+ 1 Anavar and fat loss in TRT/HRT


Aging naturally brings about changes in body composition, which correlates with shifts in hormonal balance. These changes impact health parameters, vitality, as well as the aesthetics. Many individuals find the answer in TRT. Optimizing your testosterone serum levels indeed offers a favorable solution. Testosterone serves as the primary pillar of any HRT protocol. However, for those targeting weight loss, Anavar (Oxandrolone) might hold the key to shedding those extra pounds.

You may observe this scientific literature -

What does this study show?
This study evaluates the effects of different steroids, including testosterone enanthate, nandrolone decanoate, and Anavar (Oxandrolone), on both subcutaneous and visceral fat in aging men who were following a restricted calorie diet regime. It also assesses various health parameters and the thyroid gland's role in our body's metabolism.

What were the findings of this study?
In this study, participants who used Anavar (Oxandrolone) experienced significantly higher subcutaneous body fat loss and visceral weight loss compared to the testosterone enanthate and nandrolone decanoate groups, as well as compared to the placebo group.

What conclusions can we draw from this study?
For those aiming for fat loss, incorporating Anavar (Oxandrolone) alone or in conjunction with Testosterone therapy may provide a distinct advantage.

How should I administer it?
Anavar is a 17-alpha steroid, meaning a 17-alkylated group was added to facilitate effective oral absorption. This addition is known to add extra stress on the liver, which processes the drug, leading to elevated serum liver enzymes. Therefore, it's highly recommended to use Anavar at a low-mild dosage of 10-20 mg a day alongside a regular TRT protocol, for no more than 4-6 weeks, with a break from the drug of at least the same duration. It's also advisable to include liver support typically post Anavar usage.
As a part from HRT I would consider lowering the Testosterone dosage, along with the addition of Anavar, in about 20-30%, in order to lower the total Androgenic impact.

Where can I purchase Anavar?
Officially, Anavar is prescribed for very specific wasting syndrome conditions (such as severe burns, AIDS, etc.), so most doctors won't prescribe it as part of TRT. Should you consider buying Anavar online? Anavar is perhaps the most counterfeited oral steroid in the black market due to its relatively high price, hence it's crucial to only utilize the most trustworthy online sources that conduct regular quality assurance measures and tests on their products.

Id never drop a real trt dose lower just for anavar. Doing so suggests a lack of real knowledge on why those two compliment eachother.

The goal of TRT is to improve quality of life, health, and longevity. Adding Anavar, even though it has a low androgenic effect, will increase the overall androgenic impact on various tissues. Therefore, considering a slight reduction in dosage may be advised. It's a matter of trial and error, and quite individualized

Trt is to mimmick natural levels. So dropping your trt lower to become 50yrs old makes no sense at all. Keep it on a real dr prescribed level and var is simply a booster.

True, TRT aims to mimic natural Testosterone levels, how ever most protocols overshoot somewhat higher, and the addition of Anavar as suggested will increase the total androgenic impact, so it's something to consider, especially at an advanced age

HRT + low dose Anavar = Awesome
