Hey Guys Are You Maintaining Your Testosterone Levels?

SHARE & COMMENT

Maybe you are a man whose is past 30 years and noticing unwelcome changes in your body. Your waistline might be expanding and where there used to be firm muscle there is now soft fat. You might even feel out of breath after slight exertion such as climbing a flight of stairs.

Your mood may have changed and you have become more irritable or depressed and may feel a general loss of energy and tiredness and you may have little desire to be physically active.  If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is possible that you are suffering from low testosterone levels.

Testosterone is the male hormone that makes a man ‘a man’. Studies show that more and more men are experiencing lowered levels and the blame is being put on our modern sedentary and inactive world. After all men are supposed to ‘work’ physically and they have been designed for this just as they have been doing since time began.

But these days’ men spend most of their time sitting – in the car, at the desk and back home on the couch in their leisure time. They can literally get through entire days (even weeks) without having to ‘move a muscle’. Add unhealthy diets to this full of processed foods and the poor food choices many men make and you have a ticking health bomb.

 

The end result is that men are aging at an accelerated rate. As levels of testosterone decline both visible and invisible signs of aging including loss of muscle and bone strength, an increase of body fat especially inside the abdomen, a decline in the efficiency of major body systems such as the heart/lung system, joint degeneration and right down to the transfer of oxygen and nutrients from the blood to the cells is compromised.

This downward health spiral leads directly to an increased risk of disease and men are dropping like flies all around us. These men are someone’s father, brother or spouse and their shortened lives have a huge affect on those that love them.

How easy it is to take some action and crank up levels of testosterone so a higher quality and maybe more quantity of life is achieved. Firstly get started on a strength training program and reclaim lost muscle tissue so the metabolism (the body’s engine) is boosted and testosterone levels are rekindled.

Add to this a healthy eating plan that contains a protein rich diet with as few processed foods as possible. Whole natural foods cooked from scratch are the way to go. Hint – foods that do not have a food label.

These two things are key contributors to help you maintain healthy levels of testosterone.

Men absolutely need to do regular and intense physical activity if they wish to keep their manliness along with a disease free life. You will produce more of all the good hormones like testosterone and growth hormone (the youth hormone) for the ongoing repair and maintenance of the human body.

You surely wouldn’t just drive your car without ever maintaining it till it stops would you so you need to maintain your body with both proper exercise and healthy eating if you wish it to keep working for you.
