How long after dropping Crixivan...
Oct 30, 2003

Can I expect the belly to start fading, if ever. What can I do to help it?

Starting Reaetaz, viread, norvir, and combivir. Also androgel, adding deca rather than oxandrin after a month due to cost. Supplementation is per Medibolics.

Thanks Brock

Response from Mr. Vergel

It is very difficult to say. Crixivan really increases insulin resistance a lot. But studies with Reyataz have also shown increases in visceral fat. I would work out with cardio at least 4 times a week for 30 min (you need to break a sweat) and 3 times a week for an hour with weights. Keep your sweets/white flour to a minimum. Take 2000 mg a day of Carnitine also. Of course, talk to your doctor about all this!


desperate need of suppliment
need your input please :-)
