    I speculate that this may be pattern alot of guys may have fallen in over the past years. Understand that this is a simplified version with out all the neurological adaptions that may have gone on (glutemate increase , yada yada) which can also start the cascade

    dietary imbalances defieincies, daily stress over training , under eating, excessive cardio-elevated cortisol - suppressing thyroid (t4 to t3 conversion) and testosterone - leading into adrenal fatigue and altered estrogen metabolism

    Pretty sure this is basically what happened to me when I started to work out hard again (about 3 months after starting), but I did not realize my Testosterone was low. The result was feeling horrible and pain in all my joints. Once I raised my calories some and took a week off while starting TRT things have been much better.

    Probably was in this pattern in my early 20's when I would work out hard 5x a week and not eat very well.

    These days, I feel pretty good and maybe lift 2x per week. If I push much harder than that...my energy levels go away completely and I feel like hell.

    Probably am low on T though. Thyroid seems to be doing well (based on tests and feel) and adrenals have been MUCH better (judging by feel) since my new baby put me on a more diurnal schedule. I'm up at dawn and in bed by 930 pm and I feel waaay better.

    I am not a body builder and I do not exercise excessively.
    but

    in 1993 I was told that I will be out of my company in 4 years.

    Since that time my focus changed.
    I was overweight 15-20 pounds at the time (by my standards).
    Started with long lunch hours, more like 2-3 hours, at first long walks then running.

    Latter I remember running in close to 100F heat my normal 6 miles runs and then bouncing tennis ball off the wall afterward.

    I remember having runners high often.

    I think that "runners high" must have been what did me in.

    I buy your theory, HAN.
