You are what you eat…
You’ve heard the saying before…
And it’s true.
Especially if you’re a guy…
Because for men, what you eat can be the difference between you looking and feeling like an anabolic action hero, or a catabolic cream puff.
Between you taking a hold of your life or merely watching life pass you by.
The difference between being looked up to or just being looked through.
Men, what you eat matters.
Which is why I wrote The Man Diet, which I’m offering you free here.
I’m tired of watching guys hand over the keys to their testosterone, the very thing that makes them men, simply because they don’t know what to eat, when to eat and why it matters.
I’ve been there.
And I got tired of it…
And decided to change the way I eat.
Maybe you’re tired of it, too.
So today I want to help you eat like a man by giving you a taste of The Man Diet.
Here are 3 foundational tips to eat to boost your testosterone.
Eat More Fat
I know it probably goes against everything your wife has told you…
Which makes sense, doesn’t it?
But if you’re going to eat to boost your testosterone, you need to get a lot of fat into your diet.
Because studies have shown a direct correlation between the amount of fat men eat and the amount of testosterone we have.
See, testosterone is a lipid-based hormone, meaning that dietary fats need to be present in your body if you’re going to have testosterone flowing through your veins.
But not all fats are created equal.
When you eat to boost your testosterone you need to eat plenty of saturated fats and monounsaturated fats (check out the list at the bottom of this section).
And you need to do your best to stay away from polyunsaturated fats.
According to this study, when saturated fats and monounsaturated fats are increased in any given diet, testosterone goes up…
But once the polyunsaturated fats are introduced, testosterone plummets.
So let me start you off with an easy list.
Eat: whole cage-free eggs, organic bacon, organic beef, grass-fed butter, blue cheese, avocado, olive oil, and brazil nuts.
Don’t Eat: flax seed, soybeans, vegetable oil, walnuts, peanuts
Carb cutting diets are all the rave right now…
But here’s the deal…
Low carb diets may make you a little skinnier (scrawnier may be a better word), but they’ll also kill your testosterone levels…
Which will ruin your ability to build muscle, grow a beard that’s worth anyone’s time, and please your wife in bed, among many other benefits that come along with having testosterone.
This study shows that when carbohydrate intake was dropped by 30%, testosterone dropped with it.
Also, low carbohydrate diets increase your body’s cortisol levels (an enemy of testosterone) because your body needs carbohydrates to recover from a workout or any extended amounts of physical stress in general.
But just like fats, all carbohydrates aren’t created equal.
When you eat to boost your testosterone you want to fill your plate with plenty of gluten-free carbohydrates.
Gluten-free diets have been shown to increase testosterone.
And like you’d expect, that doesn’t include donuts, unless there’s a wizard out there that makes a gluten free donut that’s worth anyone’s time.
Again, I’ll make it easy for you to get started.
Eat: any kind of potato (sweet, russet, Idaho, etc.), raisins, wolfberries, blueberries, any and all green vegetables.
Don’t Eat: bread, donuts, cupcakes, Snicker’s bars, pixie sticks…
Well, you get it.
