Hey Big Brother....I haven't quit using the Rogaine in the 13 months of my experiment so I have not had any hair loss. But, wherever you have any kind of hair now, fuzz or regular hair, Minox will increase that hair but it will not create new hair where there are no follicles. Sounds like you could be a good candidate for "beardom"...woof. I do think using the Rogaine brand is better than generic versions and the weekly testosterone injections also enters into the equation. But, it does go systemic so expect increased hair growth in your butt crack, arms, legs, nut sack, etc. Let me know how your experiment goes. I AM getting hairier so keep at it. It's not a quick process just so you know.
Portion management: You probably eat too much too fast. Try eating smaller meals more often throughout the day. Essentially, your doctor is telling you the right things. You’ve got to lose weight. There is a correlation between sleep apnea and being over weight. Don’t buy any fat-burners you’ll be throwing money away. There are some natural weight loss supplements that may help you. Make sure you learn the difference between fat-burners, fat blockers, and weight loss supplements. You’ll need to do some of your own research, but the key is to be discipline in your diet, hydration, and sleep. You’ll need to possibly make a life chart to document the areas you’re lacking in. Make a life chart documenting your food intake, sleep, hydration, and exercise every 24 hours for one week. From this you should be able to see some common yet critical mistakes that you’ll need to correct.
