    From what I have read:

    Oysters, steak, salmon, eggs, broccoli, pumpkin, bananas, avocados...

    They say "think zinc" and also to eat healthy fats.

    i just read that the amount that food, any food, can increase your own testosterone is very, very, very minimal. so much to the point that you shouldnt worry about it and just go by other means to boosting your test. with food your essentially wasting your time

    Eggs, olive oil, and coconut oil or anything that contains cholesterol.

    Follow the top left hand corner of cholesterol, to the right hand side.

    Its true that it can be minimal.

    Unless a person goes on a high fat intake diet. Usually ingesting high amounts of meat and fat for fuel, instead of the conventional carb as fuel.

    nah, thats why i looked into it, i was taking in lost of fats from steaks, whole mild, eggs etc. so i decided to really look into it. id advoacte just getting in the protien carbs and fats you need and go by other means to boosting your test. food will NOT raise it to any level where it will make a difference on muscle building.

    ok so your telling me that we live in a world where man can increase testosterone by eating a steak, drinking a glass of milk, or even just adding a packet of sweetener to your tea? if this were true we all would simply swallow our ways to better bodies without the use of supplementation or steroids.

    there are very few naturally occuring simple molecules that can change a persons phsiology, mood, or preformance. if you believe food can significantly boost test then eat up, but there would be no need for supplementation or use of steriods if this were true.

    All are good suggestions, also try not to cram too much carbs at once due to lipid issues, other than that all these are great suggestions.

    +1000

    The only way that food will make a significant improvement in test is if your diet is garbage to begin with. Micromanage if you want but don't expect miracles. In fact, attempts to optimize one variable will likely lead to decreases in others...

    If you dont have a fats in your diets, you test will most likely suffer dramatically.

    If you already getting tons of fat, then adding steak or eggs wont really boost your test much further.

    Many steriods made in the human body are derived from cholesterol, which is the molecule than is a prohormone, you could say to testosterone, however, it takes so many steps, you could not say its really a prohormone.

    The real question is which fats are the best for your general health but also can maintain healthy testosterone levels.

    Besides steak and eggs have other nutrients, Vitamin B, Arichindonic Acid that would also be beneficial to muscle building.

    I doubt any foods will raise your test levels enough for muscle building on a bodybuilding scale.
    Mainly because all that extra mass isnt the most natural or efficient state of the body.
    Eating clean will keep your test more balanced and higher than those who eat junk food all the time though.
    Erectile dysfunction, has low testosterone as a factor, along with high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health problems associated with bad diets.
    So all the suggestions made by those above were very good ones.

    But supplementation is the only way to gain that extra boost to get the body you want.
    That is why I chuckle when women ask me if they workout will they automatically look like they are on roids. Because unless their natural test levels are really high they are just going to get toned. And nothing is sexier than a toned woman with flat abs or a six pack.

    Although I am still trying to find scientific evidence that supports this, I have read that goji berries naturally increase test. Also, they contain polysaccharrides, specifically LBP 1, 2, 3 and 4 which act as powerful secretagogues for hgh production.
    And even if they don't, they are a damn nutritional Berry worth eating anyways.

    I just read that post. It seems really interesting. The only problem is, have you ever had onion juice? That sh!t burns all the way down to your stomach and makes you feel like you want to vomit. Plus the article never states what kind of onions were used. I know that their are a lot of different varieties of onions out their, which one was used? But def a very interesting article.

    I agree with what you've said Ricky, there's no way we can boost testosterone levels to a significant point through food. If we think that way, Inuit people would have the highest testosterone levels in the whole human race, since the ones that still live from what nature gives to them eat a high protein and high fat diet, and these fat are mainly cholestrol and fish oil. On the other side, there's people from Asia that eat a soy rich diet that is said to low testosterone, wich by the way isn't true from own experience (I've done a blood test with total testosterone, progestin, estrogen and other hormones and my estrogen was on the mid levels and the test was 757,5ng/dl in a scale where 800ng/dl is the maximum for an adult male), so from there we can see the "power" of food in ours hormone profiles

    I've never had it - and they said it was your basic garden onion. I'd use a white onion. I would just focus on eating one per day if you really wanted to see if this had any benefit. Be prepared for bad breath!

    Some foods contain a natural estrogen. Eating healthy will maximize your test levels. It wont give you steroid like test levels but eating healthy will give you optimal test levels while off a cycle. This will help you keep your gains.

    Zinc deficiency can lead to low testosterone levels, so I think a multivitamin is important for this reason.

    Foods that are claimed to be high in zinc such as eggs, well, 100g of eggs only contains 1.3mg of zinc.
