When you stop taking Dianabol, your muscles will start to atrophy or shrink. This effect is increased when you are in a calorie deficit.
However, you won’t lose weight any faster if you take D Bal during the calorie deficit because it doesn’t increase metabolism. In addition, when not taken in conjunction with bulking periods, women may find it more challenging to build muscle even during the caloric surplus part of their cycle due to this metabolically inert factor.
To maintain results after ceasing use again, follow the instructions for cycling listed on the bottle label. The usual rest period is about six weeks, minimum between cycles. Still, your body might be sensitive enough that only four weeks are required before starting over at the total dose again. Or perhaps eight weeks is the minimum between cycles for you.
Yes, Dianabol can help increase metabolism, but it doesn’t lead to fat loss by itself when not taken in conjunction with bulking periods because it is metabolically inert unless your caloric intake is high enough to support muscle growth during a cycle of D Bal. “When not taken in conjunction with bulking periods, women may find it more difficult to build muscle even during the caloric surplus part of their cycle due to this metabolically inert factor.” So again, if you choose to take this steroid by itself and aren’t taking a hefty supply of calories, then don’t expect great results. Testosterone or nandrolone will accumulate water weight without those additional calories, which isn’t practical for long-term weight loss or healthy weight gain.
So if Dianabol is a DHT-derived anabolic steroid, why does it give women more of a hair loss problem?
Dianabol is a testosterone derivative and, as such, will have some virilization effects even at low dosages and other negative side-effects that are more pronounced in women. Virilization symptoms experienced by women include: male pattern baldness, acne, deepening of the voice due to significant increases in testosterone production from estrogen conversion triggered by aromatase activity. Not all forms of testosterone can do that. Still, this one certainly can because it’s not real clear on the Androgen receptor binding affinity index and also isn’t 5a reduced at all, making it far more potent than its anabolic and androgenic strength ratings would represent. This is why it causes such a problem for women who may want to avoid that if they can because it doesn’t just cause problems during use, but consequences that last long after the cycle has been discontinued, including adverse effects on the hair follicles, which exacerbate hair loss in many users of Dianabol.
So do I get stronger when I take more than the recommended dosage?
There won’t be any difference if you are not maxing out your natural testosterone production. However, taking it over the top might improve results slightly but then again, maybe not depending upon your genetics. If your genetics are average or below average, then their potential for improvement with extra D-Bol will likely be below the average potential for improvement even at recommended dosages.
Suppose you max out your natural testosterone production. In that case, you won’t get stronger, just more pronounced adverse side effects because Dianabol is very toxic to your liver and can cause severe damage with higher than average doses if not used responsibly. The only reason this steroid works well at all is that it provides a high amount of anabolic activity compared to its androgenic strength rating, which makes it incredibly useful for bulking purposes but also means that the potential for negative consequences exists even when taken responsibly, so please never abuse this drug or take more than 1-2 tablets per day as a daily dose for anything other than bulking purposes. If you take more than recommended dosage levels on a long-term basis, this will likely lead to a very inconsistent hormonal profile and problems associated with that.
So would taking less be more beneficial?
In many cases, yes, testosterone is the most popular steroid among bodybuilders because it stacks well with other steroids and can provide excellent results even at low dosages. So if you are not a genetic freak or a pro athlete, then Dianabol may not be the best choice for you unless it’s going to be used as part of a bulking phase where high levels of muscle growth are required in conjunction with testosterone injections. In those situations, it can provide an excellent kick start for muscle growth but, as previously stated, should never be used long term as its levels will catch up with you sooner rather than later, and its hepatoxic properties make it a poor choice for long term use of any kind.
So what happens after I stop taking D Bal?
When you come off Dianabol, you will lose all the gains that have been made within the past few weeks unless you had more chemically active forms of testosterone running through your system at the time then some AAS’s are known to provide a more permanent effect which allows a little bit more natural testosterone generation despite being on an extended cycle so if this is the case then your ability to maintain muscle tissue might be slightly improved by using higher dosages of AAS in conjunction with Dianabol but even so it would still be recommended to take something like 2-4 weeks off just because it is such a high probability that your hormonal profile would be messed up for some time after using this drug.
What’s the best way to stop taking D-Bal?
If you want to come off Dianabol, then it is strongly suggested to use HCG and/or Clomid as part of your PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) regimen because by doing so, you reduce the chance of having any significant loss in muscle tissue and also bring down libido which can otherwise continue to be suppressed past the point where other regimens would return things like natural testosterone production or even standard sex drive above what is considered normal through merely supplementing with AAS over extended periods because Dianabol increases estrogen levels at a greater rate than testosterone but also reduces natural testosterone production at the same time which causes you to become much more sensitive to the estrogen in many cases.
