Great question.  I don't think I've seen a study on that. 

This is somewhat of a chicken and egg thing, though, since testosterone tends to help you lose weight.

The underlying principle is that the more you lose, the lower the conversion to estradiol and thus the higher the testosterone.  But is there a point of diminishing returns?  I don't know the answer to that...

I know my friend told me he peaked at 11% and he monitors his test level very closely, but I thought I'd ask

Interesting.  Did he go below 11%?

I was incorrect, he peaked about 15% bodyfat
he is below 10% now, but he also uses AAS and has no plans to ever get off

There's some motivation to lose weight. I still can't seem to get my last 5 pounds off though. I was down to an 1,800 calorie per day, cardio every day diet and was just stalled so I decided to take a break and reverse diet for a while.

I know what you mean.  I've got the line to creep farther down my abs, but getting rid of that last bit of fat is no small task...

They sure make it sound easy though. What I'm trying now is to get the metabolism back up while not gaining too much. So I'm just sticking with a 3,000 calorie diet for a while.
