The Sust is not Doc prescribed. I've read at few places that Steroids in general help with Insulin sensitivity. And anyways, my blood sugar showed up messy in the pre-cycle test.
Since u asked about the cholesterol part:
My pre-cycle tests showed:
Total Cholesterol: 224
I freaked out and at that time d only fats I was taking was: 5 egg yellows, some butter and 30-50 ml Sunflower seed oil. SO i dropped off the yellows. Started using Olive oil instead of the Sunflower.
Results after 4-5 weeks:
Total Cholesterol: 206
So the overall result is, though LDL went down so did HDL. But as you may observe, I get the feeling that yellows don't suit me very well.
And you're absolutely right about the fat loss part. I should be certainly losing some. But didn't want to reverse gears suddenly and run a fat loss now. I'll sweat it a bit...do some quality gains and then after 4-5 weeks start off a fat loss cycle.
But buddy, 4-5 weeks into any kind of diet we need to have a blood check. That sounds naive but can really be an enlightenment on how you are responding to d stuff u r puttin in!
I ran on high carb & protein for gain & maintenance for almost 4-5 years. Not only did I waste lot of important time with less gains...i used to just bounce off between getting Huge with fat and then losing Muscle during fat loss (no anabolics and lot of cardio sessions). But what the hell...u r too dumb to read when u r younger...lol...
