OK, geez, just trying to help some low test guys. I get your point. Of course, not a cutting protocol. I’m talking overall health. I’m going to maintain that many guys with low testosterone will have a more difficult time doing that without addressing their low testosterone, so I think the statement is accurate. I qualified it by saying visceral fat is a common sign of low testosterone. If you’re obese because you eat like shit and don’t exercise, sure try that first. Who wouldn’t?
By the way, I know plenty of guys that have only sat on a needle once a week and lost 50-60lbs once increasing their test levels. Not thrilled about it because they should eat better and exercise, and they tell other guys who expect the same thing.
Personally, age 64 now, and I’ve always lifted, at one time at a very high level. In my 50s, I didn’t gain weight, but things shifted around a little, more “centrally located”. Even though I ate very well and trained regularly. Starting TRT, I changed nothing else, saw me lose 5 inches on my waist and I lost 15-20lbs of fat, gained 10-15 lbs of muscle, in six months. Joints felt better and I had more energy, did not get as tired training so intensity increased. TRT has a place, for some, I’m not saying everyone needs to do it.
