Diet, less or more?
Im new here and to the whole roid lifting thing, I have a good friend thats been doing this stuff for years now and is very knowledgeable in the jist of it. But I have a little different situation then he did when starting and although he has advice on the question Id like some more input so here it is.
Ive been working out for a couple months now but just starting cycles and I keep reading how important it is to take in tons of calories and protein. Of course I understand that a skinny guy needs to take in lots of calories to add meat so was how my friend came to be his size, But I am an overweight person trying to slim down and build muscle and I have had people tell me that since I have alot of extra weight I dont need to eat as much cause my body will use what I have stored but Ive also had others tell me I still need to take in lots of protein and calories. So Id like to get some input from you folks figuring some of you might have some good advice on the subject.
For reference I was 355 pds last july I am down to 280 now with doing the atkins diet and walking. But that just isnt working anymore so Ive taking up lifting and just started cycle today to help give me a boost. So any help or advice is appreciated since its all new to me and I can use any info. Thanks guys

underhill, let me warn you first that steroids do not make you lose weight or even build muscle. Muscles dont come in a bottle. Sounds like with your stats you should still stay natural and diet more. What you did not mention was how tall you are. At that weight introducing steroids into the system will raise coleserol, estrogen, blood pressure, and induce hormonal levels dramaticaly. If you have an obese problem you may be doing more harm than good right now and find yourself in the hospital.
Sounds to me you were on the right plan at what you were doing. Please stick to the plan. I know it is hard and discouraging to trim down and gain confidence in your appearance but the harder the work the more you will appreciate it. Just be careful my brother. Steroids is not what you think they are. If your buddy was so knowledgable he would be warning you this right now. I bet in one month time here you will out info your buddy by 10fold I gaurantee. I will make sure of that. Welcome to AR
