ATTENTION MEN: Discover 3 Myths That Are Crushing Your Ability to Produce Testosterone.
In This Article You'll Discover How You're Eating Like a Woman, and How It's Killing The Most Important Hormone in Your Body, Making It Nearly Impossible to Burn Fat.
Forget everything you've heard about "eating healthy". Most of what you think is healthy is actually contributing to your bulging waistline and an inability to build muscle. Maybe you're experiencing these symptoms:
- Are you training hard & eating right, but still finding it difficult to burn fat and build lean, strong muscle?
- Are you experiencing a low sex drive, and an inability to recover from your workouts?
- Are you feeling run down or even depressed?
Hi I'm Chad Howse,
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, or if you’re simply trying to figure out how to build your strongest, leanest, healthiest body, then I’ve got good news for you.
I’m going to show you how to make simple changes to your diet that will give you MORE freedom, but allow you to burn more fat and build more muscle. You see, there’s one hormone that men need more than any other…
Most Diets Are Made for Women, NOT Men!
This hormone is so powerful for men, it’s been show to:
- Reduce your risk of cancer and disease,
- Lower your likelihood of suffering from depression,
- As well as dramatically improving our body’s ability to burn fat and build muscle.
I’ve helped guys from all walks of life, be they pro athletes or average Joe’s, build their ideal bodies. And through my years of experience I’ve discovered one constant…
Men Are Producing Less Testosterone and It's Making Us Fatter and Weaker as a Result.
Men are experiencing lower testosterone levels with each decade. We’re producing less of this powerful hormone that literally makes us MEN, with each generation. Our bellies are getting bigger and we’re producing less and less Testosterone… Coincidence?
Of course not.
As you begin to produce less testosterone, your body has a much more difficult time burning off excess body fat. To compound this, the more body fat you have, the more likely you are to suffer from “low T”.
It’s a vicious cycle that’s only compounded by what you’re eating RIGHT NOW.
And It's Not Your Fault!
Most diets simply aren’t made for men. They don’t provide us with the building blocks for testosterone. And if they DO contain the good fats we need in our diets, they fail to give us the good carbs we need to fuel our muscles.
Much of what we’re eating is KILLING OUR TESTOSTERONE, making us absorb and store more body fat and stopping us from building lean, strong muscle.
There is, however, a solution, and I came across it when my testosterone levels were nearing dangerous lows…
I’d been working out for a number of years and had already had some success. A new business took up most of my time and my physical goals focused more around burning fat while maintaining muscle than anything.
Always open to trying different things out, I began increasing my carb and protein intake while dropping the amount of dietary fat I was consuming. This, of course, was at the recommendation of not only my doctor, but the health and fitness magazines we all look to for guidance.
Myth #1: Dieting Helps You Burn Fat
Dieting, i.e. limiting your caloric intake, actually makes you store more fat, and burn muscle. You don’t need to dramatically cut calories to cut fat. Rather, you need to eat more of the right calories.
If you’re eating the right calories at the right times, you’ll force your body to burn fat and store muscle.
If your hormones are working optimally, your body works more like the well-oiled machine that it should be.
So don’t listen to your lady and cut calories. Instead, eat like a man. Have a diet that’s focused around YOUR needs, not hers.
I didn’t know why at the time, but I started losing muscle and gaining fat. Initially I thought I’d just reached a plateau with my training, so I tried a new program, but nothing improved. I changed how I lifted, what I lifted, and how often I worked out; but again, my results didn't budge, and the decline of my physique was constant and scary.
This was a number of years ago, before the research about fats and carbs was made common knowledge. It was at the height of the “good carbs” craze. When good carbs were the 'be all end all' for health.
Everything I read, everything my Mom read, everything everyone I knew read said that lean proteins and good carbs should be the staple of your diet if you want to get lean, ripped, and stronger. And this isn’t entirely untrue, what is untrue is to what degree these foods should be included in your diet.
But I digress. The point is, I didn’t know what was going on.
It was like my body was working against me, rather than for me.
I even went to the doctor to get tested for allergies. He found that yes, I had a number of food allergies, including an allergy to dairy. But his solution to my food allergies ended hurting me even more when he prescribed that I consume soy milk as a replacement for dairy.
Myth #2: Don't Eat Carbs Before Bed.
