Journal

Art of Manliness – Testosterone Boost – Read this article today and it was very interesting.  Basically the author of the article doubled his testosterone by simply changing the way he ate to include more monounsaturated and saturated fats.  His diet was relatively simple and consistent, but he basically said it included generous portions of fat, high in protein and not too low in carbs (as these have been shown to decrease testosterone).  The experiment lasted 90 days and the author dropped from 18% body fat to 12% body fat as well as gains in lean mass.  Not too bad for a 90 day experiment.
