Men Don't Diet, Men Refuel!

Healthy Eating Meal Plan for Men. Why Risk Low T?

Dr La Puma’s 24-Day Healthy Eating Meal Plan for Men to Shed Fat, Boost Testosterone & Pump Up Strength and Stamina: A Natural Approach to Boost Low T! Men Don’t Diet, Men Refuel!

REFUEL is a new, scientifically sound, simple approach for men who want to boost testosterone, shed fat and supercharge energy, sexual stamina and strength, naturally.  Fight Low T no matter what your age. REFUEL now.

And for women looking to help a man– husband, boyfriend, father, brother, co-worker, friend– this is the insider’s guide you need now.

Hunger is a biological urge, hunting for food is primal, and eating sustains life. Men eat what they find in the environment.

Prehistoric men found foods like meats, fish, roots, and berries.

Today’s men find Big Macs, double-stuffed Oreos, chili cheese fries, fried chicken—and whatever’s in the fridge at eye level.

No wonder you’re overweight. You’ve been drugged by overprocessed food and gender bending chemicals.

REFUEL recommends a healthy eating meal plan with lower carb/near fasting days (intermittent fasting) that can change this.

It is a pioneer in the intermittent fasting/culinary medicine movement!

REFUEL gives you a 24 day, scientifically sound, 3 phase eating program specifically engineered for and tested in men–it fights low T, boosts testosterone, rebuilds stamina and tastes awesome.

Surprisingly efficient, very short exercises can build muscle and confidence and testosterone. As seen in Men’s Health Magazine.

Ordinary every day plastics and chemicals can depress fertility, sperm count and sexual performance.
