Been having some trouble loosing weight on TRT, (pituitary tumor) made a couple dietary changes over the past few months as well as some dosage changes to help loose weight.
I’m 31, 255 LBS, came down from 275 (this just from lower my t dose). I’m 6"3. Probably more in 25-28% BF range. Goal = 225
Originally started on 250mg 1x a week of Test-C about 4 years ago, currently down to 100mg split into 25mg 4x a week for the past year.
I supplement with
B6, Zinc, Ca D- Glucarate, and 1x a week ADEX.
I’m currently doing an intermittent fasting type eating pattern, I don’t eat past 8pm and don’t start until 12noon.
I do fasted cardio once in the morning and weight lifting 3x a week after 8pm or before last meal of the day. Maintenance calroies are around 3400, but sticking around 2700-2800 per day.
I’ve gone from P/F/C 60/20/20 to 65/25/10 now currently trying 40/40/20.
This has always worked for me in the past, I’m not sure if anyone has ever experienced this before. It seems the more I weight train the more muscle I gain, but dieting isn’t helping lean out, I’ve tried severe calorie deficits with the opposite effect. I was just wondering if anyone out there has any advice, maybe more frequent dosing or maybe lower protien intake, maybe I have to work out harder then I am, (usually lift or run till near puking) but maybe it’s no enough. This could be hormone related I guess.
Can provide lab work if needed, but all numbers are within normal ranges
