Some food increases your testosterone production, whereas others inhibit it. This is of special concern to all males as they get older. During your 20s, you produce the optimal amount of test. Then, starting around age 30, your production decreases approximately 1% per year. A man at age 40 has 10% less test output. At age 50, 20% less.
The idea of this post (and I’ve tried it, it definitely works … and I’m 44 years old!) is to adjust your diet to foods that will help you maintain your optimal amount of testosterone, even beyond your max experienced during your 20s. While this post is about nutrition, it is important to remember that other factors (such as sleep) will also adjust your T levels in a favorable, or unfavorable manner (hint, every hour your sleep beyond 4 hours gives you an additional 15% boost in test, up to 8 hours).
What foods will help you adjust your diet for maximum amount of testosterone? Lets get started below!
First, let me fight the negative rap “mainstream” nutritionalists have been trying to lay on eggs for quite some time. No, eggs won’t raise your cholesterol. Even the US government (Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee) has changed its mind, coming to different conclusions last February (2015) than it had found 5 years earlier.
Eggs are not bad for you.
The group’s finding that cholesterol in the diet need no longer be considered a “nutrient of concern” stands in contrast to the committee’s findings five years ago, the last time it convened. During those proceedings, as in previous years, the panel deemed the issue of excess cholesterol in the American diet a public health concern.
There’s a plethora of information on the internet about how eggs are no longer considered bad for you, in regards to cholesterol. Many people respect Jillian Michaels as a health and wellness expert. She blames high cholesterol on saturated and trans fats, not on dietary cholesterol.
My advice is that you can eat as many eggs as you want to eat, keeping in mind that too much of anything isn’t good for you. I often enjoy four to six eggs on some days (not every day).
Eggs Increase Testosterone
Eggs are great for a number of reasons. They are easy, nutrition-packed protein for bodybuilders. They’re considered the perfect food by many. And here’s another reason to think so: eating eggs increases your T-levels.
Studies show that consuming fat, and dietary cholesterol as found in eggs (remember, not the same thing as the bad cholesterol found to clog arteries), increases testosterone production.
On the flip side, another study shows that eating a low fat diet results in low testosterone.
