Egg white and whey protein key to boosting male fertility, but slash ‘healthy’ fats and McDonald's muffins
A diet high in egg whites, and to a lesser extent whey protein, could help boost male fertility...but even ‘healthy’ fats appear to have the opposite effect.
Less surprisingly, it appears that a meal high in saturated fat, namely McDonald's sausage, cheese and egg muffins, along with hash browns, should also be shunned by men trying to become dads.
These are the findings highlighted in a new pilot study on overweight and obese men undertaken by academics at the University of South Australia and Flinders University in December 2019.
They claim their findings present a direct link between diet and testosterone – showing that what men eat could affect their fundamental male sex hormone.
