I’ve read a lot of good stuff here and it helped me get started on TRT (200/mg/week now) and resolve a lot of issues and also make the best of it. With that said, I’d like to share a diet approach that worked very well for me towards cutting out fat. Nothing special, however, it’s very simple to follow and it minimized my hunger more than any other approach I’ve tried (and without counting calories):
Super easy, no counting calories…here we go:
First Meal - 2PM (largest)
1/2 cup (uncooked) steel cut oatmeal w/ bunch of frozen blueberries and raspberries
4 whole eggs w/ 2 whites cooked with spinach and a bunch of turmeric powder and 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (I leave the yolks semi soft)
Eaten on Siete crunchy almond tortilla w/ 1 whole Avocado
Right there that will keep you full until at least 6PM, and I train at 5:30PM.
On workout days, next meal will be:
White Rice (not measured)
Protein (chicken, ground beef, steak, etc)
Bunch of steamed Broccoli and/or Cauliflower
On non-workout days, next meal will be:
Same as above, without the rice
If I’m needing more food, based on activity/cardio level on my off days, I could throw in:
1 can of sardines w/ green salad + avocado
2 Ezekiel toasts w/ almond butter and 2-3 cups of milk
I’ve stayed active with weights 2 max 3 times a week, cardio on most off days (low impact), and staying active (walking as much as possible, not sitting, stretching when watching TV instead of sitting on the couch, etc).
I felt the diet approach above could work well for others so I thought I’d share. Best of luck, hope this helps someone!
