    My sex drive is good,never had erection problems and still dont but most of the time im to dam tired.I have a appt at the oncologist because they want to see about my rbc/wbc count.I also have a fallow up appt at the endocrinologist next month,I really want to see if its a thyroid issue.I havent had a sleep study but i dont snore or have sleep apnea

    How many calories? I think your carbohydrate intake is too low. Try reducing protein intake to about 10 percent of calories and replace the difference with carbs mostly in the form of sugar like Milk, OJ, Coke, etc. Also, make sure most of your fat intake is saturated and avoid the polyunsaturated fats like the plague.

    Take a look at Figure 2 in this study

    Just all around horrible nutritional advice.

    You state "try reducing protein to about 10 percent of calories and replace the difference with carbs mostly in the form of sugar like Milk, OJ, Coke, etc"

    Have fun trying to add muscle mass with minimal protein and carbs from simple sugars.....simple sugars yeah post workout only and if one is eating carbs at other times of the day they should be starchy low g.i. complex carbs from sources such as oats, quinoa, bean/legumes, barley, yams and sweet potato, lower g.i. rices such as basmati or doongra.

    Regarding fat intake.....30-40% from mainly saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol have been shown in studies to increase endogenous testosterone production.....but the OP is on trt so as far as him increasing his fats in his diet to increase endogenous testosterone it is pointless as he is using exogenous testosterone.

    Do you have the 6 week labs to post on your 100mg/week protocol?

    What is your SHBG as it will dictate ones dose/injection frequency and it is critical to know as it can make a world of difference on the effectiveness of ones trt protocol.

    Man that nutrition advise was bad,im sorry.
    My calories are about 2400 on off days and 26-2700 on workout days.I feel bigger and better on 45/50% carbs but they like to go to my belly button quick.
    Im trying to figure out how to post my labs but cant seem to find the attachments icon.

    Yep too much protein. Roughly 185 grams of carbs and 185 grams of protein. I can't tell if it's in your labs, but I bet your cortisol is high due to the skewed protein/carb ratio. High cortisol will make you retain belly fat.

    When you attach a pciture they're too small to read even blown up theyre unreadable. Upload a file like a pdf instead.
