week 1 and the only gains I've had are fat
I'm on my first week of 500mg a week sustanon and 40 mg a day dbol . I've gained so much weight in my stomach that I'm starting to see cellulite. WTF? Is this because of the increased estrogen? Will it even out in a few weeks once the testosterone is built up? Should I start taking Nolvadex or Arimadex to fight it, or should I just wait and see what happens? HELP!!

no worries bro !
1. the gain around the stomach is obviously water dude it sinks in btw the skin and makes u think it is fat.
2. u can take arimidex to keep water off.
3. on d-bol expect alot of "cellulite" type deposites guranteed. alot of d-bol gains are water
4. no the testosterone wont even it out. actually it will make it worse, but sustanon isnt bad with water retention, but it has a phenylprop ester so it will give u noticable water gain.
once u start taking gear like d-bol/anadrol u will gain weight rapidly. mostly from water. trust me i am taking 100 mg anadrol/ed right now and i am already up 34 lbs in 3 weeks bro !

I feel the same way, and I’m not taking d-bol. No one has really said it’s too much of a concern to me, so I’d say I feel you and lets hope for the best. Fatty’s together. No homo.

Why, if you are worried about water retintion, would you not have started anti e's when you started your cycle?

Water retention will make you look bloated. Also if you've been pigging out you stomach and intestines are probably fuller. Is your face getting a little rounder too? How many calories a day? Dbol is great for fast increases in strength but I stay awy because of the bloat and increased blood pressure which I suggest we all check regularly while on any type of AAS.

yes, the water weight gain is the major gain with the dbol . most people take dbol just to take it - it is the easiest to get. it is a great muscle enhancer and filler. human muscle is 3 parts water and 1 part protein. the more water the muscles can retain, the stronger you will get. that is the reason for creatine also, but you be the judge of what works better. i say the dbol is great, but if your muscles "starve" after a workout, then it is time to load the creatine up - no more than 10 minutes after the workout. dbol is a helper that needs other additives to "lock it in". if you arent treating your body right with a proper/semiproper diet, then you will only gain weight on your stomach - and it is called fat.

Welcome to the wonderful world of water retention. Some people will retain water...some will not. Those that do not retain water, really do not know what it is like(mentally) to hold water.
Ohh.....Bro, just hang in there..you are on the right track.
Things that will help rid you of SOME water retention and bloat. Are, l-dex or armidex....nolvadex .....These are 2 things that I would actually recomend as a must for those of us that are Water Boys. Also, things thta will help, drink plenty of water...which i am sur you allready know, and should be doing anyways....and Keep sodium to a minimum in your diet. Good Luck!

Thanks for the support guys. This is my first cycle, and I guess I just wasnt expecting so much water. I was expecting about the same bloat I got off of creatine. But wow! I've always been really lean, but now I look like a slob. Oh well. Once I'm off the sauce and my body comes back in check, I'll lose any fat and water that I have. For now, I'm going to get on the nolvadex and spend a little time in the sauna to try to sweat out whatevers close to the surface. My diet is really not that great right now, due to lack of funds, but next week I come into some extra cash and I'll start my summer diet early. I'll post pics when I'm done. Thanks again.
