The Power of High Plant-Based Diets For Men
If you made it onto this page, I want to say "smart move!" Many of us grew up - myself included - on a high percentage of animal foods in our daily diet and so the idea of loading up on plants instead is extremely foreign. But the benefits for men are huge and they include greatly increased nitric oxide levels, blood flow and possibly even total testosterone. If you are skeptical, please read the top links below in bold and give the idea a chance - that's all I can ask. And feel free to ask me any questions on
My PeakT Twitter Account or The Peak Testosterone Forum.
NOTE: Strictly from a taste or preference standpoint, my favorite way to eat is lacto ovo vegetarian. However, I am currently completely plant-based, i.e. whole foods vegan, because I believe it is the best way to go from a sustainability standpoint. I've always been obsessed with leaving a better world for my kids and those to come, and I believe this is likely the only way to do it. To understand my reasoning, just watch Leanardo DiCaprio's new movie on Netflix called Cowspiracy. It's packed with impressive facts and shows why, as our population grows, that highly plant-based diets are the only viable option. If you disagree, I understand, but I'd ask that you please consider vegetarian and flexitarian (90+% plant, 10% animal) options as a healthy compromise.
