  1. Is There a Single Best Book or Best Guide for TRT?

    Hi Guys, I am about to be 37. I have definitely gained a lot of weight: some due to aging, some to inactivity, some due to meds. My testosterone levels have always been 300-350, even though I don't show signs of hypogonadism. I have always been aggressive, put on muscle, etc. I just think I...

  3. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    Thanks. To me, it's just hard to get in the middle with muscle mass, strength, and not be bulky. Even 10mg of Oxandroline skyrockets my hunger and makes me bulk up, even though I feel much stronger and confident. Rather, I just want to look like this regular guy:
  4. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    Smont, thanks for that. I guess people like Nick Delgado do the extreme (so-called "bioidentical testosterone" and only fruits and vegetables), yet still are lean and muscular. Yet, he is doing these extreme things as a profession to prove himself. For the rest of us, best sensible diet...
  5. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    No, really. I wonder if bodbuilder's using mega-doses of hardcore ones like Anadrol would ever be vegan? Or simply on vegetables? 1. My guess is their protein synthesis is so high that they could at least maintain muscle on a low calorie, vegetable only diet. 2. On a much milder scale, I...
  6. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    I agree. I have nothing against meat and enjoy it. I just think the idea that we need so much protein per pound of bodyweight is bunk. Some people, like this Nick Delgado, prove that under certain conditions, only raw, vegan, and plants will suffice. Others, such as Will Brink, show up to 2...
  7. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    Agreed. Nick Delgado has lived in my hometown for decades. I am trying what he's doing 80/20% rule. More vegetables, fruits, whole grains...yes. More plant proteins and animal proteins sparingly...yes. 100% meat, dairy and doing nothing but raw and vegan...too difficult for anyone to do all...
  8. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    Also, as for info, it's hard for me to move past anecdote and see data driven studies. Compared to a pharmaceutical drug, etc. how much research is done in exercise physiology? Even something like "Tabata Protocol" etc. was only done on dozens of people, and replicated a few times. Not...
  9. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    I'm sorry. I am not trolling. I don't wish to appear dumb, etc. Rather, it's just that I have more trouble getting results than others. When dieting and exercising, I tend to lose more energy levels, muscle and strength, even with the fat. When bulking, I tend to gain fat much more than...
  10. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    1. Yet. If someone was on strong enough gear, I would think plant foods would be enough. No? 2. My basic nutrition teacher told me the Amino Acid pool lasts about 24 hours. So, something like rice for breakfast and beans for lunch would provide enough amino acids, even though a complete...
  11. Any Way to Test For Protein Deficiency?

    Hi Everyone, 1. What scientific ways are there to test for protein deficiency? 2. Is there a specific bloodtest, etc.? 3. We all know the ways to lose fat is caloric deficit. Essentially, lots of vegetables and protein is the common idea for many, many people. Yet, I wonder if all that...
  12. Can Anyone Definitively Prove Protein Needs for Active People?

    Hi Everyone, I see some people read a lot, and give opinions. Is there any single guide that tells us our protein needs. I see many mixed messages: 1. Traditional bodybuilding meatheads always speak of more protein. In fact, even educated people like Will Brink speak about eating up to 2...
  13. When Do Hunger Pains and Weakness Go Away on 16/8 Intermittent Fasting?

    Sorry, when I post a new thread, it posts multiple times. Sorry for over-thinking. I am just trying hard to find something that works. 16/8 fasting was too hard for me.
  14. When Do Hunger Pains and Weakness Go Away on 16/8 Intermittent Fasting?

    Thanks. I gave it one full week. I was so miserable and had reports to do. I started eating typically again. I guess just no structured diet works well for me. Just try to eliminate calories by watching food choices, using leaner meats, more steamed vegetables, etc.
  15. When Do Hunger Pains and Weakness Go Away on 16/8 Intermittent Fasting?

    Okay. I can give it at least a full week. Tonight, after my feeding ended at 6pm, I felt less irritable. But, every word I read makes me think of food. Mentally, I am less cogent.
