    diet --> gains (& fat if bad!)
    gear --> gains (& water retention!)

    so, if your diet is in check, your gains could be part from water and part from "real" gains!
    i wouldnt care about the extra water, it will go away once u stop with gear. also, if u are worried about it, u can keep it under control with nolva/ldex or nolva/proviron ...
    when did u start your cycle?

    One way to check for fluid retention is to use your index finger to depress the area of your shin that is directly above top of your socks, if you can dent it in and it remains dented for a 3-5 min. without springing back, you're probably holding some fluid.. and although it seems to be contradictory, increasing your fluid intake tends to help get rid of fluid....unless you have a serious problem like chf or renal failure..in which case you wouldn't want to be juicing anyway......and femera(letrozole ) is super at keeping you dry...
