This is my first post to the forum so hopefully you guys will not be too critical. I am a 25 year old male who recently started TRT (mid October).
Unfortunately I had to first try out androgel 1.62%. 2 months of 2 pumps a day brought me from a TT level of 118 to 420. Then, the androgel stopped working and doc finally gave me test cyp, but at 75mg weekly. Bloodwork is actually being done tomorrow afternoon to see where that puts me.
Prior to experiencing low T symptoms I was 6’2 and around 195lbs and 10-12% bf. I now have gravitated around 180lbs and 15% bf give or two a few pounds and percentage points for about 2 weeks. Before starting TRT I had dropped down to 165lbs and my strength plummeted. I need an outside opinion on what I should be doing as far as nutrition goes until I get dialed into my ideal dose.
Would consuming a slight surplus to get my strength and size back, then cut down to the body fat range I want be the best track?
