Dietary Rules to Follow While on TRT Therapy

Men who are diagnosed as having a reduced amount of testosterone in their bloodstream and are slated to undergo a TRT therapy Melbourne program also need to be mindful of their food intake. Food items that you consume will somehow have an impact or influence the effectiveness of TRT hormone treatment. 

Below is a compilation of the best dietary rules that TRT patients should know and follow. Combining these dietary rules with your TRT treatment program, it is likely to help your body develop more muscles, make you look younger, lose more body fats, and feel better faster as opposed to just taking TRT alone.

  1. Involve yourself to an exercise program, and commit to doing it with regularity. 

I agree that this one is not a qualified diet recommendation. However, we know for a fact that we need to exercise and it is also paramount to the success of both your diet program and your TRT therapy. It would be most helpful if your exercise or workout regimen will involve the use of weights. A minimum of 3 – 4 sessions a week is ideal, each session lasting for an hour or so. 

During those occasions that you can’t do some rounds of weight-lifting, the alternative workout you can do is ride your bike instead or do some serious fast walking around your neighborhood. Any workout that is categorized as cardio will be good and highly recommended for this purpose.

      2. Make it sure that every meal you have has lots of protein in it. 

Every day your goal is to have 0.7 to 1 gram of protein for every pound of your bodyweight. As much as possible veer away from carbohydrates and fatty meals. And since TRT treatment is a lifetime commitment already, this signifies that your bagel with cream cheese eating days is all gone by now. 

You can have some salad for lunch but see to it that you accompany that with generous amounts of chicken. As for dinner, you can have grilled or steamed vegetables abundantly doused with olive oil and paired with 4 to 6 ounces of any kind of meat (beef, fish, pork, chicken, etc). 

3. Consume first high protein meal with loads of carbohydrates in it, two hours before you engage yourself to a workout. 

A good alternative we can suggest here is to treat yourself to a protein drink first. Do this an hour before you start your exercise. This will help in supplying your muscles with the right amounts of amino acids together with an array of other equally important nutrients while working out.  

It will elicit your body to produce more insulin which will take on the duty of bringing the amino acids and the manifold of other nutrients to your muscle cells. Once your muscles have them, they will surely be put to good use.

   4. Make sure that your system gets generous amounts of fiber. 

As a TRT patient, you need to have 20 grams of fiber every day. You can source fiber from various items like fruits, vegetables, beans, multi-grain bread, oatmeal, etc. If you are in doubt that you are getting good amounts of fiber from the food items that you are eating, you may consider instead the use of fiber supplements. 

   5. Avoid eating meals that come in a box.  

Generally speaking, the vast majority of the boxed foods that we have grown up to are made from highly-processed carbohydrates. A good deal of the obesity cases here in Australia are attributed to fast food meals. Therefore, as much as possible stay away from consuming such types of meals. Consume less to nothing of instant meals and more of the whole, farm-fresh foods.

Did you know that the vast majority of men who have reduced amounts of testosterone in the bloodstream learn only about their condition after submitting themselves to a TRT doctor for a series of blood tests? 

If you are suspecting that you may be next in line and indicating signs of low T-levels are in your system, eventually this will create an impact to the quality of your life. Start reaching out to a reputable physician and learn more about testosterone, its important role in your body systems, and how TRT therapy in Melbourne could help when you have a deficiency in this area.
