Then we have the cutting phase, and if Anavar for women was ever beneficial this is the time. Through use, the athlete will hold onto more lean tissue during a calorie reduced phase than they would otherwise. They will also greatly preserve their strength that is often lost when dieting. Just as important, they will burn far more body fat during their diet than without Anavar. Anavar has been shown time and time again to be one of the few anabolic steroids that directly burn body fat. Most all steroids promote enhanced metabolic activity, but only a few directly burn body fat and few do it as well as Anavar.
