pls help me to gain weight
Jun 19, 2003

i,m a 23 yr old male. my height is 5ft 11 inch,weight is just 52 kg. last 3 months back i've started taking deca durabolin 100 mg. i've been injected this steroid for 3 times in a period of 3 months (100 mg each). but i'm not able to gain weight. pls advise me about the treatment to be effective with low side effects.

Response from Mr. Vergel

100 mg/month is not enough. The minimum dose should be 200 mg/week of deca durabolin plus 100-200 mg/week of testosterone, for 12 weeks. Keep your protein intake up, your sugar down, eat lost of vegetables/fruits, and work out 3 times a week. More information in Built to Survive, Nelson
