Looking forward to being a member of A.M.
I thought I was pretty up on the latest supplements and such but today was the first time I had heard of "Natty" boosters (does natty stand for something?) As a female, I've always had more "loose" areas then tight. I've never shirked my exercise or watching what I eat and yet my body seems to stay basically the same. Years ago when I tried bodybuilding I walked away with bad knees (from excess squats with probably too heavy a weight) and high levels of creatine -> and going from a size 4 jean to a 6 in five weeks, which was not at all what I wanted. I've always thought that an excess of estrogen was part of the problem however I've always been too intimidated to try upping my testosterone levels.
I by no means want to look like a guy. That is not at all the level of fitness I want. More like a fitness or figure pro. But I'm seeing little to no results.
Can anyone give me a detailed explanation of some of these testosterone boosters and what I may experience (do not want it making me nuts in the head or causing me to rage out).
Also, if someone wouldn't mind sharing supplements (for women) that they feel are absolute requirements. In the past when I was trying to bodybuild, I did take creatine and but was getting bulkier *and* my doctor told me my creatine levels were high so I stopped taking everything and went back to just "normal" exercise and eating. Now I'm giving this another shot.
