When it comes to gaining muscle mass and for those wanting to increase their sex drive, the simple and quick way is to use anabolic steroids. Pharmaceutical companies will give anabolic steroids a “better” sounding name and call it hormone therapy or testosterone replacement therapy. In actuality, the doctors are prescribing your steroids to increase your muscle mass and sex drive. You’ve seen those commericials that don’t even say testosterone, they say “Low T”. Then they show some 50 year old guy and his hot wife in bed or something clearing enjoying the old geezers new sex drive.
However taking anabolic steroids is not good. It is a drug, and it does have side effects. Instead, what I have found is a great way to increase your muscle mass and sex drive all without the use of steroids. Here is how.
Something happened to me over the past two months that has not happened to me since I left college,
I gained 15 lbs, increased my sex drive, I’m 43, AND an ectomorph.
Which means (being an ectomorph and old) I have TWO things working against me in the muscle building department, old age and bad genetics.
Over the last two months I was able to go from 183 to 198. I’m 6 foot tall. I got stronger too. In the past my weight would fluctuate a pound or three, but over the past few weeks I just watched my weight go up and up to where it is now. I’m totally stoked about my gains, but more stoked about HOW I gained 15 lbs, something that I have not done since college, more than 20 years ago.
On the incline barbell bench, I’m repping with 200lbs. I curl 50 lbs dumbells, and I military press 135 lbs for reps.
My sex drive has increased as well. All with out the use of drugs, like anabolic steroids.Find out how I gained 15 lbs in 60 daysClick To Tweet
In addition, my sex drive has increase two fold. Why? well keep reading and you’ll find out the simple reason.
Here is how I did it.
Step #1 Eliminate “bad” deodorants
#1. I eliminated all chemical cosmeceuticals from my life. First my deodorant. I was using Old Spice, I guess I was sold by those funny commercials, but the deodorant I believe, whether it is supported by research studies or not, but I believe it contains ingredients that mess with my testosterone in my body because it has estrogen mimics and anti-androgenic endocrine system disrupting chemicals.
These are the following, (I took this from anabolicmen.com)
these include (but are not limited to);
- Parabens (methyl-, butyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, heptyl-, etc) which are preservatives used in nearly all kinds of cosmetics, such as; sun lotions, moisturizers, personal-lubricants, shampoos, shaving gels, toothpaste, and even as food additives. They’re classified as xenoestrogens, and can have a weak affinity to estrogen receptors in the body.
- Phthalates which are commonly used to make plastics more flexible, but they are also used as stabilizers and emulsifying agents in many personal care items. Increased urinary phthlate traces have been strongly correlated with decreased testosterone in men, women, and children.
- Benzophenones (BP-1, BP-2, BP-3…) which are permeability enhancing UV-stabilizers are used in a wide range of personal care items, but most commonly in sunscreens. Concerns have been raised of their effect in reducing the activity of enzymes needed for testosterone production. This has been studied for BP-1, BP-2, and BP-3.
- Triclosan and Triclocarban, both of which are antibacterial agents found in many antibacterial soaps, lotions, hand sanitizers, etc. Not only are they highly ineffective at reducing bacteria, but they also have direct mechanism in lowering testicular testosterone production.
Step #2 Eliminate all perfumes.
These are really bad if you want to maintain your manliness.
Next, my soap and shampoo. Many soaps contain fragrance or perfume, if not all of them Without a doubt in my mind these mess with your testosterone levels.
Taken from ewg.org. This is very disturbing. Grab your nuts my friends (women you dont have because you cant, but this still effects you)
Did you know that a specific signal programs cells in our bodies to die? It’s totally normal and healthy for 50 billion cells in your body to die every day! But studies have shown that chemicals called phthalates can trigger what’s known as “death-inducing signaling” in testicular cells, making them die earlier than they should. Yep, that’s cell death – in your man parts. If that’s not enough, studies have linked phthalates to hormone changes, lower sperm count, less mobile sperm, birth defects in the male reproductive system, obesity, diabetes and thyroid irregularities.
