First off sorry if this is in the wrong spot, new to the forum.

I am running 1cc test 1cc mast eod for around 5 weeks now and my gains are great but im gaining in my stomach/oblique area.. seems like bloat but its aggrivating because my diet is on point and im doing slow paced cardio 4-5 days a week.

any advice?

Thanks in advance:thinking:

1 cc of anything doesn't tell much. Prop, cyp? Test will bloat you no matter what. Mast is best at a low bf%. Change up your cardio. Maybe cut out some dairy. That always bloats me and of course when I consume too many carbs.

Thanks for the reply... its test prop. I reduced my carbs about a week ago and currently not consuming any in meals after 5 (besides veggies).. I eat them lightly in my first 3 meals. Currently not eating or drinking dairy.. Anything else that can be causing this? or other ways to cut down bloat? Its only in my stomach/oblique area... everything else is growing but staying lean.

Thank you!

Is it intestinal bloating or fat accumulation?

^^ this. I'm in the same boat brother using test/mast just added tren this week. I have been eating very clean and around 2000 cals per day put on 10lbs in a month after starting gear and freaked out no way I should grow or put on fat at 2000cals. I started using OTC water pill occasionally and digestive enzymes helped quite a bit. I'm willing to bet its not fat gain but rather water retention and bloat as stated above. I usually lift for 1hr and do 20-30mins cardio after 5 days a week and the cardio helps keep that water retention down as well. I know how you feel I was cutting natty got down to 190 and now with adding gear back in I'm back up to 205lbs and looking soft in the midsection as well. Steady the course maybe post up your diet get some of the vets to help you tweek it. May need to change up cardio routine in order to see more results.

Are you using an AI? have you gotten a blood test? how is your prop dosed?

I have been reading into AI recently and im still not sure... I'd like to test the carb/cardio thing first and then thats my next step. I have not had any testing.. Pinning 1cc Prop 1cc of mast every other day.

Thanks for your interest... Any info on AI You think i should know would be appreciated!

just for the record (if this helps) i am doing slow paced cardio.. either high speep walk on the tred or slow speed on incline.. might bump up to the stairs or stepper but all in all I dont see why I need all of this cardio on such a clean cut diet.. the weight gain in my stomach/oblique area is just making me crazy..

If you're eating broccoli / cauliflower / chard / etc. that can cause nasty bloat - digestive enzymes help. If you're gluten sensitive. try subbing your oats with yams.

Else are you drinking enough water? What about the protein mix you're using? Have you used it before w/o any issues? Check if there's any dairy in your protein. Are you getting enough fiber? Maybe just get a cheap OTC fiber supplement and use that 2x/day.

Otherwise it may just be your body adjusting to the diet if you've just started using it (i.e. restricted) - I've noticed that when I diet, sometimes I just flat out get bloated, try all the digestive enzymes. no gluten, etc. etc. etc. and it doesn't matter. But then it passes. Sort of like my body just had something it needed to figure out how to deal with and then figured it out.

Thank you! very helpful information! I am drinking no less than a gallon a day... protein is a good point. I usually stick with ON 100% whey but i tried this newer brand recently.. ill look into it more. As far as veggies im always eating either spinach or asparagus.. I dumped the brocolli a while ago due to the bloating.. same with brussels. Your point about adjusting sounds about right.. I guess ill see what happens. Thanks again

Has your diet consisted of this amount of protein intake before and been fine? I noticed when I up my protein intake I get bloated, mostly due to not enough digestive enzymes and fiber. Instead of supplementing I usually lower my protein intake. After a while I can slowly add protein without a problem.

Seams to me that some further resurch of AAS is needed. If ur not taking an AI And u haven't got blood test then ur possibly holding water due to hi estrogen. Also U need to up water intake to 1.5-2 galons. I was having a lot of bloat on my last diet (very clean carb cycle). I got a new coach and diet and lost the bloat. Mainly due to adding a cup of strawberrys to breakfast and half a grapefruit to second meal. This increased my fiber and antioxidants.

Thank you

Not trying to sound like an ass but if you dont even know what an AI is you have not researched enough to properly use gear. It's a part of the basics. Every beginner article, thread, sticky, etc will easily give you the basics of AAS use. Start by reading the stickies here, I found them to be some of the best on the net.

What is an AI...I know I have been their but for the love of god listen to ranmbo99 and me; you need to educate yourself a little more on AAS.....And quit trying to dodge the question...Get labs and read...

How do you expect anyone to be able to help you when you can't even tell us whether this increased waist size is due to bodyfat gain, water retention, or bloat? Do you know how many potential causes there could be between those 3 issues? Dozens, if not hundreds. Ohh...and telling us how many calories you ate or how "clean" your diet is doesn't matter either because we have no idea what your metabolic rate is or if you have any food alergies.

A lot of the guys here brought up some very good points, which could be the cause/contributer. Are you using an AI? Probably not, which could easily cause water retention, but this water retention would be all over the body. It would not manifest itself solely in the stomach area. So, aside from potential excess estrogen, it could also be something you are eating (digestion/elimination issues). You could also have mislabled gear, as much of the Mast on the market is labeled as Mast, but is actually something different.

Those questions were answered besides my labs or metabolic rate. The reason I discussed my diet was because I was asked to and I thought a big part of it was my diet. In case you forgot to read the whole thread I said its my first cycle. Everyone has been here before and I thought i could get some good info here.

Thank you.
