As the title say, I would really need some suggestions. I’m currently in my 8th week of being on a pharma grade and I’ve got to confess that my body is really taking in an awesome shape! I’ve made some pics before and now I see myself after 8 weeks and I’m a lot much more vascular, definitely much more in shape to my body and muscles, that can be easily noticed. I’m also on primo and test with a little bit of deca as well as I have just started with it one week ago. All in all is good, however I have only noticed that I’m struggling a little bit to keep my weight up and this gives me a hard time. I literally need to eat a lot much more carbs in order to achieve this, however I don’t really love it as I’m usually trying to stay away from carbs (guessing no need to explain reasons). But still, I’m open to suggestions, opinions and so on and so forth and that’s why I’m in need for some help right now on what to do and better said, as the title say, to help me in finding out what to eat. For those wondering, if this changes anything – I’m 5.11 at 228. My veins are so *big* now that they cannot be unseen, however I really love this!August 8, 2018 at 7:08 am #3991ChestnutParticipant
By reading my post for the first time this might sound strange to you, I understand, however, in case you are currently in a “growth phase” and you’re currently having as you stated “a hard time to keep your weight up and you’re struggling with this” then why would the very simple answer be: eat more food than you do? Sounds easy to my opinion.
However, please, you’ve got to understand and realize that scale weight definitely does not automatically means that you’ve got lean mass as weight and lean mass, as you know, often are by far not the same. With this being said I just want to say that hopefully, you’re using more than this to gauge your progress. Good luck!August 8, 2018 at 7:36 am #3992LoerronRParticipant
Yep, pretty much as it was mentioned earlier… you’ve just got to eat more for gaining weight and not struggling to at least keep your weight up. For getting a more specific and detailed answer then I can say that you can figure out how much you are currently eating and then simply increase it by 10% or so on the training days since I do understand why the so simple answer as *eating more* might not sound so good for you. But try this method and follow this method for like 2 weeks and then start evaluating, observing, noticing etc. and see if you’re doing it right or there’s still something to change. If you’re struggling *keeping your weight* and you only want this (no more gains) then look at the result. Are you putting on weight? Drop to 5%. Are you still struggling keeping it? bump another 10%. But my guessing would be that you’re trying to put on weight and if you’re going to put weight after the first 10% then I personally wouldn’t change that. However if the weight increase is going to stop then simply go up by another 10%! People are doing a lot of mistakes here trying to get mass, but I personally would much rather have a slow LBM gain than just a lot of weight – as many people tend to do. Indeed, weight can be something completely different, it is a largely irrelevant factor so keep this in consideration.August 9, 2018 at 5:29 am #3993MarkuSParticipant

Well, you said you’re guessing there’s no need to explain the reasons. Ummm… there’s something that makes me think I’m going to be regretting asking this but… why, exactly, are those reasons that you are staying away from carbs?August 9, 2018 at 6:18 am #3995
Well, I’ve always tried to stay away from carbs as much as I could and I always had a good timing out of it with good success. I’ve always followed a regimen of very high protein and low carbs so I’ve been following this regimen for a while now.
But as I said, I thought the reasons are obvious – not getting fat by eating those carbs. I’ve always been paranoid of getting fat and that I WILL get fat by eating lots of them. but as much as you can guess, through this regimen of very high protein but very low carbs it is very hard to get a lot of calories. From the research I’ve done (and I’ve done a lot of research on this) 3 filet mignon steaks are equal in a large slice of pizza calorie wise. And then there are people eating a whole pizza and fries afterwards. I’ve always thought that a single pizza is so full of carbs and calories that it would be enough to keep me a long time.
Anyway, in the end, I’m the one here asking questions so I do appreciate any of your help and I’m open for suggestions (otherwise I wouldn’t be here), so, could you please advise me? Do you think that I could get away with more carb foods in the time that I’m on HGH and not getting fat? As I said, I’m paranoid over this. I see guys with belly and I’m getting tremors. So, I’m currently searching for recommendations and advises on what I need to add to my diet, to your opinion. Thanks!August 15, 2018 at 6:53 am #4007MarkuSParticipant
That’s the exact answer that I expected I will get and as I said, I pretty much regret asking this.
But as I said, I thought the reasons are obvious – not getting fat by eating those carbs. I’ve always been paranoid of getting fat and that I WILL get fat by eating lots of them.
I’m tired explaining this to everybody so please try your best to understand me the best possible way… Carbs do NOT make you FAT! They never did and I have no idea why people got idea and where they’ve got this stupid theory!

So, once and forever, the answer to your question, as it was said from the first answer to your post – is extremely easy. Do you want to get bigger? Then eat more calories. Do you want to get smaller? Then eat less calories. That’s super easy.August 17, 2018 at 1:28 pm #4012SCANASTParticipant
Other people suggesting to eat more food are definitely right because as simple as it sounds that’s true – want to get smaller eat less, want to get bigger eat more. However, you seem to understand that this doesn’t mean that it is the time to start having a junk food diet.August 17, 2018 at 1:33 pm #4014
Well, ok, thank you guys a lot for all your recommendations and ideas, I really appreciate it all. I will take them and I will start consuming a bit more carbs from now on. I’m going to add one meal per day with carbs and I’m going to be evaluating myself and notice the changes in one month. Do you think that this is going to be ok? It does seems to me that the HGH has changed things and in turn I need to change my diet now.August 17, 2018 at 1:49 pm #4015SuchaterParticipant
I really do not see what’s the problem here, you’re too paranoid to be honest. That’s because you’re going to have quite a hard time to get fat in the time that you’re taking pharma GH so there’s really nothing to worry about this. The stuff is burning through the calories and so, you can eat more, but you are still not going to get fat while on it. of course, as said, by getting on a junk diet this might change, but I’m talking if you’re going to be eating clean. I have noticed this on myself as I have to increase the carbs at least a little bit in the time that I’m running with the GH and even so, I’m still getting hungry nearly constantly and yet, I’m still not getting fat. So just don’t worry and everything’s going to be ok.September 4, 2018 at 6:50 am #4029ChestnutParticipant
To be honest, I do understand what you’re trying to say, I mean, I get the spirit of what you’re trying to imply and yet, in reality, this is all a little bit differently, at least according to my experience I’ve got with them.
Yes indeed, without any doubts, GH tends to increase the TDEE and yes indeed, the GH does tend to change the body’s eating preferences. And yet, I’ve got to say that it is not as hard to gain weight while on it as you explained up there. in fact, it is still very easy to gain adipose tissue while on it and that’s even if you’re going to be running a significant dose of HGH on a daily basis. The way you explained it sounds that you can eat whatever (nearly) you want and regardless of how much and yet – getting fat is hard, especially if running a high dosage, something that’s definitely not true. In the end, it all just comes down to the energy balance you have.
