Please look at my profile, I believe I'm a hermaphrodite woman. I developed noticeable testicles and a tiny penis after I started bodybuilding. My strength is rare for either men or women , and I put on 5" of mass on my arms in 9 months, 3" on my calves when I started heavy lifting.
You are not a disgusting freak. There may be some things you can do to kind of reduce the effect the body building and a doctor may provide u with some female hormones to counter act the effects. Don't EVER feel like some minor change in your life could make u take ur life. People love you and should except whoever/however u are. Good luck with this situation but, you should ask a doctor before u self diagnose, especially something like this. I'm sure you are not what u think you are. Stay well and take care
I'm pretty damn sure I am. I enjoy the bodybuilding,and want to get bigger, but now this came up. I guess I keep bodybuilding and never have sex, cause it grosses guys out. I've only been lifting for 3 months, so I'm shocked at the gains I made and how quickly.
Avoid eating protein at the same time you take arginine, because protein interferes with the absorption of arginine. Again, you are wasting your money. Maximum absorption of arginine is 2 hours before eating and 2 hours after eating. If arginine upsets your stomach, decrease your dosage or take it with some carbohydrates. Taking it as an HGH enhancer will give you an anti-aging effect. You must take 10-12 grams 30 minutes prior to falling asleep to get this release of HGH as an anti-aging effect. For an athletic effect, take your supplement prior to exercise. Do not use high glycemic sports drinks such as Gatorade because it will interfere with absorption and will waste your money.
Studies have shown that large doses of arginine may cause some cancers to replicate faster. However, the doses were from 30 to 50 grams and were given intravenously. To be cautious, consult with your physician if you are under medical care for cancer.
Whey protein concentrate, NOT protein isolates
Protein isolates are proteins stripped away from their nutritional cofactors. There are three problems with that...
All isolates are exposed to acid processing.
Your body cannot assimilate proteins in isolated form.
Due to over-processing, isolates are deficient in key amino acids and nutritional cofactors.
Sweetened naturally, NOT artificially, and low carb
Most whey products are artificially sweetened making them useless if you have sugar sensitivities, or just don't want to put artificial sweeteners or flavors into your body.
Your whey should be low glycemic, low carb and should not contain any artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohol, glycerin, fructose, sugar or gluten.
Maximum biological value, NOT compromised or damaged
Most whey proteins provide some benefit. But, due to the ingredients, the source of the whey, the concentration of beneficial nutrients, or the type of processing, many whey products simply don't deliver what they promise.
You want whey that's guaranteed to retain its maximum biological value -- one with all the key amino acids, cofactors and beneficial micronutrients present and intact rather than compromised or damaged, and not missing any amino acids or essential nutrients.
Easy to Digest, NOT Causing Digestive Stress
Many whey products contain long-chain fatty acids which are hard to digest and require bile acids to absorb.
You want a whey protein powder with medium chain triglycerides (MCT). These are easily absorbed, digested quickly, and utilized as energy without causing digestive stress.
Ideally, you want a product in which the MCT come from the best source of all -- coconut oil.
Free from Toxic Heavy Metals or at Such Low Levels NOT to be a Health Risk
Many protein powders both whey and non-whey could contain dangerous levels of heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic.
A recent Consumer Reports' evaluation showed some leading brands of protein powders exceeded United States Pharmacopoeia's (USP) recommended safety limits for certain heavy metals.
