A gym buddy of mine has just started test enanthate and D-Bol. he started the dianabol as a kickstart while waiting for the test to kick in. The question he posed was he's not running an Aromatase inhibitor (AI) so when the water retention starts as expected, will that happen without going too high calorie on the diet. basically, he wants the bloat, but wonders if the caloric intake is going to have that much effect on the size he gains water wise. obviously, the retention is going to occur anyway.
I know what my personal opinion is, and I know it's kind of a fucked up question, but I wanted to get some other opinions.
