Thank you for your reply.
I have read your web site extensively, downloaded the books, read them. All is excellent and extremely helpful. I have modeled my diet and have added the supplements that the web site and books recommends and it has been helpful, with a few exceptions. The Horny Goat Weed and the Ginseng seem to have a negative effect on me. What has worked the best for me:
Supplement Morning Evening
T-Bomb-II 3 3 Note: Sold at GNC
Pycnogenol 1 1 Note: GNC brand 50mg
L-Citrulline 2 2 Note: GNC brand 500mg & 500mg
Triple Fish Oil 2 2 Note: Nordic Natural Complete Omega 3-6-9
Pumpkin Seed Oil 1 1 Note: GNC brand
Saw Palmetto 2 2 Note: GNC brand and it also has the Zinc
Tri-Boron 1 Note: purchased at Whole Foods
Vitamin D3 1 1 Note: 5000iu - purchased at Whole Foods
Lycopene 1 Note: New Chapter brand Grape Seed
I sleep very well 7-8 hour/per night wake up refreshed usually on my own at 5am. I do not feel very stressed, I have good energy and far from depressed. My Vitamin D = 41.6 at the time of the test so I added the Vitamin D3 in the evening. They did not test for vitamin A or E
The 1960 is the year I was born, so I just turned 52. I have never smoked or used any drugs of any kind or alcohol. At one point (maybe as much as a year) I had 1-2 glasses of red wine 4-5 nights per week but it caused sexual performance problems and sleep apnea, so now it is 1-2 glasses of red wine 1 night per week (on date night).
I have been a competitive swimmer since I was 7 years old and still swim 2mi x 3 days per week (which is not over doing it based on my years of training). On the other 4 days I lift weights for 30min and run for 30min (~3mi).
I started having problems several years ago and concluded I need to lose weight, so as a typical guy, I cut out a soda or sweet per day and dropped weight. I was good for a while and then things started going south, so I lost more weight (cut out more sweets), then repeat and repeat. I have gone from 210lbs to 175-180lbs not much fat left but good muscle mass and tone. I didn’t relate to the whole sugar/carb problem until I read your web site.
Now that you know my whole life story, what would you recommend for me with the following levels:
Testosterone = 444 (on the low end of the test scale – 348-1197)
Free Test = 7.6 (on the low end of the test scale – 7.2-24.0)
Estrogens = 95 (on the high end of the test scale – 40.0-115.0)
Vitamin D = 41.6 (on the low end of the test scale – 30.0-100.0)
Sorry for the life story and thank you in advance for your opinion and help.
