Re: high fat vegan

Hello everyone! I'm new to this website/forum and to vegan in general. I am a pescatarian and Im interested in switching to vegan to see if it works for me as a bodybuilder. I have found that I make incredible muscle gains on a high fat diet (about 51% fat). Most vegan diets I've seen are high carb...

Re: Low Testosterone

Everything else was normal. Otherwise, at least one of the six doctors I visited would have likely recommended something else. Only my total test and free test was low. But this is all moot now. I fixed it and I now know that the standard medical practice in these cases is mostly pure BS and centere...

Re: Low Testosterone

My testosterone was 113. Is that low enough for you?

Re: Low Testosterone

Well, it has been over a year, but I wanted to give ya'll an update. I cycled Tamoxifen for 2 months on/2 months off, three times, and I am now free of all meds and my testosterone is staying in the low normal range. I sure am glad I didn't listen to the doctors.

Re: How do you get/keep motivated?

I think you have to figure out what your goal is to be fit and healthy. Simply to look good doesn't seem to motivate too many people unless they are narcissists. LOL Maybe you want to feel better, or do more physical activities you enjoy that you can't do now. Maybe you want to simply be a great rep...

Re: transition from vegitarian to vegan with food intoleranc

I have found that a lot of ethnic food is naturally vegan and wheat free. Some soy free as well. Ethiopian food traditionally is dairy and egg free, and the Injera is gluten free. However, many restaurants and markets will make their injera by mixing the teff with wheat or buckwheat flower because i...

Re: The fruits dillema

If I didn't eat fruit I would die. Seriously. It makes up about 90% of my diet.

Re: P90X Vegan Diet

Veganbadass, are you in Colorado? If so, where? I did 4 rounds of P90X and 3 rounds of insanity with very little results. Convinced me to get stuff checked out and I found I have a hormone problem. Now that I have that figured out, I am working on starting a round of Insanity. I hope to see some res...

Re: Partner wont listen to me

I am a personal trainer and a nutritionist, and I have the same problem with family or close friends listening. Complete strangers are always far more interested in what I have to say. It is a bizarre trait of humans for some reason. My first thought would be to dump him and find someone who respect...

Re: Low Testosterone

Why is it better than a steroid? Curious on that as well - considering that HCG (the real stuff, not the "HCG Diet" crap) is typically derived from the urine of from pregnant horses, something I'd prefer to avoid if possible, I'd likely be more prone to taking a low dose of something like...

Re: Low Testosterone

It seems like a person should be able to supplement with a lower does of testosterone for an 8-week cycle, then have 8 weeks off, but I could be wrong... Why would I want to do that when my testicles can produce all the testosterone I need? And if someone cycles testosterone like that, it would be ...

Re: Low Testosterone

Why do you need it. What happens if your testosterone is too low? Or better question, how have you been affected in the past by your testosterone being too low? What if any are the side effects of taking the SERM? Low testosterone, in my particular case, causes very low energy, anxiety, weak bones,...

Why do you say that?


Why do I say I might have to take a SERM for the rest of my life, or why is it better than a steroid?

Re: Machines, do you ever use them?

I too use machines rarely. Only when stuck in a hotel that only has them, or if I have an injury I am working through. My favorite device is the Jungle Gym XT, because it does help to develop all those stabilizer muscles, and they are small enough to take on trips. If you can do 50 pushups on the fl...
