Sometimes you need to maintain your hard earned musces with protein while you diet down, are there any safe alternatives that don't screw with your hormones?

What do you mean by "screw with your hormones"?  I'm asking for a reason.  Do you mean you don't want added hormones?  Do you mean you don't want increased cortisol?  Where are you headed?

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Without added hormones, without anti-endrogenic/xenoestrogenic. Are commercial protein powders safe? without affecting testosterone?

I don't think you need to worry about hormones in whey.  I assume you're worried about bovine growth hormone getting passed through, right?  But I say that mostly because I've never read anyone concerned about that.

In my mind, as you may know, I'm concerned about excitotoxins in the standard proteins from overheating:

Imo long term exposure to these excitotoxins could damage the hypothalamus, which could in turn lower testosterone (and other hormones).

The solution are undenatured proteins:

Sorry if I'm repeating yourself, but you didn't mention this aspect and so I though perhaps it had slipped through the cracks for you.

The only common protein that I know of that has a substantial amount of xenoestrogens is soy.  I don't take soy for these reasons:
