You might agree that a few years ago during the fat-free craze eating fats was considered taboo. Now the truth has come to light. Good fats are well, good for you.
The problem is that some people are still programmed to think that fats are bad.
Having helped hundreds of patients over the years from the United States Marines and Navy Sailors to the men that come through the doors of our medical clinic, as well as being a health journalist and avid fitness enthusiast, I know a thing or two about men’s health.
In this post, I will address fats, what kinds to eat to help you lose weight and to get into great overall shape.
Why consuming fats help with testosterone
It’s beneficial to add good omega 3 fats to your diet to help increase your testosterone.
This is because losing weight has been shown to help increase testosterone.
Many studies have proven that being overweight especially in the midsection (tummy fat) can cause testosterone levels to decline.
The problem is slimming down takes a lot of work.
Benefits of eating fat
Fats are an essential part of slimming down. Eating fat can trigger the body to lose more weight.
Eating fat sends signals to the body that you have enough fat stores; therefore, your body does not go into starvation mode and store unwanted fat.
Another benefit of eating fat is how full it makes you feel. Eating the same amount of starchy carbs will make you feel hungry much faster causing you to crave foods, snack unnecessarily, make poor food choices and eat more during the day.
However, not all fats are created equal.
Bad fats increase cholesterol and cause you to be at higher risk for several diseases. But good fats protect your brain, heart and support excellent health.
Omega 3’s are good fats.
The following list of fats will help you feel fuller, be more satiated, and allow you to slim down. This list will help you get in prime shape to increase testosterone naturally.
Good fats to include in your diet:
- Raw nuts
- Coconut milk
- Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds
- Wild Fish
- Flax seeds and Hemp seeds
Oils to include in your diet and to cook with:
- Olive Oil
- Vegetable oil
- Coconut Oil
- Peanut Oil
- Walnut Oil
- Avocado Oil
- Sunflower Oil
Add some high-quality fats to your diet and cut back on the carbohydrates and magic will start to happen.
You may find that your pants are getting loose and your stomach smaller.
You may find that you have more energy, feel stronger and sleep more soundly, which are all benefits of increasing testosterone.
Combine eating fats with super fast steps to creating more testosterone for an added boost to slimming down and feeling great.
