So what is it that attracts a woman to a man physically?
I wish I could give you a straight-forward answer but it’s not so clear in reality.
In fact, there are a lot of things can make you appear physically attractive to girls.
It may be your beautiful face she’s drawn into.
It may be your height.
Or it may be your muscular body she finds attractive.
It’s a combination of all these different factors that turn the switch on in her brain and trigger attraction toward you.
Your physical attractiveness is not just limited to the genetics you are dealt with, however.
The way you smile… the way you walk… the way you look at her…
These all give her the “illusion” of you being more attractive than you actually are (even if you are not exactly blessed with the best genetics…).
And girls do not all share the same preference for what they find physically attractive in a guy either.
I’m sure you’ve seen a beautiful girl with a very muscular dude… or a very good looking dude… or a tall dude.
Knowing this, it only makes sense for you to focus on improving things that you can actually change.
And the truth is there is not much you can do to change the face you are born with or grow taller once you are past puberty.
You can, however, build more muscle and increase your physical attractiveness that way.
For this reason, I want to spend the next portion of my article giving you the best diet advice for you to get into that warrior shape so you can effortlessly turn her on with your chiseled body.
So, let’s get started with the best diet advice I can think of going from morbidly obese most of my life to achieving a pretty frigging respectable physique.
I won’t go into the whole story about all the struggles I endured as a fatty because I did plenty of that in my other articles.
So, how the heck did I go from 240lb pure fat to dropping down all the way to 160lb and attaining a pretty decently low bodyfat at a weight of around 200lb?
Instead of citing all the millions of studies on fat loss which you can easily google (and there’s pretty much zero definitive answers in the world of nutrition in case you didn’t know..), I’ll tell you exactly what I did to achieve that.
When I first decided to lose weight and started doing research about a decade ago, I heard it was all about calories in and calories out if you want to lose weight. It made perfect sense to me at the time. What goes in, must come out right?
So, I bought an electronic scale to weigh all my food and measure all the calories. It was a big headache in the beginning. But as with anything, I’ve gotten used to it after a week or so and it eventually became second nature.
I picked a reasonable amount of calories that I believed I should eat to lose weight which was around 2500 calories. I’d then reassess each week on if I should up or lower my calories based on my weight loss progress.
If my memory serves me correctly, my weight went from around 240lb to around 185~190lb just by sticking with 2500 calories in a matter of a few months.
Once I was at around 185lb, however, my weight loss started stalling so I kept reducing calories.
Eventually, I got to 700 calories per day for my last two weeks of cut at a bodyweight of 158lb at 5’11.
Just so you know, I would not recommend this to anyone…
I had no energy throughout the day during this weight loss.
And I was also binge-eating once every two weeks easily consuming close to 7000~8000 calories in a day. So, it definitely wasn’t exactly the smartest approach to losing weight.
But I was willing to try whatever and find out for myself how my body responds.
I did learn, however, that reducing calories do work (to a certain extent) for burning fat.
The second time I decided to lose weight, I weighed around 210lb with a decent amount of muscle mass as well as fat.
I did my usual approach to reducing calories and dropped my weight down to around 200lb.
Around that time, I noticed eating a lot of carbohydrates like rice and pasta made me feel drowsy during the day so I decided to experiment with cutting out carbohydrates from my diet.
This wasn’t intended for weight loss purpose but rather for better mental clarity.
And to my surprise, I started losing weight at a much faster rate despite eating the same amount of calories.
I know some people might say it’s from that initial loss of water weight (Because carbohydrates cause water retention). But I kept losing weight at a much faster rate than I was even after a month… to the point I decided to up my calories all the way up to 3000.
I was weighing around 190lb at this point and because I wasn’t on a severely calorically limited diet, I had more energy throughout the day.
I was able to push harder in the gym and I even gained strength while losing weight.
I believe I was squatting around 470lb at a bodyweight of 185lb or so during this time which isn’t too bad.
So far, It may almost sound like I’m promoting high-fat diet but that isn’t really the case.
High fat (or Keto) diet wasn’t even mainstream back in those days so I simply stumbled upon it by accident and saw some incredible results with it.
So the lesson I learned from this cut is that maybe… just maybe… it’s not simply all calories in and calories out for weight loss as some experts would say.
The third time I decided to lose weight was pretty recent actually. I came across the book called “obesity code” written by Dr. Jason Fung.
There’s a lot of frigging good info in the book but one thing that caught my attention is the benefit of fasting.
I’ve done some half-assed intermittent fasting in the past but didn’t give it a proper chance to see how my body would respond to it.
So I decided I would experiment with eating one big meal a day versus of several small meals a day to observe how my body responds.
And It was by far the best decision I’ve ever made.
I had much better mental clarity throughout the day even compared to when I was on no carb diet. I even performed better at the gym which is surprising considering I’d hit the gym on an empty stomach after 15-18 hour fast.
I watched GSP – a former UFC champion and the guy also worked with Dr. Jason Fung – on Joe Rogan’s podcast and he was talking about how he feels more energized than ever training after a long extended fast. So I would assume it’s not an uncommon benefit among people who fast.
Anyway, what is the main point I want to make from all this?
Most people form a conclusion based on one or two research paper they read and they block off all the other ideas.
And this is what ultimately limits their growth and potential. If I had just decided it’s all about calories and nothing else matters then I wouldn’t have found other ways that are more efficient.
Don’t just accept what other people tell you as absolute truth no matter how convincing it may sound.
Even if it worked for them, it does not necessarily mean it’s going to work for you. Always be willing to test it for yourself and see how you respond. Find it out for yourself.
So what plan should you follow if you are trying to build that physique of Greek God and have women swoon over you?
Here’s my advice.
Focus on ONE variable at a time.
For example, just pick whatever calories that you think is reasonable for your bodyweight to lose fat – whether it be 2000 or 2500 calories – and track your progress.
Once you stop noticing the benefit, play with another variable like cutting out carbohydrates and increasing fat.
When you hit a plateau then start playing around with other variables like eating one meal a day as opposed to six meals a day.
The goal is to discover the most optimal approach for yourself.
I know a lot of people love hearing cookie-cutter advice like “Eat 3 meals a day at 2000 calories and reduce calories by 300 calories when you stop losing weight and make sure to drink a gallon of water a day”.
And they think to themselves, “Finally, someone who doesn’t give BS advice and cut straight to the point, I love your advice”.
If you are one of those people, it just means you are stupid as eff who can’t think for yourself.
Nothing in life is black and white.
Someone can guide you toward the right direction but it is ultimately up to you to take control of your life.
