    i swear every time I eat meat or fast food I get lots of urges out of no where? Is this just me? I am thinking of cutting meat out of my diet for a week and see how it goes. What’s your experience with this?

  2. Everyone is different. I think it's a good idea to try to quit eating meat and fast food and see if it helps.

    Meat is an important source of zinc, a mineral known for its aphrodisiac effects. Oysters are the most notorious potency enhancing food in this regard.

    Your zinc status may be making you sensitive to its effects on your system, depending on how high or low your levels are. Of course this is just speculation, but likely. As zinc is a super important mineral, mediating lots of metabolic processes in your body, and mainly provided through meat in the diet, cutting it out all together probably isn't the best idea. Mankind has been consuming meat for thousands of years. It's the number one source of protein, and unlike many other foods, not particularly hard on the digestive system.

    Apart from zinc, meat also provides some important B-vitamins that are used in the synthesis of neurotransmitters (like dopamine).

    I don't think you have to deprive yourself of the many nutrients found in meat, but you should above anything else train your mind. An urge starts in the mind and should end in the mind. If you want to truly conquer pmo addiction, you should acknowledge that the body is never to blame for a habit. Some nutrients may 'tickle' your senses, but don't really cause anything close to hypofrontality, the way alcohol or drugs do. There could be some truth to what you are describing, but it's also likely that a preconception is amplifying these beliefs. There's a lot of controversy on the topic involving meat, with some people even claiming that meat consumption is responsible for climate change, but meat is not your real enemy. People have been consuming meat for thousands of years and without it, some people may not even have survived. So unless you are allergic or anything, it's probably best to either moderate your intake, or to cut it out of your diet for a short period of time to see how you react. If in that case you still have urges, you'll know it's not the meat that is to blame.

    Hope it helps and good luck

    So i dont know about others but there is a link meat has tryptophan which is precursor of dopamine so eating meat in large quantities will give you a high like pmoing once does and then u will get a chaser effect like actual fap does. Sorry to use the f word here but its serious that u know that meat can lead to relapses so either quit or eat meat less in quantity.

    It's all in your head.
    The same thing about all those people who say that they want to fap whenever they get drunk

    No man its not all in your head thing its real fact that meat increases serotonin which makes u feel good and meat preparation matters too between boiled and fried. Fried is junk. U will find many who having good reboot history agree with me.

    I also felt the same. After eating non veg, I get strong urges and feel a lesser hold on my self discipline. I started edging but I stopped myself at once.

    It much simpler than you think .

    More energy, more desire to procreate .
    If you fast, your body is in ''dying '' mode .
    If you eat, it is in procreating mode .

    Yea it noticed the same so I stopped going to Macdonalds. Also another thing that raises your urges is red ginseng! It has many health benefits but man does that turn you into a sexual animal!

    Indeed. I don't see why having a healthy libido is a bad thing.

    Become vegan (essentially malnutrition) to become castrated? Why?
