I’m 30 and have been on TRT for 3.5 months. Currently on 100mg/week, divided into EOD shots, delivered subcutaneously (truly under the skin, not the shallow IM method many call subq shots). Feeling good but have a question about metabolism and how you guys handle carbs/fats.
Before I went on TRT, I noticed that higher carb intake would make me gain weight. I’d notice myself looking pretty soft after even a few days of higher carb dieting. I got pretty lean doing a low-carb diet with higher fat intake. Now that I’m on TRT, I’ve noticed that I don’t tolerate higher fat intake as well-- I get puffy and bloated and feel pretty crappy if I eat a fair amount of fat. I feel, look, and train better on more carbs.
Has anyone else noticed changes in how you handle macronutrients? If so, what might be the mechanism behind this?
