There’re many reasons why you should want your groom to have an optimal level of the hormone testosterone, such as:
- Happier moods.
- Decreases body fat.
- Increases muscle mass.
- Stronger bones.
- Increases libido and improves erections.
Research shows some other possible benefits such as decreasing risk of Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease and improving cognitive ability.
I’m sure you agree that the benefits above have a significant positive impact on a Bride Fit Relationship. In my on-line coaching program for Exceptional Brides, I discuss many factors that affect living ‘happily & healthily ever after.’ How you feel is directly connected to the food you eat because what we eat greatly influences our health. In one of my favorite diet books, The Perfect 10 Diet, author Dr. Michael Aziz discusses in detail that the key to weight loss and thriving in your health is balancing your hormones. Testosterone is one of them and has more functions than supporting muscle growth.
Unfortunately it is common to have health issues connected to hormone imbalance because of a mismatch between our current lifestyle and the way our bodies are designed. The invasion of fake food combined the negative side effects of social media and technology has wreaked havoc on our hormones that affect our moods, energy and ability to release fat. Obviously when we feel fat, sick and tired it impacts relationships in a negative way.
Mainly associated with men, it may surprise you to learn that women produce testosterone as well, although at a substantially lower production than men so by optimizing this hormone you will not end up looking like a body builder with large muscles, which is actually impossible unless you are injecting the hormone in your body or taking steroids! Testosterone is very good for the female body and is needed to produce the toned & tight Bride Fit arms you desire! Here’re some benefits for brides that have optimal levels of testosterone:
- Turns fat to muscle, toned body and supple skin.
- Positive moods and increased ability to handle stress.
- Maintains muscle and bone mass.
- Powerful anti-aging effects.
- Increased sex drive and satisfaction.
What can we do to naturally balance and optimize testosterone?
- Eat whole foods and eliminate or greatly reduce refined carbohydrates such as cereals, bagels, pretzels, pasta and crackers. Eating grass-fed beef, shellfish, oysters, and egg yolks can help boost low testosterone.
- High intensity interval training (HIIT) and strength training is the best type of exercise to burn fat and increase testosterone.
- Vitamin D. Low vitamin D levels are a big cause for many health issues and related to low testosterone also. If you don’t know what your vitamin D level is, ask your doctor to test. Falling somewhere between 40-80 ng/mL on your blood work labs is ideal. If you are lower than 40 consider extra supplementation to get your levels up. Low vitamin D has negative side effects such as fatigue and depression, so ensuring your level is good is really important.
- Reduce stress. Self-care, pleasure activities, and meditation help manage stress that will wreak havoc on your hormones.
There are many layers to getting Bride Fit such as eating real food, exercising, getting enough quality sleep, and fostering healthy relationships. The results of positive shifts in nutrition and lifestyle habits will have a domino effect and it will all fall into place; hormone balance, fat release and more energy! Creating habits that support getting Bride Fit will result in sustainable results and living ‘happier & healthier ever after’ with your partner.
