I'll attempt to be as brief as I can, I read through the estrodial post, but since I'm not on any of those meds I'm not certain what they all mean. Here's what I've been doing currently, what the doctor has for me, and what I'll be doing in the future. However, you all seem to have a much greater pulse of what's going on I'm asking for questions and research I can do before I see the doctor again in a few weeks.
I've been doing a low calorie diet using 300 IU of HCG daily. I've been working out doing mainly workout designed for fatloss such as afterburn II and warp speed fatloss.
The diet calls for 500 Kcal per day, however being a powerlifter and at 6'1" and 320 pounds, I needed a bit more protein. My Kcal per day were roughly 1000-1500. The results after 6 weeks were a drop of 33 pounds without a real decrease in my strength or muscle mass.
The past 3 weeks (weeks 5-8), my weight loss slowed to about 5 pounds in 3 weeks. I'll be on the daily HCG injections for another 4 weeks and then I'll be off maintaining my body weight for about 4-6 weeks before I hit the weight loss again.
I've also been diagnosed with insulin resistance and I'm taking two supplements to correct the problem, they are working as the fat around my hips and belly are decreasing.
My doctor hasn't done any hormone tests on me. How would I go about getting more tests done? Which tests should I ask for?
Thanks in advance.
