet such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats, whole grains, and other whole foods. If you need guidance as to which specific foods you should eat, speak with a healthcare professional. They can help you incorporate these changes into your meals on a consistent basis.

Avoid a Hormone Reset Diet

While it might be tempting to follow a strict diet of only specific foods based on hormone reset diet claims, diets are rarely effective in the long run. The best way to lose stubborn belly fat and excess weight is by eating whole foods and limiting processed foods (as mentioned above).

The only time you should follow a specific hormone diet is if you were instructed by a medical professional due to certain health conditions (such as needing to regulate your blood sugar).

Get Active

Exercising on a daily basis is also important when it comes to staying healthy, losing weight, and feeling your best. This can include daily walks, jogging, playing pickleball, swimming, or any activity that you enjoy doing. Being active is an overall great way to restore your hormonal balance to healthy levels, especially when done consistently.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking enough water throughout the day ensures you’ll stay hydrated, which helps to support a healthy metabolism.

Get Enough Sleep

Sleep is critical for regulating our hormones (and therefore our weight). It’s recommended to get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night.

Consider Weight Loss Injections

FDA-approved weight loss injections such as Semaglutide can be extremely effective at helping women lose weight. With small weekly injections, you can potentially experience significant weight loss to help you look and feel your best.

Semaglutide is GLP-1 (glucagon-like-peptide-1), a receptor agonist. This means that it mimics the hormone GLP-1, which regulates hunger and food intake. When Semaglutide is taken on a weekly basis, it suppresses the hormone glucagon to prevent feelings of hunger. It also delays gastric emptying, making you feel more satisfied after a meal.

It’s typically recommended to receive the injections in combination with incorporating a healthy diet and exercise into your daily routine for maximum results.

Benefits of Semaglutide Treatment for Weight Loss

Semaglutide injections offer many benefits to qualified candidates, including:
  • Significantly reducing weight when combined with changes in diet and exercise
  • Providing consistent, safe weight loss over an extended period of time
  • Requiring only one injection per week
  • Helping you to look and feel healthier
  • Diminished risk of heart and cardiovascular disease upon achieving a healthy weight

How Does Tirzepatide Cause Weight Loss?

How Does Tirzepatide Cause Weight Loss?

Losing weight can be challenging, especially for men as they age. If you’re someone who has tried working out and eating a healthy diet and still seems to be struggling to shed extra pounds, tirzepatide might help. 

In this article, you’ll learn what tirzepatide is and how it works to help men lose weight.

What is Tirzepatide?

weightloss

Tirzepatide, sold under the brand name Mounjaro, is a new weight loss drug. It can be used to help men lose unwanted pounds and reach their ideal weight. While it has previously been used to help individuals with diabetes, it can potentially be effective at helping people lose weight.

Tirzepatide is administered as a subcutaneous injection on a weekly basis for up to 16 weeks. Periodic treatment can be administered as needed following this time period. The exact amount of dosage will vary from person to person based on each individual’s health, weight, and specific weight loss goals. The dosage is slowly increased over time, with most individuals noticing a change in weight between 4 to 6 weeks after beginning the injections.

When tirzepatide is combined with a healthy diet and exercise, it can potentially help you achieve maximum results.

A recent SURMOUNT clinical trial of tirzepatide showed that individuals lost up to 15.7% (34.4 pounds) of body weight on 15 mg of the drug compared to placebo (3.3%, 7 pounds). Additionally, individuals that were taking 10 mg of tirzepatide achieved average weight reductions (average weight loss) of 13.4% (29.8 pounds). 938 adult participants with obesity and type 2 diabetes participated in the study.

The study also showed that 81.6% of individuals on 10 mg and 86.4% of individuals on 15 mg achieved at least 5% of body weight reduction.

How Does Tirzepatide Cause Weight Loss?

Tirzepatide works as a weight loss medication in a variety of ways:

weightloss

Appetite Suppression

Since tirzepatide is a GLP receptor agonist (glucagon-like-peptide-1), it mimics the hormone GLP-1 that is known for regulating hunger, which results in individuals eating less food. Additionally, it also mimics the GIP hormone (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). This hormone is known for increasing the amount of glucose in the body, which can lead to a feeling of fullness.

Delayed Gastric Emptying

Tirzepatide slows down the rate at which food is emptied into the intestines, leaving it in the stomach longer and creating a feeling of satisfaction and fullness.

Increased Energy

Tirzepatide can potentially lead to increased energy, which results in moving more often throughout the day and burning more calories.

Benefits of Tirzepatide

Tirzepatide injections could potentially offer numerous benefits, including:
  • Reducing body weight, especially when combined with following a healthy diet and exercising regularly
  • Serving as a weight management drug for consistent weight loss over an extended period of time
  • Diminishing risk of heart and cardiovascular disease upon achieving a healthy weight
  • Helping you to look and feel healthier
  • Requiring only one injection per week

Is Tirzepatide FDA-Approved?

Tirzepatide is not yet FDA-approved. While it is believed to be effective in helping individuals lose weight, there is still much being learned about the benefits it can provide.

Potential Side Effects

The SURMOUNT clinical trials showed that the most common adverse events can include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Vomiting

More severe side effects could include kidney failure, allergic reactions, changes in vision, pancreatitis, and others. It’s important to speak with a healthcare professional about the risks associated with tirzepatide and to determine if you’re the best candidate for this medication.

Tirzepatide Key Takeaways

  • Tirzepatide could potentially be effective for losing weight
  • It can be most effective when paired with a healthy diet and exercise
  • Injections are often administered on a weekly basis for up to 16 weeks and periodically as needed following this time period
  • We are still learning about the full range of benefits tirzepatide can provide

ED Treatment Options

FullName(Required)

Erectile dysfunction, also known as ED, is common in men as they age. The specific causes can be due to restricted blood flow to the penis, side effects from medications, conditions such as Peyronie’s disease, and changes in hormone levels. 

The good news is there are multiple treatment options available, ranging from prescription drugs to injections and acoustic wave therapy. If you are someone who is experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms associated with ED, there’s a good chance a treatment option exists for your specific needs and situation.

  • GAINSWave®
  • P-Shot
  • Testosterone Replacement
  • Trimix
  • Cialis/Viagra

Benefits of ED Treatment

While each of the above-mentioned ED treatments will vary slightly, the overall benefits include:

  • Increased ability to achieve and maintain an erection
  • Stronger and longer-lasting erections
  • Improved confidence and mood
  • Enhanced sex drive

The above treatments can potentially restore erectile function so that you can get your confidence back.

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

For men with erectile dysfunction, it can be difficult to get or maintain an erection. The symptoms can include:

  • Difficulty achieving an erection
  • Difficulty maintaining an erection
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Premature ejaculation

It’s also possible to experience a decline in mental health and confidence, as the above-mentioned symptoms can be difficult to cope with in life.

To diagnose erectile dysfunction, a doctor will ask questions about your symptoms and conduct a detailed health history and medical evaluation. They might also draw a small sample of blood to further examine your hormone levels.

Mask Group (17)

What is GAINSWave® Treatment for ED?

GAINSWave® is a non-invasive treatment that increases blood flow through the use of low-intensity sound waves. It’s a completely natural, safe solution for improving sexual health that provides long-lasting benefits with no downtime required. As men age, it’s common for blood flow to the penis to decrease. This thins out existing blood vessels, which decreases sensitivity and makes it more difficult to get an erection. GAINSWave® works by using high-frequency low-intensity shock waves to increase blood flow to the penis. 

Acoustic wave therapy is applied to the penis and removes any micro plaque that might have built up, increasing blood flow and encouraging new blood vessels to form. The result is harder, more sustainable erections.

How Long Do GAINSWave® Benefits Last?

How long the benefits last will depend on the individual. Some men experience enhanced sensitivity and improved sexual performance for up to 3 years. Most men need between six to twelve sessions to experience the benefits.

Side Effects of GAINSWave® Treatment

While GAINSWave® is considered generally safe with minimal risk, the side effects can include mild bruising, temporary numbness, or a tingling sensation in the area. More severe complications (while rare) can include damage or infection to the penile tissue.

What is P-Shot Treatment for ED?

