When you’re using TOT, you’re showing dedication to maintaining your body and mind in prime shape. However, those that use Testosterone Optimization Therapy also benefit from using “agents of change” — substances that help with altering your physique in the most amazing ways. Let’s have a closer look at the substances that promote fat loss and appetite suppression so you can learn all about them:
Albuterol is usually used as a treatment for asthma, bronchospasm and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, but it’s also a powerful fat loss agent. As a beta-2 receptor adrenergic agonist, it can accelerate fat burning in a low insulin environment. However, after a while, it begins to downregulate the beta-2 receptors which decrease its effectiveness. It is why the recommended use involves an “off” period of two weeks and then going back to two weeks of taking 3-6 mg per day, depending on body size.
Desiccated thyroid hormone medications that contain the active thyroid hormone constituents can increase your base metabolic rate only slightly. Unlike harsher thyroid medications such as Cytomel and Synthroid which can permanently alter your natural thyroid output, desiccated thyroid medications won’t have that risk. Using them with a calorie-restricted diet helps with fat loss, while a muscle-building diet will promote caloric processing and burning. With desiccated thyroid medications, you’ll find it easier to lose fat, and you’ll gain it less often while being able to build lean muscle more efficiently. Follow your physician’s instructions on using it, and monitor your blood work to stay in the optimal range of thyroid levels.
Ipamorelin is one of many in the class of drugs called growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRPs), which have many benefits. They can increase insulin-like growth factor and natural Human Growth Hormone production, which has some advantages:
- Supporting lean muscle growth;
- Increasing cell synthesis;
- Elevating secretion levels of insulin from pancreatic tissue;
- Controlling hunger and improving absorption of nutrients.
It’s especially useful for women, who experience drastic and amazing body physique changes when using it. The recommended dose is 200-300 mg injected subcutaneously one to three times per day, ideally before training sessions.
When we hear the word “nicotine,” we think of tobacco and tobacco-related products. However, nicotine taken as a supplement is an entirely different thing. It’s an excellent supplement for cognitive enhancement, but it has another important quality — appetite suppression. In combination with a fat loss diet, it’s quite capable. To make the most out of nicotine, you’ll want to get your body into a state of low insulin, which means that using nicotine at the end of a fasting window is when it’s going to be capable of getting stored fat out of cells to be used as energy. Don’t use nicotine outside of fasting windows, and start with 1 mg per day, eventually working up to 2 mg. The optimal time frame for using nicotine is four weeks, usually the last four weeks of your fat loss diet which helps get that stubborn remaining fat out of your system.
It’s essential to consult with your doctor before using most of these, as some of them require a prescription. Read the TOT Bible carefully for more detailed instructions and further information, and get ready to become a healthier, leaner man.
