Short version - eating WAY less, no bread, and a lot of salad. 

Longer version - I left here last year weighing at around 270 pounds. That was November...plan was holidays with the US family (I alternate each year) and 3 months. I joined the gym while out there, and began taking mass gainers as I began getting stronger and larger with machines and nothing on the back fusions (chicken legs)...yes, I used to be into that crap as a youngster. The milk and calories was doing it's job, tried to increase my aerobics to help the heart. I also went to all my doctors when I arrived, and all tests were my usual, in range (borderline high norm hemoglobin and liver enzymes)...except my testosterone, as I was complaining about less interest in sex. That was very low. I was then sent to a urologist as he was an expert in that field. Again, the bloodwork he redid, as if it was going to change in a week, was the same, although they did far more extensive. He put me on 1/2 cc test 2 x week inject...asked if I wanted to try the clomid instead...I have had 4 eye surgeries, and a worst case sore eye ever...scarred my corneas, and was stuck in a unlit room for 3 weeks, visit once to davao doc, thus wanted no part of clomid, which like viagra, can cause eye issues. 

Move ahead past the 3 months, blood test came back as I gained weight vs told to lose and my family doctor told me stroke, liver problems, heart problems and all sorts of things. Told me the testosterone can raise your already high hemoglobin (blood thickens) and need to either get to hospital, or dump blood. Iron was also way high, as was my blood pressure 180/120 while on medication. That's when I went cold turkey....from eating near 2000 calories a meal, with mass protein shakes and snacks galore (6 bagels a morning anyone)...plus 6 eggs, bacon...I would eat 6 slices of pizza, and still be hungry. From that I went almost no protein. Oatmeal breakfast, no coffee, water....then 2 egg whites and low iron wheat. Lunch was a thin peanut butter sandwich, apple water...3 pm had more cereal, very small amount, low iron...dinner was a ceasar chicken salad, croutons never tasted so good. No snacks, LOT of water. Dropped 30 pounds in 2 months....the last 30 was slower, but consistent. From 300 to 240, and a week ago I was 236. I then went to 242...easier here, but once I hit the city and stay, it's hard to find healthy options. 

Blood pressure now 110/60-70...no meds. Hemoglobin 14-16, donate 500 ml's when it gets to 16...liver enzymes from the high 80's ALT AST to in the 20's...that was usually 30-44. I can see a six pack....can move better, limits cause my spinal fusions of course, but even the back has less pain. 

Key is being boring with food, eating for function vs pleasure. In the USA, I can eat for function and still enjoy food more then here, but the fiancee is a great cook...western foods. Simply has that ability....oh, and I only eat skinned chicken breasts....occasionally eating the roasters s $ r sell...fruits here, love the chinese pears.

My testosterone was first identified as being low about 10 years ago. I had no indication of it though and everything worked as good as ever (if you know what I mean).

I was put on monthly injections for 3-4 months and then they were stopped. About a year later, injections again for several months. I never noticed any difference after taking the injections.

Shortly after, I moved to the Philippines and was there for 5 years with no injections. As before, I never noticed any issues.

Back in the USA and the doctor says my testosterone is low, again. Now I'm on injections monthly. I still can't tell any difference before or after the injections.

I on now on Flax seed, they say it boost your testosterone out put naturaly not sure it work yet but have loads of gas and my urine does do better for sure .

Flaxseed is the seed from the plant Linum usitatissimum. The seed or the seed oil is used to make medicine. The information on this page concerns medicine made from the SEED only. There is a separate listing for flaxseed OIL.

People use flaxseed for many conditions related to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including ongoing constipation, colondamage due to overuse of laxatives, diarrhea, inflammation of the lining of the large intestine (diverticulitis), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or irritable colon, sores in the lining of the large intestine (ulcerative colitis), inflammation of the lining of the stomach (gastritis), and inflammation of the small intestine (enteritis).

Flaxseed is also used for disorders of the heart and bloodvessels, including high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure (hypertension), and coronary artery disease.

Flaxseed is also used for acne, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), kidney problems in people with a disease called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), symptoms of menopause, and breast pain. It is also used for diabetes, obesityand weight loss, HIV/AIDS, depression, bladder infections, malaria, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Other uses include treatment of sore throat, upper respiratory tract infections (URTI), and cough.

Some people use flaxseed to lower their risk of getting weak bones (osteoporosis) and to protect against breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer.

Flaxseed is sometimes applied to the skin for acne, burns, boils, eczema, psoriasis, and to soothe inflammation.
 

How does it work?

