-I meal prep all meals Mon-Fri. Weekends include a few cheat meals(1-2), but nothing too crazy.
Been tweaking diet lately, because I wasn’t losing any weight at around 2800 calories… Ever since dropping below 2500, I appear leaner, but weight is staying above 200.
-Desk job 9 hrs a day, train 1-2 clients, workout, then sit on my ass at home.
-Train 6 days a week, 1 body part per session. No longer than 60 minutes lifting, with 15 min cardio some days.
-Rarely have morning wood. Like maybe once every week. Do wake up in the night with nocturnal erections tho. Never have a problem getting it up, unless I’m drunk. Never have a problem not wanting to have sex with my girlfriend. Can only finish 1-2 times a day, and with a few hours inbetween.
So I went in for a routine physical in August 2015, and Doc decided to do labs because I haven’t in a few years. Found out my TSH was high. He has never tested for T3, T4 or rT3.
I would say that for the most part I don’t have any symptoms of hypothyroidism. I work 10-12 hr days, workout, and wouldnt say I feel exhausted, or even overly tired.
The only symptom that I could see is that its been hard for me to lose weight, but I have recently realized that I need somewhere around 2300 calories to see any kind of weight loss.
After starting levothyoxine, I started to feel better, but already felt good so the change wasn’t big. Testicle size did increase however.
I mentioned to my Doc over email my desire to get my TSH closer to 1, but he ignored that question. Should I just double my dose of 25 mcg Levothyoxine?
Also, after all labs ruled out and autoimmune, the doc just said I’m all good and no reason to further run any labs.
So I guess my question is where do I go now?
