Triiodothyrine, or T3, is a key regulatory hormone for your overall metabolism and health. It is a metabolite of the "storage" hormone T4, minus an iodine at the 5' position. This hormone is extremely potent and tightly regulated but I has a dramatic effect on metabolism
T3 rapidly "increases" you're overall metabolic rate it would commonly be thought of. It increases metabolism of macronutrients, metabolism of certain vitamins and minerals, thermogenisis and tolerances to temperatures, and the increased burning of substrates for energy rather than their storage(decrease body weight). It also has a positive impact on cholesterol and triglycerides and does give a solid amount of energy.
Unfortunately T3 gives no fucks in regards to this. It It makes the body want to burn indiscriminately from body fat to muscle tissue. The amounts needed to see these effects are so minimal too, with only a microgram amount being needed. Abuse of this strain your other organs which aren't equipped to be in over drive all the time, with the heart being a top concern. This can very easily damage and strain your heart, which can end lethally.
Control over metabolism is tight, and so is regulation of thyroid hormones. Take high enough doses or long enough ones and guess what? Hypothyroidism, aka a thyroid that doesn't make T3 on its own anymore. That's assuming you didn't burn out your heart and other organ systems. Use in the physique enhancing community of this hormone is pretty common. I see people use anywhere from 50mcg-100mcg a day when used illicitly which is pretty high and will likely cause your own thyroid to limit natural production, if not stop it altogether.
DIVORCE TRAUMA FOR MEN: In a recent article for ABC News, a psychiatric nurse has likened the effects of divorce on men to PTSD. Having spent 30 years of his career meeting men presenting with clinical problems following the breakdown of their relationships, he then experienced the trauma himself. Explaining that while men and women are both affected by separations, men react in ‘particularly destructive’ ways, landing themselves with intervention orders and turning to substance abuse to cope.

Just about..... with a flat tyre on my way to work at 6.30 am. Left standing on the side of a dual carriage way in the cold and the dark for 90 minutes until the rescue company arrived. 90 minutes!!! I couldn't believe how long they took! And it was cold... really cold this morning!
So not the best start to the week.
I'm just glad Clara wasn't in the car with me. But it has made me think that I need to carry more warm clothes in the car for both me and her in case anything like this happening again. I would hate to of had Clara freezing on the side of the road with me.. I just hope that if I had her with me they would have come quicker!
I'm now enjoying a much needed glass of prosecco 🥂 ... roll on the weekend...

QUICK PROTEIN BREAKDOWN.
Whey, soy, pea.
1️⃣Whey: if you are going to use whey, be sure to get high quality, organic, grass fed whey. Feedlot cows these days live in their own filth and are fed pure garbage. You do NOT want to be putting that garbage in your body. Not to mention it's horrible for the environment.
Using high quality whey/ casein before bed can have its benefits as it's a slow release protein that can give sustained intake as you sleep. I would use in moderation, too much dairy causes inflammation.
2️⃣Soy: there are many conflicting studies out there with many mixed results. Many people have allergies to soy and can cause inflammation and adverse side affects in large quantities. Your body is unable to absorb all the protein that is listed on the packaging.
3️⃣Pea protein. Cheaper, easier to digest, more sustainably grown. This is my favorite and works best of the three for me.
