i think i know where hes going with that question...ALL hormones in the body come from cholesterol...maybe eating 5-10 whole eggs a day with some divanil may help...hope this helps

yeah, i'm a little surprised your doctor would test your hormone levels with you feeling normal, and not test your cholesterol. But if your cholesterol is much under 150, it could affect your testosterone level

he didnt check my cholesterol because 3 months ago it was 140..i was just wondering what my test levels were..i was thinking i was in the 600-700 range cuz how good i feel..and when they told me i was 197. i couldnt believe it...

hmm yeah, well 140 is on the low side, below normal. have you been eating even less fats in the last couple months? i'd suggest getting some coconut oil and taking a tablespoon of that evenings before bed

I second the eggs suggestion. Granted, I am 18, and am pretty much made out of pure testosterone right now, but I started eating 4 whole eggs and 8 egg whites a day about 2 months ago (intense, i know) and I have been feeling CRAZY ALPHA lately. Yeah, I know, that's totally anecdotal, but I have never felt quite like this. It's a definite difference from a few months ago. If you just added 2 whole eggs a day I'm willing to bet you'd notice a difference in a short amount of time. Toss in some coconut oil at night, and you're good to go. I hope that helps.

i been going over my diet. i now know i dont get much zinc or fatty foods. im gonna up my zinc to about 50mg aday for a few months,and start eating 2-3 eggs every morning...what does coconut oil taste like??

tastes like coconut its great all around I use it for pan frying as well as straight drinking, use it instead of vegetable oil in recipes, etc. just has to be slightly warm to be liquid