Ok from what I can determine from reading this is that the cells in my balls are going to start dying earlier than they should. GREAT!!
I got rid of all perfumes out of my life. No cologne, no soaps, no shampoo’s, laundry detergent even ,nothing…
Step #3. Eliminate All Plastic in connection with foods and drinking.
Plastics cups, utensils, canned foods, styro foam, and water bottles, I got rid of all of them. I only drink out of glass bottles. Without a doubt in my mind, I’ve seen enough evidence that the stuff in plastic messes with your testosterone levels.
Taken from ewg.org
over the past dozen years, BPA, a synthetic estrogen, has been found to disrupt the endocrine system, even in trace doses. Bills to ban the chemical from baby bottles and other children’s food containers are before Congress, the Cailfornia legislature and other state and local lawmaking bodies. Recently, the baby bottle industry yielded to pressure from state officials and consumer groups and agreed to turn to non-BPA plastic.
Boom! That is all I did. It is really quite easy. The only drawback is the money. It does cost more to use glass bottles, better deodorant, and better laundry detergent, but really not that much. And not using plastic anymore when drinking or eating is pretty easy as well.
Look, unless you have been living under a rock all your life, you should know that TESTOSTERONE is THE player in the muscle building department and your sex drive. Women, listen up to. You do not need any more estrogen than you already have. Thus, all of this is meant for you too.
In conclusion, what I did was eliminate products that I believe lower my natural testosterone and increased my estrogen. I do not know why I did not do this sooner in my life. I spend all day and night trying to make supplements that help build muscle and reduce fat, when mean while I was putting products ON my body and in my body that I feel increase estrogen and decrease testosterone in the body. I almost feel it is common sense NOT to use these products, almost on the same mindset of tobacco. Most people and even yourself, focus on things to put into their body, mainly supplements and even steroids. However, eliminating products that decrease testosterone and elevate estrogen I feel is even more significant.
Here are some products that I use.
For deodorant, I bought this stuff.Primal Pit Paste Natural Deodorant, Aluminum Free, Paraben Free, No Added Fragrances, 2 Ounces, Lavender
Here is something else I am working on. Proteinfactory.com deodorant. It is in its infant stages of development, but I actually made myself some deodorant and have been using it for the last two months. I added these TESTOSTERONE boosting ingredients.
I call it my TESTosterone deodorant…get it “TEST”..hahaha but anyway, I made my own deodorant, and I suggest you make your own as well.
You need to add these 3 ingredients. Dr. Beradi, one of the most well respected “muscle building” docs out there showed how these ingredients raised test levels. See it here. That is the MAIN reason I used these oils.Young Living Idaho Blue Spruce Essential Oil 5 ml
Young Living Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood Essential Oil 5 Ml
Young Living Idaho Balsam Fir Essential Oil
I’ll make a video later on how to make your own deodorant. But in the mean time get these essential oils above and get ready to make some TESTOSTERONE deodorant. For the ladies, I would suggest you use this as well. I can almost guarantee you are going to be pleased and you’ll enjoy the new sex drive.
For soap I bought this.Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Liquid Soap, 32oz
and thisDr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps: Pure Castile Bar Soap, Peppermint 5 oz (8 pack)
For laundry detergent.The Honest Company Laundry Detergent – Free & Clear – 70 oz
To drink out of I simply use glass bottles. I bought a six pack and I fill them up and store them in the frig.Chef’s Star Glass water Bottle 6 Pack 18oz Stainless Steel Caps with Carrying Loops
You have to be careful of the products you buy because some totally bullshit you to thinking they are safe when in actuality they have perfumes and fragrance. I use an app called “THINK DIRTY.” Just type it in below, its free. You can scan items and check if they contain bad stuff.
P.S. Here is something cool. I live with my girlfriend’s son. He is 19. He also gained 15lbs of pure muscle literally at the same time I did. Our whole household is essentially chemical free. I firmly believe these changes also helped him gain muscle.
P.S.S. If you want a boost in your sex drive, no doubt this will help you.
