Approved Log My First Test Cycle Log

1. No you don't need liver support on a moderate test only cycle.

2. Whats with the diet? Are you running a cycle to bulk and gain muscle? Or are you cutting.

You will need to eat more.

Your macro split is fine. But you need to up the cals.

@HybridLabs while you make some valid points, other points aren't based on science.

1) You do need liver support, moderate testosterone dose or not (btw he said he's not even cycling), organ and liver support is a must when using something like anabolic steroids. Steroids are toxic even at TRT doses, but, to be fair, eating too many charburgers or drinking from plastic water bottles is also toxic. Therein is the positives of being a bodybuilder, we have the supplements like TUDCA Milk thistle and more to combat our possible side effects.

Studies have show anabolic steroids, even injectables can potentially cause liver, organ injury.

AAS use is closely linked to hepatotoxicity and serious hepatic conditions such as cholestasis, peliosis hepatis, and benign and malignant hepatic tumors, as well as steatohepatitis and dyslipidemia with multiple studies supporting a causal association
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9331524/

Androgenic and anabolic steroids have been implicated in four distinct forms of liver injury: transient serum enzyme elevations, an acute cholestatic syndrome (“bland cholestasis”), chronic vascular injury to the liver (peliosis hepatis) and hepatic tumors including adenomas and hepatocellular carcinoma
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK548931/#:~:text=Hepatotoxicity,including adenomas and hepatocellular carcinoma

Most important part of study:
These adverse events have been most closely linked with the C-17α alkylated testosterones, although tumors have also been associated with unmodified and esterified testosterone preparations.

2) On the diet angle, we agree completely. His low protein diet is unacceptable to someone trying to prepare for a cycle.

Totally agree. I think any time you are using things that are hard on your body, in one way or another, the only responsible course of action is to take countermeasures to mitigate the damage you are doing. We are trying to do win the long game, not the short game. I was a little skeptical of TUDCA, but being on it for a few months dropped my ALT and AST from high normal to low normal. I was extremely pleased.

The macros look exactly as I would expect from a nutritionist. They aren’t going to help or hurt to any great degree. I think it is odd that anybody would suggest to have added sugar to a diet. Whether you are a high or low carb type person, I think most people agree that getting your sugars naturally is way better than adding them.
 
very nice layout. maybe structure your diet more organized
 
I'd like to clarify few things.
1. I have not started the test cycle yet. It is on hold till I finalize my job change.
2. I did not start following the nutritionist diet yet. She made a suggestion that I am losing muscle mass because my carb intake was low and my body was trying to make energy out of the proteins.

Why are you doing more weight on pulldowns than squats?
I trained less on squats/lower back in the early days because I just couldn't. In 2020, the doctors diagnosed the cause of lower back pain as spinal tuberculosis. I took antibiotics for 10 months to recover. Infection is gone but the damage to my spine is permanent. This is the maximum I can squat now without shaking : )

That makes sense. Might the hip belt machine be ok? It loads to the hips
 
. She made a suggestion that I am losing muscle mass because my carb intake was low and my body was trying to make energy out of the proteins.
where did this nutritionist get her degree from a cereal box? does she think muscle mass should count as water retention?

@djmac4u your nutritionist is very bad. high protein = positive nitrogen balance = muscle gains, Carbs aren't related directly to muscle gains, but protein is.

@djmac4u your diet now is moderate protein high carbs and not enough healthy fats.
you should replace pea protein with egg or milk protiens
cut carbs at night and increase protein
 
get a new coach we can help you
go with high protein higher fats too

Indirectly for sure. Your body can use protein for energy
