Thx to you guys, I can feel my T-levels increasing rapidly. Can't thank you guys enough for all the great advice on this site.
But I want to go to the next level and the road is leading to certain dietary questions. I've been reading a lot of great Fitness Rx articles on the latest research regarding how T-levels are effected by diet.
This is fascinating to me because I had low normal T-levels (which at age 45 was causing me all kinds of problems) and I think most of it was caused by my diet! Ironically, I was doing all the right things: limiting fat, eliminating red meat and eggs, increasing fiber. Little did I know, I was whacking my T-levels!
Anyway, I?ve been reversing all that: in particular adding saturated fats, total fat, red meat and ? oo la la! ? what a difference (along with serious lifting) that that has made! I don?t feel a day over 32 now.
But here?s what I?m hoping someone will know. The studies seem to have a threshold of 20g of fiber or less for higher T-levels. But I know standard nutritional thinking is keep fiber above 30g. Are there any negative consequences to going to 20g of fiber?
I?ve just got a layman?s knowledge of fiber and don?t really understand this in depth. Right now I think I?m consuming around 30g of fiber a day. Are there any big consequences for a middle aged guy to lower that down to something near 20g?
