Triple Your Testosterone Cheat Sheet by Tim Ferriss

Tim Ferriss is a writer, entrepreneur, public speaker and investor. He became famous after writing the book called The 4-hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (affiliate link) which was rejected by 26 publishers, but now since the 27th publisher decided to give it a go. It’s sold over 1,350,000 copies and has spent over 4 years on the New York Times bestseller list.

Because of the book being too straight forward key to success on average people, Ferriss has received a wide following of haters who despise his work.

However the work that Tim Ferriss has done is quite amazing. He has laid down the keys to escape the 9-5 rat race and seems to do it awesomely well himself.

However I’m not writing this post to talk about Tim’s success tutorials, as there’s also this other thing about Ferriss…

…He sports a total testosterone level of 1290 ng/dl, and in his book called The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, he has revealed us the secret key to his high testosterone:

The Triple Your Testosterone Cheat Sheet

This cheat sheet is a nice one pager with 2 straight forward protocols to boosting testosterone levels. However I don’t believe that this cheat sheet triples your testosterone, but still it will make a noticeable difference.

Protocol #1: Long Term and Sustained

Blue Ice Royal Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend: 2 Capsules upon waking and 2 capsules before bed.

Vitamin D: 3000 to 5000 IU upon waking and before bed (6000 to 10,000 IU per day) until your reach blood levels of 55ng/ml. Can test this at home if you like. Or just ask your doctor for this easy test.

Short ice baths and/or cold showers: 10 minutes each. Upon waking and right before bed.

Brazil nuts: 3 nuts upon waking up and 3 nuts before bed.

Protocol #2: Short Term and Fun “Nitro Boost”

20-24 hours prior to sex: Eat at least 800 milligrams of Cholesterol (for example four or more large whole eggs or egg yolks) within three hours before bedtime, the night before you want to have incredible sex. Why before bed? Testosterone is derived from Cholesterol, which is primarily produced during sleep (between midnight and 4-6 A.M.).

Four Hours Prior to Sex:

1. Four Brazil nuts
2. Twenty raw almonds
3. Two capsules of the Blue Ice Royal Butter Oil / Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend

If you are looking for a natural supplement to boost your testosterone, I would recommend TESTRO-X.

    I have read that more than two brazil nuts a day may be too much due to the fact that too much selenium can be toxic and actually decrease testosterone levels, is this true??

      That’s why its under “short term and fun nitro boost”. Otherwise Tim recommends only two brazil nuts a day for regular health maintenance

    I thought that vit d inhibits Melatonin? Having it before bed seems counter intuitive.

    What if you plan on having sex everyday? Bring on the eggs and nuts?

  4. […] Other from the fact that all nuts have a lot of arginine that boosts nitric oxide, Brazil nuts are jam packed with selenium. You just need to eat two to meet the RDA. A 100g contain 1,917 mcg’s of selenium. That is 2739% of the RDA. It also contains natural cholesterol that is converted into testosterone inside the Leydig cells. I eat 6 a day just to get a good dose of selenium… 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening. Check out Tim Ferriss’ blog about “triple your testosterone guide” […]

    Cold showers is stress, and probably a sauna accomplishes the same thing (for those of us who loathe cold in all its forms except a beer once in a while on a blistering summer day…)

  6. […] dietary recommendations which I expanded on with a little research (and re-reading the chapter on tripling testosterone in the 4-Hour Body). I want to emphasize here that most of the changes are related to changes in diet–I was […]

    Ferriss (Foot Note #15) says he took the Selenium because he was low on it.
    I am disappointed your website did not mention that.
