Low carb diet
Okay so I am gonna do no carb for about a month or two and then slowly increase carbs back to current level. I take muscle milk lite(until starting diet), multivitamin, fish oil, coconut oil, zma and bromocriptine to lower my prolactin. I am thinking about adding a calcium supplement. My question is this with low to no carbs what else should I do since there will be less calcium, no sugar, more fat........in my diet. Is the fish oil enough to keep cholesterol in check? I have low testosterone, but I think that it would be better to do this and lose weight.

I'm not sure if Bromo plus a low carb diet would be the best choice. I know that it can cause hypogycemia so combining it with a no carb diet might be problematic. I haven't used it before so I don't have a definative answer for you. Just feel it out and if you get too hypo, then stop the bromo. You could always add P-5-P and/or mucana but it probably won't be as effective at reducing prolactin. Perhaps some with a little more experience with bromo could chime in.

Try UD 2.0
Low carb for a long time is retarded as the person doing it.
You'll lose to much muscle and feel like ****.

i'd say that you do what is called "carb cycling." one high day, next mid day, next low day, followed by one/two no days. and then repeat. i've never used this method, but i can bet it works, as i've seen people use it with results.

that's fine with the whey, multi, etc.... don't take calcium 1-2 hours before or 1-2 hours after ZMA, Calcium inhibits the absorption of zinc.
Cholesterol is not gonna be an issue, it actually improves for most people on a low carb diet.

don't people take bromo to increase their insulin sensitivity??? If you are doing low carbs, you should end up with a really high insulin sensitivity anyways. The only place I could see it helping is on refeed days if you decide to implement them

P5P and chast berry with Ldopa to lower prolactin, ditch the bromocriptine
as for the diet low carb is the way to go,
fats from your EFAs fish chicken red meat olive oil macadamia nut oil,
do a refeed meal 1 time a week on that same day and time every week.
low intensity cardio,
low volume training with high intensity and no longer then 1 hour in the gym (unless u do cardio.)
take mulit, and calcium+D fiber supps inbetween meals (not with a fatty acid supplement)
veggies should be limited as they will keep bulk in your stomach and keep it streched, (dont have more then 2 servings a day)
this is a great outline for a keto (being a nutrition makor i still shouldnt be telling you how to do it lol, but if i said it wont work id be lying just like the ADA)
soooo any other questions.? did i cover eveything?

Okay well I just got back from vitamin world and the grocery store. I got enough food for about two weeks of CKD. My new stack is this Fish oil 3x a day w each main meal, Multivitamin 1x in the morning and bone care w Calcium, vitamins d and k 1x in the morning. I dropped the ZMA and instead I bought separate bottles of Zinc, Magnesium, and B-6 I am going to take one of each at night with 1tbsp coconut oil. Is it okay to take the coconut oil while on CKD? Is there anything else that can help keep my heart healthy? I am also thinking about adding creatine.

Fiberlyze by species nutrition is GREAT, also the OMEGALYZE (its a complete fatty acid supp with GLA EPA DHA ect..)
do NOT take your fish oil with fiber, itll bind the the fatty acids and will be useless.
if you dont get fiberlyze, go for some orange sugar free metamucil. (the other flavors taste like ****.)

Off topic a little bit, but for the last few days I have been constipated. I am eliminating caffeine and adding fiber. I started the CKD diet today so I don't think it is what caused it. I have been for the last three months taking muscle milke lite twice a day. I am experiencing symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome abdominal discomfort that alleviates with movement....... Is it possible I am taking too much stuff and it's clogging me up? Should I do a cleanse or something or is adding the fiber enough?

high fiber and not enough watrer can back u up and dehydrate you aswell,
high fiber a lot of water, should be a staple in any diet.
its most likely the fact that you are not eating any fiber, feeling bloated, constipated, stomach pains ect, have a heaping tablespoon of metamucil drink a **** load of water , and call me in the morning lol. you can do this every 4 hours until you ****. and then just to stay regular after that first initial crap, haqve it inbetween every meal,
