    Gaining a lot of water weight early in cycle

    So, this is my first time posting here. I've read the forums for years and used a lot of information from here to help me run my first two cycles, but I have some questions about my present cycle.

    I am doing a cutting cycle, 320 mg/wk Test E and 50 mg Anavar ED. I started exactly a week ago. I have gained about 8 lbs of water weight, despite eating less (and my diet is really on point). Like I said, I'm trying to cut. I figured maybe this is from the test (although I don't remember gaining water that quickly before) so I started taking arimidex 0.5 mg EOD.

    As far as I can tell, I am continuing to gain water weight, despite having a negative calorie deficit. I was wondering if maybe I should take Nolvadex 20 mg EOD in addition to the arimidex. I read somewhere that Nolva can decrease the plasma concentration of arimidex by about a quarter, but ultimately it does not have an impact on the efficacy of the arimdex. Does anyone agree that perhaps adding in some Nolvadex can maybe counteract this water weight?

    I also have some concerns that my "anavar" might not actually be anavar. I ordered the exact same product as in this thread https://www.evolutionary.org/forums/...ers-69487.html
    The packaging looks literally exactly the same and everything. The thread is less than a month old. So I'm pretty concerned about that. I have ordered a roidtest for oxandrolone though and it should be here by tomorrow.

    Thoughts?

    Always recommended to get your AI in check before you even start the cycle!

    1. being in a caloric deficit doesn't cause weight loss, especially long term. you are like the 20th person this week to post they eat in a deficit and still can't lose weight. crazy huh? you actually do nothing but fuck up your metabolism eating in a deficit everyday. remember the hcg diet of eating 500 cals a day? it had a 100% fail rate. every person i know that did it is FATTER today.

    2. steroids aren't cutters. especially test. you probably would be happier using sarms, see the sticky log and you be the judge

    3. if you could not cut before PED's you aren't gonna cut on them. why don't you hit me up for a consult after this cycle and you recover and i will put you on a plan to actually get results
    Now taking clients for 1 on 1 consults

    Is that an ampule?? Is it injectable anavar? Iíve never heard of that. Also how do you get 320mg of test?

    8 lbs is too bad. You may need to drop your estrogen or your anavar ain't anavar.

    water retention at first is common regardless of the gear, the shift in hormones can cause this.. at times it will balance out after just 2 weeks from start date, it happens.. just keep an eye on things!
