There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.
Kim, ME TOO! For three years I have tried everything. I also am hypothyroid and on Nature Throid an NDT medication and although my endocrinologist is happy with the numbers that scale won't move. I have done eating clean, cleanses, chugging kale shakes, I went six months no flour, no sugar eating completely clean and basically went up and down five pounds - it is maddening. I even thought OK so maybe I'm eating too much healthy food and joined weight watchers where I weighed and measured all that healthy food and lost two pounds the first week. Thought it was a miracle only to step on the scale for the next few weeks loosing nothing and then gaining back the two. The only thing that has worked was I did intermittent fasting for a month and worked out 4X a week at the gym doing a mix of boot camp and alternating with 30 minutes of treadmill and another 30 of weights. After a month of starving and working out I lost 10 pounds but I could just not keep going fasting every day from dinner to dinner eating one meal a day. The calorie bank for most people is gossiple for me it's bulls$it. Nothing works but starving and eventually I cave. I feel hopeless and think my only hope is weight loss surgery. I am 5 '10 my ideal weight is 174. When this started three years ago I was about 215lbs I could not get under 200 no matter what I tried. I was doing crossfit three days a week and ONE day i weighed in at 199 but within a few days back up going from 200 -209. Now two years later I was at 230 got down to 215 and now it seems I can't get under that despite eating healthy and working out. I'm at a loss and again, I am thinking surgery is my only option. I have the disiplin and I've tried EVERYTHING. I challenge any wieght loss expert to work with me and learn what life is like with hypothyroidism (I also am anemic).
