My explanation, could be totally wrong and unaccurate :
Most of the gains are coming from cell hypertrophy (anti-catabolic propreties of anabolic steroids enabled the production of more muscle tissu protein by keeping a good nitrogen balance) and not from cell hyperlasia (formation of new cells).
Since the test level are dramaticaly dropping, the anti-catabolic proprietes are gone and muscle breakdown begins thus a part of the gains is lost
But ... some people are talking about cortisol playing a major role in this situation? Is it because the drop of the test level is considered a stress? Why do we need to take cortisol in account here?
If someone has an other explanation I'll be glad to hear it! (Oh I know about the water weight that, depending on the compound used, can account for abig/small part of the weight loss) No bro science please

There are better sites for this...
but here's the answer, the compounds you run combined with your diet will determine how much water weight/bloat you have.
Most people don't eat/train properly on or off cycle...hence the losses. There are knowledgeable people out there that retain over 70% of their gains."Everyone has a plan 'til they get punched in the mouth" - Mike Tyson

You only lose them because :
You are not eating right
Not running a decent PCT
Training not correct
Are far over your natural limit(natural testosterone cant maintain)
Most you lose after your cycle is water bloat and some fat, just read up ALLOT and be carefullDepressed Amsterdammerr is depressed :<
