What if it was all related to testosterone. The outcomes of the many challenges that we face in life, as men, might simply be related to testosterone levels. Career, relationships, social, happiness and health. What if all these boiled down to a simply factor called testosterone. From what I’ve been reading, it might boil down to something as simple as that.
Being stuck in an unsatisfying career, being unhappy, being unhealthy, having the ‘nice guy syndrome‘ and being in a bad relationship might all boil down to you having low testosterone levels. Coincidentally (or not) the way most guys live their life is totally counterproductive for producing high testosterone levels in their body.
What are the habits of most guys generally? Here is what I think; junk food, fast food, too much alcohol, sitting around, low amounts of exercise, virtually zero weight lifting, poor sleeping habits and way too much sugary foods. These are literally the exact same things that limit the production of testosterone in a man’s body.
What are the habits that help your body produce sufficient levels of testosterone? Here they go; weight lifting, exercise, good sleep, clean foods, meat, avocado, healthy fats, low/ zero alcohol, zero junk/ sugary food, Brazilian nuts, almonds, vitamin D, magnesium and zinc. How many men do you know of that get sufficient amounts of all those items listed above? By sufficient, I mean every day, not once a month. Not many, right? Well, testosterone is the driving force behind a man. Testosterone gives you energy, drive and strength. High testosterone won’t let your body become overweight and won’t let your mind become depressed/ sad.
The fact that most men seem depressed, sad and unhappy with their lives has to say something. Then, you factor in the lifestyle that they live and you slowly start to get a picture. If you had healthy levels of testosterone you would be a MAN. That means that you would have the motivation to go after your dream career, health goal, relationship and social life. Going after your goals is what makes you happy. Being sad and drinking away your evenings wouldn’t even occur to you.
This is far from a proven fact, but from what I’ve been learning there might be a chance that it is all connected to testosterone. Those guys with the badass lives, beautiful girlfriends and coolest friends may simply have higher testosterone levels. If that is the case, then there is hope for all of us to get what we want out of life with a few major changes.
