  • Steroids, Tennis and Carb Intake

    Hi all,

    I wasn't sure if I should put this in fitness or nutrition because this kind of encompasses both. I'm 5'1 and am about 115 lbs. I definitely want to lose some fat and gain muscle, but I'm a little confused as to what to do right now. About 2 weeks ago, my doctor put me on Danazol (a steroid) for endometriosis. He told me that if I didnt work out lots, I would gain weight, whereas if I worked out lots, I'd gain muscle (yay!). Since its finally nice weather, I've been getting out and playing tennis, usually about 1-2 hours each time I go, and I play almost every day. I've been trying to do some body weight exercises at home, but tennis is mainly my form of exercise. Reading Mark's info on the whole carb and ketosis thing, I've been trying to stay around 80 or less carbs a day, but with exercising lots, I thought I should increase my carb intake a little bit. Is that the right thing to do, or will that impact the whole steroid aspect of all this to gain muscle? Sorry if this isn't very clear.
