If you were to ask most people what they think is the best all natural testosterone booster, I’d wager that very few would say fat loss.
In reality fat loss is the best thing you can do long term for a natural testosterone booster if you’re body fat is above the 10% – 15% mark.
So lets explore why it is so effective!
Body Fat Leads To The Conversion Of Testosterone To Estrogen
Fat cells are high in the aromatase enzyme, this is the enzyme that converts testosterone in to estrogen.
Abdominal fat cells are extremely high in the aromatase enzyme, so this is the worst place to carry body fat as testosterone production is concerned & in reality heart health as well.
Body Fat Leads To The Disruption Of Testosterone Production
Testosterone is created in the testes when the pituitary glands & hypothalamus (illustrated above) – receive the signal that the body needs more testosterone.
The issue is high amounts of body fat present an obstacle to this process, with the obstacle being estrogen.
In short, having high levels of body fat leads to lower levels of testosterone and higher levels of estrogen.

That is why losing body fat is arguably the best all natural testosterone booster, at least in terms of long term strategy.
The fact is that if you have high body fat body this lowers testosterone levels & increases estrogen levels.
This then further impedes your ability to gain muscle & may even lead to a loss of muscle mass. Which then leads to even more body fat & as a result more estrogen and less testosterone.
So this becomes a negative cycle, so by losing body fat you can turn the negative cycle in to a positive one. Lower body fat, means lower estrogen and more testosterone.
This then leads to more muscle mass, which means lower body fat, which then means lower estrogen and more testosterone.
This is why fat loss is arguably the best all natural testosterone booster and certainly the best long term, when you have excess body fat!
Hopefully it is now clear why losing excess body fat should be a primary aim when it comes to a natural testosterone booster.
