The form of carbohydrates do seem to matter. Those lower in gluten (potatoes, cane sugar, fruits) seem to have a more positive effect on not only testosterone, but free testosterone (IMPORTANT).
This is because gluten-rich carbs like grains and pastas have been shown to increase prolactin (3) which is incredibly powerful at LOWERING testosterone (4).
Free testosterone appears to be the only form of testosterone that actually matters - which is bad news for vegans. (5)
While carbs are incredibly important, so are animals. Men need a diet that's high in natural foods like potatoes and fruits, but also rich in animals, as they're filled with vitamins and nutrients REQUIRED to produce testosterone, like saturated and monounsaturated fats.
As I began to study, I found the perfect male diet, I made slight adjustments to my routine, and created an actual system that eventually led to my doctor and my lady questioning if I was taking steroids!
Haha, that's actually an awesome feeling (when you're not actually taking them).
