I can appreciate what you are saying. The low carb thing was suggested as a shortcut to drop the fat and it definitely is working out great. I do miss the carbs. And I have a vacation I'm taking next weekend so I'll be back to eating for a week. The caloric deficit is what I plan to do after cutting a bit more. Its the only way to maintain after low carb. While I may have alot to learn, this is working. I do 5 low carb days below 30 grams and weekends are a free for all. But I try to behave moderately at least. I also agree I'd have more energy if I had more carbs. What would you change if you where in my spot? I probably have a bit less fat that your pre cycle pic. And my stomach feels rock hard underneath my fat. And trust me. I've had way more fat. Before my Pre first cycle I was a fat man in the making at 220lb. I was soft all over. And in my opinion everything came together at exactly the right time in life. I'm 203lb now and my body is completely built differently.
There have been numerous studies done by some of the most respected in the scientific and medical community regarding the mental effects of steroids before and after use. In each study, the results have shown the effects on mental behavior are so small they cannot be measured. Further, during the steroid hearings leading to the original . Steroid Control Act of 1990, even the AMA, FDA, NIH, DEA and several others reported there was no evidence anabolic steroids had any significant impact on mental behavior. What does this all tell us, what can we gather? In short, this tells us the idea of Roid Rage is a myth, and a smoking gun that actually provides nothing but smoke.
