The Key to Building Calorie-Burning Muscle
Unfortunately, as we age, our production of testosterone and DHEA trends downward. Our libidos slip, our muscles lose mass, we gain abdominal fat, and our bones weaken. Motivation to exercise decreases, which is absolutely tragic because exercise helps boost testosterone. To make matters worse, as people gain weight, their bodies start to convert more of their testosterone to estrogen. This estrogen can then start to overshadow the effects of testosterone in a vicious cycle: more estrogen, more fat; more fat, more estrogen. The testosterone gets crowded out of the equation.
Eating right, exercising, and managing stress are all crucial to keeping testosterone and DHEA levels high.
