    Great idea to draw the BW after. I'll actually take a whole month off and stick to walking and lighter exercises such as yoga and simple core training.

    Will be back with results. Hopefully it can help another lost soul or two in the future.

    Thanks for now brother, peace!

    I've made a very interesting discover recently.

    Just a week ago I felt worse than ever, few days post leg workout. I had a fever for a day and my fatigue was unbearable even after my sudden cold. I started to believe that I must have a stage 3 cancer or something similar. I don't know anyone who eats healthier than I do.

    I started to think back to when I had energy spikes the last 2 months, what did I eat, what did I do?
    Last time I felt great for a few days was after having a dinner containing beef barbecue. The second time I felt great for a day was after a buffet where I ate like 1 pound of lean medium well beef.
    When I thought about this, during one of my worst days for months, I decided to order home a plate full of beef in the evening. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling like working. My brain was on fire. The next morning I woke up after only 7h of sleep literally jumping out of bed compared to the last 4 months where I have slept 7.5h-9h but still felt like i needed more. My libido also instantly went from like a 80 year olds to a 18 year olds.

    You probably already guessed it. Vitamin B12.

    Vitamin B12 is one of the those I haven't been checked for. I assumed there is no way I am deficient with the amounts of eggs and chicken I consume. However, it appears chicken doesn't always contain that much. Lean beef contains roughly 5x more B12 than chicken breast.

    Why am I deficient but not my friends who eat almost only chicken meat? Perhaps my body doesn't absorb it as good?

    The biggest question I am left with is:
    Can a prolonged B12 deficiency lead to hard stress on the body?

    In that case, it can explain why my cortisol is high and therefore why my immune system and bioavailable T are low. Perhaps this is why my entire body is crashing after a single leg workout?

    I am now eating a piece of beef daily and so far so good. However after playing volleyball the other day, I've been sick with fever again. I got rid of the fever quite quickly, and I am sitting here writing this, still sick but I have no brainfog whatsoever. I have more energy now being sick than I had before implementing beef in my diet, how cool is that?

    Are you a vegetarian?

    Ok, so when are you getting your B12 tested? Step one before any further testing imho. Low B12 can lead to pernicious anemia which is treatable with OTC oral B-12. Personally I've used Jarrow Brand Methyl B12 @ 5k mcg daily. Methyl is the best absorbed type of B12. You can also buy it and self inject if so inclined. Naturally, I'd try the OTC version first.

    Very interesting Free T. Be nice if this were the remedy.

    Not unless vegetarians eat chicken and eggs :P

    I'm not sure if there is any point in checking my levels now that I am consuming beef and started to feel okay. I assume the test results would just come back normal, right?

    I picked up some Methyl from Jarrow, cheers. Perfect for days when there's no beef around .

    Well, assumably so but you don't want them to high either. Always good to know where you land. Maybe after some time throw it into future blood work. Man I hope this simple fix does it for you!

    Thank you, really. I'll take an autoimmune disease such as pernicious anemia any day over not knowing what is causing me to feel so horrible. I've lost about 20 pounds last month, mostly water and muscles. I am even less defined than before. I miss the gym a lot .

    You'll get through it. In your line of work it's all about discipline so just keep applying it here like you've been and you'll resolve it.
