Mostly As: Congratulations! Your hormone of desire, testosterone, sounds like it is right where it should be. To keep it that way, keep up that regular exercise regimen and healthy diet and stay away from the sugar. It will do wonders for your passion, energy, and drive!
Mostly Bs: You could benefit from a little boost in your testosterone. Try pushing yourself to a few more days of exercise a week, make sure you’re getting enough lean proteins and healthy fats, and limit alcohol intake. The boost in energy you’ll get should make it easier to make exercise into more of a habit, and you’ll be having better sex as a result, which is also a great way to boost testosterone and burn some calories!
Mostly Cs: It sounds like you’re suffering from the symptoms of low testosterone. You may want to try supplements to get a little boost, and once you’re feeling a little better from that, you should have more energy to start adding some healthier diet and exercise habits to your life, which will boost your hormone of desire even more!
Symptoms of low testosterone may include:
- Decreased sex drive
- Loss of muscle
- Weight gain
- Low self esteem
- Thin lips
- Being excessively emotional
Testosterone is the hormone of desire, and it’s about much more than just sex. If you have too little testosterone, you’re lacking that energy and zest for life, as well as the confidence to make things happen. Taking steps to increase your testosterone levels may improve your energy, focus, and desire. It can also help improve your mood and help you become more toned and fit.
Even if you don’t feel up to it, give these tips a try:
Exercise: Start small. Go for a walk, dance, or ride your bike. Try doing yoga or strength training. Work up a sweat. Or try my newest high intensity challenge: do a high intensity activity like jumping rope or jumping jacks for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off. Repeat this process for 5 minutes. Lately, I’ve been doing it with jump squats and jump lunges – it’s tough, but it can provide a nice little testosterone kick. Try it and notice how your body responds to the boost in testosterone.
Relax: Make time for yourself every day to just relax. Even if it’s just for 10 minutes. Long-term, chronic stress robs us of testosterone. Give your body and mind a break so that you can feel your best.
Ditch the sugar and eat healthy fats: Sugar interferes with testosterone production, so if you want to stay balanced, ditch the sweet stuff. Fats are an important part of a healthy diet, and eating healthy fats – like the fats from avocados or walnuts – will help increase your testosterone production.
Supplement: Sometimes women need a little extra help boosting their testosterone. Talk to your healthcare practitioner about the natural supplement Tribulus Terrestris, which is a great way to get that boost.
