Nope: There is 0 good re Anabolic steroids from a medical perspective. You can't expect wght loss from them alone. The idea is, if you build up muscles (pro athletes have proven you can (illegally) on a. Steroids), the muscles will burn the calories that you eat, so you won't get fat. But you have to get the muscles first. Fat athletes are rare. Get big muscles, stop eating, then wght loss. But hunger.

Yes: But beware! you should only use bio-identical / human hormones - i.e., testosterone - and only at the appropriate/physiologic doses! thus, you should only do this under the direction and eye of a competent md who is very well-versed in andropause treatment.
