We’re facing an epidemic.
Men, that is. It’s an epidemic that leaves us impotent, unable to build muscle or burn fat, lethargic, and depressed.
It’s a virus that’s spreading fast. One that was once thought to only attack us as we age is now being seen in men under 20 years of age!
The epidemic I’m speaking of is low testosterone, and we’re seeing it not just in men over the age of 25 (who are experiencing a decrease of between 1.2 and 1.3% annually), but in men much younger than that.
Researchers out of Massachusetts found that the average man’s testosterone levels have dropped by 1.2–1.3% annually over the last 20 years with 1 in 4 men experiencing lower than average T levels.
That means that a 30 year old man in 1986 had significantly higher testosterone levels than a 30 year old man in 1996, and ’96 had higher levels than 2006 and so on…
With each decade we’re producing less testosterone. It’s as if men are becoming less manly. And as we see this fall of man, this emasculation, we’re seeing increased obesity, heart disease, depression, and a host of other ailments rise in relation to it.
There is a silver lining, though…
Many of these thousands have doubled and tripled their testosterone levels in only a few weeks.
What you have to understand is that it’s not your genetics that are holding back from getting ripped, jacked, energetic, happy, and successful, it’s your hormones.
And when you fix this underlying cause with the simple tactics I’m going to show you in this article, you free your body to perform as it was always meant to.
THIS DECLINE IS NOT YOUR FAULT, BUT IT IS UNDER YOUR CONTROL…
Standing atop a mountain in Maui, staring down the slide that the fine gentleman who owned the property had constructed, I determined that no matter how fast I went I wouldn’t slow down.
Wanting to test not only my own limits and fears, but also how well this slide was constructed, I took a running start, launched on to me arse, perched my hips in the air so only my upper back and heels were touching the bottom of the slide, and sped off with a smile on my face…
A few seconds later, after some dicey turns and some close calls, I was skidding face first on the lava rock that surrounded the pool at the base of the slide.
My belly looked like a peeled raspberry.
I was bleeding profusely, yet no amount of pain or blood could wipe the smile off my face.
It’s this trip to Maui, and this “accident” on the insanely poorly constructed slide, that first showed me the true power of optimal testosterone levels.
Only a few months earlier I’d found out that I had low T levels when I went to the doctor and demanded a blood test. I’d been doing some reading into how low T levels show themselves…
I was walking around in a daze, half the man I was, and this gradual decline was reaching critical mass. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, so I demanded the test.
The doctor thought it was a waste of time to give me a blood test because I was only 24 years old, but I insisted.
And, sure enough, though I was fit and young, I had low T levels for my age.
Needless to say, as a guy, I freaked. But when the doctor came to me with his solution (testosterone replacement therapy), I said I’d handle it.
What I did know was that TRT is basically glorified steroids. They’re injections that replace your body’s natural ability to produce testosterone.
After a few months on TRT you can no longer produce testosterone optimally. You become dependent on the expensive injections that puff the pockets of your doctor.
It was this test that set me on a 6-year quest to figure out how to naturally increase my testosterone levels, not just to “acceptable levels” but to the highest levels a human male could possibly naturally create.
… And it was this trip, only a few months after that test, that made me realize I was on to something.
I went back to the hotel, blood still dripping from my chest, poured some rubbing alcohol on it and continued with the day.
Now, right after I got that test back from the doc I started doing a few things:
I created a “testosterone” shake that consisted of 3 raw eggs, whole raw milk, and a few secret ingredients that I’ll share with you later. I took that thing 3–5 times a week.
I created a “testosterone-boosting” morning routine based on the research I’d done. It was designed to boost “free T”, which is the form of testosterone that’s NOT bound to a protein, allowing it to travel throughout the body and repair tissue.
Much of my research had taught me about the power of dietary fats and how it’s fats from animals, nuts, fish, and fruits that are the building blocks for testosterone.
This kinda pissed me off because up until then all I’d read about in the muscle and fitness mags was low fat this, high protein and carbs that…
The diet I’d been using was actually filled with things that lowered my testosterone levels!But I digress…
I made those 3 changes and a few others.
Bloody chest and all, I took my testosterone shake and went to bed.
The next day I awoke to a scabbed front.
The day after that the scabs were almost completely gone, and by day 3 my whole chest was healed, albeit with some light scarring.
It didn’t take me long to connect the dots.
You see, testosterone is a tissue-repairing hormone.
That’s why it helps you build muscle and recover far more quickly than you can without optimal testosterone levels.
So, through my testosterone cocktail, my before bed and upon rising routine, and through the dramatic changes in my diet that I made, I’d transformed myself into a poor man’s Wolverine.A few other things I noticed…
My girlfriend was far friskier on account of the pheromones that you release when you’re producing optimal testosterone levels…
And the best part, so was I. I was waking up with the soldier standing at attention, my body composition was changing DRAMATICALLY…
… I was losing fat and building muscle and getting much stronger.
I had a lot more energy than normal. I was able to work longer hours, and have more fun…
And my ambition was back in full effect.
Here’s the reality that I was hit with…
MOST DIETS AREN’T MADE FOR MEN!
Women make up over 80% of the market, and the diets that focus on helping women lean out, don’t give us the building blocks for testosterone that we need.
A simple example is zinc…
Men need zinc to block aromatase, which is a precursor to estrogen. Women DO NOT want to take zinc, unless they want a hint of a moustache to appear on their upper lip.
