feel drowsy today and can’t concentrate properly right now (probably the stupid polenta mom made and i had to eat…i’m staying with my parents for a few days), so sorry if i’m not going into details as much as i should. i’ll try to update with time.
[quote]Please describe your diet [and quantities] and supplements.
What other medical issues do you have? Medications?
Do you have hyper range of motion in joints?
Do you get cold easily?
Any one in your family have same build as you?
Do you eat sea food, use iodized salt, have iodine in your vitamins?
How do you react to major stress?[/quote]
well that’s a long story
my diet: variety of meats, mostly pork (cause it’s cheap), eggs, veggies, fruit, whey protein, good stuff mostly. i took these supplements for about a month before testing:D3(3-5X400IU),2x Silymarin(milk thistle), omega 3 (3x; Dietpharm EPA 180mg, DHA 120mg),Ca-Mg-Zn(3x;KAL High Potency)
took milk thistle cause bilirubin (bilirubin 30.5 umol/l ref:3-20)seemed high last time i checked my blood, so just in case…also just a wiff of alcohol was alot for me at the time. was also too sensitive to caffeine. so it got better after taking milk thistle for a while.
i have some kind of gastritis, never checked for it really, but i have to avoid stress and certain foods (probably helicobacter plyori - caused by years of eating at the university cafeteria)
i have poor circulation (my feet are often cold)
and my hair has been thinning since 2007. when depression got worse and when i had the worst insomnia ever. my hair never went back to normal. always falling out a bit more than it should.
as a kid i had frequent nose bleeds, and was always sick…but nobody really got into that too much.
one time i had huge wart problem, sine i way 14yo all the way to 19…they were all over my hands and feet.
maybe this information is useless, but i figure it’s some kind of proof of a very weak immune system.
i’m not that ripped skinny, veiny guy…if i’m in my prime my body looks something like this: http://www.google.hr/imgres?imgurl=http://image1.masterfile.com/getImage/NjAwLTAxNjE0MjE1bi4wMDAwMDAwMA%3DANd--O/600-01614215n.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.masterfile.com/stock-photography/image/600-01614215/Portrait-of-Boy-on-Beach&usg=__M9dQmuqgSNSclDsmwxGW59peDe4=&h=550&w=366&sz=41&hl=hr&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=VHl6zGBlZWIqsM:&tbnh=137&tbnw=97&prev=/images%3Fq%3D10%2Byo%2Bbeach%26um%3D1%26hl%3Dhr%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26biw%3D1366%26bih%3D601%26tbs%3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=1142&vpy=80&dur=5287&hovh=275&hovw=183&tx=102&ty=174&ei=ewYJTYztBZKHswbGjvSTAw&oei=ewYJTYztBZKHswbGjvSTAw&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=21&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0
…OK not literally, but almost
always felt that everybody else had better gains, faster, with less work, and 4X less food, plus they drank and smoked and stuff like that.
hyper range of motion? - like double jointed? not really, but i have problems with joints, especially my right shoulder, which i could pop out at will when i was 13-14, would just pull it down with muscles of the arm(i guess) and it would detach from the joint…can’t do it anymore, but is still a source of chronic aches and pains.
also, all the muscles seem to be shorter on the right side of the body.
i have problems maintaining a normal circadian rhythm, in winter especially.
my dad has a similar build, but he’s much taller, and has huge hands and feet (i don’t)…he seems to have more test too…but is kind of unstable, nervous person(i am the same way sometimes, but not that much)
he also has PTSP diagnosed…but i know he had the same problems before(the war i mean)…he’s an alcoholic, too.
my mother is also not perfect picture of health, she’s short, and kinda fat…unhealthy fat - skinny legs fat torso…she also had breast cancer…maybe i could even post some pictures of both of them later
i used to get so disappointed at times, because at university i was the guy who was always eating a ton of food and was still smaller than anybody else…i only got fatter a the midwaist (i never get that fat look, just that ‘‘kid with the protruding stomach’’ look), not much muscle…i was never one of those ‘‘i’m super skinny but i have abs’’ guys…couldn’t get big or ripped, while some people always had abs and just did a few pushups a day or stuff like that.
does sea salt account for anything? (salt from the Adrian sea)
i eat sea food sometimes, but always thought that i don’t need to worry about iodine because in Croatia we all consume sea salt produced in our country.
what is major stress?
i am known to oscillate in reactions and general mood.
hope i gave some good info.
i’ll try to do better next time
my spine maybe a bit hypermobile, not sure what qualifies
