I should mention…I used the numbers from the iifym calculator and according to others in a fb iifym group I am on, they have the same calculations as you do, and I should currently be at around 1992 calories. However, I started at 1403, went up a little when I maybe hit a plateau to 1509, and am now back down to 1375 calories. I wasn’t educated about how to calculate my macros when I first began and just used that calculator on the iifym website. However, when I learned what I really should be at, it was too late, as I am in a weight loss challenge at work for 2 months and didn’t want to risk gaining any weight. So, another question for you…this contest ends tomorrow. I am planning on going up to what my calories should be, however, I am scared to go from 1375 to 1992 right away because I don’t want to gain weight. I know a little weight gain will happen because of adding more carbs/water weight, but I’m not quite sure how much to expect? Should I up my calories all at once, or maybe half at a time?
The Oxandrolone hormone does not carry any estrogenic related side effects. It does not aromatize and cannot lead to gynecomastia or water retention due to increases in estrogen levels. It further carries no progestin related activity, which again supports no estrogenic related side effects. Due to water retention being impossible with this steroid, this will decrease the risk of high blood pressure. Excess water retention can promote high blood pressure. Some steroids that do not aromatize can lead to high blood pressure, such as Trenbolone , but Anavar is rarely associated with this trait.
