How To Tone Those Arms
When the sunshine is here, your arms must get out of their protective sleeves and face the world. It’s a big deal for a lot of us who feel they can take flight with the excess fat that waggles in the wind. Bingo wings aren’t a good look even in the poshest Bingo Halls. That’s why we have devised a plan to get your arms toned for your sleeveless tops.
Flabby Arms Mean Lack of Testosterone
Testosterone is primarily known as a male hormone, but believe it or not women need some of this hormone too. It’s not because we have some urgent need to grow a moustache or deep our voice, but rather the effects that testosterone has in producing lean body mass. Decrease levels of testosterone can lead to excessive fat deposits in the chest and arms.
To boost your male hormones naturally eat lots of protein such as nuts, eggs and butter. However, keep in mind this does not mean you can stuff your face with cakes and biscuits. Technically they are made with eggs and butter, but they contain hydrogenated and trans-fat, which you want to stay away from. Supplements like magnesium, zinc and B vitamins can help you improve your testosterone levels.
