Steroid oil = more calories?!?!

It just occured to me that I am dieting & taking in a good 2000mg of test a week.
In this case that’s 8ml of oil per week. Now if it is injected it goes in the muscle and eventually the bloodstream so is it “digested”-or simply filtered out through another mechanism?
I mean am I getting an extra 1000 calories a week from the oil in the juice?!?!?!

Also has anyone taken large doses of Tryosine plain? Animal claims it will cause dramatic fat loss.

I hope you are joking.

1ml of water = 1cc = 1 gram. Fat has 9 calories per gram so that’s 8? grams per week * 9 or 72. Oil is less dense than water so 8ml of oil is less than 8 gm so it has less than 72 calories.

Also given that the oil doesn’t go through your digestive tract, I’m not sure your body can use those 72 calories anyway…they might get eliminated w/o being digested.

So no, it’s not 1000 calories.
