    Does too much Cortisol block the effects of Testosterone? If so, what kinds of food keep Cortisol from blocking Testosterone?

    Cortisol does not block Testosterone. It tends to increase in response to stress whereas testosterone decreases in response to stress. Staying away from pro inflammatory foods (e.g. "junk food") and heavy alcohol intake is a good start.
