5 Bulletproof Ways to Boost Your Testosterone Levels

Testosterone is the primary hormone that defines male characteristics. Every guy wants more testosterone, because it means bigger, stronger muscles, more energy, and of course, more libido.

It’s mainly produced in the testicles and production really ramps up in puberty, giving men their big muscles, deep voices and hair growth.

Not only is it the hormone that literally makes you a man but it’s extremely important to cultivate if you want to have a high quality life.

It’s proven to increase all body health, enhance sexual performance and grant a sharp and cunning mind.

Unfortunately however, modern men have the lowest test levels in our entire history, mostly caused by bad habits and estrogens in our food.

Today’s average male has around 190 to 300ui of testosterone while in the 1950s the average male had around 600 to 1000ui.

No wonder we feel so bad and tired all the time! No wonder modern men are so weak and lazy in general! That’s not you, though—we know our readers want better than this.

If you have high testosterone levels, you have a HUGE advantage over everyone else around you—an advantage that carries through to work, sex, and life in general

So, with that in mind, here’s a quick guide on how you can start to naturally boost your testosterone levels.

1. Food & Supplements

Let’s start with the most important tip in this article, which is what we fuel our body with. As the old saying goes, you are what you eat…

…and this is ESPECIALLY true with testosterone. Unfortunately, most men in the world eat foods that kill testosterone on a regular basis.

You can drastically change your T levels by simply adjusting your diet, and cutting out some of these nasty, testosterone killing foods, too.

Foods to Avoid

  • Soy Products – Always avoid soybeans, soymilk, soy oil and any soy derivatives, because soy products are uniquely rich in phytoestrogens, chemicals that mimic estrogen effects in the human body. Almost all processed food nowadays contains soy, which is associated with gynecomastia (man boobs), low testosterone, and high estrogen.
  • Sugar – High sugar consumption causes low testosterone for several reasons. Not only does it raise stress hormones that lower testosterone production, but it also increases aromatase, an enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen.
  • Alcohol & Beer – There’s no problem drinking a few on the weekends, but high consumption of alcohol increases aromatase conversion. Beer in particular should be avoided if you want to have high testosterone levels.

Foods to Consume

  • Healthy Proteins – Having a high protein intake helps your body reduce fat levels, therefore reducing aromatase stored in fat tissue. Good sources of protein are beef, eggs, fish, chicken and pork.
  • Healthy Fats – You cannot produce testosterone if you don’t have the material to build it, and good FAT is what your body uses to make testosterone. You can consume generous amounts of fat from olive oil, coconut oil, butter, nuts, seeds etc. and your body will not store this fat in tissue, only fuel to create great T levels. The fat stored in tissue is generated by sugar and carbohydrate excess.
  • The Right Vitamins & Minerals – Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin D are the most proven supplements to increase testosterone. Especially magnesium, which also helps increase deep sleep.

There’s also plenty of herbs to boost testosterone, like maca, Japanese armor weed, and more. The basis will always be your diet though, so we recommend lots of healthy proteins and healthy fats for a high test level!

2. Avoid Estrogens

This is not widely covered, but it is one of the biggest public health issues modern men face in the Western world.

Over the last decade, increased use of endocrine disruptors like plastic and other chemicals are making the world more and more estrogenic, and it’s slowing affecting males in a very negative way.

Substances like BPAs and phthalates mimic estrogen, so when you use plastics, which are in everything these days, you’re slowly getting a drip-feed dose of chemicals that will increase your estrogen levels. Not good!

So, try to avoid using plastic to store food or water, and opt for glass instead. If you can find plastic that is BPA free (it will say on the container), this is a good option, too.

Another way to avoid these estrogenic compounds is to drink filtered water. There’s unfortunately a small amount of birth control, Prozac, and other chemicals in the water supply, so if you can drink filtered water, you’ll save your testosterone levels.

3. Lift Weights

Ok, so we already mentioned that lowering fat levels will decrease a compound called aromatase in your body, which means lowering fat levels will INCREASE your body’s testosterone levels.

The best way to lower your body’s fat levels, is to lift weights—particularly to do compound exercises like:

  • Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Overhead Press
  • Bench Press
  • Power Clean

When you do these exercises, you signal your body to start producing more anabolic hormones (like testosterone and human growth hormone) to repair, and come back bigger and stronger.

So, not only does lifting weights boost your testosterone, it also burns fat, makes you stronger, and makes you look better. What’s not to love?

If you already have a workout routine that focuses on this, then great—if not, starting strength is a great place to start.

We also recommend using a pre-workout supplement which can help increase energy levels before and during a workout, giving you that extra motivation you need.

4. Get A Deep Sleep

Quality sleep is not only good for your health in general, but is important for your testosterone production, too.

What’s important isn’t just the hours of sleep, however—although this is important. Research is showing us that it’s the quality of sleep that counts, moreso than the quantity of hours slept.

Try to eliminate any stress out of your life, because stress is a big thing that interferes with quality sleep. Avoid electronics an hour before bed, and try reading a book or having sex instead.

Always aim to get 8-9 hours of sleep, especially if you’re trying to burn fat and increase testosterone levels. Studies show us that the majority of testosterone is actually produced while you’re sleeping, so don’t miss out on this quality opportunity to naturally boost your testosterone levels.

5. Have The Right Mindset

People tend to ignore this, because it’s more vague and harder to measure, but your mindset absolutely determines your testosterone levels.

You need to approach life with more energy and desire. To fully optimize your testosterone levels, you need to be a man and live on your own terms.

Think about it—how can you be an ultra high testosterone alpha male if you’re constantly worried about getting fired, or taking orders from people you HATE? You CAN’T!

Life is not meant to be lived stressed out all the time, and doing things you don’t want to do. Stress generates cortisol which drastically drops T production.

If you are in a situation you don’t want, create a plan to change it ASAP.

Your work, your relationships, and your lifestyle must be enjoyable.

And most importantly, have a lot of sex with REAL women. Don’t jerk off—in fact, we recommend you read our article on nofap and why it’s so important to boost testosterone levels naturally.

Your body notices the difference, and will reward you with more testosterone when you have sex with actual women.

That’s it, now go make it happen. You now have all the tools you need to boost your testosterone naturally, and get high testosterone levels.
