You might know it as the so-called male hormone, but both men and women need it.


DIET: To prevent further fat deposits on the arms and chest, boost your production of testosterone naturally by consuming more protein. Fat, or cholesterol, is also essential for the production of testosterone – so eat nuts, eggs and butter but no hydrogenated or trans fats. That’s a big no-no to cakes and biscuits.

SUPPLEMENTS: Magnesium, zinc and B vitamins.

EXERCISE: Weight training boosts testosterone production. Not for big muscles, but for a lean look. Push-ups and chin-ups are great for toning those trouble spots.