Are all carbs bad? No. They can be GREAT and effective IF USED PROPERLY and at the right time. In fact, if consumed at the right time they can actually help you hormonally as well. But NO ONE seems to be consuming them when they should.
We eat carbs at breakfast (a no-no), we eat them right before a workout (another no-no), and we don’t eat them at night when we actually should be eating them. I know this probably goes against everything you’ve heard regarding carbohydrates, and that’s why I’m writing this article.
If they aren’t used effectively, even “good carbs” can negatively effect your testosterone levels, hurt your insulin health, and make you carry more fat (which, in turn, will only further lower your testosterone levels).
The solution is to use these “healthy” food groups when they’re not going to be stored as body fat, but rather used to feed your metabolical and anabolic muscle, right after your workout.
My body was spiraling downwards, which made absolutely no sense to me. I should have been at my physical prime, but I was getting weaker and fatter!
And then, as if by divine intervention, I had a scheduled trip to go see a buddy in New York. Actually, I was there visiting a young lady, but I scheduled a lunch with a mutual friend who was doing some pretty impressive things in the health and fitness industry.
I hate to paint a gloomy picture of my life at this time. I mean, things were going really well. I was dating a nice girl, I had a business that was growing, and I was doing some traveling and having fun.
Life was, overall, good. But my body wasn’t performing like I wanted it to. It felt like I was in a hamster wheel. I'd work hard and "eat right", but the results never came. More than that, I was feeling down in the dumps, I was stressed, I lacked energy, and every other area of my life felt the negative effects to a body that just didn't perform how it should.
Anyhow, I went to my pal’s apartment one day while I was in New York. We had planned to eat a quick breakfast at his place, then get some work done in his apartment. When I got there, we made small talk, laughed a bit, and then got to cooking breakfast.
Keep in mind that, for the past 24 years of my life, all I’d heard was how bad fat was for you, how it makes you fat, and how it hurts your heart.
… And then this guy fires up his stove, covers his pan in butter, and cracks open 16 eggs to split between the two of us!
I was confused.
I was looking at him. He was as fit as anyone I’d seen. He was muscular, very energetic, and by all accounts happy, and this is what he ate?
Oh, and then he added bacon to the dining experience, and my mind was officially blown.
So I asked him, What’s with all the fat. Isn’t that bad for you?
My entire life I’d listened to health professionals tell me to avoid fat and eggs and cholesterol. But here he was, cracking open 16 whole eggs, and telling me that natural fats like saturated, polyunsaturated, and monounsaturated fats, DON’T ACTUALLY MAKE YOU FAT.
STUDY #2: A study published by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, studied the effect of dietary lipid consumption (animal fats) on levels of sex-hormone binding globulin (SHBG), free testosterone, and cholesterol in men.
They looked at how eating more dietary fats can influence levels of SHBG, free testosterone and cholesterol.
After consuming a diet with a high fat content (greater than 100 g fat/day) for two weeks, the mean plasma cholesterol level increased (p less than 0.02) while the mean SHBG level decreased (p less than 0.02).
Why are these stats important?About 2/3 of your body’s testosterone is bound to SHBG, and not “free”.Many in the scientific community believe that “free” testosterone is the only form of the hormone that counts, as it’s the only form of T that is actually ready to work on your tissue.
Myth #3: Fats & Red Meat Lead to Heart Disease & Obesity
Contrary to popular belief, the good fats you find in meats and fish actually prevent you from gaining body fat and ward off diseases like heart disease.
This myth is leading men to change their diets in a very ineffective and harmful manner.
We didn’t get into it in too much detail that day, but what he finished with saying sent me into a 4-year mission to discover how men truly need to eat. He said:
These fats actually help you naturally increase your testosterone levels.
I was floored…
Could this actually be true? Or was this guy just pulling my leg?
Could the single food group I’d always been told to avoid actually be the healthiest thing for me (and you) to eat?
Could ALL of the nutrition advice I'd been given up to this point in my life have been wrong?
And what about testosterone?
I’d always been told that testosterone isn’t a good hormone. That it makes men angry, covered with zits, and filled with rage. Could this hormone actually be good for me?
As soon as I got back from that trip I did one very smart thing - and yes, I still pat myself on the back for this: I got my testosterone levels checked.
I highly recommend you do this too.
