Diets to Increase Testosterone – Which Ones are the Best?

If you have belly fat like I did, you most likely also have low testosterone, like I did. So, the bottom line is you need to lose weight to get rid of that belly fat. Losing weight is key to increasing low testosterone in men. Today I am going to let you know which diets and/or detox plus diet systems are the best diets to increase testosterone.

There are four different diets that I will cover in this article. All of them are great and at the end I will let you know which one I recommend the most for increasing low testosterone, although they are all good.

Let me start off with the 2-week diet.

What is the 2-Week Diet and What Will it do for Me?

Interesting Fact: Many Americans spend 83% of their time gaining fat instead of burning it.

Fortunately, with the proper eating and diet strategy, you can burn 8 to 16 Pounds of fat in just 2 weeks.

In the world today and especially in America, we can achieve pretty much anything we want. An still, too many of us just can’t resist eating foods that are not good for us. Much of it has no nutritional value and in fact is making us obese in far too many cases.

Obesity and obesity related illnesses are killing more Americans than any other cause of death. And in males that are overweight, low testosterone is a major problem in the world today.

Here is just a small glimpse of what Americans are suffering from, due to obesity:

  • Heart attacks and strokes that can immediately end the lives of people we love.
  • Back and joint pain that keeps you stuck on the couch and keeps you in a depressed mood all the time.
  • And then there is diabetes, liver failure, sore muscles, arthritis, low testosterone, lack of energy, sleep disorders and many other medical issues that cost thousands of dollars in prescription medications every year.

And have you seen the obesity rate in our children in the world today. It is epidemic! This makes me very sad.

I have know many overweight people who would tell me this, “You know, it’s not so bad. I can live with this.” They were wrong. Many of them are spending up to 20 hours a day gaining weight, while eating at least three meals a day.

We all need to understand, our bodies are either burning fat or gaining fat. Sorry, but there is no middle ground.

It is a sad fact that most people are spending most of the day stuck in the fat-gaining mode. And, this is especially true for those that are already overweight. The odds are, the only time they are burning fat is when they are asleep.

This is where the 2-week diet comes in. Its goal is to help you turn your body into a fat burning machine. It will help you burn fat for much more than a few hours a day. With this program, your body will be able to burn fat for at least 12 hours a day.

Many people have reported losing 12 pounds or more in just these 2 weeks.

Our bodies have an inherent natural ability to burn fat. With the information in this diet plan, you can burn a lot of fat in two short weeks.

The two week plan works in 3 phases, that are very easy to follow.

In general terms, here is how it works:

  1. First, it turns your body into a fat-burning machine for at least 12 hours a day. By burning fat 12 hours a day, you will not need the difficult workouts that most people need. But, exercise never hurts and will increase your weight loss in the two weeks.
  2. It will show you have to make your workouts easier and more effective.
  3. And finally, you will see weight loss of a pound or more per day on this program.

At the end of 2 weeks, you can expect to have lost 8 – 12 pounds of fat or more. Everyone is different so results will vary.

If you continue with the plan after two weeks, it will only help you lose more weight and help you look even better.

It is up to you. Make the change for the better, not just for yourself but for everyone you know who cares about you and wants to see you be the best person you can be.

That pretty much sums up the 2-week diet. Now let us have a look at the 3-week diet.

The 2 Week Diet

What is the 3-Week Diet and is it Better for Me than the 2-Week Diet?

Another interesting fact: People who are overweight are up to 12 times more likely to develop diabetes. 

I am one of those people. I wasn’t obese but I was around 30 – 40 pounds overweight and I did in fact develop type 2 diabetes. I also have a fatty liver and yes, low testosterone. I worked far too many hours and did not eat right. Think about that, do you do the same thing.

If you are like me and you don’t take care of your excess body fat, you are or will be walking around with a time bomb ticking in your body, just waiting to explode and ruin your life in many different unpleasant ways.

And as I mentioned in the 2-week diet part of this article, diabetes isn’t the only thing you have to worry about.

Excess body fat can also cause many other issues:

  • Aching joints, back pain, headaches, and more. Getting up in the morning can be a painful experience, and the pain can last all day.
  • Chronic fatigue and exhaustion that makes it difficult to enjoy life. Worse yet, many people have trouble falling asleep as well.
  • Severe illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression, and even brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

I know it is very hard to break the cycle, but if I can do it, so can you. You have probably tried many things to lose weight. Most of us do. You lose some weight, but the fat just comes back after a few weeks of falling off the diet. I know, I have been there too.

Even if you eat natural foods, you can still gain weight.

You can exercise all you want, but if you aren’t eating foods to burn fat, you won’t lose much, if any weight. As a matter of fact, it has been proven that too much exercise will actually cause you to gain weight, because you will start to lose muscle if they are overworked.

The real answer to Long-Term Fat Loss is natural and actually very easy with the correct strategies.

As I mentioned earlier our bodies do two things really well:

  1. Create body fat.
  2. Burn body fat.

#1 is obviously a lot easier but we need to learn how to make #2 happen a lot more so we can get healthy.

