In brief: Many ways
If you consume a very restrictive diet, you may develop nutritional deficiencies which can alter the function of enzymes, organ systems, and hormones.
Also consuming too much food and gaining weight can also affect hormones. Overweight men tend to have lower testosterone. Not clear if cause or effect. There are also a number of hormones that affect appetite and are altered by diet.
