After a prolonged cut and carb cycling approach after the last few months, I’ve decided to eat around my maintenance (2850) for the last week or so. I’ve done this with low GI carbs like oats and brown rice, lean protein sources, and veggies.
It’s more than I had eaten consistently in a long time, so the scale is telling me that I’ve gained 7 pounds in 2 weeks. Is this mostly water and glycogen? I’m hoping that my body will get accustomed to the new calorie level and stop gaining sudden weight. I wanted to bulk for about a 10-15 lb gain, but at this rate i’d be done in a month. whats going on?
