A new drug is being promoted to help boost testosterone in older men. However, a Slate article argues lower testosterone is just a normal part of aging for men. I'm skeptical. I wonder if this happens less dramatically in men with a health diet... (more)

"Unlike American men, the Tsimane men did not see a drop in baseline testosterone with age." http://news.discovery.com/human/men-testosterone-tribesmen-120328.html The article says that American men had a higher baseline level though, and that... (more)

For any other men out there, have you had experience with a yeast infection? Has anyone had success or trouble while going Paleo? What would you recommend? It's been a while since I've been here and since I ate 100 percent paleo. I was doing Raw... (more)

I just found this very cool show on Netflicks. This is as close to paleo TV as I have ever seen. It follows two physicians from London as they go to remote places around the world to see what the people there eat, the state of their health, how... (more)

Breastfeeding is embraced by traditional food communities as the best option for babies. Now Scientific American says, "Strange But True: Males Can Lactate". Lots of PaleoHacks threads on breastfeeding feature commentary from paleo guys... (more)

After reading the question on female body hair, it occurred to me that the matter of male facial hair is similarly rooted in culture. While there are certainly many women who find male facial hair attractive, it seems that the majority of women... (more)

Full beards can be crazy hot. Clean-shaven (especially with a strong chin) can be crazy hot. Weird, sporadic peach fuzz hair and overly-designed facial hair...not so hot.

I read an article on Stronglifts the other day in regards to prisoners who lift and the impressive numbers they put up despite a horrible diet. Then I read an article that said men in the military had higher testosterone numbers than the average... (more)

I think some of that can work in some kind of osmosis. When the testosterone in a group raises, everybody's own testosterone levels raise. In a competitive sports team, the leaders could be the instigators for the others to secrete more... (more)

I don't use any shaving cream, lots of warm shower and steam from the shower seems to do the job so long as the razor is sharp enough and the beard isn't too overgrown. If my beard has gotten especially wild (e.g. after I've been hiking without a... (more)

My boyfriend has a growing, sebaceous cyst on his back- on his shoulder blade near his armpit. He's been going to the gym lots lately and weight lifting. I read online somewhere that those cysts can be triggered by too much testosterone. He... (more)

Keep applying warm compresses to it as often as possible back to back to back to back. The goal is to get it to come to a 'head' and burst, then you can clean it and apply some antibiotic ointment. If that doesn't work, see if you can get to a... (more)

Men are the primary hunter-gatherers and women are care-takers. I think that is sexist. "Women live longer than men on average" is like "Women are shorter than men on average." I don't find problem with either statement. Am I sexist? nada... (more)

I've been eating Paleo for a few months. I've kept falling off the bandwagon though. I upped my fat intake. My mate also is paleo and said that men need higher carb intake. So I've added some carbs to my diet and it has worked wonders with... (more)

I think a good guide is that the liver takes up something like 70g and the muscles around 200g. Now, we never actually deplete glycogen stores completely, but after some serious hard work, carbohydrates seem to be helpful, while a similar... (more)

So, I'm not super educated on all this... still learning, so bear w/me plz. I've heard/read that consumption of a lot of protein can increase testosterone levels. So, is this even true? If so, as a woman, should I be concerned? If so, about... (more)

Something I've been wondering yet am unsure of how to phrase this question. It seems as though men who are on vegetarian or vegan diets are more emotional, less muscular and generally more effeminate in their body language. They get up in arms... (more)

Considering men and women have genetically different body compositions, hormone cycles and reproductive demands, I think its likely that the optimal diet is a little different, but I don't know how. Most women I know eat insane amounts of sugar,... (more)
