If you’re a guy over the age of 40, chances are you are experiencing some changes to your body, and in the bedroom, that you find… well, frankly disturbing.
You’re tired. You look flabby (hello man boobs) and you can’t get it up like you used to. Why is this happening? You eat right and try to take care of yourself, and yet your body and sex life seem to be going down the toilet.
Well, once you cross that milestone birthday and hit the big 4-0, your body starts making less and less testosterone. Testosterone is an important sex hormone that is responsible for helping men manage their weight, have energy, build muscle and have a great sex drive with the ability to achieve rock hard erections.
So, it goes without saying that when your T-levels drop, you easily gain fat but lose muscle, have no energy, and can’t perform in the bedroom like you used to.
Luckily, there are strategies men can use to increase their T-levels naturally and one of the most effective strategies is Intermittent fasting (IF).
What is Intermittent Fasting Exactly?
Intermittent fasting is an eating protocol where a person has a small eating window followed by a period of no eating. Some people do a 16/8 protocol where they fast for 16 hours and then have an 8-hour window in which they usually eat 2 meals. Other people eat only 1 meal a day, so they would fast for 23 hours and eat within a 1-hour window.
Intermittent fasting has proven effective at helping people lose weight and reverse many metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes. But it has also proven to be very effective at helping men increase their testosterone levels.
In fact, one study found that IF helped non-obese men increase their overall testosterone levels by 180%. And these results came just after a single short-term fast. Imagine doing regular IF.
IF Helps You Burn More Body Fat
Being overweight can bring down a man’s T-levels even more. One of the quickest ways to raise your levels is to lose excess body fat. And one of the most effective ways to do that is through intermittent fasting. When you fast, your body looks for fuel to power itself through the day. Once your body burns through the stored glycogen in your liver and muscles it will head to the stored fat on your body. The more fat you lose, the more able your body will be to produce more testosterone – it’s that simple.
Fasting and Human Growth Hormone
Within a small 24 hour fast, you can actually elevate your HGH levels by an amazing 2000%! What you may not know is that HGH and T-levels correlate with one another, both acting to improve glycogen uptake into the muscles, protein synthesis, and increasing training capacity and tolerance.
I want to end this article by saying that you don’t have to be super strict with intermittent fasting to see positive results in your body, energy levels and erections. Just by skipping breakfast, you can see these amazing results. So if you normally eat breakfast around 7AM, skip it and eat lunch at noon and then dinner at 6pm or 7pm. You’ll end up not eating from 7PM to 12PM the next day, which is a relatively simple 17 hour fast.
You’ll probably also experience what a lot of men do, which is that once they start fasting, they find they wake up each morning with far more powerful erections.
So, if you are a guy that is 40 and older and you want to know how you can get your body and sex life back in shape, I highly recommend you give intermittent fasting a try.
