6. But Don’t Sport Fat Around Your Mid-Section
While using very low fat diets for fat burning purposes are no way to boost your testosterone levels, you still need to find an effective way to shed those excess pounds.
Excess fat on your body is going to result in added estrogen secretion, which counteracts the impacts of testosterone.
Men who sport 20+ pounds, especially around their midsection are going to have a much harder time building lean muscle mass, maintaining their sexual function, and feeling like their normal selves.
A lower calorie, moderate fat, moderate carb, high protein diet is the route to take.
On a related note: If you tend to have a lot of mid-section fat, low energy, and find it hard to build muscle, you may have high estrogen.
Try supplementing with an estrogen blocker and follow the steps in this article to optimize your natural hormones.
