Low kcal shuts down bodily functions, increases stress hormones, and WILL produce ED

It shuts down morning wood as you are living under a cocktail of stress chemicals.

2:1 carbs to protein ratio and ensure youre getting enough kcal.

Your cock will return to optimal hardness.

Whats your diet like?

This is false, my dick was measured at 8 inches right on the dot when I was in 5th grade. Since then after using a lot of uppers (stimulants) during my party years I have had trouble even getting it to 7 inches, it usually hovers around 6-6,1/2 inches while being at maybe 70% hardness.

When I was doing OMAD and really limiting my calories, I would get unbelievably horny, I decided to measure it, and my dick finally went past the 7 inch mark which hasn't happened in years. Leading up to the measurements in the days, weeks, etc months prior, as my body fat was going down rapidly, I would walk around the city worried about my boner being visible all the time because I was that horny.

It's not false.

It's context dependent.

I would retract my earlier statement in light of this, so thank you for your comment.

OMAD and kcal restriction can probably help sex drive and function, if they're getting the body into ketosis, producing some autophagy, and reducing stress hormones.

That's context specific to OMAD and the impacts it has on the organism.

Calorie restriction in a manner which isn't ketotic and supportive of biogenesis, will likely elevate stress hormones and produce ED.

As ever, context matters.

For clarity, I don't actually agree with all of this anymore.

Downregulating stresshormones part I was right about.

The carbs, I was not.

ED I think is driven by a loss of redox potential in the body, as the body loses power/charge, its functions begin to switch off.

I'd advise something else now: rebuilding function through wellnesss.

Maybe you should clarify some simple things cause this is pretty confusing honestly.

Are you having issues getting and staying hard during real life sex exclusively? Or when you jack off and / or watch porn as well?

Like can you at least get hard and have a orgasm when you are all by yourself, with porn?

Or is even that a challenge?

Of course I meant that it's false for myself.

I think a reasonable thing to say would be: everyones body is different, and there are too many factors (outside of diet alone) that would indicate what would be the perfect diet for someones sexual life, how many calories they should consume, etc.

Basically it's up to each person to find out what works for them.

The dietary stuff is interesting guys. Last year I screwed around with diets and supplements but nothing helped. I tried going keto, vegan and OMAD. Though it didn't work before I'm still open to trying out new diets to see if anything works.

I try and cram all the relevant info into my posts since I don't want to miss anything but now I see that ends up being a bit incoherent.

Bar a few exceptions I don't get hard from anything but strong and constant stimulation. The second the stimulation stops it starts deflating like a cartoon balloon. I can manage to have sex like this, but its not fun and its not guaranteed. I've let a few girls down. I can take 100mgs of V and that'll stop it deflating, but it can be hit and miss. There's no difference between porn and real life sex, it won't get me hard unless I really go to town on my dick.

The exceptions are that lately I've been getting maybe 70% morning wood most days. I've also had a couple experiences the last two years where out of the blue I got hard without pills, but those are super rare.

Hope any of this helps. I know how frustrating this shit can be to deal with so I'd wanted to give a proper reply.
Cheers for the response. I've had the issue for 6 years now so I've been through most of what you've suggested. The majority of the sex I've had has been with pills. These days I just do foreplay on the first date and count my dick out. I tried a lot of supplements and dietary changes but they didn't really help, although I haven't yet tried Arginine. Maybe I should though as even if it doesn't help my ED it might be good for bodybuilding.

The thing about the porn stuff is that was actually the first thing I tried. The way this started was I tried to have sex for the first time and suddenly my dick was completely dead, no matter what, with and without porn (though strangely I still got morning wood). Previously my dick had a hair trigger for getting hard, so I was totally caught off guard and quite a bit worried. I frantically searched the web for answers and immediately came across no fap and YBOP. The shock of suddenly having a dead dick overnight, the feeling of constantly letting this girl down, and also the fact my sex drive was pretty crushed from it anyway meant that it was easy to keep off porn for about 6 months.

But after 6 months with no results eventually I figured the porn explanation doesn't apply to me. I don't fit the profile anyway. My ED was suddenly triggered by trying to have sex with a woman, not a gradual buildup of the effects of porn. It's not like real sex isn't "measuring up" to porn or something as porn doesn't get me hard since that day either. How can porn use explain my dick dying overnight? Despite having ED I still get horny and so for a while this year I was settled into beating off to porn (still with ED) maybe about once a week. I find nudes from my partners can be tempting and recently I've used those more often than actual internet porn. Over the years I did revisit the porn explanation, and I tried brief stints of cutting it out again. I browsed the YBOP testimonials to try and see if anyone there fits my profile to give me a bit of hope that maybe I just needed to do 9 months or something and suddenly everything would come good. But ultimately skepticism would get the better of me and I'd go back to my once a week habit.

