Hey so I used to lose weight fairly well when i did straight macro counting to lose weight though my carbs were usually high and came from sugary snacks. However ever since i switched to test injections from the gels i was using, i am no longer losing weight no matter how low i go on calories which im currently doing 1600 (macros change day to day but usually hit .8 bod weight in protein and avg 200 carbs) a day with a 2500 refeed day. Im 5’7 185 pounds but was 160 before
Ive done my bloodwork a couple times now and at first I was only low on DHEA which ive supplemented and brought up to be within the recommend range. I have even dropped my estro to see if that would help.
Does macro counting no longer work if you are on test in ejections or is it like an age thing because im 30 now and this was like 2 years ago? I cant really get myself to do low carbs or pure clean eating because im already pissed all the time from the 1600 cals. I usually work out 4 times a week and do about 30 mins cardio each session.
edit: I also started taking an antidepressant which i hear makes you gain weight
