    Weight Loss and Testosterone Levels


    Hello all,

    I dont know if this is considered a newb question or not, but i was wondering, does less fat mean your body will produce more testosterone?? im in the middle of a cut and was just wondering because ive heard this theory before....

    Well I think it actually has to do with less fat to hold on to estrogen. The higher your T:E ratio is usually a good thing. But, while cutting you can actually drop T because of restricted calories and tough workouts.

    Fat cells involved in the production of estrogen. More fat, more estrogen which leads to holding more fat and water, a vicious cycle begins. But as mentioned above don't lower your calories too aggressively and eat suffecient healthy fats to prevent your test levels from plummeting.