It’s common for men as they age to experience Erectile Dysfunction as a result of restricted blood vessels and aging tissue, which can reduce blood flow to the penis. This is where P-Shot penile injections can help. Their key ingredient is Platelet Rich Plasma, which works by recruiting naturally occurring growth factors and proteins from within your own blood.

When PRP is injected into the penis, it encourages proteins to nourish blood flow to that area, triggering specific therapeutic properties to increase penile blood flow and promote the formation of healthier penile tissue. The result is enhanced sensitivity, stronger erections, and improved overall sexual performance.

Mask group (18)

How Long Do GAINSWave® Benefits Last?

While the exact timeframe will vary from person to person, many men experience the benefits of P-Shot injections for several months to a year. Additionally, it’s common for men to begin noticing the results from treatment within a few weeks after the first injection. The timing and number of injections you need will vary based on your overall health and additional factors affecting your sexual function.

Side Effects of P-Shot Treatment

While side effects can vary from person to person, they tend to be minimal (since PRP is taken from your own blood). Side effects, while rare, can include bruising, swelling at the injection site, and bleeding.

What is Testosterone Replacement Treatment for ED?

Testosterone replacement treatment uses testosterone cypionate to treat men who are experiencing erectile dysfunction as a result of low testosterone levels. While there are several medications available for treating low T, testosterone cypionate is known for being very effective and well-tolerated by many individuals. It’s also known as Duratest, Depo-Testosterone, and Testoject LA.

How Long Do Testosterone Replacement Treatment Benefits Last?

Similar to other ED treatments, testosterone replacement treatment typically requires several sessions over the course of several weeks or months. Many men begin to notice an improvement in ED symptoms after several weeks of treatment. The exact timeframe will vary from person to person.

Side Effects of Testosterone Replacement Treatment

The side effects of testosterone replacement treatment can range from soreness at the injection site, night sweats, oily skin, and acne. Long-term side effects can include high blood pressure and cholesterol.

What is Trimix Treatment for ED?

Trimix is a self-administered medication that increases blood flow to the penis, enabling an erection. It is known for working quickly, and the effects can last for 1 hour. Trimix consists of Papaverine, Phentolamine, and Prostaglandin E 1. Each of these medications works in slightly different ways to help address ED in men.

image 47 (2)

How Long Do Trimix Treatment Benefits Last?

The effects of Trimix typically last for 1 hour.

Side Effects of Trimix Treatment

Side effects of Trimix tend to be minimal. If side effects do occur, they can include headaches, dizziness, penile pain, injection site bruising, and prolonged erection. If you experience an erection that lasts longer than 3 hours, it’s recommended you seek medical attention.

Mask Group (19)

What is Cialis/Viagra Treatment For ED?

Cialis and Viagra are two types of ED drugs available in pill form as oral medications and work by relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to the penis, enabling an erection when combined with stimulation. Cialis contains the active ingredient tadalafil and Viagra contains the active ingredient sildenafil. 

The exact medication prescribed will depend on your specific needs determined by a medical professional. 

Cialis can be taken on-demand (as needed) or daily and Viagra is taken on-demand before beginning sexual activity.

How Long Do Cialis and Viagra Treatment Benefits Last?

Cialis typically lasts for up to 36 hours and Viagra typically lasts for 4 to 5 hours.

Side Effects of Cialis and Viagra Treatment

Side effects can include headaches, flushing, indigestion, low blood pressure, and nasal congestion.

What To Expect

During Your ED Treatment Appointment

Doctors treat erectile dysfunction by conducting a thorough medical evaluation and asking questions about the symptoms you have been experiencing. If you’re determined to be a candidate for treatment, your ED Specialist will discuss your specific treatment options with you and administer treatment.

After Your ED Treatment Appointment

Most ED treatments are outpatient procedures with little to no downtime. In many cases, you’ll be able to drive after the session and return to work or your normal activity.

Additional sessions could be needed over the course of several weeks and months to experience the full benefit of treatment, depending on which specific treatment was administered. The exact number of treatments needed will vary from person to person.

What is HGH Therapy and who’s a candidate?

What is HGH Therapy and who’s a candidate?

Get Started Now

FullName(Required)

HGH is an important type of growth hormone your body needs to function. It plays an important role in metabolism regulation and helps men maintain their stamina, energy levels, muscle mass, cognitive function, and many other factors. When your natural human growth hormone levels decrease, you might start to experience symptoms that negatively impact your quality of life. These can include fatigue, low sex drive, anxiety, depression, and weight gain with increased body fat.

As men age, it’s common for HGH levels to decrease, leading to a growth hormone deficiency and resulting in the above-mentioned issues. But luckily, HGH therapy can help to increase these hormone levels naturally so that you can feel like your best self.

image 46

What is HGH Therapy?

HGH therapy, also known as growth hormone therapy, increases the level of the natural human growth hormone within the body from the pituitary gland. There are two types of human growth hormones, a Synthetic human growth hormone and HGH Peptides.

Synthetic HGH is known for causing a wide variety of uncomfortable side effects. HGH Peptides is a better treatment option for men who want to improve their appearance and sex drive. Peptides signal to your body to jumpstart its own products of HGH, making it an effective form of treatment with minimal side effects.

Who is a Candidate for HGH Therapy?

HGH Therapy is good for men who have low levels of HGH, otherwise known as HGH deficiency. Specifically, men who experience anxiety and depression, lethargy, a low sex drive, and weight gain (including around the waist), are the ideal candidate for this type of treatment.

Additionally, men who want to build lean body mass and strong bones, burn fat more easily, and feel more energy could benefit from HGH treatment.

side-view-shot-fit-young-athletic-man-jumping-running 1

How Does HGH Therapy Work?

HGH therapy kickstarts the body’s natural development of human growth hormone, increasing the likelihood of your body producing more of HGH. When taken in pill form or injected, the HGH peptides signal to your body it’s time to produce higher levels of the human growth hormone. The exact dosage of this treatment will vary from person to person based on each individual’s health history and needs.

smiling-athlete-with-earphones-holding-thumbs-up-ready-training 1

What are the Benefits Of HGH Therapy?

Human growth hormone benefits for men include:

  • Improved libido and performance
  • Increased muscle mass
  • Weight loss, including targeting the abdominal area
  • Improved mood
  • Healthier looking skin
  • Maintained bone density
  • Improved overall sense of wellness
  • Better memory

How Is HGH Therapy Administered?

HGH therapy can be administered in two ways depending on which specific peptide is applied to your treatment:

Ibutamoren (MK-677) – Ibutamoren is a more natural treatment method for addressing the wellness and anti-aging aspects of growth hormone deficiencies. Also known as Growth Hormone Secretagogues (GHSs), it encourages the natural release of HGH by signaling to your body to jumpstart its own production of HGH. GHSs has been demonstrated to significantly increase pituitary growth hormone production and elevate HGH levels throughout the body. It is commonly administered in pill form.

Sermorelin – Similar to Ibutamoren, Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP) that signals the body to jumpstart its natural production of HGH. Sermorelin has been used for decades in wellness settings to help men fight fatigue and trim stubborn belly fat. Sermorelin is typically administered as an injection.

Is HGH Therapy Safe?

Human growth hormone treatment is believed to be safe and effective when used under proper medical supervision. When administered by medical professionals, you’ll receive a thorough evaluation that helps create a treatment plan that is the best fit for your needs.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects?

Side effects of HGH therapy can include joint and muscle pain, fluid retention, and swelling. In rare cases, some individuals could experience Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular issues, and increased risk of specific cancers.

What To Expect with HGH Therapy Treatment

There is no downtime after taking your HGH, so you can return to work or your normal activity.

Semaglutide Beginner’s Guide

What is Semaglutide:
A Complete Beginner’s Guide

Is your weight holding you back?

Are you ready to reach your ideal body weight? If you’re someone who has excess weight and has tried following a healthy diet along with regular exercise, Semaglutide is a drug for helping people lose weight.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is used to help both men and women lose unwanted pounds and reach a healthy weight. It was previously used to help individuals with diabetes, but it’s now known for being an extremely effective drug for people who want to experience significant weight loss in a safe manner.

Semaglutide is administered as a subcutaneous injection on a weekly basis for up to 16 weeks. Periodic treatment can be administered as needed following this time period. The exact amount of dosage will vary from person to person based on each individual’s health, weight, and specific weight loss goals. The dosage is slowly increased over time, with most individuals noticing a change in weight between 4 to 6 weeks after beginning the injections.

