Testosterone Improves Fat Loss
Are you overweight? Let’s be honest, most everyone could stand to lose some belly fat. Another benefit of testosterone replacement therapy is weight loss or more specifically, fat loss. Studies show that men with hypogonadism (low testosterone) who use testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) increases lean muscle mass and decreases fat—especially around the mid section. Let’s be clear though, once you start testosterone replacement therapy, it does not mean you can now go eat pizza and ice cream every day. It is still very important to eat healthy and exercise when on testosterone therapy in order to lose fat.
Adipose tissue (body fat) can be found in the abdominal region of men. Your adipose fat converts testosterone into estrogen, which can lead to numerous health issues—especially in the cardiovascular system. Reducing this type of fat can greatly improve your overall health.
