Ask anyone from your barber to your doctor, and they’ll tell you a healthy diet means slashing the fat.
Heck, you don’t even NEED to ask most of the time. People love to hand out unsolicited diet advice. Go low-fat, and you will be fit as fiddle they’ll insist.
So why do you feel so weak and rundown all the time? The truth might shock you.
If you’re following that advice yourself—obsessing over the fat in your food and stressing over the meat and dairy you eat—there’s a new study you need to hear about.
It turns out you can RELAX and start to eat more of the foods you love again.
And most importantly, when you do, it could help restore your drooping energy and sagging strength. Plus, it may even help protect your heart at the same time.
Because new research exposes the truth about the low-fat diet. It turns out, it’s RUINING some men’s health by WRECKING their testosterone levels.
How low T could destroy your health
Your body needs a certain amount of fat… INCLUDING saturated fat… for overall proper function. And if new research is any indication, men, in particular, need it.
Guys who go low-fat have lower levels of testosterone, the essential “manly” hormone.
The levels in the study weren’t enough to be considered deficient (at least by mainstream standards). But they were clearly lower overall.
Men on a “normal” diet had levels of 435.5 ng/dL, versus 411 ng/dL for men following the mainstream-pushed low-fat diet.
That’s precisely the wrong direction for your hormones. Because in older men, in particular, lower levels of testosterone can lead to…
- low energy
- memory struggles and “brain fog”
- sexual dysfunction
- weight gain
- muscle loss
Testosterone is also essential to blood flow and heart function. In fact, lower levels can lead to coronary artery disease and even heart failure.
LOW-FAT linked to LOW TESTOSTERONE
Part of the reason for the drop in testosterone that your body needs cholesterol (especially HDL) to make hormones, including T.
Cut the fat, and you cut the cholesterol. Cut the cholesterol too much, and you could miss out on your hormones.
A low-fat diet could also cause you to miss out on other hormone-balancing essentials, including protein and zinc.
Now don’t get me wrong. This isn’t permission to go hog wild and scarf down every fatty food you could find. You’ll end up eating a lot of junk food that way, which will do just as much harm as your low-fat diet ever did.
Instead, it’s just a call for a return to COMMON SENSE when it comes to diet. Stop stressing about eating healthy fats. And that includes some full-fat dairy and your favorite cuts of fresh, organic, meats. And you AND your testosterone levels will end up happier.
And if you’re looking to make some changes… say to lose a little weight… skip the processed foods and refined carbs instead of stressing and obsessing over your fat intake.
