At the beginning of our IF journey I was diagnosed with low sperm morphology and low total concentration. In fact, for 3 failed IUI attempts our RE did sperm analyses without telling us the results, which were more of the same. (For more on our story click here.)Well, with a lot of hard work, my morphology and total concentration are normal and my testosterone levels are excellent. My current testosterone test was last week: 1,207, which is actually down a bit from 1,500. Keep in mind, normal is considered around 300-800. Moreover, I started the IF journey with a T of around 500.
Anyway, I am going to outline the medications, supplements, exercise and diet that I have been using. My RE cannot tell me which elements are the cause of the improvements and which are unnecessary. He says to just keep doing what I am doing: change nothing.
Hopefully, this information might be useful to someone out there.
I have been doing a full body weight lifting routine twice a week for about 1-2 hours per session. I do not do cardio. I hate cardio. Doesn't everyone hate cardio?
Since September 2018 I have been on the Carnivore diet. At the start, I weighed 205lbs(93kg) and today I am down to 165lbs(75kg). That is a loss of approximately 40lbs(18kg). Anyway, the Carnivore diet is very simple. Only eat animals and animal products. Do not eat plants: no grains, no beans, no fruit, no vegetables, etc. The following is my regular meal plan.
I should add, I feel amazing and have never been healthier. Not only have my SA and T results improved, but so has my cholesterol. Also, my chronic joint inflammation is gone.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
