I'm just starting week 2 of a moderate dose test E run. 420 mg per week plus 500 IU of hCG. I'm trying to lose some fat while at least maintaining strength. I was losing weight prior to the cycle running a moderate caloric deficit and got down to 194 lbs a week ago. Today I am 203.
I know that one can expect some water and glycogen retention but I was hoping to keep my weight relatively constant or ideally, lose a few pounds on this run. I'm wondering if I should a) drop cals lower b) add in some armidex c) take some lasix every few weeks to get a dry weight or d) let it ride and not worry too much about it because test e is test e and this is inevitable.
This is my second run with real stuff and I gained almost 30 lbs in my first 3.5 weeks last time. However, I was eating much more and kicking it off with superdrol so I don't see that as being indicative of much.
I chose test e rather than some more typical cutting compounds because I have used it before, knew how to get it, and it is as basic and safe as it gets.
