    Really not sure. I'm having the female hormone panel done so I can see more than just test levels. All I know is that I'm out of energy after dinner, having hot flashes and experiencing low libido. The test was a little over $50 and includes:

    -Estradiol, serum;
    -Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH);
    -Luteinizing Hormone (LH);
    -Testosterone, Serum (Total Only); -Complete Blood Count (CBC) w/ Differential: Hematocrit; hemoglobin; mean corpuscular volume (MCV); mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH); mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC); red cell distribution width (RDW); percentage and absolute differential counts; platelet count; red cell count; white blood cell count; immature granulocytes.
    -Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP) (includes eGFR): A:G ratio; albumin, serum; alkaline phosphatase, serum; ALT (SGPT); AST (SGOT); bilirubin, total; BUN; BUN:creatinine ratio; calcium, serum; carbon dioxide, total; chloride, serum; creatinine, serum; globulin, total; glucose, serum; potassium, serum; protein, total, serum; sodium, serum.

  2. Kenpo's Quest


    I hope you keep us informed. I too feel tired after dinner, but I thought that was normal for getting up early and killing it in the gym.

    Edit: Actually, I feel tired after lunch.

    My first lunch at 1000...

    You using lab core, a internet site, or your doc? Just curious, that's a good price...

    Privatemdlabs.com. There is a great sticky thread in here about them. They use LabCorp labs, the same one my doc uses.

    Thomas, it's not just the tired feeling, it's the lack of muscle increase from working out, hot flashes and low libido combined with a foggy head as well. All these are not debilitating but seem to be getting worse for me.

  5. I'm following your results, I am interested in what you find. You go for it and volume work is taxing on anyone. I think it is perfectly normal to be wiped at the end of the day and that can affect libido. The hot flashes are interesting, though.

    So what does your cal split look like.
    I run 40/40/20 and keep my carbs primarily to veggies, oatmeal, rice, sweet potatoes. And then I'll add Dextrose in my PWO drink in the morning.

    Target macros are 30/30/40. I find that too many carbs increases the waist size! Lol

    Yep, that is a really good one. It can be used for so many situations. I am thinking about people I work with right now. LOL

    So 30c/30p/40f?
    I would increase the protein. The older we get the more protein we need. The lethargy could be coming from your cal structure. Once I changed mine my energy started going up. But I eat a very strict plan that I found works for me and has pretty much everything I like. No breads, no sodas, no refined sugars, fruits are timed into my morning meals. Bulk of my carbs are consumed around workouts. I'm sure you've played with the diet to find what works best for you. Just thought I'd mention it though...

  13. My energy levels really picked up once I moved to IF. That being said- kids, work, life, training, and gym routine make me tired after dinner too.

    Getting bloodwork this week to see what my test and E2 looks like. Back in April one lab said test was 230 and a month later my doctor's lab said 493!

    Actually I've thought about it. Should get my bloodwork done 1 week after this cycle I'm on. That would guarantee me. lol

  17. Kenpo,

    What time did you takeyour blood tests? Time of day is a huge factor in the reading. Early morning your test is always higher and drops as the day goes on. If you are at 493 you should be doing pretty good, if in the 200's I would treat it as a quality of life thing and make the jump. I have to say I feel much better now that I am on TRT.

    Also interested in this workout program you are doing what is the OLAD and do you happen to have the program in a digital format you could share or a link to an article?

    Yes I agree I have a lot of energy when I am doing IF. Way too many people shoot IF down but for guys our size that are not looking to become mass monsters it is a very easy and freeing way of eating. Do you do the LG 16/8, ADF, or something like the Warrior diet?

    I forgot what is your cycle? If methylated you may want to wait an extra week or so for liver values to drop, then make sure to go in for the test in the afternoon.

    I run a 16/8, but I am not super strict and it can be off an hour or so. I pack in about 3-3500 calories in that period and meet all my macros. For my needs, it fits my life very well and makes things easy.

    Yeah, I'm on numerous items right now: DMZ, Hexadrone, Msten, trenavar, M14ADD. I'll make a mental note that it's 2 weeks, not 1 week after cycle. Thanks!

    Actually no, not hoping but not satisfied with the way I feel. If it's low T then I will subscribe to TRT. Right now I'm keeping a keen eye on my levels. My Dad had low T and he was miserable. I'll see what the blood tests say this week.

    Thanks big guy. I know that time of day is very relevant. Both tests were done in a fasted state and early morning (9 AM). Having bloods done this week so I'll see where I am.

    The One Lift A Day (OLAD) has been kicking my butt! Here is the link to the program I'm following:

  22. Yeah, that is a sick program. I did that last year and I plan to do it next when I wrap up this rest pause.
