Things have gotten so hectic lately! I know it's been a while since an update, so here we go.
I listen to the radio often and every now and again I hear a commercial for something. The latest was for andro400, a testoserone booster. The commercial states that it raises your testosterone and helps you lose belly fat.
This got me interested and I looked up reviews. The first thing I noticed was that it worked for some people and did not for others. When searching deeper, I found that those who said it worked often mentioned some kind of workout.
First off, testosterone is a male hormone that when deficient can cause depression, loss of bone and muscle mass, and low libido. Often, a man that is overweight has low testosterone levels. Being overweight as a man can lead to heart disease and other problems. So, testosterone and weight kind of go hand in hand.
The best way to raise your testosterone and lose body fat is by exercise. I don't like this because I don't really have time to exercise! But, there's no way around it. Weight lifting is one of the best ways to help your testosterone. Sprinting is another. We all know that cardio is good for the heart and helps you to lose weight, but don't forget that to actually make muscle, which helps you lose weight faster, you need to use resistance or weights. The more muscle you have the more weight you lose.
My wife thinks that first you put on muscle which makes your clothes fit a little oddly. Then almost over night, you start quickly burning fat and notice that your clothes are looser. That's what she thinks, though there is no scientific evidence other than her own clothings!
As far as supplements to help. Protein is a given!
Resveratrol helps to repair your body. If you want to help your hormones out, whether male or female, you need to support your thyroid. The main nutrients needed would be found in the Vitalizer strip- providing iodine, Vitamin E, Selenium, and zinc along with essential fatty acids. You could also add the CalMag in there for added Calcium and Magnesium. Vitamin D is also necessary for hormone production. And of course, the repair with Vivix.
So, if you're like me looking for a quick fix to get the way you want to, I'm sad to say you're going to have to put in the effort! I'm going to have find some time somewhere to get some workouts in. Darn it!
