    Have blood tests done if you are concerned.

    Thanks. I looked at some of those sites. You know what I'm missing? Vegetables. Broccoli, califlouwer, all that jazz. I must incorporate those into my diet.

    Thanks again!

    Could you please be my trainer and nutritionist? I have so much to learn! I feel like a noob now. I'd rep you a thousand times if I could; every day I'm here I learn something new... and I'm a freakin' medical student!

    *gasps a deep sigh* (' ._.)

    A thing can be in one state, or another. Thusly, the number of states Ns, is Ns = 2^n; then, log(2)[Ns] = n. So, I'm probably typing this while I'm asleep. T_T

    I would hope that as a medical student you would have a bit of skepticism when it comes to health "information" on the internet. I would hope that you would understand the scientific method, and thus take most of the above information with a grain of salt.

    I read somewhere that saturated fats help raise testosterone levels - can anyone clarify?

    Maca root raises test levels very dramatically, I would say. You might consider it a supplement, but it's just a whole food ground into powder. Make sure to get organic and raw.
    I know it sounds weird but shaving your body hair and injecting testicle shrinking substances into your butt actually makes you less of a man.

    I always do my research on any topic; I've never taken anyone's word for anything. And yes, I do realize that there is good and bad information on the internet, but I also realize that sources are indefinite, and that I can't make a generalization about every abstract or article I see, based on untruthful, inaccurate or biased information from a few sources, out of many.

    Thanks for the concern though.
    Have fun eating!

    I am hoping, what I sense is a hint of sarcasm; and not agreement.
    Please tell me I'm right...

    eating adequate amounts of fats will allow you to maximize your natty hormone levels, but dont expect steroid-like results

    Monounsaturated and saturated fat (but not polyunsaturated or trans fat).

    Also foods that are high in zinc (oysters, beef).
