Lovely post MG! I usually sneak into a five guys and Jack a bag or two of peanuts whilst I'm there, hope all is well!

Raw Walnuts are my night time snack. I used to best crackers and cheese but didn’t like how I felt the next day. Add, walnuts are known as a healthy food/nut is a bonus.
Where do you find good walnuts ? They are my all time favourite nuts (no giggity) but the local bulk barn charges an arm and a leg for them and they are usually gross

I'd recommend probably an organic/vegan type grocery store like GoodnessMe (GTA).
Usually an organic variant without pesticides/gmo tastes best for all veggies/fruits/nuts etc.

Though I imagine most mid to high end grocery stores have a decent organic section by now that would include walnuts.

Yeah, I remember when the crossfit Paleotards I know collectively bought in to the "calories don't matter" line that Paleo gurus were pitching, and how shocked they were that unlimited amounts of nuts and coconut butter and made them all soft and paunchy no matter how much they were working out.

Well no shit, Sherlock. Why do you think squirrels gorge on nuts before hibernating all winter? Calories don't matter, my ass.

I used to eat vegan cheese on crackers at bedtime, now I eat cashews because they contain zink which I heard is good when your test levels are on the lower side.

Cashews will not increase a females testosterone levels. Regardless of the moderate zinc content they contain.

Hey @king56 - I don’t really subscribe to zinc, tribulus and others being test boosters. I know they do but I am yet to find anything that will increase to a reasonable % and on an ongoing basis.
I tried them all in my younger days.
I find test increases my test - not much else.
If you read any of my posts I believe in naturopathic medicine and am open minded so this is as much a statement as a question - is there any test booster worth a shit out there outside test.

In my opinion... reducing alcohol, hard training, and a regular sleep pattern have proven to positively affect testosterone levels.
Have bloods drawn after a sleep deprived weekend binge and you will notice how much they can be adversely affected.

Zinc, trib, arginine, zma... for every study that shows any minor positive effect there is one showing zero benefit.

Realistically for what you pay ... no, nothing worth noting.

At times we have all fallen into the supplement business hype. Those that feel zinc, arginine, etc are significantly improving their test levels are likely falling into the category of following the ad campaigns of supplements industries rather then scientific studies.

Can zinc really improve testosterone levels? Perhaps a supplement containing 100 % RDA, but is anyone who follows a decent diet really zinc deficient ?

For the cost some blindly put into the supplement industry, my opinion on test boosters having a significant effect on test levels is a resounding no.

When going through low testosterone bloodwork results, I tried every supplement on the market to improve numbers. Zero results. I was ultimately put on trt.

Do research and ignore supplement industry claims is my best advice and save your money on more,proven supplements then test boosters.

You pretty much came to the same conclusion I came to. When I want more test, I inject testosterone. That’s the only thing I found that worked. The supplement companies spend more money advertising and the beautiful bottles than the product, maybe I’m exaggerating but the point is valid. There are great supplements to protect your organs and help your health but none for test boosters as far as I’m concerned. If they worked - they would all be banned.
Appreciate your thorough answer.

As much as I love peanut butter
Oddly enough I'm not a fan of peanuts.... go figure lol

Also I agree with Goldie
The only thing I've noticed to increase Test levels is injecting Test into yourself
Supplements are horse shit always have been
I used to buy Cell Teck those mother fuckers
They should all rot in hell forever for taking advantage of young simple minded men like I used to be
Creatine is awesome tho
