    What advice can you give us older bodybuilders about HRT?

    What is your current HRT and has it been as effective for you as you hoped?

    Dear Dave,
    I just finished reading the 180 pages of your Q&A in the forum, just to find out that you no longer reply there (for a while by now), and that this is the place to ask. Good that I caught the RXMuscle notice on time! Thank you for that knowledge imparted. It shows your true love for our sport and way of living.
    I have a “general” and a” particular” question.
    1) The general one: At some point in the said forum you state that someone could take 200ml/week of test indefinitely. This was at the time addressed for an individual in his late 30s who reports a constant feeling of tiredness. This is extremely interesting. It could certainly be an untapped mine of opportunities for accomplishing a general sensation of well-being (not necessarily for building muscle) for someone say in his mid-40’s who regularly trains. I was wondering if you can expand a little on this; e.g., whether one would eventually need a PCT anyway (say after 3 years of uninterrupted use), why not more are doing it, etc.
    2) The specific one: For someone who has an intellectual kinda job (e.g. a college philosophy professor who needs to be extremely sharp 3-6 hours a day), the first 2 weeks of your keto diet seems to be particularly hard for mental clarity and alertness –I mean, BEFORE the brain gets re-wired into ketosis, after which both clarity and alertness are reported. Question: Is the keto diet still the way to go for this type of individual? Should perhaps weight-training be substituted by cardio-only in the morning during these first two weeks? Just to have it clear, the issue is not enduring these first two weeks, that’s doable. The issue is enduring these first two weeks with a clear and alert mind (teaching, marking, writing, etc.). I bet that the keto diet is not the exclusive signature of a blue-collar lifestyle.
    Thank you Dave!

    Googled "can you create the sex of your child?"

    Today, technologies are available to allow couples to choose the children's gender a little more reliably. But some couples and gender selection companies still stand by some natural methods that, they say, can increase a couple's odds of conceiving a child of their preferred gender. Below is a list of technologies and natural methods used by people who want to choose their child's sex.

    Technologies

    Preimplantation Genetic Testing: Using in vitro fertilization techniques, doctors remove eggs from the woman and fertilize them with sperm in the lab to create embryos. After three days, the embryos' chromosomes are analyzed — a Y chromosome signals it's a boy. Doctors then implant an embryo of the desired sex into the mother. If the pregnancy takes, this is a very reliable, though controversial method of choosing gender.

    MicroSort: MicroSort was first used in clinical trials in 1993 and became available to all couples in 1996. The Fairfax, Va.-based company bases the technique on the fact that X-carrying sperm weigh more than Y-carrying sperm. A sperm sample is stained with a fluorescent dye that binds with the chromosomes. Since the X chromosome is larger, it absorbs more dye and, therefore, glows brighter under the illumination of a laser. An electrode then assigns a positive charge to those X chromosomes that glow brighter and a negative charge to those Y chromosomes that glow less brightly. The charged sperm are tugged by their charges into separate containers and couples can select one or the other for fertilizing the woman's egg.

    Ericsson Method: This technique is based on the idea that Y-chromosome-carrying sperm, which create boys, are lighter and faster swimmers than X-chromosome-carrying sperm, which create girls. Sperm is poured over a viscous fluid. As the sperm swims downward, scientists capture those sperm that reach the bottom first. Due to the faster swimming rate of Y-carrying sperm, these are assumed to be Y-bearing sperm. The X-carrying sperm (supposedly made up of slower swimmers) is collected closer to the top of the sample. Companies claim a success rate of 70-75 percent, but critics say these results have not been repeated and aren't reliable.

    Spin Method: In another method based on the heavier weight of X-chromosome-carrying sperm, semen is spun in a centrifuge. The heavier, X-carrying, or girl-producing sperm collect at the bottom of the test tube, while Y-carrying sperm collect in the middle. Some companies claim an 80 percent success rate, but such results haven't been repeated.

    Some of the most popular natural methods to choose a baby's gender were developed by Landrum Shettles, a U.S. doctor who believed that the slight differences in X and Y sperm could be taken advantage of by choosing specific behaviors that may influence which sperm reaches the egg first during conception. Many books and home gender selection kits borrow from these ideas. Below are some basic explanations of some of Shettles' principles, which remain largely unproven in the scientific community.

    Diet: To conceive a boy, the mother should consume foods high in sodium and potassium, and minimize her intake of calcium and magnesium. To conceive a girl, the mother should consume foods high in calcium and magnesium and avoid foods that are high in sodium and potassium.

    Timing: To have a boy, the Shettles technique recommends having sex no earlier than one day before and up to one-half day after ovulation. To have a girl, he suggests having sex no later than two and one-half to three days prior to ovulation.

    Acidity: Some methods, including the home kit, GenSelect, claim that douching with an acidic or alkaline solution can tip the balance to having a boy or girl. The idea is a girl is more likely to be conceived in an acidic environment, while boys are more likely to be created in an alkaline one. Therefore, douching with vinegar (or specifically devised acidic solutions) is recommended for those wanting a girl, while douching with baking soda (or specifically devised alkaline solutions) is suggested for those wanting a boy.

    Hi Dave,
    Love your show and your scientific approach to nutrition and training. In all your videos I have watched, you claim that insulin is the only hormone that can store fats into fat cells.
    According to Lyle McDonald & Martin Berkhan (www.leangains.com) that is not the case.

    According to them:
    a) eating protein produce insulin
    b) fat stores itself with tremendous efficiency without insulin, due to a nifty little thing called acylation-stimulating protein (ASP).

    What is your take on that?

    PS
    Will you attend FIBO in Cologne this year?

    Best regards

    I started weight training back in 1991 (18 yo), and I followed same training program as everybody else.... training 4 day/week, 10-15set/muscle once a week, 6-12 reps.
    I made my gains first 5 years of training (I'm natural from the start, never used PED) and the last 15 years I haven't progressed that much.
    6 months ago I made a 180 degrees turn. I started full body workouts 3x week, 4-5set/muscle and 5-8reps. I have made better gains last 6 moths, than I had last 15 years!
    I have hit PB on all my lifts and look better than ever at 42 years old. (6'2" [email protected]%BF)

    What happened?! Is the full body workouts way to go for natural bodybuilder? Your thoughts?

    Hi Dave,

    I was looking on youtube at a vid by bios3training and he explained there used to be 2.5 mg tabs of anavar back in the day produced by a mexican pharmacy, you would only have to take a couple and you would see great results. These days anavar mostly comes in 10 mg tabs and they are required to be taken in much larges dosages (50-100mg common).

    What does this say about the quality of anavar these days? Is it filled up with other ingredients? Should you be worried?