Now, I was in my early twenties. I was fit, active, and seemingly in perfect health. So when I got the results back, and my testosterone levels were far below “optimal”, I was crushed, confused, and I felt betrayed. I’d been told to eat one way my entire life, now I’m finding out that this way of eating is actually making me less manly. That it’s making me absorb more fat and burn more muscle!
I’ve learned the dirty little secret that your favorite magazines, even your doctor, doesn’t want you to know:
Men need to eat differently than women. And most of the diets you’ll find on the book shelves and online, are made specifically for women, but don’t give men the nutrients, nor the foods that they want and need to be optimal.
Why do you think this is?
Let me ask you another question: Who do you think is more worried about their weight, the guy on the left, or the babe on the right? Even though the woman is in great shape, and the guy isn't, her weight is an emotional issue, and emotion sells. Thus, the health and fitness industry, my industry, panders to the group that will earn them the most money.
We Can't Forget About Men!
And so, there are a few problems with most diets for men. For one, they aren't sustainable. They're filled with foods that we hate to eat. So even though we may be able to diet for a few weeks, we inevitably binge and fall off the wagon. Secondly, most diets don't give us the foods we need, like a hefty amount of red meat, fish, and other meats.
If we don't supply our bodies with the building blocks for testosterone, we're not going to have the healthy levels we need to be at our best, not just aesthetically, but with regards to our health and performance as well. Men need a guide, a plan, a way of eating that they can sustain and enjoy, but that will also help us become healthier, stronger men. And so I went to work to create the ideal diet for men...
Over the past 4 years I’ve discovered how to naturally enhance testosterone levels with simple changes to diet and environment.
I’ve written for Men’s Health on this very topic. I’ve brought my own testosterone levels to new OPTIMAL levels, and as a result I’ve never been more ripped or stronger in my life.
4 Secrets to Naturally Increase Testosterone
Secret #1: Take more vitamin D.
Most scientists and doctors agree that”free testosterone” is the only form of the hormone that matters because it’s free to move around the body and repair tissue. Vitamin D helps “free” the testosterone in your body that’s bound to proteins. The problem: we don’t consume enough vitamin D. Consume 3,000 IU upon rising and before bed.
Secret #2: Take 2 cold showers a day.
Your testosterone levels are highest between 4am-6am in the morning. Taking a cold shower at night before bed will help you sleep, but also help you naturally enhance your testosterone levels. Do the same upon rising to wake up but get your T levels boosted. Have the shower last for 10 minutes both in the morning and at night. And keep it as cold as possible.
Secret #3: Avoid plastics.
Plastics contain chemical estrogens that raise your body’s estrogen levels, which then lower your testosterone levels. Avoid carrying your water in plastic bottles and your food in plastic containers.
Secret #4 - Take mini-vacations.
This isn’t talked about very often, but stress is one of the greatest inhibitors of testosterone because it results in the release of cortisol in your body. One of the way to measure testosterone is in relation to cortisol. If your cortisol is high, your testosterone can’t be. It’s important to de-stress once a month. Get out in nature, get off the computer, and unplug.
I have more energy, life is better, business is better, and I can attribute each of these improvements to a way of eating, and a way of living that I now adhere to.
I don't eat boring, bland foods, nor do I have a diet that's exceptionally "healthy" by the standards of those female diets you're probably following right now, but it is healthy for men. I'm able to stay in top shape year round, keeping my body fat levels low, and my muscle lean, even through the holiday season.
You don't need to eat less to burn fat. You need to eat the right foods at the right times to build your ideal body through natural testosterone enhancement. I've created a method that helps men to do just that.
Thus, I created the Man Diet.
I've experienced first hand the lack of guidance to help men naturally enhance the most powerful hormone in our bodies. I've tried the fad diets, the quick fixes. I've tried them all. But nothing fixed the underlying issue that's plaguing more and more men every year: We're Experiencing Low Testosterone And No One Cares!
Our doctors give us testosterone injections that make them money, cost us thousands, and create a dependency on said injections to maintain optimal T levels. They ruin our body's ability to NATURALLY produce testosterone!
They prescribe diets that don't work, that are meant for women, that lower our testosterone levels and make us less manly. Our environments, the objects that surround us, and the lives we live, create an atmosphere for Low T. What we need is a way to eat and a way to live that will help us naturally enhance out testosterone levels for the REST OF OUR LIVES.