Luckily for us, it turns out that your body is designed to burn fat effectively and efficiently if we do the right things and under the right conditions.

The 3-week diet will show you how to do the right thing and create the right conditions.

This diet and complete system will put your body into fat-burning mode more often, and here is what will happen:

  1. First, flush and cleanse the inside of your body to make way for the healthy nutrition that is going to take over.
  2. Next, shift your body into fat-burning mode for at least 12 hours a day. This will allow you to completely obliterate the fat.

Once you have lost the weight, you will be at a much lower risk of diabetes, and of course you will look and feel much better! Hopefully you will be able to eliminate most or all of your prescription drugs.

Some people I know have lost 23 pounds in just 3 weeks using this system.

And if you like to drink coffee, this program is even easier.

Losing weight is life altering. It is more than just Freedom, it is your life. You will once again be able to run with the kids, hike up that mountain, go swimming, and you will have the energy you had when you were young.

To me, any of these diets is a no-brainer.

The 3 Week Diet

So, what does the 4-week diet have in store for me?

What is the 4-Week Diet – Is it Twice as Good as the 2-Week Diet?

I wonder, is it possible that the key to a long and healthy life could be Eating MORE Carbs, Not Less? The science doesn’t lie. Eating the proper amount of carbs, protein and yes, fat, are the keys to a healthy and happy life.

It’s true. But here is the important part of eating more carbs for good health – you have to eat more good, or complex, carbs and you have to eliminate bad, or simple, carbs. We already knew that most likely, yet that is not how we eat.

Good carbs include things like fresh fruit; non-starchy vegetables, non-gluten grains; nuts and beans; and non-pasteurized dairy products.

Processed foods are just plain bad for us. All those extra additives and preservatives, yuck!

Some of the bad carbs include: refined grains; processed foods; white potatoes; soda; and sugar.

We need to add more good carbs to our diet and get rid of bad carbs. Do this by following these three steps:

1. Follow the Glycemic Index (GI)

The Glycemic Index ranks foods according to their effect on your blood glucose level. Foods with a high GI, such as white bread and short-grained white rice, are converted almost immediately to blood sugar, causing your blood sugar levels to spike rapidly.

Low GI foods, such as brown rice, are digested much more slowly causing a lower, more gradual change in blood sugar levels.

You can find copies of the GI Index online. It is a good idea to print out a copy and start referring to it before you eat any carbs, until you learn what carbs are good and which are bad.

2. Eat more fiber

Fiber content is key to a carb being “good” or “bad” for you. That’s because fiber provides our bodies with numerous benefits, including:

• It lowers our blood sugar level – key to preventing diabetes.
• It slows absorption of sugar into the blood, helping us avoid dangerous blood sugar peaks and valleys.
• It helps prevent constipation and may help prevent colon cancer.
• It makes you feel fuller so you end up eating less.

Make a real and focused effort to eat more fiber. Fiber can be found in high amounts in fruits, vegetables and beans.

3. Start reading labels

One of the best ways to avoid processed foods and ensure you consume more fiber is to carefully read the labels of the food products you buy. Three things to take particular note of are on labels are:

Total Carbohydrates – this gives you the total amount of carbohydrates in the food, per serving. Often, grams of “fiber,” grams of “sugars” and grams of “other carbohydrates” add up to the grams of “total carbohydrates” on the label.

Dietary Fiber – this refers to the total amount of fiber in the food, per serving.

Sugars – this gives you the total amount of carbohydrates from sugar in the food, from all sources – natural sources like lactose and fructose as well as added sugars like high-fructose corn syrup.

If your diet has been less than ideal in the past and you have accumulated excess weight that you would now like to get rid of, you may be ready to lose that weight using the very popular 4 Week Diet System.

This diet plan is not like other diet plans. This system focuses on hormones that have a direct impact on weight gain and weight loss. Dieters  on this plan have seen amazing results.  People are consistently losing 24 pounds and more on this plan so by definition, it does appear to be twice as good as the 2-week plan.

The 4 Week Diet

What is the Red Tea Detox? – A Complete Detox and Weight Management System.

The program consists of a complete 14 day detox plan that takes full advantage of the tea and the three weight loss principles developed by Liz that maximize the amount of fat you can lose.

Two of the three principles are in disagreement with what most doctors say about losing weight, but combined with the tea, they are producing amazing results in people across the world.

The three principles are as follows:

  • 1st Principle – Eat MORE (of the right foods), Weigh LESS.
  • 2nd Principle – Reduce STRESS.
  • 3rd Principle – Exercise LESS (doing the right exercises), lose MORE Weight.

Unfortunately, most people are eating too little and exercising too much. This is not healthy and actually works against their fat loss.

The Red Tea Detox System is all about changing this “incorrect thinking” and helping people lose more weight faster. With The Red Tea Detox, there are no more diet failures and no more guilt or remorse. When you drink it regularly, and follow the program and the rules, you can quickly shed 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more pounds, depending on your starting point and how much weight you need to lose.

With this program, you should soon be wearing the clothes you used to love to wear and you will always feel the energy you want to have.

