I've just been put on Decapeptyl injections which means I will no longer make any sex hormones (oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone). This is very necessary medically and will hopefully sort out a long standing condition. However I am aware that I will have some potential side effects coming up. The obvious ones are the menopause symptoms like hot flushes which I am prepared to put up with. The ones I am more worried about are things like putting on fat around the middle, losing muscle and losing bone. At the moment I lead a pretty active life but don't do any deliberate exercise - not sure where to start with strength training although I'm reading Body By Science. I've been paleo since January - not currently taking any supplements - should I? Any suggestions gratefully received.
