Nutrition : 5 Foods That Power Up Testosterone

Testosterone is what makes a man, a man. Increasing it builds muscle, burns belly fat and takes a lagging libido from afternoon delight, to breakfast in bed. However, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism recently discovered that men who were born more recently have consistently lower testosterone levels – lower than our beard-bearing fathers, even lower than our wood-chopping Granddads.

In fact, today’s man’s testosterone levels are at their lowest level in recorded history.

Even more startling, iron-clad research now proves that for every extra ounce of body fat men have, more testosterone becomes locked up and completely unusable. It’s a never ending downward spiral that becomes nearly impossible to break. Your belly just keeps getting bigger and bigger, while more and more testosterone becomes unavailable.

That’s why scientists now know that waist circumference is the #1 predictor of low testosterone in men.

It should be no coincidence that body fat levels in men have been on a steep, dangerous rise, along with millions of prescriptions written to eradicate sexual performance problems.

So to quickly recap, modern men are not only producing less testosterone, our bodies are also locking down almost 95% of the testosterone we have. It’s a lose-lose situation.

On the bright side, making a few changes to your nutrition can assist you with your testosterone troubles.

The Journal of Applied Physiology recently reported that guys consuming a diet containing 40% fat can help your body start producing 15-20% More Testosterone!

5 Foods you MUST eat to skyrocket testosterone production quickly, safely, and naturally. 

1. Red Meat

Beef is definitely your number one protein choice when it comes to building lean muscle and boosting testosterone! This is no wimpy chicken breast; beef has a high content of muscle building creatine and BCAAs, more than any other food. Beef is also packed with carnitine – which assists in fat metabolism, and is a source of the anti-catabolic agent CLA. Beef contains iron, which drives oxygen delivery to muscles; zinc and magnesium, which are needed to ignite protein synthesis, jack-up testosterone production and stimulate muscle growth.

2. Whole Eggs

Whole eggs are full of the good fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. But the important part here – they also have cholesterol, which in this case is a good thing for increasing testosterone. Here’s why: saturated fats contain cholesterol, and cholesterol is what your body uses to make testosterone. The key to this secret is eating the right amount on a daily basis. Too little and your testosterone levels drop to down to girly amounts. But too much and you begin risking your health.

3. Tuna

Although it may not be the best tasting protein source, the Vitamin D content goes without question. A 3 oz can contains 50% of your RDA of Vitamin D and not only that, a can of tuna can boost testosterone. A study at Graz Medical University, Austria – found it slashed levels of libido-killing chemical Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG).

4. Avocado

This powerhouse fruit contains the building blocks for testosterone – Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, omega-3′s, potassium, folic acid, and cholesterol. Although dense in calories, the avocado contains mostly good fats – monounsaturated and is a good source of glutathione – a powerful antioxidant that helps to speed the recovery process. This fruit makes the perfect addition to any meal and can also be mixed with your favorite protein supplement for a mouth watering pudding!

5. Cruciferous Vegetables

Green vegetables may not be at the top of your food list, but they should be! Dark green, cruciferous vegetables can help you hold onto more testosterone because they contain a compound called indole-3-carbinol (DIM or 3,3-Diindolymethane) that metabolizes and removes excess estrogen from your body – so you build Chiselled Pecs, NOT Chubby Lumps. Choose from broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, collard greens, kale, and brussels sprouts.

Now Here’s How to More Than DOUBLE Your #1 Master Male Hormone

Now, while 15-20% more testosterone would make noticeable changes to your appearance and libido… what if there was a research proven trick to increase your free testosterone levels by 434%, so you can build muscle and burn fat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without having to eat expensive, specific, hard to find foods, in exact measured amounts?

And what if it only takes a measly 30 short seconds a day to implement?

Is that something you might be interested in?

      Except vegan men (actually vegans in general) are in poorer overall health and suffer from several deficiencies unless they take supplements or eat “fortified” products. For example, B12 – essential for proper brain and nervous system function – is ONLY found in animal products. Another common deficiency is DHA (another vital brain food). The body synthesizes it from Omega 3 fatty acids. While there are certain plants and nuts that contain O3FAs, plant based O3s are converted very inefficiently leading to DHA deficiency. Thats probably the most damning evidence that humans are not supposed to exist solely on plants and magic crystals.

        humans lived for hundreds of thousands of years consuming b12 from fresh, organic soil. b12 ONLY comes from bacteria, so your argument is invalid. farmers actually have to supplement animals with b12 for their products to have any in them.
        excessive omega 6 inhibits omega 3 absorption; the conversion is not inefficient, and there are plenty of vegan sources of omega 3. you are consuming a lot of propaganda

          HAHAHAHA! It must be so nice to go through life with such glorious ignorance. Your bliss level must be awesome. B12 does NOT come from “rich organic soil”. It comes from the bacteria in living creatures. Humans survived for hundreds of thousands of years consuming B12 from MEAT. There were no pussy vegans back then. Farmers don’t have to feed it to animals, manufacturers have to put into tofu for the pussy vegans. Your spewing of nonsense is really making your stupid shine bright.

      You are right Wicked Garden.

      Meat products are not essential for most large mammals, and humans have a very long, curved digestive system which makes digesting dead corpses very dangerous, resulting in short lifespans of no more than 100 years. There is a misconception that we cannot get big and strong from eating plants (like giraffe and elephant) but this is actually a dangerous reversal of the truth; the effects of eating animals too similar to our own genome causes repetitive encoding errors, up to the point of cannibalism which results in nervous system and immune system damage. Flesh is also inferior in energy to the carbohydrates that occur in vegetables, fungi, and fruits.

      Bacteria and fungus (such as mushrooms) provided nearly every essential nutrient and can be acquired by eating dirt.
      People love to romanticize their ancestors. Its more likely that your ancestors ate a variety of insects out of the soil than hunted quick four-legged animals. Insects have slightly more vitamins than meat and no cholesterol. Several insect poisons (of which there are very few) can be broken down by human stomach acid.

      The cuts of meat in the pictures above are not the most nutritious. You actually will not get all of your vitamins from meat unless you eat organ tissue such as brain, heart, and liver, which most overfed malnourished Americans do NOT do.

      There are several types of nuts that boost testosterone, and walnuts boost estrogen. So it really depends on what you want to do. Although I happen to, not everyone wants to look like a muscular beefcake.
