Most guys simply aren’t getting the type of results in the gym they are capable of due to their low testosterone levels.

In order to bring your levels back to where they should be we’ve put together a list of 10 foods you should be eating. If you rarely eat the foods on this list then there is a good chance your levels are already pretty low.
Don’t worry though, once you make the necessary changes to your diet you will find that your levels shoot up pretty quickly. Also note that none of these foods are illegal, dangerous or contain nasty side effects – they are 100% positive.

RAISE YOUR T-LEVELS WITH THESE TOP 10 TESTOSTERONE BOOSTING FOODS
1 – CHICKEN
Chicken has been a classic go-to meal for bodybuilders for decades. Things haven’t changed – this lean meat is packed with protein while containing minimal carbs and fat.
Although it doesn’t contain as much Zinc as beef it’s much leaner and purer source of protein. As we know consuming protein is crucial to building muscle mass and keeping our testosterone levels high. Just make sure you stick to the grilled, skinless variety to keep things lean.
If you find yourself at a fast-food restaurant you can order a grilled chicken burger and eat it without the bun if you want something that is at least somewhat healthy.
2 – GREEN BEANS
In addition to making you “toot” as the old expression goes, green beans also contain a lot of useful nutrients for boosting your testosterone levels. First of all they have more Zinc than most other vegetables and even more than some cuts of meat!
Additionally they are high in protein and fiber while being low in fat which is great for rounding out your diet. After all, if you don’t get enough fiber in your diet you’ll have a hard time processing all that meat you are eating.
Oysters are great for people looking to boost their Zinc intake – they contain more of the valuable nutrient than just about every other food source out there.
Given just how important Zinc is to boosting your testosterone you simply can’t afford to be deficient in this key nutrient. Just make sure you don’t eat your Oysters fried otherwise you will be consuming a lot of unhealthy additional ingredients.
In addition to boosting your Zinc levels, Oysters will also help you reach your daily protein and magnesium targets – both of which are essential to testosterone production and muscle growth.
4 – LEAN CUTS OF BEEF
In addition to being high in protein, lean beef also contains zinc which as we mentioned above is very important when it comes to raising your t-levels. Additionally, unlike chicken, lean beef contains some saturated fat which is also helpful for testosterone levels.
Just make sure you aren’t getting all your fats from saturated fat sources. If the only meat you are currently eating is chicken then you are definitely missing out on the nutrients found in beef.
5 – EGGS
A lot of people get scared off by eggs due to their cholesterol content. This, however, is a huge mistake – testosterone is actually derived from cholesterol!
Given that full eggs are a great source of pure cholesterol it’s no surprise that they can do wonders for bumping up your testosterone levels.
While a lot of bodybuilders like to go with egg whites for pure protein source it’s in your best interest to throw in some egg yolks as well in order to get the full testosterone-boosting benefits.
6 – GARLIC
Although we don’t recommend eating this before you go on a date, it can definitely help you when it comes to boosting your testosterone levels. It is loaded with nutrients that work against cortisol – another one of those nasty hormones working against testosterone. As a result your body will be breaking down less muscle tissue.
If you can eat an entire clove straight up then go for it, otherwise you can stick to using it as a food seasoning.
7 – COTTAGE CHEESE
This is actually one of our favorites. Although many people find that it looks disgusting it’s actually one of the best muscle-building snacks you can consume. It’s packed with slow-absorbing casein protein which will leave you feeling full for longer.
As a result a lot of people tend to have it before bed however it works just as well during the day.
8 – CABBAGE
Cabbage is another vegetable that can help reduce the impact of estrogen in the body. It’s also high in fiber which means you will have an easier time processing all that meat and protein you consume. It’s also filling and loaded with healthy nutrients so feel free to add as much as you’d like to your diet.
9 – BRUSSEL SPROUTS
Although not the tastiest vegetable they have a similar effect as cabbage and broccoli. They keep your estrogen levels low and are loaded with fiber. Remember, when your estrogen levels are lower your testosterone levels will automatically be more effective at building muscle since estrogen essentially works against it.
10 – BROCCOLI
In addition to tasting delicious and going well with various types of meat, broccoli will actually help reduce estrogen levels in men! You know, that pesky female hormone that works against testosterone.
To make things even better they are low in calories so you can pretty much eat as much of it as you want without worrying about packing on any fat.
