Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated.
Sawadeekrob: Would you be worried about cholesterol in general on the AD, or just whilst using AAS? Dr. Dipasquale has some good reasoning to why cholesterol shouldn’t be a problem as a natural, but AAS I suppose is a different story. One advantage I have is that it is a short cycle, which is better for avoiding a dodgy lipid profile.
Cadev: I like your suggestion of carb cycling. I may try to do this in a way close to the AD which allows me to stay fat adapted, such as a mid week carbup etc as per the AD “experimentation” guidelines.
Cholesterol is a substance that nutritionist still don’t understand. It is manufactured in the body and also consumed therefore it maintains a weird balance in the body. Moreover the changes in lipid profiles are affected tremendously while on AAS and no one really knows the long-term effects of this on the body.
The biggest problem with AAS is the damage to the cardiovascular system, that is why doing cardio is a must while on cycle. Also you must consider that you will not be doing only 1 cycle and stop forever. I have never seen one person do this (however you COULD be the exception).
I personally favor a more balanced approach a la carb cycling, but I understand that some people are carb tolerant and others are fat tolerant. However even if you can tolerate all the fat possible I would still restrict it whyle on cycle + PCT.
I understand these doses can be hard on cardiovascular system while on cycle, how about when running TRT doses EW say 200mgs EW (of course more than my doc prescribes) ?
