3 Holiday Snacks That Will Boost Your Testosterone
Testosterone is the hormone every man wants. It’s vital to building muscle, burning body fat and increasing sexual satisfaction. As we edge closer to Christmas, you may be thinking of having a break from the usual workout routine to enjoy the festive food. Something you might not have considered however, is that your holiday snacks could be boosting your testosterone levels without you realizing.
This is where we cross over to Art Of Manliness, which has a useful list of foods which can help keep you pumped over the next month or so. It also runs through the basics of how testosterone is produced in the body and its direct relationship with weightlifting:
Diet and Testosterone
Testosterone levels are affected by a whole range of things, diet being one of them. While eating testosterone-friendly food is necessary for optimizing testosterone levels, it isn’t sufficient. You also need to throw in some heavy weightlifting along with some lifestyle changes like reducing stress and sleeping better.
Summer Sausage And Cheddar Cheese
My all-time favorite holiday snack is a plate of summer sausage and sharp cheddar cheese. When Buddy the Elf told the Gimbels Santa that he “smelled like meat and cheese,” that phony Santa should have taken it as a compliment.
Meat and cheese are loaded with testosterone-boosting cholesterol and fats. Plus, they’re delicious. Combined, a serving of summer sausage and cheddar cheese provides 65 mg of cholesterol and 18 g of fat (most in the form of saturated fat). Of course, when I snack on summer sausage and cheese, I’m not just eating a single serving. So we can double those numbers. Plus, sausage and cheese are a good source of protein, which builds muscles, which boosts T.
