Do everything to increase ATP production and Test. will take care of itself. If you read bodybuilding forums, you can find people who take test and antiestrogens or even thyroid hormones for burning fat…and nothing. ATP is the power source and hormones are merely commands. Its like your car, if you step on the gas and you haven’t turned on the car, nothing happens. I found one study that showed diabetics livers produced 41% less ATP than the same age controls. If your cars engine produced 41% less energy, stepping on the gas is still going to feel very wrong even when it is turned on.
