The Man Diet: A Diet For Men That Doesn’t Suck

Fad diets come and go…

Don’t eat fat…

Don’t eat carbs…

Load up on protein…

Blah, blah, blah.

You’ve heard it all before.

But did you know that these fad diets are actually dangerous for you as a man?

In reality, these are feminine diets that are masked as the next big thing for men…

And they’re doing what you would expect feminine diets to do…

They’re killing your testosterone levels.

But did you know that there’s a diet for men that’s been around for thousands of years?

One that’s proven to boost your testosterone levels and bring masculinity back into your meals?

A diet for men that doesn’t suck?

Well, there is…

And after years of research, I packed it all into a simple book I titled The Man Diet which you can grab for free here.

It’s the formula for how men were meant to eat – when men were sole providers and protectors from outside man and beast, hunters and gatherers for family and community.

And there are two main phases to it.

So let’s take a short look at the diet for men that doesn’t suck so that you can start eating how you were meant to eat.

Intermittent Fasting

How many times have you been told, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?”

Even worse, how many times have you prescribed a big breakfast to one of your buddies who said he “needs to start eating better?”

Here’s the deal…

By eating breakfast once you wake up, you’re leaving a bunch of testosterone out on the table.

Which is why one major aspect of my free book, The Man Diet, is intermittent fasting.

If you’re unfamiliar with intermittent fasting, the concept is simple; your goal is to abstain from eating 16 hours a day, while leaving yourself an 8-hour window to eat big.

 

And here are some studies to show why:

According to one study conducted with men who participated in a short, 16-hour fast, luteinizing hormone (a precursor to testosterone production) was shown to have increased by 67% and testosterone itself increased by 180%.

Also, studies have shown that after spending at least 12 hours in a fasted state, your body begins to burn fat for fuel, making intermittent fasting one of the easiest and most effective practices to shed unwanted body fat…

It’s important to keep in mind also that the lower your body fat percentage is, the higher your testosterone levels will be – making intermittent fasting a double-edged sword you can wield against both fat and femininity in one slice.

And if you’re feeling really ambitious, a well planned out 24-hour fast can cause your growth hormone production to increase by 2,000%.

The facts are clear…

Eating like a man starts with intermittent fasting.

So what does intermittent fasting look like for you on a daily basis?

Here’s what I recommend…

Your fast begins the moment you finish eating your last meal of the day.

So for instance, if you eat your last meal on Monday night at 8pm, your 16-hour window will allow you to start eating at noon on Tuesday.

Then, you can eat big from noon to 8pm…

And repeat that cycle over again.

One of the plus sides of intermittent fasting this way is that you should be spending at least half of your IF period sleeping.

When you do wake, during the time that you’re fasting (and throughout the rest of the day, really), drink plenty of water to keep your stomach full…

I also recommend having a cup of coffee or two to help boost testosterone and suppress your appetite to make that 16-hour fast feel shorter…

Also, try to stay busy while you’re fasting…

I think you’ll be surprised at how much more clearly your mind functions when you’re on your fast.

So to sum up, intermittent fasting is a crucial element of any true diet for men because it burns fat, boosts testosterone, and optimizes anabolic hormone.

I go into plenty of more detail in my free book, which you can grab here.

And this leads me into the next major component of The Man Diet.

Eat Big

You know, back in the day when our ancestors were stalking wild prey and gathering fruits and vegetables, they weren’t only feeding themselves, but their entire village, too…

And when they brought home a meal that would last for the next week or so, they weren’t concerned about how much fat, carbs, and protein they were eating…

They just ate…

Like men.

Now, don’t get me wrong, in my book, The Man Diet, I go into plenty of detail on how you should eat in order to optimize your testosterone levels, and yes, that does include what kind and how much fat, protein, and carbs your should be eating in a 24-hour period…

But the main premise is this: When you’re in your 8-hour window of eating, eat big.

Think about it…

With the intermittent fasting protocol, you have 8-hours to pack in thousands of calories (depending on your body type and your personal goals).

Your body has gone through a process of fat burning and increasing testosterone while you’ve been fasting, and now it’s time to eat plenty of foods that’ll keep your testosterone in good shape and will cause you to produce even more testosterone while you sleep.

In my book, The Man Diet, I suggest that you get about 35% of your daily calories from dietary fats and I go into detail on what the best tasting, testosterone-boosting fats are.

Also, despite what the “experts” are saying these days, a true diet for men consists of plenty of carbohydrates.

Your body needs carbohydrates in order for your body to optimally produce testosterone levels.

And despite what you’ve probably been told, protein is the last macronutrient you have to worry about when it comes to your testosterone health.

You don’t have to pound 200 grams of protein on The Man Diet, because well, studies have shown that too much protein can decrease testosterone levels.

So in your 8-hour window you’ll eat big fats, big carbs and moderate protein.

But the premise is all the same: you’ll eat big…

Which is how any diet for men should be.

Your Next Step

The two phases of a diet for men that doesn’t suck are simple: Intermittent fasting and eating big.

And in today’s day and age, those concepts are relatively unheard of (even though they’ve been around for thousands of years).

So what’s your next step?

Well, throughout this article I’ve unashamedly encouraged you to check out my free book, The Man Diet… 

And the reason is because I know that if you follow the science-backed tips and techniques I’ve laid out for you, your testosterone levels will thrive…
