x-no-archive:yes

I am 34, male and 179 lbs. My bodyfat fluctualtes on my scale depending
on time of day between 16-18%. Diabetes runs in my family. (I dont have
it). I have low normal testosterone and take androgel once a day.

My diet is this: Mon-Fri: (Doing this for about two years)

Breakfast: low carb breakfast bar. One sausage. One bananna. One diet
coke. One bottle of water

snack: Turkey jerky or peanuts or blueberries

Lunch: Turkey. I small can of peas. One type of fruit like an apple or
grapes or strawberries.Diet coke

Snack: Turkey Jerky or beanuts or blueberries

Dinner: I spurge and eat whatever my wife fixes as well as snacks.

Weekends:

I spluge and eat whatever my wife fixes. (Within reason.)

I lift wieghts lightly before work Mon-Fri. about 20 minutes. Bench
press, tricep pull downs, shoulder shruggs, incline bench press, lat
pull downs. This is by myself and as I said lightly.

I try to run 3-4 days a week 2.4 miles. It takes me between 20-23
minutes.

I would like to get my bodyfat percentage lower. All my fat is in my
gut and I hate it. I would like to be able to see my stomach muscles.
But my main worry is longevity. Am I eating too much fat? Will this
clog my arteries? I have been trying to eat lower car (not Atkins)
because of the family history of diabetes but am I doing so at the
sacrifice of heart health? (Another family problem. My dad had bypass
at 53 and my uncle in his 40's.) My dad is obese.

Also, will eating a diet such as this cause or contribute to um sexual
problems?\

Thanks for your advice!

Diabetes and heart disease are part of the same metabolic syndrome.
What's good for one is good for the other. Concentrate on carbs from
high fiber, colorful veggies, and ditch the bananas and peas. Eat more
leafy stuff instead. Get fats from tree nuts, olives, fish, avocados,
and eat more protein.

Fat doesn't cause CVD, high glycemic load will, however.