That's why I created the man diet. And boy, am I glad I did.
Client Review #1
“Chad's diet pulled the wool from over my eyes. When I started eating like a man, my body fat decreased, my energy increased, and I'm able to actually enjoy my meals. The diets my wife put me on didn't work because they weren't for men, at least I know that now, and I can follow the Man Diet for the rest of my life.” ~ Nate

The more research I did, the more I saw glaring flaws in how nutrition is taught, and what's considered "common knowledge".
I saw a dire need in my own life, and those of my clients, for a structured approach to nutrition that will show men how to naturally enhance testosterone levels. An approach that will give men a schedule that's very easy to follow, where they can enjoy their meals without dieting or starving themselves, yet yield better results. So that's what I created.
The Man Diet is THE WAY MEN NEED TO EAT. Alas, let's call it like it is, men need simple, easy to follow instructions that don't take up too much time and are easily applied to their routines.
We need to be able to eat in a way that fits our lifestyles, whether we work the night shift, the day shift, or the night and day shift. So along with the Man Diet, I created the Meal Log, that allows you print out a sheet and plug in what to eat depending on the time of day, and your schedule.
I then created the Cheater's Guide to Eating Like a Man, that shows you how to position your cheat meals, and cheat days, so you can enjoy ice cream on occasion, without sacrificing your health or fitness goals. Actually, in the cheater's guide you'll learn how to cheat to enhance your results. It's a pretty cool addition to the Man Diet.
I didn't want to stop there, so I added a Supplement's Guide that will show you what supplements are good for you, and which ones are a complete waste of your time and money, as well as a QuickStart Guide that will show you how to set up the Man Diet to fit YOUR SCHEDULE and LIFESTYLE.

Here are some more reasons why the Man Diet is for you:
1. You get to tailor your diet to your routine. There is no strict “do this not this” when it comes to meal scheduling. We’ve created multiple scenarios that you can tailor to your routine, whether you’re a night owl, or an early riser, there’s a place in the Man Diet for you.
2. You don’t have to count calories. I’ve always hated counting calories. It makes a nutrition plan that much harder to follow. So we’re not going to do it. We show you what to eat and when, and the guidelines are set up in such a way that you can eat more of the healthy, tasty foods you love, and burn even more fat.
3. You get to cheat. We all have cravings. What most people don’t know is that there are actually ways we can use these cravings to our fat loss advantage, not to our detriment. In the Man Diet we show you how to cheat so you can burn more fat eating tasty, even sugary meals.
4. You’re going to be able to sustain. Most diets, especially for men, aren’t sustainable. This isn’t so much a diet, as a way of eating that you can maintain -easily – for the rest of your life. Your results don’t have to stop, ever.
5. You’re going to feel the changes within the first 2 weeks. You won’t have to wait long to feel, and see the changes that the Man Diet is making to your physique. Many of my clients begin to see real, visible changes within the first 2 weeks.

Answers from Chad Howse to your most frequently asked questions:
1. Isn’t eating fat bad for your heart?
The fats you’re going to consume in the Man Diet are actually good for your heart. Where many people run into problems is in pairing these natural fats with high glycemic carbohydrates. The spike in insulin that comes from the carbs, changes how these healthy fats are absorbed and stored by your body.
In the Man Diet we’re going to show you what foods to combine so you can see the benefits of the fats that should dominate your diet.
2. What if I buy the Man Diet and I can’t follow it?
I created this diet to help as many guys as I possibly can. I want to change the way we think about nutrition, so we can start, once again, being optimal men. So you can experience the benefits of eating how a man should, like I have, and so many of my clients have.
If you don’t like the diet, you have 60 days – no questions asked – to get a refund. I don’t want you to spend your hard earned money on something that you’re not going to use or follow. This is the best diet for men who want to burn fat, build muscle, and build their ideal bodies. But if you lack the discipline to follow it, fire me an email and I’ll give you a full refund.
3. My wife does the cooking in my household, is the Man Diet healthy for her as well?
This diet is also healthy for your wife, with a few corrections, namely in the vitamins and supplements that you’re going to consume. There are also two options for the diet. I did this to make it easier to follow no matter your schedule. She can consume the same meals as you, but she will simply follow a different feeding schedule.
