A teacher once said in nursing school that if you use hormones or other muscles building "pill" techniques then muscle will not be lost if you stop taking the "pill" but it will be harder for you to work out and continue building muscle unless you work twice as hard at it because the hormone makes it easier for you to gain muscle.

maybe alot of the 10 pounds is probably water weight

The muscle atrophies and decreases in mass and strength if training is discontinued.

because when muscles are gained and not used they turn into fat similarly fat can turn into muscle(this happened to me)

Growth hormones cause the body to create more muscle mass. Therefore when the body absorbs more hormones this in turn will decrease fat inside the body as muscle mass is increased.

The hormones with the most direct effect on hair growth are androgens, the male sex hormones that include testosterone. Both men and women produce androgens--a gender just produces more of one and less of the other. The hormones essential to muscle development are the catabolic hormones and anabolic hormones.
