There are millions of men around the world undergoing Doctor prescribed Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).
From my conversations with hundreds of them, many believe their current protocol is a bit lacking.
Whether it’s because their balance between T(Testosterone) and E (Estrogen) is off, or their Doctors don’t have the time or knowledge to help them with other lifestyle components (nutrition, mindset, strength training and fat loss), lots of guys are searching for answers.
There is no need to search any further. Starting in January my mentor Jim Brown and I are going to be working with select men on optimizing their TRT protocols.
Imagine a powerful and affordable solution to dial in your life from every conceivable aspect?
It doesn’t matter your age nor your current fitness level. All that matters is a strong desire to improve your life. (Reading the TRT MANual couldn’t hurt your cause).

Subject: Re: Metformin
My goals at 58 are not the same as they were when I was 18, back then all I could think about was getting as big and strong as I could and up to a point I managed to succeed, at my peak I managed a fairly reasonable 220LBS at a height of 6′ 1″ whilst maintaining a fairly low body fat percentage!
Anyway that was “way back when” and doesn’t really matter now, what does matter in my life now is to be able to maintain my health and fitness for as long as possible.
My current situation is I’ve lost a fair bit of muscle size 187LBS @ 6′ 1″ which is not too bad as I’m naturally quite lean and putting on/maintaining size was always a struggle, what I’m most concerned about is my loss of strength which I feel at my time of life is way more important than mere cosmetic issues of muscle size.
I know my Testosterone level is low because I’ve been tested and had it confirmed by my doctor, however as I pointed out to Jay my doctor says that although it’s on the low side he still thinks it’s within acceptable limits for someone of my age! Anyway back to my goals what I’d really like to be able achieve is to gain and maintain an increase in lean muscle of 10LBS whilst being as strong as humanly possible for someone my age, obviously I would hope to achieve this and upgrade my health, fitness and longevity at the same time.
(Jim) You will have an incredibly difficult time to do that with suboptimal test, time for a talk with your DR. Or get a new one.
-If you are naturally lean, it means you will need more carbs then the average bear.
-Being strong and gaining muscle are two different things but are related. What type of training are you doing now?
Now I know this sounds like a tall order which is why I have been reading books like THE EPI-PALEO RX by Dr Jack Kruse, THE NEW EVOLUTIONARY DIET by Arthur De Vany, THE PALEO SOLUTION by Robb Wolf etc, I was of the belief that these books held the answer to health, fitness and longevity because they’re based on the premise that this how and why “paleolithic man” was relatively disease free and that our health problems started with the onset of agriculture which shifted us away from our “hunter gatherer” lifestyle.
(Jim) Your goals are reasonable and achievable, but you need proper hormone levels to do it for one, training and nutrition have to be on point.
Lets think about “paleolithic man”?
–Not sitting on his ass all day, literally working and moving from birth.
–Not bombarded from zygote to grave with hormones, pesticides, chemicals, radio waves, what ever else.
–-Eating organic food…like not “whole foods” organic but REALLY organic.
–Not eating or having access to processed foods.
–No GMO crops
–I do agree that agriculture brought on issues with humans, but that gets into eating processed foods, and the rest of the issues. Even real not Montsano bastardized wheat was at one point healthy for you meaning, high fiber and very low glycemic response.
-I do advocate and practice the “controlled insulin lifestyle“. You are going to have to use carbs to gain and maintain muscle. One of the reasons why Metformin is so great because we can time carbs around workout then drop fasting glucose levels at night by 30%.
From most of what I’ve read it seems that carbohydrates are supposed to be a signal to our DNA that there is an abundance of energy available in our environment and it would be a great time to focus on reproduction so our genes may be passed on, but a lack of carbohydrate sends the opposite signal to our DNA that there is a lack of available energy in our environment and our genes should focus on repair and growth of our bodies and to postpone reproduction.
(Jim)That is not applicable. There is not a guy on the planet that has a favorable muscle to fat radio that isn’t using carbs intelligently.
–Insulin is THE MOST POWERFUL HORMONE in our body….I believe it is the cause of most disease and also responsible for either losing fat, gaining fat, losing muscle or gaining muscle…It all depends on how you control and use it.
–SO John in short. It is my humble belief you will need to intelligently use carbs to reach your goals and in doing so will not jeopardize your health. Again I don’t believe any of these authors are suggesting optimal performance on NO carbs but LOW carbs. So if we use 50 carbs a day (timed properly and from correct sources-not including trace carbs in vegetables) it would be considered ‘Low carb” but could be enough for you to recover properly and actually gain muscle while loosing or keeping body fat levels consistent. As well as maintaining an excellent A1C level, sensitivity to insulin and optimal vascular health.
Hope that helps a little.
Be the BEST YOU EVER!
