As I said in my Intro I’m 50 6’ tall and shrinking and in decent shape but my gut came 5 years ago. I run 2-3 miles per week and lift weights at 4-5 sets of 12 sometimes less if not I’m raising strength. I started having low T around 45 when I lived overseas. My doctor had me on a standard weekly shot. I had horrible water retention that I controlled with HCG, clomid and a water pill when necessary. Took a year to dial things in. Once I returned stateside none of my doctors would prescribe my treatments but my low T is stable but low.
Sex Hormone 22
Total T 268
Free T 49.5
I did run some cycles back in the day 90’s had great results for what I did back then (Army) today I try to keep my diet tight with low carbs. Last year 20g was my goal and I would eat 2-3k cals in one hr then wait 23 hrs. Amazing results. Boosted my T numbers and lowered my weight. This year my strength is decent but gym (planet fitness) has major limitations. I work nights but do get 2-3hr workouts 4-5 times per week. My work hrs may change but workouts have been steady for decades.
I’m trying to get my doctor to get my low T treatment going again and if not then I’m going to just start again myself.
Lately my diet has changed and I crave more carbs from my foods(nuts mostly) workouts are the same but should be altered due to muscle memory issues.
RDW 14.9 little high
Cholesterol 233 high

My weight went up during covid lockdown no gym just cardio. Trashed my knees for a while and I’m at 240 about 28% BF last checked. Maybe lower now since gym is open.
My goal is to bulk up slightly while getting to 220 this year. Next year I’m planning on trimming down to 195. I’m getting older and my BP doesn’t like weight and I have old war injuries that might feel better.
I still retain water easily and I’m not on anything and plan on going on clomid soon to see if that helps while I wait on my treatment.
I’m in the process of ordering HCG, Clomid and the other Novoldex. I did use cialis for years low dose 2hrs before workouts so looking to stock up. I’m dialed in here with one of your vendors (flashlabs) so I’m expecting delivery soon. BTW it was flashlabs that I found this forum.
