Describe diet and provide more info as per advice for new guys sticky.
-I barely watched my diet before starting TRT. I basically “dirty bulked” for a long time. Now it is very clean. Getting about 250g protein a day from good sources. Greek yogurt, fish, steak, and turkey. Using brown rice, yams, and Ezekiel bread for carbs. Taking fish oil, peanut butter, and CLA’s for fat. Plenty of veggies now.
You need to read those stickies and please note everything that I ask for in a post.
-I will read stickies tonight! Thank you. Any further advice appreciated!
