Fat Loss with GH

Sup everybody, im 16 years old. My father is 5’9 and i was 5’6 so he took me to the doctor . I had igf-1 deficiency so he told me to run 9iu’s of gh everyday for 3 months. I’ve cutted and lean bulked during this period and ive noticed i made gains a lot faster than usual in 2 weeks.

Also i’m 5’8 now and ive noticed my whole body is a LOT leaner after cutting (under a 700-500 calorie deficit) for 2 months (started at 11-10%bf). The problem is: my abs are kinda blurry for my body. According to accu-measure and my gym’s caliper, i’m at around 7-8% body fat now. Im still running gh and ill finish my ‘‘treatment’’ in 11 days.

After saying all that sh*t, the thing is i think my abs are like that because of water retention, one month ago after going out with my girlfriend,walking for 2 hoursand not eating for 6 hours, i came back home and checked how i was looking in the mirror: my abs were fricking ripped. The next day they were as blurry as usual. Could this be caused by water retention? Im always vascular (i can see quad,calf and shoulder veins) I just cant wait to stop taking this sh…t. its summer here and its stressing ‘‘to look as if i had an average 6pack’’. what are your opinions

Interestingly enough I have been dieting pretty hard these past several weeks and I am around the same bodyfat and yes, alot of that is going to be water retention because you are at a point where it actually makes a noticible difference on a daily basis. I’m in the same boat at the moment and it is frustrating to gauge progress, like a mirage that comes and goes.

That is just a result of body fat percentage though, doesnt have much to do with GH but GH does aid in fat loss.

Yeah its pretty frustrating, ive heard bout bodybuilders that cut gh 21 days before competition as they experience abdominal water retention as fuark.
