I don’t know why you guys always seem to pick the weekend to freak out. Is it just so I have a busy Monday morning?
Whatever twists and turns this thread took, I think it’s safe to say that further posts are not necessary. Just to tie up a few loose ends:
To be clear, the forum absolutely does not promote “bullshit broscience”. A small handful of members may be offering advice that’s based solely on personal opinion and not science-backed, and that advice can certainly be counter-argued by members offering differently supported info, but the forum is a place for people to get goal-focused information to help address their situation whether it’s low T, getting abs, pulling six plates, whatever.
The T Replacement forum, in particular, happens to deal with a diagnosed medical condition. Being that we’re on the Internet, I’d like to think that it goes without saying that actual medical advice is not being provided (though it actually is said, in the original “About the T Replacement Forum” sticky) and anything read here from anyone should be taken with a grain of salt and filtered through common sense, your own additional research, and your doctor.
While there are some principles/methods that most members would agree on, there’s little in the field that can be definitively stated as being the one, single best, correct way to manage TRT.
To be clear, this thread is about the more-than-a-few people who think your advice, to be frank, isn’t worth half a crap and that your post count is filled with much more quantity than quality. You’re an unhealthy, out of shape dude who’s self-“taught” and highly mistrustful of actual medical professionals.
You tried TRT for a couple of years before stopping but never stopped being unhealthy or out of shape while devoting a lot of free time to giving people advice that can sound very declarative and matter of fact although it’s based on, at best, loosely supported inferences from whatever studies you can Google about the topic you’re discussing or, at worst, unsupported thoughts off the top of your head.
