For the discussion of the consuming of onions and onion related activities. New bread since a janitor decided to delete every single onion general thread, just the ones that I conveniently linked.

>why should I eat onions?
Based on a study conducted by Iranian scientists, they've found that the equivalent of 1 onion a day in humans increased serum testosterone in rats by nearly 300%.
It has also been shown by small groups of communities to stop balding, as well as grow hair back when applied on the balding areas, however, no major studies have been conducted on this, but you can probably guess (((why))). Recently, another study has been discovered showing the same results with even greater effects.

>does it have to be raw?
Yes. The study was conducted with raw onions. Cooked onions have been reported to not work.
>how much should I eat?
Roughly 1g per KG of bodyweight. A normal sized onion should suffice. Red onions can generally be cut in half.

>How do I eat it?
Some anons have suggested dicing it and mixing with foods. Others have suggested blending it in a smoothie with other vegetables and fruits, bananas in particular. Some have suggested submerging it in lime juice to neutralize the sharp taste. If you have really big balls you can just eat it raw, some anons who have done this reported that it begins to taste good once you get used to it.

>which type is best to eat?
Red onions is the general consensus, although it will sting the most. White onions follow, which is a good jumping off point to becoming an onion man, below that is yellow and green.

>How do I get rid of onion breath?
Cinnamon, and/or lime/lemon juice.

I'm somewhat skeptical but if this works out for you then I'm in, thanks for doing this, bro.

Stress, depression, lack of social interaction and an year long exercise stasis are making me feel like a shitty man, hollow shell of what I once was. Getting back on track now after I actually failed to get it up with a grill and realized something was wrong with me (though it could be due to how wasted I was).

Are there any other proven quick test boost foods or methods I could start with right now?
I'm already on cold showers, eating meat, no porn/fap and getting sunlight.

It will be £100 wait.
But it's worth it regardless.

As for not getting it up, that's mental.

I had it.

Basically porn is a no no.
Fapping is ok just not to anything porn or instant gratification inducing.

I just blended a bulb of garlic with melted butter, spread a thick layer over brown bread toast.

I then ate the whole thing as quickly as possible. It tasted good but within SECONDS I was in unimagineable pain.

I made myself do it but I was nearly sick. I eat spicy curries a fair amount but this was a different kind of pain.

Garlic is similar to onion for test boost. But I was also mixing it with Vitamin C (half a pineapple) for 300% nitric oxide and nitrates.

If the pain weren't there I would have actually enjoyed the taste.

I've only just finished it. I am a tad scared about what its going to do to my gut. I washed my mouth under a cold water tap for 5 minutes.

The more it burns the more allicin though. I really got an insane amount of allicin.

very interesting thank you.

I'm going to try an adaptation that fits my macros:

6 cloves garlic, peeled
3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
1 pinch salt
1-2 lemons, juiced
-> all blended

based on:
http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/11816/toum--lebanese-garlic-sauce-.aspx
>>
>>43840224

Cruciferous veggies (esp cabbage)
Zinc
Vitamin D

Intermittent fasting can increase test, as well as getting quality sleep.

Avoid simple carbs, soy, flax.
>>
>>43841600

Olive oil is definitely healthier, the veg oil is basically just to create a milder taste.

I usually make huge batches because it keeps well in the fridge and the flavors soften a bit over time. Trick is to add the oil gradually as you blend.

An engineer to the rescue.

Buddy's units of T above are in nmol/L (nano-moles per liter), but the normal units are ng/dl (nano-grams per deciliter).

So basically at 19.5, if you scale it to the proper units, he's at 703. This is pretty fucking good, seeing as how that's almost twice the highest guy's level.

ONIONS GOT HIM A TEST OF 703

What kind of onion?

unless you guys are planning to eat raw onions like this for the rest of your lives, trying to exogenously raise testosterone levels will only increase it as long as you take these consistently. Your body will always try to stay in homeostasis, so even if there is a noticeable raise in t levels, it will shift the other hormones in your body with it as well. For instance, what happens when you stop taking steroid injections after a while having them raised? your testosterone level plummets and potentially stops your natural production. Same thing with this, but at a lesser degree. I wouldn't play around with your hormones bros.
>>
>>43843005
I'll eat it for life
>>
>>43843005
The difference is that with steroids you're injecting test so the body doesn't feel the need to produce it. With onions you're not directly consuming the test, something in the onions is causing the body to produce more test.
>>
>>43841704

woah hold on a sec. Putting garlic in oil is very dangerous. Botulism risk. It can KILL you. You got to make it fresh every time.

Do not make it in big batches!!!!

http://theolivepress.com/news-blog/be-aware-of-the-risks-of-botulism-with-homemade-garlic-infused-oil

I think you need to look into the amount of lemon juice used. If its loads of lemon juice then it might be fine.

>>43843005
>he isnt in it for life

>>43842033

You need to really chop it finely and leave it exposed to air for 10 minutes to activate the allicin. Extremely important.

And then after ten minutes the allicin has a half life of like 3 minutes. So if you wait 13 minutes you are only getting half the allicin.

Its fucking crazy how accurate you need to be.

I did bulb of garlic about 4 hours ago. Blended and spread on toast, 10 minute waiting period. immense pain. I've since eaten dinner, dessert, had a couple drinks. I still feel like I only just ate a clove of garlic about 30 seconds ago. People in a different room to me commented on the smell of garlic in the corridor.

I don't think this is viable long term.
>>
>>43838843

I don't believe this bullshit meme but onions are great for you, so here is a tip. Mix them with sumac if you can't bear the taste. It is amazing.
>>
>>43842419

you are reaching dangerous levels of testosterone. Please do NOT eat more than half an onion a day without consulting your next of kin
>>
>>43843101

Not wrong to be concerned. My batches last less than a week but maybe I should stop.