The great thing about The Red Tea Detox System is that it is based on more than a decade of research and almost three years of real-world testing. The reviews I have read are all positive.

It’s a complete program that quickly detoxes the body to “flush away” fat, and it works fast, for everyone – no matter how much or how little you have to lose.

With The Red Tea Detox System, many people have lost five, ten, and even fifteen pounds of fat or more in just 14 days. All you have to do is follow the program. If you already have the correct eating habits and the correct exercise routine, all you need to do is add the red tea to your daily routines and you will lose weight. That is what I am doing now.

Of course, if you want to lose more weight after the first 14 day detox, all you have to do is repeat the program until you reach your goal.

The Red Tea Detox

Wow, That is a Lot of Information on Diets. But, Which One do I Recommend?

I am not going to lie, these are all good diet plans and systems for losing weight and getting you healthy, while also helping to increase testosterone if you are a male with Low T.

I think it comes down to how long you would like to try one out. Maybe it is best to start with the 2-week diet. But then I really like the fact that the 4-week diet focuses on hormones which for males with low testosterone, would be my recommendation.

If I have to recommend one, I would recommend the Red Tea Detox System. It is a complete system for diet, exercise, mental state and so much more. I am doing it now and I like it a lot. And yes, the tea tastes good.

 

Best of luck to you all!

  1. I’m in my late 20s and at times I feel like there are changes occurring at this moment in my life. I would definitely try the 2-week diet for two reasons. One, I would like to see quick results even there are minimum but I would like to see what happens after the two weeks. And two, because I am not a really committed person and my lack of discipline is a negative factor in my life, especially when it comes to diets. Even though I play soccer and coach, I would love to get back in shape and be as fit as possible. Thank you for sharing!

    • I could not agree more. Seems like longer than two weeks to try something would be difficult. You can lose quite a bit of weight in two weeks, if you are overweight. You don’t sound like an overweight guy so two weeks is probably plenty for you.

      Thank you for reading my article and finding it useful.

  2. After reading your article, I feel like the 3-week diet is best for me. I am not obese or overweight yet, but I want to take the proper steps to create a healthy life style. I have some of the symptoms you mentioned in this section – aching joints, headaches, and fatigue – want to better myself by loosing the fat I do have while getting back to that middle weight for my height and body type. The flush and cleanse sounds intriguing, as this detox method will better my health in so many ways. This is the best option I have seen out their- great review!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. I work really hard on creating reviews that will provide the best possible information to help everyone make informed decisions for their health.

      I do think the 3-week diet is the best option for most people.

      The detox and cleanse will help anyone doing this diet. Never hurts to get things cleaned out every once in a while.

  3. Hi Curtis! This isn’t the first article I’ve read on your site. Although you site is targeted at men struggling with low testosterone levels, I’m finding alot of the content is applicable to health enthusiasts who simply want to acquire optimal health like I do. 

    I haven’t committed to a short term diet before like the 2 week or 4 week diets you described. Typically, I’ve studied about ingredients which aren’t good for me and tried my best to avoid them as a whole, however, I can see how a 2 week stint could work. With a 2 week stint, it’s a short term commitment, so it should be easier to modify the behaviors since your only committing for a short term. My question is…how do you maintain the success of the 2 week – 4 week diets after it’s over?

    • All of these diets teach you how to eat the right things to keep the weight off. So, they are set for two, three or four weeks but you should continue to eat right after you learn the right way for you and your body.

      Yes, my site is all about overall health with a focus on helping men with low testosterone issues.

      Thank you so much for reading my articles.

  4. Hey this was a really interesting article, it was very informative with certain diets.  I have never dieted before but i really want to get back into shape because i have been gaining a lot of weight recently.  I am 27 years old and over 200 pounds and im tall too but i keep gaining and i want to stop and lose weight before it gets too worse.  So i need the motivation to get this stuff going.

    • Although these diets are all great, the 3-week diet is the one I would recommend for you. It does a detox and cleanse and then teaches how to eat the right things from then on. After the diet, you just need to keep being smart and eat the way that is best for your body.

      I try to stick to this idea. “If it doesn’t have some nutritional value for your body, don’t eat or drink it”.

  5. Hi Curtis,

    Thank’s again for sharing a natural way of increasing testosterone while you lose weight and gain a healthy and fit life. I will definitely share this article to my husband, so he can check this article and to choose what diet plans he would love to take part with.

    Glenda

    • Thanks Glenda. These diets are for everyone, not just men. Helping men with low testosterone is my niche so that is why the title is what it is. We can all stand to lose some weight and any of these diets will accomplish that.

  6. I need to lose some weight, but as a female, could testosterone levels be an issue for me? Belly fat is definitely an issue, but I think that is very common for women who have had babies. I have heard though that you need to have some testosterone, even as a woman, in order to be healthy. Thoughts? Tips? Thanks!

    • Yes, women also have testosterone, just lower levels than men due to your estrogen levels. It is unlikely low testosterone is causing you any issues. Losing weight is always a good idea for all of us, regardless of our gender. If you need to lose weight and start eating the right way, I recommend the 3-week diet, because it provides a detox and cleansing along with the proper diet for you.
