Yeah, so how much does it increase androgen production by.  Give us some hard numbers.    Would it raise someones testosterone level from 75ng/dl to 1400ng/dl (which is beyond the "normal" range.)

Yes, this intrests me also. Because watching a movie that has violence in it (I think it was Godfather 2, very good movie by the way....)can increase testosterone levels in men as much as 30%. Watching their favourite football team winning increases test levels in men. To me these seems to imply that testosterone levels are increased and decreased very easily by all kinds of weird things. :eek:

LOL. Forget steroids, its just godfather for me.

I know from experience, a high sugar diet is especially bad.

SweetJade, I'm always wondering what the HTH means in your posts? Can you indulge me?
I definately break out if I consume lot of carbs. No doubt about it.

I'll venture a guess and say that HTH means Hope that helps. wink.gif

I have noticed i get way less breakouts eating a frutarian diet
but i am a very happy person when i eat a diet based on deliciously cooked vegetables and bread and pasta and lots of spices
i think it makes my overall health better... beer makes me happy too...
i've discovered... not worring about acne and not washing to much and not using so much stuff to clear it up... clears it up... not completely... though

i have tested the carbon thing myself. all i ate for 3 weeks was pure chicken (cooked not fried) and water. no chips and sweets and stuf flike that not even fruits. the first week i had the feelin that it really clears me up. but now after 3 weeks i have a huge breakout and the some days before that i had a little breakout. so my opinion about it is that doing this diet was wasting time. i don't know what cleared my up the first weeks but it wasn't the food.