When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, it can help you achieve maximum results.

Semaglutide can be prescribed to both men and women, specifically those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. It can also be prescribed to those with a BMI of 27 or higher and high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or other health conditions that can make losing weight very difficult.

Name(Required)

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide is GLP-1 (glucagon-like-peptide-1), a receptor agonist, which means that it mimics the hormone GLP-1 known for regulating hunger (and therefore food intake). When Semaglutide is injected weekly, the hormone is suppressed and gastric emptying is delayed. This results in you feeling much more full and satisfied after eating a meal.

One study of 1,961 people found that in people with a BMI over 30 and who did not have diabetes, Semaglutide injections combined with exercise resulted in a mean decrease in body weight of 14.9% over 68 weeks. The placebo group saw only a 2.4% mean decrease in weight.

A second study found that when Semaglutide is combined with a low-calorie diet and behavioral therapy, it results in an even more significant amount of weight loss. Overall, many studies have shown that Semaglutide is most effective when it’s combined with a healthy diet and consistent exercise. At Gameday Men’s Health, your Semaglutide specialist will thoroughly review your medical history, perform a physical health analysis, evaluate your BMI, and answer any questions you might have regarding treatment.

What are the Benefits of Semaglutide?

Semaglutide injections are known for offering numerous benefits, including:

  • Significantly reducing weight, especially when combined with following a healthy diet and exercising regularly
  • Providing consistent, safe weight loss over an extended period of time
  • Diminishing risk of heart and cardiovascular disease upon achieving a healthy weight
  • Helping you to look and feel healthier
  • Requiring only one injection per week

What are the Risks of Semaglutide?

There are several potential side effects associated with Semaglutide. These include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, bloating, high blood pressure, changes in mood, and blurred vision.

Severe side effects are rare but can include allergic reactions, kidney damage, pancreatitis, gallstones, and others.

Your medical specialist at Gameday Men’s Health will thoroughly discuss any risk of potential side effects with you and answer any questions you might have regarding the injections.

Semaglutide Key Takeaways

Client Testimonials

Need some proof? See how our services have made a difference in our clients’ lives.

Gameday has greatly improved my life and I highly recommend everybody to go give them a visit. They’re professional and, more importantly, attentive to what I was saying. I was so relieved after meeting with the Gameday team – the search for a treatment was finally over and things can only move up from here! My girlfriend was also glad that Gameday was able to provide a treatment that not only was effective, but also reassuring knowing that each visit was getting me back to my normal self. I’m not longer lethargic throughout the day and I’ve even been told that I was glowing haha!

– Nick W. , Carlsbad

Things in my life weren’t getting much worse in the past year. I was tired but I felt like who wasn’t? I gained weight but I also worked a sedentary job. What really got me was that when I was out with my friends and an attractive person passed me, I had no reaction. That was a wake up call for me. My friend actually got treatment at Gameday and highly recommended reaching out. Best decision ever. The staff had such an expertise and were straightforward about what was possible and what should be expected. Within 3 months, I feel overall more alive and I gained more confidence. 10/10 awesome experience.

— Andrew K. , San Diego

If you ask anybody from my inner circle, they would all say that I’m athletic, handsome, and energetic. I didn’t feel like any of those a little after turning 43. I gained a little over 15 pounds, lost patches of hair over my body, and couldn’t get good sleep so I was always tired. I did some research and they were all symptoms of low testosterone. I spoke to my wife and she mentioned that her brother-in-law went through the same thing and went through a TRT protocol with GameDay. I did the same and couldn’t be happier. The icing on the cake is the fact that Gameday worked with my insurance plan!

— Daniel A. , Carlsbad

Words you never want to hear when having sex: “Is everything okay?” My wife noticed the lackluster sex and I’m glad she said something because if not I would have never found out about Gameday and their treatment for low testosterone levels. After just a couple of months, TRT is rocking my life and rejuvenated my sex life. My wife and I are forever thankful that Gameday was able to help me with their dedicated support and expert knowledge. We spoke to a few other clinics and we didn’t feel comfortable with the way they were just trying to push us towards a payment.

— Mike R. , Carlsbad
