Few of the most often asked questions I get are: what do I eat to maintain high testosterone levels, and if I have a specific list of recommended foods that boost testosterone. While there are many food related posts scattered around this blog, I’ve never really made an all-around post about what I would put into a high T pantry. Until now.
In this massive article, you will basically get a 30 item shopping list of foods that boost testosterone in men with all the nitty-gritty explanations about why the foods are great for the endocrine system.
1. All Kinds of Potatoes
If you’re a frequent reader here in AM, you already know that carbohydrates are hugely important for healthy testosterone production.
You also know that grains are not the preferred source of carbs, mainly due to problems with gluten, which can significantly increase prolactin levels, effectively messing up T production.
Simple sugars are also not the preferred carbohydrate sources on a high T diet, since they have been linked to lowered testosterone levels in multiple studies.
Ruling out grains and simple sugars, may make it look like you can’t eat any carbs, except for salad, but that’s not the case.
You can – and should eat – potatoes as part of a testosterone boosting diet!
Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, russets, red potatoes, purple potatoes, etc. If it’s a potato, you should be eating it. Potatoes are excellent no-gluten source of testosterone boosting carbohydrates, and also very dense in nutrients. Stock pile your pantry full of them, and make potatoes your main carbohydrate source.
