    Libido often has less to do with test levels ESPECIALLY if talking about still in normal ranges (going from 400-700 as example) and more with other factors.
    I actually did a lot of IF waaaay back in the day about 5-6 years back.
    I did get more energy at times, spikes in libido.....but no increase in testosterone.
    It also did not favorably affect my body comp....it didn't ruin my physique but it certainly didn't make it better.

    Ending conclusion: I am not a fan.

    Now having a protein/fat breakfast in the morning small in quantity then saving larger meals for later in the day.....this I can vouch for!
    I stay more energetic and my physique chugs along with no issue.

    This is what I thought, I also noticed increase in libido after using 'fat burner' stimulants especially after cardio on empty stomach. Being female, and natty I'd presume it's the stimulant.

    Caffeine intake post-workout has shown to spike test

    you have higher test in the morning as your pituitary gland has worked over night, you have had a good sleep and therefore have minimal cortisol. These things happen across the world - in the majority of races - nada to do with IF.

    Hell there is research that masturbating and ejaculating then withholding for 7 days can increase test by 146%....

    Will bump again to remind people of the consequences of bumping unnecessary content.
