Bloat, Water-retention etc

Post by ironclad on Wed Apr 20, 2016 1:47 am

I'm curious about the issue of water-retention (bloat) when cycling Test. BTW i know that AIs like letro are helpful as the bloat comes from elevated oestrogen side-effect. But...
As well as food, food, food the next priority when cycling Test is (if i'm learning this right) to drink plenty of water, something like a gallon/day min. Maybe i'm confusing myself here, but isn't it likely theres a link here despite the higher oestrogen? Would it also help combat the bloat by keeping the drinking to normal levels? Or is the extra drinking for a good reason?
(hopes this isn't a runner for BS Q. of the month award!!!)

Ok, while i'm here can anyone say why the extra water anyhows? (ahem, sorry, jus trying to suss this all out. happy to be given a link if this has been done over n over)

the more water you drink the less your body retains because it knows there will be more water coming into the system so it can excrete what is already there. when you dont drink water often it retains it in case of emergencies because your body does know when it will have water again.

different steroids affect peopele in different ways. some people retain water on test e some dont. anadrola nd dbol will make you retain water. tbol doesnt bother me to much

Yup, just like DW said taking in more than normal amounts of water are essential to keeping bloat down, and also flushing your system of toxins which will build up while being on. Another thing which can help keep bloat down is to keep sodium consumption to a minimum as sodium makes the body retain water.
