Hi welcome - Soya is always a good food for both the genders. There is no direct relation on testosterone, rather it is a very high source of protein, the main content of hormone. Soya or soya potein is very much digestable not only as protein but helps bone,muscles health, soya & soya derivatives are always useful for both sexes.
I understand your concern. Would like to tell you the facts of soyabeans, it contains a plant hormone called phytoestrogens which to some extent has mimicking properties of human female hormone estrogen. But studies reveal that it has no harmful effects on men, if consumed.
For consumption, Nowadays there are genetically modified soyabeans available, hence recommended to limit the consumption in beans form, chunks form. Soyamilk n tofu can be safely taken.
Only calories won’t add to your body weight,include the right amount of proteins to your diet. Remember , if you want to put on weight and look fit, you need to build muscles not flab. Eat -
Eggs, lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and dairy products that rich sources of proteins. Fish such as tuna and mackerel are rich in oil and are one of the best ways to increase weight.....
