30 Bananas a Day!

My testosterone is on the lower side of the reference spectrum. Which, apparently, is not a particularly good thing. Normally they would say "eat more meat", but since I've decided to part ways with this approach for a while..

So I was wondering, is it just about working out properly? Will my testosterone go lower on a plant-based diet? Can I eat something raw that boosts eat? Watermelon?

Strength training WILL increase your natural testosterone production.
This is a topic that is very interesting to me as well. I also have a low testosterone count per all of my dr labs over the past 6 years. I even went on testosterone replacement therapy for a while which was a horrible disaster...(I don't recommend unless medically paramount) I am looking for suggestions of lfrv foods that will either enhance testosterone production or be a catalyst in aiding its production if possible.
Yes, it is.

I got my testosterone levels here. They are great. EAT ENOUGH CALORIES ON A DAILY BASIS, get the water,sleep, sun n fun....low testosterone levels are common in anorexics/undereaters and athletes that are overtraining. Symptoms are low to no sex drive, cant 'get it up' ie we become a flaccid franky, raging raylene, have irritablity, depression, apathy, dread of exercise, fatigue.

Low testosterone from undereeating effects both male and female.

whoops!! here it is..

around 6:30 mark.

LOL you sound so modest when your levels are so spot on and I just find it hysterical. I experienced similar levels of everything when I had my blood done, almost a year ago.
nice prize, by the way.
hey what if you have really high testosterone levels as a result of pollysystic overies..? I used to take the contaceptive pill to level things out but have been of it for 1& 1/2 yrs and now all the symptoms are comming back i'm becoming a hairy spotty gal with verry iregular periods... :(... ny doctor wants to put me on a new pill but i would prefer not to... should this correct itself through eating more fruit??? i am still transitioning...? any reccomendations...??
Yeah i have already decided not too.. before the "doctor" even reccomended it.... it hasn't done me any good in the past and i do not want to take it again... didn't even think of chinese medicine thanks for that!!

i am slowely eating more and more fruit and on the days i eat more i feel MUCH better for it so i am hoping that eventually it will help towards balancing myself out in many areas not just hormonaly...
:)
Id go low fat vegan overnight and then go from there with the fruit. Hormonal issues are just more motivation to eat clean and lots of it.
Dan,

I am hoping this isn't hijacking a thread which was started by Lev, but if that was directed to me...yes to all of the above most likely. I will be posting a 'meet and greet' shortly as I am a very new member and also very new to this way of eating and living. I've already started seeing positive results in the 3 short weeks of my journey which are amazing to me :)
Play sports. Test your manhood and your test-osterone will increase.
