We'll let Peter do the talking...

My name is Peter. I live in Sydney and am 67 years old. For many years I have faced a continual weight/diet problem. When I would lose weight with a crash diet I would very soon regain that lost weight. It was not a healthy way to live and I eventually realized that I required something different and permanent.

 In February 2015 I happened to hear an advertisement on the radio asking for male volunteers to participate in a clinical trial to assist overweight males. As I was intrigued I contacted the trial and following a written questionnaire and an interview I was invited to join the trial. I subsequently commenced the trial in March 2015.

The trial consisted of a quarterly injection of either Testosterone or a placebo (we were not advised which one we received) and a diet regime supplied by Weight Watchers. I chose to participate in the on-line version of Weight Watchers.

The WW program was a revelation. Easy to follow, healthy and at long last I have found an eating regime which is easy to follow, maintain and enjoy. I have now been in the program for 14 months and am delighted to report that my weight has dropped from 103.9 kilos to 89 kilos (my goal weight was 88 kilos but perhaps I can better this target - who knows). I walk every day for an average 5km and I have not felt this good for many a long year.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the trial to any man who reads this testimonial and wonders whether the trial could help him. In the words of Nike - "Do It'.
