Debunking Testosterone Replacement Therapy

If you want to shed fat and gain muscle, having your hormones optimized is an important, but non-crucial tactic.  But as a mono-treatment, it's not very effective.  Or at least that's what we see at Stark.  The most powerful tools to achieve your health and fitness goals remain the complex, drawn-out solutions:  exercise, nutrition and lifestyle.  And in my opinion, Testosterone Replacement is too big of a commitment for the hope of an aesthetic change, alone.  Here are a couple of before and after pics.
