12 Muscle-Building Foods That Make Men More Attractive
The correct diet can work miracles not only for our figure and how we feel but also for our hormonal balance. Consuming certain food products can raise testosterone levels, in turn making men more attractive to the opposite sex.
Bright Side has put together a list of products that men definitely need to include in their diet if they want to conquer a woman’s heart — and just feel great about themselves.
Dietologists are still not in agreement about whether meat is harmful or good for you, as well as about the way in which it should be prepared. But one thing is clear: eating meat increases levels of testosterone. This particularly applies if you eat meat with the minimal amount of fat and do so only on a semi-regular basis (that is, not every day). You should substitute it on occasion for other products, particularly ones that contain a lot of protein.
Lobster, crab, shrimp — all of these can be added to pasta, rice, salads, or prepared as meals on their own. These products contain chemicals that raise testosterone levels. However, these chemicals are highly concentrated, so it’s advisable not to overdo it and to consume them only irregularly.
Eggs are rich in vitamin D, which helps sustain a normal level of testosterone in the blood. One egg a day is the optimum quantity to include in your diet. It’s not recommended that you eat more than this if you have problems with cholesterol, as there is a great deal of this contained in the egg yolk.
Watermelon improves blood circulation, has a positive effect on the heart, and helps regulate the level of cholesterol. It can be added to salads, made into a sorbet, eaten as a snack with feta cheese, or simply on its own. The only problem is that it’s only good to eat at one time of the year.
Cauliflower can reduce levels of estrogen (the female hormone) in your body whilst increasing levels of testosterone (the male hormone) simultaneously. It can be boiled as well as fried, but whichever way you prefer, make sure to add at least a small amount of it to your daily diet.
Honey is a great product for strengthening your immunity. Add one spoonful to your daily diet. You can have it with tea, fruit salads, or pancakes — the possibilities are endless.
Garlic contains a chemical that helps reduce stress and which also indirectly helps develop the muscles. Garlic can be added to almost any dish to "liven" it up in the same way you would add a spice.
The elements contained in grapes can help slow down the aging process and increase the activity of sperm. To help raise testosterone levels using this product, it’s enough to eat just a handful of grapes a day.
All kinds of beans are rich in vitamin D as well as protein. They can be eaten as part of soup, in salads, fried, and as an independent dish. They not only help to maintain testosterone levels but also really help the heart stay healthy.
Oysters are worth mentioning separately from seafood here since they contain a large amount of minerals and various other vital elements that support men’s health. Before eating them, it’s recommended that you add lemon juice and a little salt — this will help preserve the healthy elements within them.
Milk is full of vitamins that help muscles to grow. It also contains calcium, which strengthens the bones, and vitamin D, which increases testosterone levels. It’s better to drink milk with a low amount of fat and which contains the maximum amount of vitamin D (take a look at the percentage written on the carton/bottle).
Tuna is also rich in vitamin D. At the same time it contains few calories and is great for the heart. It can be cooked or simply eaten straight out of the can. However, it’s not recommended that you eat it on a regular basis.
