Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere in this forum.
I've experienced a significant amount of weight gain over my last 4 months on TRT with no major changes to my diet to speak of. I'm up about 20 lbs overall. My wife says I look great but I also noticed my body fat is up 7% as well for a total of 23%. Is this normal and to be expected? I last tested TT at 557 and my Estridol is in range at 22.
I'm fairly certain some of its muscle gain since my strength is up quite a bit from just a year ago. My TRT clinic says to cut my calorie count down, which is something I never really had to monitor before.
