Let me start with this ... in the past three years there have been four deaths in my immediate family. I have not dealt with this well and stopped exercising and starting eating garbage. Ironically, my 'weight' on a 6'3" frame has remained steady at 230 lbs, but I look like a pregnant stick figure (i'm turning 55 soon). I am on T (8 pumps androgel), hcg (250 x 3 days/week) 120 mgs of dessicated thyroid, 0.25 mgs of Arimidex 3 days a week (usually less). The major change to diet (started this week) has been to cut out anything with gluten/wheat. I only drink water and coffee (3 small cups in the morning before 11 a.m. then its just water the rest of the day). I am eating more cheese, nuts (almonds/walnuts), meat, eggs, fish, and some fruit (mainly apples) and veggies (mainly leafy greens). And I feel like absolute crap. I don't think I felt this bad sitting on the couch eating donuts. But my health has taken a real turn for the worse and I realize that I need to change my eating habits but this change has not had the desired effect. First symptom is like a low grade fever with headache -- I seldom get headaches. Second is absolutely zero energy. Third is hunger ... stomach growling, salivating, feel nauseous until I eat something. And I'm eating more now than when I was eating garbage. Getting blood tests done in the next week ... will have a better picture of hormonal and other health then. I'm just wondering if I'm missing something here -- diet? Supplements? ?????
