Anyone else cortisolmaxxing here?
>sub-12% bf all year
>lots of running
>less than 7 hours sleep a night
>take on extra responsibility at work so I'm there 11-12 hours a day
I'm still making gains but I stopped getting horny or caring about women. All I care about now is making gains and making money. I'm truly free.
keep a heavy deficit, don’t eat carbs, drink coffee multiple times throughout the day.
I do this all the time. The only time I go over my caloric deficit is when I get a shitload of McD's.
I do all of this but I'm still insatiably horny and obsessed with women.
Do cocaine three times a day and masturbate 15 minutes before each bump.
NTA but I've cut my calories so much if I cut them any more I may as well just constantly fast. I do water and dry fasts occasionally as well. I'm still horny and could fuck a woman at the drop of a hat. I'm still a fat ass so I guess maybe it's because I still have enough fat to lose.
I haven't eaten in 14 days and I'm still horny. I'm worried I'm losing vital minerals because I end up secreting a shit ton during sleep.
What's your bf% and how much do you sleep
>take on extra responsibility at work so I'm there 11-12 hours a day
this. I was so much happier and relaxed as a shut-in NEET.
I have a traumatic brain injury from years of explosive overpressure
as a result I have chronic hypercortisolaemia and my life sucks
>sleep 3 hours max per night, have to take 1hr naps through the day
>chronic fatigue, tired all the time
>TDEE is <1000 calories, will put on 1kg of fat per day unless I do my daily 5km run and only eat 500g chicken and cucumbers/carrots/lettuce/mutlivitamins
>hair falls out in clumps
>zero sex drive
>permanently suicidally depressed, completely unresponsive to all antidepressants
I can't even get an MRI because I have so much shrapnel in my body
hard to feel sorry for a zogbot
No I'm basically fucked until more research gets done. Unironically thinking about microdosing shrooms like some SEALs have been doing which supposedly helps with neuroplasticity
OK, elite zogbot.
Yeah very sad. but now you get to brag about the lifetime of pride in muh corps. Isnt that so cool?
That's fucked man. They can't put you on strong sedatives for it?
But think about how many Afghani/Iraqi children you helped kill. I sleep soundly at night knowing these monsters aren’t out there to harm us. Your sacrifice was our security, and I’m eternally grateful bro. I live in Israel btw.
I don't like zogbots, but I feel bad for you man. I hope you can pull through.
correct me if I'm wrong, and this may sound gnomish
But couldn't he self prescribe meds? Like TRT, Thyroid, Statins, etc.
Or would that further fuck the shit out of him? I know the whole "throw a drug at it" is a fucking trick, but this may be a legitimate instance...
Good question honestly, I feel like test might actually help him somewhat, but that's pretty much the only "drug" that I truly know how it works kek
well, I know a few would do the following, sides good and bad
TRT > Obviously
T3 (thyroid) > Increase in TDEE, will increase activity, etc.
Statins > Lower BP? and HDL levels??
Diabetes meds (metformin, glp-1 agonists) > obvious blood sugar shit
Benzos/Xanax > Sleepy/Relaxed as fuck
I want to say theres cortisol blockers too.
But most of these ALSO increase stress levels, which obviously....
I'm not telling you to become a drug addict, but consider some of these if it IS that bad bro. Even if it kills you 5-15 years younger, your QOL would improve by 2.5-5x (obviously just a # lmao)
Doctors haven’t tried any of the medications used for Cushings? I tend to have high cortisol, haven’t been treated for it but I’ve found that a Beta-AET supplement helps a little. Hope things get better for you fren.
Don't worry, you completely fucking ruining your life has served a great purpose. Giving garden gnomes oil money, expanding Greater Israel, open borders for Europe, and BBC porn. Doesn't that feel great!?
>Anyone else cortisolm-ACK
Literally me and yes, I will die of a heartattack in my 30's.
You will die in your 50's and live your 40's like you're 60
I can tell my hormone signalling is beyond fucked from the excessive load of cutting, work, college, and a little more for so long.
Some chick came up to me in the gym and now we are talking and I've always been an anti-social shut in retard who didn't care about women but I have been more erect in the last 2 days thinking about her than I have in months/years. If she inst in to me or something I will probably blow a gasket, but if something happens I may be able to finally rest. I genuinely think if I bust / don't bust a nut that will make or break my next 5-10 years of life.
I do this but unironically
I can't even imagine the life of the average normie that works 6-8 hours and afterwards just does nothing all day
>afterwards just does nothing all day
shocking I know, but most people have these things called friends, hobbies, and family
Do you ever actually interact with normies? Most of them have an extremely boring life where they indeed just go home and do nothing the entire evening besides watching netflix.
I’ve done this by accident. I’m a bioengineer in R&D, so I work long hours. My main form of exercise is running, so I run after work. By the time I’m done, it’s bedtime and all I’ve done the entire day is run and work. It’s kinda sad because I don’t have time to go on dates, but at the same time, you’re right, you’re so busy and stressed out that you don’t really care about getting a gf or whatever. It’s just my dog and me. Pic related, we just ran 5 miles.
try running in the morning. i sleep like shit if i exercise in the evening (although low intensity cardio doesn't affect it as much)
This thread is insane. Is this how all college educated men 23-35 live these days?
What is insane about this? It saves me money since I was strongly considering prostitutes, but now I don't have to. Now I'm getting better, fitter, and richer every day.
You should be building a family right now and all you’re doing is working.
>dude just cuck yourself to a whore and become her little wageslave for the rest of your life
>50% of all assets + child support + tip
I fucked my cortisol recently due to shitty, diet, overtraining, never taking time off work, increasing relationship problems, and by constantly dosing amphetamines to even stay alive, coupled with rapidly losing 12 kilos in two months and I'm pretty sure it gave me burn out. Honestly don't know why WOMEN decide to just stop working and doing things due to this. Sure I'm feeling more brain fog, and I'm irritable as a motherfucker coupled with low libido (thank Christ) but other than that it's absolutely not a big deal.
Except you’re probably less smart for it. Why isn’t anyone ITT bringing up the cognitive decline associated with high cortisol baseline?
because its a bunch of retards shitposting
>oh no no no
I am so sad, my body won't let me sleep for longer than 4 hours for the last two years. Melatonin pills and decaffeinated tea for sleeping doesn't help.