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs270/en/

Botulism can't survive at pH < 4.6, lemon juice is at 2-3. Worth noting that this is NOT an oil infusion but an emulsion, similar to mayonnaise, and the texture should be light, whipped and airy. Botulism requires anaerobic environment to survive.

I am tapering off my fucking fluoxetine (((prozac))) now. In two weeks it will be no more. I am eating way more onions now and working out again. Now I will go to bed at a set time and wake up at a set time. I have also finished my first 40 hour water fast right before Thanksgiving and plan to fast intermittently more often.

If my test levels aren't up in six months I'm going to fucking demand something be done about it.

I asked my buddy who's knows a lot about nutrition and such and he said this:

"Hahaha no.. I didn’t know much about the nutrition of an onion so I looked up the nutrition facts. Yes it has pretty good anti oxident/ anti- inflammatory in general, but the only thing an onion has that may increase test even a little bit mightttt be Vitamin B6... buttttt the main minerals that promote healthy testosterone and may even increase free or total test are Zinc and magnesium, for the most part the minerals in ZMAs work together to increase your test(Zinc, magnesium, Vitamin B6) magnesium and vitamin B6 aid in Zinc absorption. But in order to see like a decent change in test levels, you would have to have a mineral deficiency already, mainly Zinc, but if you’re magnesium deficient, to my knowledge it could help your test levels a little too to supplement with it."

Only ever have discomfort when eating the outer two layers of an onion by itself. Literally are it like an apple yesterday. No stomach discomfort only the sharpness at the mouth. If you eat with food you should never have problems.

Because the Ancient Greeks and the rat study used RAW onions. Cooking or fermenting vegetables modifies their chemical properties, so there's a good chance that even if raw onions do turn out to boost test, processed ones do not.

Only been taking it about three days. Feeling great tho. Recovery improved, mood nice and constant, energy consistent. Erections already noticeably improved. Also been supplementing zinc vitamin c and ginger for a while which also has had a good effect. Feel like the two are combining.

Overall, it could be one big placebo, not that that would be such a bad thing anyway. Still, the effect on erections, especially morning ones, seem like a good indication of something going on.

On another level, any food that literally makes u cry when ur preparing it just feels like there's something powerful going on with it

I think you've oversimplified the interaction between anabolic steroids and endogenous testosterone, to the point that it's almost wrong.

Anabolic steroids aren't all about increasing testosterone as their prime mechanism of action. Some anabolics have very low androgenic effect (Boldenone, for example) and barely raise testoterone levels, but are extremely good at doing something testosterone does - cause an anabolic response in the body.

Testosterone is highly androgenic and at least moderately anabolic. It's a poor choice of primary steroid to take for exactly the reason you mention - your body will not only reduce its own production, but will actually increase estrogen in response as well.

Food is a LOT harder to get corrective hormonal reactions from. Specifically with testosterone, remember that serum levels fluctuate all day long and bumping them even for a little while at a time is enough to keep that anabolically positive environment without the body specifically working to reduce its own secretion, because the daily fluctuation range is so high. The body just "tosses some into the hopper" now and then as needed, but doesn't actively work to excrete an antagonistic hormone (estrogen) until levels get consistently pretty far off the charts.

There are some good studies that show that even purposefully positioning your body in a confident stance, posing, arguing, or otherwise "faking" alpha male behavior provides a highly significant, if temporary, testosterone boost. Your body believes it's winning and needs this, and doesn't dump estrogen later to make up for it. It can even start to see the elevation as the "new normal" and increase its own production.

Chopping them up degrades them over time, it also dries up the juice which is the most important part. Why power through eating raw onions when you're not even maximizing the pros?

I can't believe this shit.
Back when I was doing construction years ago, I had one older workmate. Dude was nearly in his 70s, but he was really energetic and could keep up with everybody younger.
One time at a lunch I asked him what he did stay healthy, and he said that each morning he ate one onion raw. I figured it was worth trying out, but there was no way I'd be able to chomp down whole onion like this guy, so I started cutting it up into my packed lunch breads. We'd usually work far away from any restaurants, on island cottages or just summer houses so packing the lunch was norm.
Onion between bread with some cheese, tomato and meat actually tastes really fucking good. So for the first day I was feeling pretty good about doing it, even if it didn't make me more healthy at least I was eating something that tasted better. But when I got home in the evening and sat down on the computer, after a while I realized I fucking stinked. Why?
Tomorrow when everybody was at the car together and I was sitting next to old dude again, I realized that he had the same smell too. Previously I had figured it was just his natural body odor, but it was the fucking onions doing it.
I promptly stopped including them in my sandwiches.

So yeah, eating uncooked onion may or may not make you more manly, but it's certainly going to make you stink like hell. Are you really willing to put up with that?
>>

Why does chopping them up degrade them? Onions contain strong anti-oxidants, which is the property the Iran study credits with the hormonal benefits, so there should be little to no reaction to the air. Anecdotally, the onions I diced up on Sunday have not turned brown at all yet.

>Why power through eating raw onions when you're not even maximizing the pros?

What was your before amount? I'm guessing you didn't get it tested before, so what differences do you feel?

You can dice them, cut them up in any way, eat them raw, or even blend them up with other stuff and drink them. Just don't heat them up and don't freeze them. Simple.

I'm getting lots of dreams now that I'm eating onions. I wasn't getting many before.

we will have before/after test results in a week or two since the one /fit/izen is on day 19 or 20 and will be taking the after test soon. His before score is 700 ng/dl, which is twice that of a soyboy, pretty good so his room for improvement isn't huge (1200 is max).

be patient.

Onion contains sulfur which can definitely increase body odor.
