It is a common myth that plagues many message boards and it is nothing more than a myth; the myth states Dianabol makes you gain fat. It is true, the Methandrostenolone hormone does aromatize and by this effect can cause a lot of water retention and when bulking most rarely concern themselves with a little water. Lets examine; water retention or bloat is not fat, its water retention plain and simple. Further, many who bloat badly when implementing a Dianabol cycle automatically blame the new found bloat solely on the Dbol when more times than not a large culprit is them overeating, especially regarding carbohydrates. Finally, if water retention is truly a bad issue for you and it will be more pronounced in some than others, a good aromatase inhibitor will eliminate concern. In short, if youre eating properly, not stuffing your face like a fat cow and supplementing responsibly, massive water retention will not be a problem and any that does occur is certainly not body-fat; but can it be used while cutting?
