Let’s take a look at the top 7 natural ways to increase your testosterone: Sleep, Diet, Fat, HIIT, Sun, Weights, and Alcohol.
Get More Sleep
Sleeping a few extra hours can boost your testosterone, and improving the quality of your sleep can increase it even more. The bottom line is: The more you sleep, the more testosterone your body produces.
Eat Testosterone-Boosting Foods
Diet plays a huge role in T-production, and certain foods can promote higher levels. The two most important nutrients to increase your testosterone levels are vitamin D and zinc. Here are some foods you should consume more of: Tuna, Vitamin D Milk, Egg Yolks, Fortified Cereals, Oysters, Shellfish, Beef, & Beans.

Ditch Your Excess Fat
Losing weight not only reduces the risk of diabetes but also increase the body’s production of testosterone. Low-T and obesity can create a vicious cycle, as obesity will impair the production and lower testosterone will make it easier to store fat.
High-Intensity Interval Training
HIIT exercises increase testosterone levels, promote fat loss, improve cardiovascular fitness, and improve metabolic rate. Remember to maintain regular weight lifting to continue to achieve performance and aesthetic goals.
Stay In The Sun
Men with low vitamin D levels are more likely to have low testosterone levels as well. Taking a supplement or getting the recommended average from the sun can increase your T by up to 25%.

Lift Heavier Weights
Your body, when under stress, will release more testosterone. Your body isn’t going to produce as much testosterone if you don’t fatigue your muscles and push yourself. Beat your previous workout by performing more reps or adding weight.
Cut Down On Alcohol
Beware of the beer! The hops in beer might be the cause of some very feminine attributes. The long-term exposure to the estrogenic properties of hops can contribute to breast development in men and eventually make it more difficult to sustain an erection.
