    I think I have a pretty slow metabolism and Im also a couch potatoe. I did weightlifting and playing some football at the last weeks on a regular base (I try to include more and more sprints while playing football) and I feel my process is absolutely alright. For some reason my body doesnt remove muscle mass like crazy with this calories input of 1200 kcal - 1500 kcal and even if I look in the mirror every day and Im in a state where I dont lose fat that quick, I can see how I gain muscle mass and lose fat. On the other hand I always gained muscle mass very quick when I ate more than I need in the past. Like I said before, I had some days with very low calories input and I instantly acknowledged the yoyo effect. I lost weight even faster, but gained it back when I increased my calories a bit. I know the general theory doesnt apply to my body, but its just strange in some way. But soon I want to add more calories again anyways.

    Regarding the frequency: I plan to do 2/1 or even 1/1. If I do 2/1 I'll do the bathmate on the second day.

    5/2 and 3/1 would be the upper limit for PE frequency, with 2/1 and 1/1 being the lower limit.

    The problem with eating below your BMR is your body will think its starving and therefore adjust your metabolism accordingly. Lastly, you'd end up with an even worse bodyfat percentage because muscle tissue will be cannibalized in order to meet your body's caloric requirement. You're only making your goals all the more difficult and risking your health in the process by eating so little.

    3) You're eating way too low. At your stats (depending on your age), just your basal metabolic rate is between 1700-1800 calories, which means that's how much you would need to be consuming if you were in a coma. Factor in a sedentary lifestyle and your caloric requirements would be anywhere from 1900-2000 calories. Furthermore, at your height and weight I'm not exactly sure why you're dieting; you would probably be better served to simply eat at a maintenance level of calories and start lifting weights.

    Thanks for your answers guys. I realized that I prolly was a bit too enthusiastic with measuring. Even later in the training session my size got bigger. I will stop measuring for now and just focus on the training.

    My workout is like: Warmup, Stretching, Jelqing, Bathmate, Kegel (starting in Bathmate), Warmdown

    5/2 on/off is definitely too much for me. I rather like to do 2/1 or 3/1 depending how my unit feels.

    Im aware that my calories are way too low, but I'm still on diet. 6 weeks ago I started to do more sports and eat less calories, and for the most time it was like 1300 - 1700 calories a day. Just in the last days I had a even lower input, but I realized a yoyo effect and will stick to 1200 calories atleast until I reached a bodyfat I like. Its still a bit higher than I like.

    Your penis size cant really decrease from doing PE correctly. And when it comes to the erection, it depends on your mood and stuff. My penis is sometimes is half a cm longer or shorter. Sometimes its 14.3 sometimes its 14.8. So don't worry, you should just measure your penis everyday when doing PE. Its like a false alarm right now for you. Give yourself a week and find out if you really became shorter

    And don't do PE on a 100% erection level. That is bad. Also what PE are you doing, whats the routine and everything? And if you want gains, do PE for more than 2weeks. You should see some gains after a month or two, but they can be minimal. It is different for every man. I just started PE 2 days ago, ill measure in a month to see if I get any gains.

    Good luck with your PE, continue doing it religiously and after a few months you should see some results

  • Length decreased one day after workout (maybe because of NoFap?)

    Hey! Like 2 weeks ago I started with PE again (never did it for a long time before). I wanted to do another workout today and tried if I could get a good, 100% erection. This was the case, but my member seemed to be shorter as well - 1cm). I thought that a good erection level is a indicator of being not in overtraining. When I woke up today (13 hours ago), I had a morning wood with my normal length. Other information, which could play a role:

    a) Im on a low calories diet since 5 weeks or so. (right now Im at 76,5kg on 180cm with some muscle mass. eating 800-1200 kcal these days.)
    b) My sleep was pretty bad the last 3 days (I try to get rid of MJ)
    c) Im doing NoFap and Im at day 22. In my last relationship I had problems with DE (delayed ejaculation) and ED. I tried to do PE to improve my situation, but often I couldnt resist and edged and it didnt improved as much as I would have liked (I also stopped wathcing porn back then). There are flatlines with doing NoFap, could I be in one and do they stop gains? When I did PE in my last relationship, I thought that I had nice gains pretty fast which isnt the case right now. Im pretty sure I already was at 15cm NBPEL (like one week ago), but in the last days my max is like 14,7cm.

    Do I just need a break even if my erections are pretty hard? thanks in advance
Working...
