I was wondering if any of the experts out there could help me with this. I recently resumed lifting after a year, needless to say it was like re-starting from the ground up. I had put on about 15 lbs (most likely fat). After several failed attempts at doing consistent exercising, I finally got it nailed. I’m getting stronger and slowly, very slowly losing fat (in the process of establishing a diet plan).
Anyway to cut a long story short I’m thinking of doing some blood work to see if hormone levels and other key indicators are within normal range. After reading some of the factors on this website that can affect fat loss such as cortisol levels, insulin sensitivity and T levels, I’ve realised that it would be helpful to know this stuff.
My question is what exactly should i ask my doctor to check besides those which i mentioned? Also, should i do any other type of test(s). It seems to be very difficult to lose the beer gut.
