Higher Test Levels

Higher Test Levels

Does anyone know of any common foods which promote the production and increase natural testosterone levels?

A diet that is high carb, adequate fat and moderate protein maximizes testosterone vs. other options. There was a good thread with interesting links about this on Lyle McDonald’s board (http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/forums/) some time ago.

I take zinc supplements in addition to my normal vitamine tablettes. The zinc in normal vitamine supplements isn’t enough for the average guy.

If you want a higher testosterone level, just take “sarsaparillla root” that’s right, the stuff they used to make root beer with. One warning thought, don’t screw with your testosterone level unless you know what your doing, or you could have major problems.

Tongkat Ali is not a common food, I am already aware of it. Thanks though :)

A high carb diet will raise SHBG, so even if it does raise total testosterone, which I doubt very much (but will look at the link), it will lower free testosterone. Fat intake, on the other hand is good for testosterone.


I think it's the woman's job to tighten up to fit her man--it's lots easier for us.

Here’s my prescription:

- Squats, deadlifts and bench presses 2x a week
- Do cardio 2-3x a week
- Sleep 8 hours a night
- Eat a healthy diet with more emphasis on protein, veggies, complex carbs and omega-3 fatty acids
- Drink 3-4 liters of water per day
- Don’t smoke (cigs or pot)
- Vitamin and mineral supplement once a day
- Have sex often (preferably with a new girl every few months)

I think I will start following this advice. :D

Then, BPEL:7.500"x5.500"

Now, BPEL:8.375"X6.750"

Yes, under normal circumstances the body does a pretty good job of adjusting.

Something not mentioned yet is the importance of eating enough calories. Starve yourself and T will plummet. Getting hammered on booze knocks T way down too.

Another consideration on the dietary front is not being way too fat. Don’t eat so much that you get too porky. Lots of fat -> lots of aromatization -> more estrogen, which is a negative feedback on testosterone production.

I doubt the specific foods eaten make all that much difference. There are exceptions. I wouldn’t live on soy or munch on hops.

Here is a two-part article about macronutrient ratios and testosterone:

Quote from toward the end:

Designing A Diet to Maximize Testosterone Levels

Remember, it is the bioactive fraction of total T that is important. This fraction consists of fT and albumin-bound T. Fasting suppresses T production and small amounts of either PRO or CHO do not reverse the suppression. Diets with a PRO intake greater than the CHO intake lower total T levels, and may actually decrease the bioactivity of T in the body. Higher CHO diets (70% or more from CHOs) may increase T levels, but they also affect the metabolism of T as well. While the role of fat is not entirely clear, saturated fat and cholesterol are closely linked to higher levels of T and PUFAs have some modifying role.

So, what is the best type of diet to follow if your only concern is to increase T levels and make more of it available to the body for the purpose of improving lean body mass and/or performance? It would seem that CHO intake must exceed PRO intake by at least 40% to keep the bioactive fraction of T high. Fat intake should be at least 30%, saturated fat needs to be higher than PUFA, and fiber intake needs to be low. A sample diet would have roughly the following calorie breakdown: 55% CHO, 15% PRO and 30% fat.

I’m not buying the carbs. Maybe it’s different for girls. I need to do more research on this.

Be careful with zinc supplements. Zinc in excess from supplementation can interfere with copper absorption and lower the immune system while imparing blood cell formation. Also, it can decrease HDL cholesterol which puts you more at risk for heart disease. You can get plenty of zinc in a good diet (beans, lean meats, etc.)

UNSATURATED fats are best to help testosterone and for shoring up a good circulation. Eat plenty of nuts and good protein like chicken or tuna. Cook with olive oil. Carbs are needed for energy, but eat complex carbs like whole wheat products so that your insulin levels stay in check.

Most importantly to boost natural testosterone is weight bearing exercise. Building muscle mass causes an increase in testosterone. It is not quite that simple, but eating a good diet and exercising is about the best prescription for any problem a person has. Of course, there are a lot of theories out there, but I just felt like giving mine.

I wouldn’t do deadlifts twice a week.

Sat fats are best for test. Diets low in total fat or high in “good” fat lower test.
