Im gonna start with a bit of history. Ive been lifting for a little over a year now semi-consistently and in that time ive gotten some good results and I lost about 75 pounds. I am no longer pre-diabetic as well. However Ive been having trouble figuring out where to go to take it further.
Firstly diet. Ive been pretty bad at this honestly. In the beginning I was somewhat good at it, but lately, I have been lax mostly because I a. Dont have the funds to purchase many groceries and b. Just dont know what would be best. It doesnt help that my family consistently eats junk and often include meals for me even though they know I try to avoid it, I usually procrastinate on cooking in advance because of my lack of direction on what to cook as well so I just end up eating what they bring out of convenience. In the past 4 or 5 months ive tried veganism, omad, intermittent fasting. Gomad, and currently am very sparingly carnivore. I believe my problem stems from having unclear goals as I simultaneously just want to be thinner and also want to pack on a lot of muscle. So I end up confusing myself. I tried to simplify to just eggs and ground beef, every 2 hours or so now but again, Im not sure if this is best.
Next when it comes to supplements, I take prescribed drugs and such but also throw in Magnesium, Zinc, and things like that and am on TRT. Its about 200mg/ml .5 ml injected twice a week. My doctor also has given me sermorelin and lipo-b injections but I have not started them. Overall, what would be a very good stack to quickly start leaning out and/or packing on muscle? Polling around the internet, many say I might be wasting time/money with GH hormone peptides prescribed to me. They have pointed me to SARMS like MK677 as more bang for the buck. Additionally, in the more conventional department, I noticed my original drop of weight was accompanied by CLA and L-Carnitine usually twice a day and wonder if that could have contributed greatly to the loss.
Please if anyone out there is willing to dispense advice im all ears. Im in a fog right now and want badly to have a clearer direction to head in and if someone has gone through this already id love to know what I should be looking to or not looking to to reach my goals.
