    alot of the "gains" you see from dbol is bloat
    since your running an AI, the bloat isnt there

    you can lay off the AI and im pretty confident your weight will increase due to water

    Bro the questions you need to ask yourself are, are you getting stronger? Are you getting more ripped? Scales are honestly such a waste and so misleading. You could be dropping lbs of fat, and your body composition could be changing for the better. I stopped looking at scales for progress and started using the mirror and how my clothes were fitting.

    Dont you guys think that 6'0, 185, 14%... theres a lil more that can be done before jumpin on gear? i mean no offense to the OP and to each their own, but those stats DEF arent the status of someone at their natural limit.

    First cycle, the dbol is a liquid oral. I know I could have waited a little longer but im 37 and it is what it is, I am pretty sure the majority of people did their first cycle without hitting natural potential.

    I agree. Stats arenīt that bad. Your natural potential decrease with age as well.
    Another thing Iīve read is, we will not be able to hold on to gains past our natural potential unless we keep cycling.
    So for me, the cycle was about a shortcut, bumping me up to my natural potential, which I think is in the 240-250lbs area.

    If I were u, I would bump my clean cals.
    I personally donīt count cals, just eat like a MF, every 2 hours, and adjust according to my look (midsection/abs/vascularity)

    Is the 3800 calories enough to make gains for you and in the proper Protein/carb/fat ratio.

    I did my first because I was getting older, and, with similar stats to you, seemed to have a very hard time making gains, even though I was 20 pounds heavier and much, much stronger 15 years ago. Hormone levels drop with age.

    Guess what? The first cycle seems to be working. If the gains keep up, I may soon pass where I was when I was younger.

    I believe it is, I may kick the carbs up because I seem to do well when I throw in a big plate of spaghetti in the day.I know my tdee. Is in the the 2400 range, plus I have a hard time eating much more than that when I do,i feel and look like I am 6 months pregnant.

    Thats awesome oldsedentary!! I went from being 146 about 7 years ago when I was in my dumbass hardcore partying ways,I cleaned up my act and just started actually eating and got to 178 I stayed their for a while until I got serious about lifting and some knowledge but still have a real hard time getting past the 185 mark, so I am not really a hard gainer just a real easy loser, I can drop 10 pounds in a few days so I have to really stay on track.

    Perfectly normal fluctuations. You are only 6 days in. Stay on it, work out hard, and keep eating lean proteins. Check back with us in a week, and do not obsess about your weight every day.
