It is trendy for biohackers to adopt a low carb diet choosing to fuel themselves on ketones rather than glucose. Testosterone levels can take a hit during long term carbohydrate restriction or fasting. I start to suspect something is up if I haven’t felt a need to shave in the last three days. The longevity forum has a good thread discussing natural ways to stabilize, recover and increase testosterone with linked studies.
Via longecity forum:
Increases T above baseline
