I am 60 years old and switched to a new physician in February '14. When he came into the exam room to speak to me for the first time, looking over my file, he said 'How long have you been obese?' This floored me and after that visit I resolved to solve my problem. Now, 50 pounds lighter and running 10 miles per week, I have leaned out significantly. As I lost weight, I noticed that my equipment seemed to be getting, shall we say, more prominent? The loss of fat was accentuating it, but more importantly, I started getting something I had literally forgotten was a male-exclusive phenomena. Now, almost like an alarm clock, it wakes me at 5:30 AM almost every morning and is raging. Yes, NPT is happening again.
My understanding, and I seek confirmation, is that this is 1) the bodies way of exercising a mans hydraulics and 2) an indicator of T-levels, which apparently peak in the morning. They say 60 is the new 50, but I am starting to think 60 is the new 20.
