    To clarify, reduce dosage and administer weekly. Most peeps do 100 mg a week.

      I think my treatment makes me more sensitive to water retention and the causes it can have from my diet.
      Because when I fast for a longer period, say 24h, it's absolutely better.
      I'll try some days without any sodium based sweeteners (What am I saying ? I'll ditch them forever ), will drink more water, and see how it goes
      That's probably just your body deflating from caloric restriction. You would have a similar effect by doing depletion workouts. Think:

      6X15 benchpress at light weight
      6X15 shoulder press at light weight
      6X15 leg press at light weight
      6X15 lateral raise at light weight
      6X15 leg extension at light weight
      6X15 seated leg curls at light weight
      6X15 curls at light weight

      Eat 1,000 calories that day with <50g carbs, then repeat the next day the exercises and calories.

      You'll drop around 8-10 lbs.

      I used to do it all the time and change my weight ~12 lbs in 3-4 days doing that crap. If it burns like hell, it's burning glycogen, and if you're keeping fat AND carbs very low with a massive calorie deficit, you'll burn through tons of water weight. But it is MISERABLE.
      Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

        I live in France and here Testosterone has to be prescribed by a doctor and can't be self injected.

        The bloat I'm experiencing, do you think it's sudden belly fat gain or water retention ?

          Drink distilled water only for a few days. You could also try drinking something with natural electolites like coconut water which is higher in potassium and magnesium as well as calcium. That might help to get rid of salt retention. Stay away from the artificial sweeteners. They are toxic to you.

            You can try drinking 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of water 2X day. If you can stand the taste (I like it, think it tastes like limeade) then it's worth a try!

              I just drank two glasses of coconut water (that puts me to somewhere around 2450/2500 kcal for today, do you think it's appropriate for someone of my age, 5'11'', who's not working out and has to develop his body through late puberty ?). As for the sugar content of it, it's like a piece of fruit am I right ?

              I'm getting very very bloated. I tried to drink more water, however it was a water which is really rich in minerals, especially magnesium and calcium. And it has a little bit of sodium

              What do you think of it ? It did nothing, if anything it made it worse.

                Ok if anyone's interested, I finally found out I have malnutrition edema like people suffering from anorexia nervosa on a daily caloric intake as high as 2400/2500 kcal. The only way for me to reduce it is to eat at least around 3000 kcal. STRANGE.

                    That sounds bad. I hope it's something you can work through. Do the doctors know what causes it? How you got it? etc....What deficiencies you have? There might be a way to figure out where it's occuring just by knowing what vitamins and minerals are deficient as they are all digested in different parts of the intestines and sometimes completely different organs.

                      .........And yes it is similar to eating a piece of fruit. I believe it has about 17 to 20 carbs per 16 to 20 oz. It should be beneficial for you to drink the coconut water more. You have alot of calories to use up it looks like now that you are needing 3000 per day. It's hard to get that many when eating primal.

                        How to Get Rid of Water Weight Drink eight to 10 glasses of water per day. Although edema is fluid retention, drinking plenty of clear fluids, such as water, will flush out toxins and excess fluid build up. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, excess water retention can cause kidney strain, therefore flushing the kidneys with water will relieve unnecessary damage due to continuous kidney strain.

                          I am interested as well. I routinely bloat up 10-15 lbs of water and it's a pain in the tush to get rid of. VLC does the trick but I have some pre existing thyroid issues so I can't maintain that for long without doing some damage. How did you find out about the deficiencies? Do you know the specifics? I never found drinking lots of fluids helps me and often seems to make things worse.
