You need to eat big to make deca work, I would not use it by itself because of deca dick for one, and your going to shut your test down double hard on deca over test. Deca is going to raise progesterone blood levels, so its is a double killer of test which is why its a bitch to recouperate from.
Cycles of deca by itself I have heard of 200-400mg a week, even 600mg by someone who I would classify as highly strange, he is of about .05% of the population that loves deca by itself.
You will lose gains yes, if your lucky you wont lose but 5-15%.
One example of deca + test, would be deca for 10 weeks and test for 12, 3 weeks later start PCT.
How much research have you done man, what is your plan dietary wise, how much caloric increase, whats your post cycle plan, how much deca are you going to do each week? 10ml tells me 25mg a week or maybe 400mg a week, which is a huge disparity.
I hope you work out hard now, that is supposed to be a given brother, the diet you will also have to keep wraps on.
Bromo is the only thing I know of "for sure" that can control progesterone gyno, deca by itself, I still dont understand why people do this. Good luck finding bromo, but if your doing 300mg or less a week you probably wont need it.
Its important to have some kind of idea what you are doing to your body, and have a plan layed out that is based on research. I've seen some crazy, stupid cycle ideas thrown around, and seriously following advice blindly could turn up some really negative results.
So if you could outline your basic plan we can all take a peek.
How did you learn about all this stuff? Sounds pretty confusing to me. I would be affraid to put all that stuff in my body not knowing what the hell is going to come of it. It seems like you would have to be a lab rat.
I myself don't know a thing about steroids, but I heard of people I know talking about Deca. They didn't sound like they knew much about at all, but stated they were thinking of getting some from mexico.
I guess if I was 100 percent confident that the stuff would not cause me any serious side effects; even when I grew old, I would probably consider it. But the problem is, for me I feel it is to risky and think that natural is best.
