Anti Estrogens Without Steroids for Cutting?


#1

Hi guys,
I have read that female atheletes take armidex/nolvadex as a means of giving their natural test free reign in their bodies.
Am new as a member, have watched this forum for years, it is the best place to ask:
Can I take anti estrogens to help cut, without the use of steroids?

How would you do it?
If not, how would you do it?
Cheers, Sam

using an AI in this manner will be of very, very little help.

it depends if your E2 is high or not.

letrozole has been tested in obese men for this… but they had high estrogen and low testosterone, too.

most SERMs would not work for this, as they tend to increase total estrogen (even though they block the receptor)…
