I recently read that fat boosts testosterone, i'm wondering is it true? If so, how to best take advantage of this effect?
I know when i drink a lot of olive oil, like over 50g in one go i get that 'pumped up' feeling in my muscles about 10-30 minutes later
This makes me think that something like a combo of egg yolks (high in cholesterol) and olive oil could be a great post workout combo?

Well, yeah, cholesterol is the building block of hormones. But it's not like if you eat a ton of fat, all of it will become hormones. Like anything else, it's a tightly controlled process - it's only when you're very low fat and consume only n6 PUFAs that it becomes a problem.