I don't write this to try and justify watching porn though, just to provide context to my situation. I'd rather keep off porn even if it doesn't fix my ED for other reasons. I'm trying to clear up a chronic rash under my foreskin which involves taping it back daily and this gets in the way of beating it (to porn and in general) so maybe this little barrier will give me the push to finally get rid of it. Although I really do enjoy getting nudes from my partners so maybe I can make an exception for that so long as it's rare enough and I don't masturbate.

Hey bro sounds to me like your issue might be more hormonal related. Seems like from the actions you’ve taken it’s not porn and you’ve had enough time to mentally get over the initial bad experiences, so probably not too much mental.

There’s alot of things hormone wise that could be the issue:

- Total testosterone might be low
- High SHBG might be making your free testosterone low
- Estrogen could be too high
- Prolactin could be too high
- DHT might be low
- Cortisol could be high

Or it might be some combination of these things. I would recommend getting your bloods done and testing for these mentioned. Thryoid (TSH) and Growth Hormone (iGF-1) can also play a role so it’s probably worth testing but those mentioned above are the important ones for libido and ED.

So when I first went to the doctors for ED back in Jan 2021, they made me do a blood test. It was more comprehensive than this actually, but I've lost the other results except for the serum androgens seciton. Here it is:

Code: Select all

SERUM ANDROGENS
Total Testosterone (Siemens) 19 nmol/L (8.3-29)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin 30 nmol/L (11-71)
DHEAS 7.4 umol/L (3.0-10)
Androstenedione 6.9 nmol/L (2.1-11)
Calculated Free Testosterone 418.2 pmol/L (255.0-725.0)
I passed these results on to number of different doctors I turned to for ED help, and all of them said they were fine. Although maybe I need a second opinion or maybe there's a hormone they didn't test for.

I think I'll go try and get blood work done here in Germany soon and see if they can pick up anything. It's a bit annoying as here they're probably gonna charge me a lot for it whereas in Australia it was free, but I have to do something. It's starting to get ridiculous as I've now spent the majority of my 20s without a working dick.

EXACTLY

Hormones in isolation means nothing.

This is why functional testing and whatnot is so limited, because guys have leaks in their bucket, and until you fix those leaks, nothing you put into the system will help.

Bro, I walked this path for 11 months with ED. I am happy to help you, but how open are you to alternative practices?

In particular, ice baths.....earthing, sunrise watching.

My opinion on this is different from guys like Andy, who whilst extremely knowledgeable, and a world-class coach, and someone I respect immensely, I have a difference of opinion on ED. I think it's physiology first, then psychology. Andy is still THE MAN and has achieved more transformations and successes with guys than I think many will ever - hell, I am a student of Andy's myself and he is my mentor.

I can explain in depth and I am very happy to help you. If you'd be a test subject for me, if I can help you get your function back, I would then like to make a guide to fixing ED for KYIL so I can help guys with their wellness. A guide or sticky post or something would be great so dudes can just get the help they need and not suffer.

I think I can help you fix this, I help guys from the forum with wellness for free (I never charge anything, ever) as it's a hobby for me. I will only help a guy who is serious and will be open minded to my ideas hence why I have waited before offering.

Your call boss....help is here if you feel called.

You didn't fully answer my question. I asked if you sit down and jack off to porn by yourself, can you get fully hard and have a orgasm?

It matters cause then it means you are a physiologically capable of getting hard and having a orgasm.

But honestly dude, even for me, someone who studies this subject with obsession all the time, this issue is strange to me and I don't have a full answer for you.

Normally I'd say just go full no PMO for 6 months and see what happens, but seems like maybe even that is not enough to restore or improve function in your case?

If not then something is seriously wrong although if it's really that bad, you should have a log up here where you do everything in your power to get to the bottom of it, cause that is seriously fucked man. And it should be your #1 priority to get a handle on it, if it's really that bad.

You should check everything out. Testosterone, hormones, everything.

It's strange to me you would be this seriously dysfunctional just off pure psychology, especially if you are full no PMO. But it's possible I guess? i don't know.

And it's even more strange if you have normal / functional dopamine and testosterone and etc. I've never actually heard of anyone who has this problem to this degree.

If it's really that bad though then make a log and do everything you can to get to the bottom of it. You aren't going to go far with anything if you can't even physiologically have sex.

Personally by the way, I'd figure I have probably (potentially?) had worse ED and sexual dysfunction in the past than anyone else on this forum, which I've fixed now. Aside maybe from you.

I just had some mind blowing sex in fact. But it took me alot of years.

And I was always at least able to jack off and cum with porn, it was just when I started fucking real girls or needing to get rock hard and cum in tough situations right after meeting some strange random girl, that problems came up.

I always had a great time whacking off to porn though. Especially when I learned to mix it with certain drugs. Sometimes I'd jack off around 16 times a day in fact.

So I'm not sure my experience or knowledge is applicable to your particular situation. It is still most likely fixable though, you just need to start being alot more serious about it, if it is in fact this bad.
