: Dr Greger

Acritique of the scientific validity of the dietary advice in Men’s Health magazine discovered nuggets, a claim that meat can give men ‘a testosterone boost’ – but we’ve known for a quarter century that a meal with that much fat can drop testosterone levels by nearly one-third within hours. In fact, a significant drop of both free and bound testosterone in the bloodstream occurs within just one hour of it going in one’s mouth, whereas a low-fat meal of mostly carbs has no such effect. Based on in vitro studies on the effects of fat on testicle cells in a petri dish, researchers suspect that fat in the blood may actually suppress testosterone production in real time. If you feed people lots of eggs and meat, including fish and poultry, and then switch them to a diet with bread, fruit, vegetables, and sugar – with about the same amount of fat – their testosterone levels increase. Even more importantly, however, all their levels of cortisol – a stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands – decreases.

About PlantBased

Here at PB HQ, we believe that cooking delicious, vegan food should be easy. Whether you’re holding a Saturday night get together with friends, or you’re looking for a budget-friendly, midweek meal that will please the kids, we want you to be inundated with choice. That’s why we’re proud to introduce a new layout to PlantBased magazine, to make it quick and easy to find the recipe you’re after. We’ve still packed in your favourite features, such as Dr Greger’s articles on his most recent breakthroughs, and reports from Viva! Health, but we’ve rearranged our exclusive plant-based recipes into five categories: breakfast and brunch, lunchtime meals, midweek favourites, something for the weekend, and sweet treats. This month, we'd recommend trying our Sweet Potato Pancakes (p38), Cajun Steak and Rice (p62) and Piña Colada Panna Cottas (p101) – we promise you won’t regret it! On page 18, we look at how the food we eat can affect how we feel based on our dosha. Are you a vata, pitta or kapha? Try our fun quiz (p20) to see what your dominant dosha is, and how you can adapt your diet to suit your body type. Likewise, we celebrate Organic September on page 12, as we look at how eating a pesticide-free diet can benefit not only your health, but the environment, too. Enjoy the issue!
