Day 29 Update:
So I am learning that either a) I am a hard aromatizer, or b) MENT aromatizes HARD, which I believe is more of a function of the methylestradiol rather than a higher amount of aromatization. I have run dbol at 50 mg/day before but I didn’t notice this much aromatization. To be fair I also was not as “in-tune” with my body and gear usage when I last used dbol.
I started getting gyno again, so I threw in nolva at 20 mg/day, which seems to be greatly helping with water retention (and BP as a second order effect from water retention) and with the gyno. The lump has reduced in size but my nipples are still sensitive.
I have read that it is ok, but less effective to use anastrazole and nolvadex, and that I should probably switch to ralox from nolva and exemestane from anastrazole if I plan to run the AI and SERM combo for the duration of my cycle (I still have about 12 weeks left on cycle). However, in about 30 days I am swapping the NPP for tren ace, so I will drop from 3 aromatizing compounds down to 2. I am also aware that nand doesn’t aromatize much at all compared to test and MENT. So any input in this would be greatly appreciated.
Otherwise, I have good news to report. I signed up with a nutritionist to help me “get over the hump” body composition wise and I am now down to 242 (started at 247 three weeks ago). My goal is to hit 240, and then I would like to recomp from there. Currently, if I had to guesstimate my BF, I am around 15%. My baseline I am using is when a BodPod told me I was 16.7% back in March and I am quite a bit leaner and I weigh about 4-5 lbs less now than I did then, and I probably have 1-2 lbs more lean tissue now than I did then. I plan to hop back in the bodpod probably late August/early Sept to get another measurement.
I am also getting stronger and faster still while dropping weight, and my workouts are not suffering from any sort of lack of energy or lethargy. I could get into all of the details of the dietary changes, but this is the pharma forum, so I’ll leave it out unless anyone is curious.
I have also considered dropping the MENT from 10md/day to 5-6, but I’m really enjoying the compound aside from the aromatization, and would prefer to use that as a last resort.
