    What do you eat/drink before bed?

    I typically always drink about 4 cups of 1% milk (44g of protein) right before I go to bed, so I can have a supply of protein throughout the night as I'm sleeping. That's about it. Is this good;...

    High fat=more testosterone?

    I've been reading this book, and it suggests eating a fairly high fat diet (33%), and sometimes up 40% of calories to increase testosterone. Of course this is mostly polysaturated and monosaturated...

    I'm a little confused, but this is what I'm getting:
