    Starving

    Since starting TRT a little over 3 weeks ago, I've been STARVING. I've always lifted heavy and have been able to lift a bit heavier since on test but, man, I'm HUNGRY. Trying to eat good stuff.

    I'm guessing this is my body growing in response to the working out and extra test in my body?

    Anyone else notice this?

    I definitely noticed an increase in appetite once I started TRT. (I use Axiron.)
    I believe it is a direct function of the increased testosterone levels .

    Just speculating, but I think a lot is psychological, but what was said above this is a good thing. Eat clean, and watch your lifts take off

    I assure you it's not psychological. I'm HUNGRY. I'm a guy who can eat but I'm not hungry all of the time like that. Even when eating little meals throughout the day, I'm still hungry.

    Yeah, I'm trying to get back to eating clear(er). I had done well for a while there and lost all motivation (part of the reason I looked into TRT). Now I'm motivated again, feels good.

    I was going to the gym 4-5 times a week just because I had rather than because I wanted to. I got in and out as quickly as possible. Now I look forward to going--going in about a half an hour--and want to do more than I was before (I was doing the bare minimum to maintain). Now I'm looking to grow again. It it weren't for a bicep problem I'm having, it would be all good in the gym.

    I'm back to not keeping a bunch of bad food around the house. Otherwise, I'd be eating it ALL! I have no willpower when it comes to food. That's why I'm big but too much fat on my body.

    I'm right there with you. I had been working around an injury myself. This is the second FULL STRENGTH workout week and I'm feeling really good. Appetite has opened up though. Keep at it brother.

    Wouldn't it be the combo of your muscle and metabolism instead of test?

    The test is allowing me to work harder and (hopefully) starting to build more muscle as I've been lifting heavier.

    Ya but its still muscle and metabolism. And besides on hrt your only in the normal range. Before you had low-t problems is this how you normally were?
