The affect of dietary intake on hormones during strength training

Older Finnish men began a strength training program, half of them also receiving dietary counseling. The counseled group increased carbohydrate and fiber intake, consumed less total fat but improved the polyunsaturated/saturated fat ratio.

Both groups experienced similar results with regard to strength and muscle mass increases. The training effect was correlated with an increase in free testosterone, which correlated with increased protein and fat intake.