Flaxseed is a good source of dietary fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. The fiber in flaxseed is found primarily in the seed coat. Taken before a meal, flaxseed fiber seems to make people feel less hungry, so that they might eat less food. Researchers believe this fiber binds with cholesterol in the intestine and prevents it from being absorbed. Flaxseed also seems to make platelets, the blood cells involved in clotting, less sticky. Overall, flaxseed’s effects on cholesterol and blood clotting may lower the risk of “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis).

Flaxseed is sometimes tried for cancer because it is broken down by the body into chemicals called “lignans.” Lignans are similar to the female hormone estrogen - so similar, in fact, that they compete with estrogen for a part in certain chemical reactions. As a result, natural estrogens seem to become less powerful in the body. Some researchers believe that lignans may be able to slow down the progress of certain breast cancers and other types of cancers that need estrogen to thrive. 

For systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), flaxseed is thought to improve kidney function by decreasing the thickness of blood, reducing cholesterol levels, and reducing swelling.

Flaxseed is LIKELY SAFE for most adults when taken by mouth. Adding flaxseed to the diet might increase the number of bowel movements each day. It might also cause gastrointestinal (GI) side effects such as bloating, gas, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, stomachache, and nausea. Higher doses are likely to cause more GI side effects.

There is some concern that taking large amounts of flaxseed could block the intestines due to the bulk-forming laxative effects of flaxseed. Flaxseed should be taken with plenty of water to prevent this from happening.

Taking flaxseed extracts that contain lignans in concentrated form is POSSIBLY SAFE. Lignans are the chemicals in flaxseed that are thought to be responsible for many of the effects. Some clinical research shows that a specific flaxseed lignan extract (Flax Essence, Jarrow Formulas) can be safely used for up to 12 weeks.

Products that contain partially defatted flaxseed, which is flaxseed with less alpha-linolenic acid content, are available. Some men choose these products because they have heard that alpha-linolenic acid might raise their risk of getting prostate cancer. It’s important to remember that the source of the alpha-linolenic acid is key. Alpha-linolenic acid from dairy and meat sources has been positively associated with prostate cancer. However, alpha-linolenic acid from plant sources, such as flaxseed, does not seem to affect prostate cancer risk. Men should not worry about getting alpha-linoleic acid from flaxseed. On the other hand, there is a concern that partially defatted flaxseed might raise triglyceride levels too much. Triglycerides are a type of blood fat.

Raw or unripe flaxseed is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. Flaxseed in these forms is thought to be poisonous.
 

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Taking flaxseed by mouth during pregnancy is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. Flaxseed can act like the hormone estrogen. Some healthcare providers worry that this might harm the pregnancy, although to date there is no reliable clinical evidence about the effects of flaxseed on pregnancy outcomes. The effect of flaxseed on breast-fed infants is unknown at this time. Stay on the safe side, and don’t use flaxseed if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Bleeding disorders: Flaxseed might slow clotting. This raises the concern that it could increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders. Don’t use it, if you have a bleeding disorder.

Diabetes: There is some evidence that flaxseed can lower blood sugar levels and might increase the blood sugar-lowering effects of some medicines used for diabetes. There is a concern that blood sugar could drop too low. If you have diabetes and use flaxseed, monitor your blood sugar levels closely.

Gastrointestinal (GI) obstruction: People with a bowel obstruction, a narrowed esophagus (the tube between the throat and the stomach), or an inflamed (swollen) intestine should avoid flaxseed. The high fiber content of flaxseed might make the obstruction worse.

Hormone-sensitive cancers or conditions: Because flaxseed might act somewhat like the hormone estrogen, there is some concern that flaxseed might make hormone-sensitive conditions worse. Some of these conditions include breast, uterine, and ovarian cancer; endometriosis; and uterine fibroids. However, some early laboratory and animal research suggests that flaxseed might actually oppose estrogen and might be protective against hormone-dependent cancer. Still, until more is known, avoid excessive use of flaxseed if you have a hormone-sensitive condition.

High triglyceride levels (hypertriglyceridemia): Partially defatted flaxseed (flaxseed with less alpha linolenic acid content) might increase triglyceride levels. If your triglyceride levels are too high, don’t take flaxseed.

Low blood pressure (hypotension): Flaxseeds might lower diastolic blood pressure. Theoretically, taking flaxseeds might cause blood pressure to become too low in individuals with low blood pressure.

High blood pressure (hypertension): Flaxseeds might lower diastolic blood pressure. Theoretically, taking flaxseeds might cause blood pressure to become too low in individuals with high blood pressure who are taking blood pressure-lowering medication.
