    No I don't track it, but I mean if anyone asked me I probably know what I'm eating within about 200-300 calories... i just find it more enjoyable to eat when/what I want since I'm not worried about gaining fat.

    Weight gain going well, still slow, but recently after making some food swaps my appetite finally kicked in again. I'm hoping for another 6-8lb gained by end of year.

    I'm not weighing every day or anything tho... usually just pick a random 3-day cluster where I'm curious about it and then average those three days and from there. I've become pretty apt at measuring my level of intake/surplus based on how I feel.

    Hit 180x5 for my first 3 sets today, ended up bumping down to 175x5 on the last set though because I felt form degrade slightly on the last rep of my third set.

    Definitely could have gotten through to the final set but want to avoid injury at all cost!

    Really pleased about it... squats have been going up and feeling awesome lately.

    Hey buddy, I've read through the whole thread and I've been keeping up on your progress over the last month or so. Keep up the good work! You're truly an inspiration coming from a similar situation.

    Mild improvement on OHP today, got two sets of 85lb for 5, the remaining 2 were down with 80.... I think some of that was due to simply being fatigued from the squat gains yesterday, BUT the workout felt awesome.

    I'm loving using the coconut water + BCAA/EAA mix during training... just enough of a sugar boost without tasting too syrupy

    What brand of coconut water? I usually use mine for soluble vitamin mixes when I'm feeling down health wise.

    it's this weird froo-froo 'harmless harvest' brand... it's pink... kinda weird. I bought it as a one-off, usually I don't buy the high end kind.

    Oh I know which brand you're talking about. Gotta respect not name dropping it so they don't start invading the board. There's only a few brands I buy that taste good all year round. I don't drink it apart from when I'm feeling sick and need something good to mix up some active forms of vitamin powders, like I said. I think Erik was using them for post ride drinks mixed with water or blended with fruit at one point about 4-5 years back but I'm probably confusing him with someone else, which is more likely.

    I usually go with some homemade lemonade using a half lemon, water, 1-2 tsp of sugar, a bunch of stevia, half teaspoon or more of salt for a post workout drink. If I skip it I feel like **** the entire day.

    Yeah the Taste Nirvana brand (green glass bottle) is my favorite. Very rich flavor but not exactly cost effective. I just like the taste and the fact that it has potassium etc is a nice bonus.

    It's probably cheaper to buy a non additive coconut water from a club store or something.

    After 8 months of steadily gaining some weight back, my testosterone is now in normal range!! It was a MASSIVE improvement... even my WBC and RBC got higher (though they still need some work).

    Total test went from 179 all the way to 400!!

    Free test went from a horrible 3.54 up to 8.24!

    This is going to be a good week

    That is awesome to hear man! How are you feeling overall compared to 8 months ago? How is the libido/energy/sleep going?

    Again, thanks for the inspiration and I'm hoping for similar results soon!

    Feeling much better but still a long way to go... but zero chance im stopping now.

    In fact, im probably going to ramp up my intake just to be on the safe side.

    Libido is much much better, energy is improved BUT still not to where I want it to be.

    Sleep is also getting steadily better as my mental stress and overall energy has gotten that much better.

    Overall, life continues to go in a good direction... im committed to gaining at least twice the amount this year I did last year and FULLY recovering my lab work.. in fact, if I could gain 30-40lb+... that'd be AWESOME...

    Still shocked by these results... cannot believe I doubled my test... crazy!

    Though I replied yesterday but I'm glad you're doing better, Adam. I vaguely remember you telling me about what was going on and I'm happy you stuck to your guns and went through with recovery. Here's to more weight going up in 2020, both the scale and your lifts.

    Merry Christmas.

    WELL damn it's been a while since I wrote anything here.

    Everything is going awesome.

    Sleep is great. Energy is great...

    I'm approaching 200lb on squats for rep work...

    I finally surpassed 135lb for reps on Bench...

    OHP is now easily over 85lb for rep work...

    My joints, mood, libido, all factors just continue to improve....

    Still lean, but i'm gaining steadily and I feel much freer around food and exercise in general...

    2020 is going great
