Monounsaturated fat can increase your HDL (and in certain cases, possible LDL). Saturated fat will raise both LDL and HDL. Consumption of both fats is correlated with higher testosterone levels. High HDL is correlated with higher test levels. So, raising HDL probably does the most to raise test levels. I guess you could try chowing down on almonds, cashews, macadamias, hazelnuts and avocados after the competition when you are bulking (maintaining, recomping, whatever). That might help. You could also consume a lot of coconut or whole cocoa for some saturated fats, but sticking with the high mono fats, with the smaller amount of sat fat they provide might be the healthiest option. You could also just eat like shit all around, and your cholesterol should go up.

Thanks cubby!

So today i had an early AM workout(chest) for an hour. Wasnt too bad. I can see all sorts of veins run through my chest when I pick up the weights. Its an awesome sight.

Around noon I tried for another workout(back) and that failed. Went in 30min and had to leave from being so drained. Almost all protein these days with exception of some apples, pears, and bananas. Took an afternoon nap and slept 3 hard hours. When I awoke it felt like something hit me hard.... Tom I have to teach a bootcamp and get some of my cardio in(like I need it). That should be fun(sarcasm).

Thanks you "guyz". I won't win 1st by any means but I will go out there and have fun. That's what it's about. Plus I want to go back to eating normal and being normal.

Workout have sucked lately. No energy to do much so I haven't. Did legs Monday and I'm still sore.

I ate pancakes and agave for dinner. I felt a bit flat already so I had a treat!

You'll do awesome man! Go out there and have an amazing time!

Wish I could be there to watch. I'm on the sidelines cheering this year from far away.

Go get it!
