Ladies and gentlemen, stop right here and give me a minute of your time. What I’m about to tell you may seem hard to believe. In fact, it may even seem impossible. But I promise you that it’s not. It’s very possible. I’ve seen it with my very own eyes. So have others.
Let me show you how I can:
- Make your testosterone levels jump 15%, returning you to the vigor of your high school glory days.
- Drop your cortisol levels so fast it won’t have time to deposit any unsightly fat on your stomach or eat away at your precious biceps.
- Give you the strength of a young stallion instantly, and by instantly, I mean your very next workout.
- Strengthen your willpower so much that cravings will be a thing of the past.
- Speed up your metabolism so much you’ll never have to worry about your waistline again.
Sounds too good to be true. Right? Sounds like a pitch from a snake oil salesman. Right?
You’re right. No such product exists. And if it did, everyone would be on it.
However, there is something that can do the opposite of everything mentioned above. And it’s not just “something”, it’ something you and I both do quite often. In fact, it’s probably something we’ve done in the past week.
What is this poison you ask?
Sleep. More specifically, the lack of.
And by lack of, I’m not talking something as severe as 24+ hours of sleep deprivation. I’m talking about something as simple and common as getting just 5 hours of sleep a night.
That’s all it takes to:
- Decrease your testosterone by 15%.
- Increase your cortisol levels.
- Decrease your strength and performance in the gym instantly.
- Make you crave fatty, sugary foods.
- Slow your metabolism down
But I’ve never needed much sleep. I’ve always only slept 5 or 6 hours a night.
Let me guess, you also consume 3 or 4 cups of coffee in the morning, drink 5-6 cans of Mt. Dew throughout the day, and eat a Snickers when you start getting tired.
It’s not that you don’t need that much sleep. You do. You’ve just been using caffeine and sugar as a crutch. As a result, your waistline has slowly been expanding, your blood pressure and blood sugar levels have been creeping up, and your energy has slowly dwindled down. Up until now, it’s been a mystery….
So, before you start your diet, before you start exercising, and before you start testosterone replacement therapy, make sure you’re sleeping 7-9 hours per night. If you do that, losing weight becomes so, so much easier.
