Carbohydrates and Simple Sugars Diets which are high in complex carbohydrates, simple sugars and fiber will result in lower testosterone levels. Consuming an excessive amount of carbohydrates will cause blood sugar to elevate and therefore release elevated levels of insulin and cortisol. Once these two hormones are in the body, they work to decrease production of testosterone and oppose the action of the testosterone which is released into the body.
