Buff Dad is the first program tailored with dads in mind. Mike Levinson gives men a four-week game plan to get it done. The secret is testosterone, a key fuel that boosts your body's ability to lose weight and build muscle naturally. Levinson is a trainer of professional athletes and a registered dietitian. He brings together both disciplines for an efficient program that helps dads to slim down and shape up.


The Buff Dad program shows you how to incorporate testosterone "powerfoods" into your meals to help you take the weight off. By combining this tasty and realistic nutritional plan with the Buff Dad Workout Blitz, you will be on your way to being the Buff Dad you want to be. Levinson knows the time constraints that accompany a child. He doesn't expect anyone to find two hours a day to work out at the gym.

How to Get It: Baked beans, lima beans, navy beans, and kidney beans are all good choices. Canned versions are just as nutritious as dry.

3. Poultry

What's Inside: Protein and little fat.

The Facts: "High-protein diets have a positive impact on muscle mass and thus testosterone levels," says ...    Continue
