Part of the terrifying Betaization Syndrome is caused by a reduction in testosterone, so fairly logically a method of combating it is to take steps to increase your testosterone level. Here’s a few easy and simple methods to do that.
Eat Better – Having a balanced diet with fruits and vegetables has a positive affect on testosterone production. Plus the proteins in eggs and whey allow the adrenal glands to keep testosterone levels even.
Decrease Body Fat – Fat contains an enzyme that actually converts testosterone to estrogen. Obviously men do need some amount of estrogen, but getting obese is going to cause a shift in the balance of power from testosterone to estrogen. Perhaps you’d like a purse to go with your spare tire.
Eat Meat – Don’t go vegetarian, that’s really for chicks. Meat helps increase testosterone levels. Also nuts can increase it as well. Have some peanut butter. Though there is also evidence that going to a high-protein low carb diet will actually hurt testosterone production. Balanced diet, hear me? Balanced diet.
Lift Weights – You knew we were coming here, and here we are. Do exercise and lift weights. Don’t work yourself into complete exhaustion and over train, just keep up a steady level of exercise and your testosterone levels will increase, though weight training is particularly good for testosterone levels.
Limit Alcohol Intake – While your body is working over time to get the alcohol out of your system, it isn’t working to create testosterone. Overall this is a basic good health idea anyway. And again I’m just saying limit intake, you didn’t hear me say you had to join AA or the Salvation Army here. Three drinks basically shuts production off completely until the alcohol is cleared.
Sleep Better – Well duh. Everything goes better with sleep.
Get Sexually Turned On – Get hard my friends. Being turned on and physically erect leads to increases in overall testosterone levels. No reason why a little porn can’t be helpful. (I generally advise cumming inside your wife as much as possible though, it actually delivers testosterone to her that gets absorbed through the vaginal walls and makes her sex drive increase!)
Omega-3 Fatty Acids – Seriously try this. It’s costs like $6 for a three month supply from any supermarket. What do you have to lose?
Engage in Competition – do something competitive once in a while. You increase testosterone from this, especially if you win!
So there you go, have at it and don’t give up on the fact that it’s a process. As I’ve said before much of Alpha Male Traits stem from basic good physical health, so do not underestimate the benefits of feeling in your best physical shape.
