Stop Masturbating Part 2:
How diet and lifestyle changes will help

So far, we've covered the spiritual paradigm that will help you stop masturbating. Now, we'll shift to physical changes you can make that will make you more successful in your resolve.

One website I found about overcoming masturbation has been very paradigm shifting.

The author brings out that it is important to address emotional, mental and spiritual factors, but if you neglect the physical you are guaranteed to fail.

He gave the example of drinking a lot of water and trying to fight the urge to urinate. It doesn't make sense.

In the same way, you can't break the laws of physiology (treating your body like trash) and expect it to perform like an Olympic champion. Or in this case, you will not be able to stop masturbating unless you begin reforming your diet and lifestyle habits.

Willpower really comes from having neuron density in the prefrontal cortex of your brain. "It’s in that region that executive skills such as impulse control and judgment live" says Kelly McGonigal, author of the “The Willpower Instinct”. If you want to increase your level of willpower you must focus on the following areas.

Break Free From Your Masturbation Addiction

Proper sleep will help you stop masturbating

This is the most important of all the health related habits when you wish to stop masturbating.

When you sleep, amazing chemical processes begin in your body, but you won't reap as many benefits the later you go to sleep even if you sleep in longer.

Dr. Demitt, author of "The Promise of Sleep" and the world's leading authority on sleep science recommends going to bed at 9:00 pm at the latest. Your willpower is fueled by glucose and sleep deprivation ruins glucose metabolism.

Another reason an early bedtime is important is that we each have a fixed amount of willpower every day. We use that willpower every time we make decisions. If we've had a particularly taxing day where we made many decisions, our willpower may be depleted by early evening.

Going to sleep early is preferable to staying up late, as it allows us to replenish our willpower for the next day's challenges, rather than "running on empty" and making choices we regret later.

The following video shows how sleep affects the brain.

Proper Diet will help you stop masturbating

The following website offers many dietary suggestions for improving your willpower. Here is a brief summary:

  • Go vegan
  • Eat lots of carbs
  • Eat whole grain foods
  • Consume lots of fruits and vegetables
  • Avoid foods that are overly processed or contain chemical additives
  • Avoid eating garbage (junk food) if you want your body to perform at optimal levels

Instead of overcoming masturbation by focusing on the addiction, the author also says, "Don't try to fight masturbation. When you fight masturbation, you have to give it your attention and anything that has your attention has power over you...the best use of your energy is toward being healthy and not trying to resist being sick."

Your brain is your largest sex organ, not your penis or vagina.

The food you eat gets converted into blood and that blood feeds your brain. So you must choose a diet that will provide your brain with good quality blood. Here are the most important elements for good blood so your brain can make healthy daily decisions for overcoming masturbation.

Eat a simple diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Strive for nutrient density. If you don't understand nutrient density, just Google it and learn all you can. ·       

Don't eat highly seasoned, processed foods. They create a feverish condition in the system and inflame the animal passions and will make it more difficult for you to stop masturbating.

Don't eat meat or dairy. Eating dead food will result in a dead body.

"If you want to stop masturbating then stop eating anything with a penis or vagina" (www.howtostopmasturbation.com)

Stop eating refined sugars and foods with lots of oil. Again, these are not nutrient dense. They will not infuse your blood not with blessings but curses.

You will always find that gaining control over your appetite will enable you to gain control in other areas of your life.

Ever notice that Satan tempted both Eve and Jesus with appetite?

Drink lots of water to stop masturbating

Make it your goal to pee clear, not yellow. Your body is made up of 70% water. All of your organs need water to function properly. Like an engine stops working without oil, your brain stops working without water.

If you are wanting to make better long term choices in life, stop buying soda and start drinking water. If you think this sounds too simplistic, Google dehydration and cognitive performance.

Your attitude, energy level, mental clarity and willpower are dependent upon how much water you drink.

Exercise will help you to stop masturbating

Exercising releases good brain chemicals like endorphins and serotonin. The good feelings you get from exercise can be substituted for the good feelings you get from masturbating. That's why some people actually get addicted to exercising.

When you start doing the first three (sleep, good diet and water) you'll feel more like doing this last one.
