Maybe in general, the average male has less test because of obesity, shitty lifestyle and diet, etc. I really, really doubt that we (men) on average have a quarter the test of our grandfathers.

2018-02-16 15:12:38 UTC  

Of course there are exemptions

2018-02-16 15:12:57 UTC  

People are fatter and doing more sedentary work, eating way more carbohydrates and less saturated fats and protein

2018-02-16 15:13:11 UTC  

Yeah exactly @Deleted User

2018-02-16 15:13:20 UTC  

Agreed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

2018-02-16 15:13:50 UTC  

People who don't workout and eat right might have a portion of their grandfather's test but I think most of us in here are doing okay.

2018-02-16 15:15:03 UTC  

If you're working out, eating right, getting adequate sleep, flirting with women and competing with other males in some form you're probably fine

2018-02-16 15:16:54 UTC  

Yeah it was meant to apply men in general. I will keep looking for the study that says quarter of T levels

2018-02-17 12:06:03 UTC  

Most inexpensive T check I've found.

2018-02-17 20:10:44 UTC  

Have you tried it? @Reinhard Wolff

2018-02-18 06:48:15 UTC  

Yeah, I used this service.

2018-02-18 06:48:40 UTC  

You order online, and then you bring in the paperwork they sent you to a LabCorp.

2018-02-18 06:48:52 UTC  

The whole process was very simple.

2018-02-18 06:49:16 UTC  

Donโ€™t try to drive afterwards though

2018-02-18 06:49:36 UTC  

I felt fine for a few minutes and then blacked out

2018-02-18 07:03:06 UTC  

Long but well worth the watch

2018-02-18 07:03:29 UTC  

*cue passionate argument*

2018-02-18 08:17:32 UTC  

I went to the downtown Birmingham labcorp once for a blood test to see if I was the best match for a marrow donation

2018-02-18 08:17:38 UTC  

There were some uh

2018-02-18 08:17:42 UTC  

Interesting people there

2018-02-22 08:17:18 UTC  

I need some advice for my diet plan. I used an online meal plan calculator to find my goals and this is what I got

Calorie Goal: 3709
Protein Intake Goal: 324
Fat Intake Goal: 57
Carbohydrate Intake Goal: 475

Any advice on reaching this? What are your favorite protein dense foods?

2018-02-22 16:41:45 UTC  

Peanut butter is ridiculously calorie and protein dense

2018-02-22 16:41:54 UTC  

I eat some out of the jar at my desk at work

2018-02-22 17:28:10 UTC  

High carb diets literally run your body on sugar. Healthy fats should be your primary fuel.

2018-02-22 17:31:35 UTC  

God damn that's a lot of calories

2018-02-22 17:31:40 UTC  

Power bulk?

2018-02-22 17:41:20 UTC  

@missliterallywho I disagree. If you're eating most of your carbs post/pre workouts and your carbs being "Good", I've had a lot better approach with the high carb approach with my training.

2018-02-22 17:42:24 UTC  

@Suomi Stronk you're still a slave to sugar tho

2018-02-22 17:43:11 UTC  

Your body won't burn its own fat when you run out of sugar, like it's supposed to

2018-02-22 17:43:43 UTC  

Fuel with fat, you'll always have fuel on hand, even when food is unavailable

2018-02-22 20:13:24 UTC  

@BigBadSaxon - ID I put my stats into a meal planner and told it I was trying to lose fat and put on muscle and choose the x2 protein option, figured that would lead to faster muscle growth

2018-02-22 22:08:31 UTC  

I'd forego internet calculator and read some articles about how the body processes macronutrients

2018-02-22 23:12:19 UTC  

If you are trying to lose fat, 3709 calories is probably a no-go

2018-02-22 23:12:39 UTC  

There are a lot of good carbs too but shit that's a lot

2018-02-22 23:18:55 UTC  

Nobody wants to hear it but fasting is the most efficient, healthiest way to lose fat

2018-02-22 23:19:36 UTC  
2018-02-24 20:43:47 UTC  

It all depends on what your goals are. If you're concerned with athletic performance, you need glycogen.

2018-02-24 20:44:01 UTC  

Otherwise, low-carb is probably best, particularly if you're trying to lose weight.

2018-02-25 04:45:58 UTC  

I do know that you need carbohydrates to burn fat in a healthy way

2018-02-25 15:44:43 UTC  

Do you?
