Regarding your recent x post on what to do if skinny fat, BowTiedOx offers different advice for skinny fat. He says to eat at a caloric maintenance or 200-300 cals above TDEE. Curious on your thoughts and which advice is optimal. Why do you say to cut to single digit bf% and why specifically on keto?

What type of training split would you suggest for a newbie coming off a cut?

Hey, i know you do a lot of research on reversing balding. I was curious if you know of any supplements / ways to reverse the hair darkening (lol) that can come with age, or what causes it. I noticed my hair is much lighter than it used to be, I am getting more sun and overall less stressed than i was in college/corporate work, so I assume it's something with cortisol? Would be neat to know more, and something nobody seems to have asked before lol

I have 20mg of MK-677 and was planning to try it by taking 5mg one time (4 total times) over the course of a couple weeks 1 hour pre-workout to see how it affects me. However, I've heard if used improperly or if nutrition isn't solid it can contribute to a growth in resistance to insulin. Are there any precautions I should take nutritionally or daily routine-wise to make this its most effective? Right now trying to gain some weight and would be using it to aid in that.

What’s a high level explanation of how anabolics help build muscle? Is it all about increasing nutrition partitioning? So if lifting weights and in a caloric surplus, the enhanced lifter partitions the calories torwards muscle more efficiently versus the natural lifter?

I live in New England this time of the year the sun is rare! I’ve heard great things about Vitamin D supplementation but not sure if the hype is real. Is it worth supplementing? If so, can you recommend the best Vitamin D supplement on the market as well as one which is more economical? Thanks!

My recent blood work shows a high total T4 and free T4. Could this be caused by bromantane or sabroxy use?

Best strategies to raise free testosterone? My total is around 500-600 but free is 9-10 normally which is at the low end of reference range. My diet/sleep/workouts are very solid, and I take tongkat, shilajit from nootroopics depot as well as L-carnitine, magnesium, vit d/k, b vitamin complex. Anything to add to supplementation/routine/lifestyle that would be a difference maker?

Any advice regarding oversleeping? I have hashi’s but my dosage of levothyroxine is dialled in, my endocrinology bloodwork is dialled within decent ranges too. Hitting gym 3x and doing HIIT 2x per week too.

Maybe its just because of the holidays but been tired even after a 8h sleep and most days have been sleeping 10+ hours
