Cookies. Chips. Let’s talk snacks. When you’re hungry, high-sugar and -carb options are tempting. But they can also wreak havoc on your weight and testosterone.
Luckily, there are many tasty options that actually help maintain healthy T levels.
Below are 5 snacks – full of healthy fats, protein, and vitamins – that satisfy cravings and enhance testosterone health. So when you’re ready to reach for a candy bar, try one of these instead!
- Banana & Cashews – Studies show bromelain, found in bananas, enhances testosterone. Raw nuts are not only high in protein and good testosterone-boosting fats, they also contain: vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, and potassium, which provide your body with nutrients needed for testosterone production. (1, 2)
- Cucumber Slices w/ Avocado – Avocados are high in monosaturated fat, which reduces LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) and increases testosterone. Mash them with a little salt and pepper, and swap those fried potatoes for hydrating cucumber slices. (1)
- Oranges with Cinnamon – High in vitamin C, oranges can help decrease cortisol, the testosterone-blocking stress hormone. Oranges also contain a compound called limonenes, which inhibit the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. Adding cinnamon to the sweet fruit can help regulate your blood sugar afterwards. (3, 4)
- Celery with Almond Butter – Celery contains vitamin K and other nutrients which may help stimulate testosterone production. Try it with almond butter, which is high in protein and the healthy fats that help build testosterone. (5, 1) Hard Boiled Eggs – If you want to boost T levels, consider eating eggs. And keep the yolk! Egg yolks contain: healthy fats, calcium, vitamin D, and HDL cholesterol (the good kind) – all of which help build T levels. Skip the frying oil and eat them boiled instead. (6)
