My Weight Has Plateaued...

I am trying to gain weight and I recently gained 15 pounds going from 110-125. I was getting around 2500-3000 calories per day, and I was wondering if it would be better for me to jump up to 4000 calories per day or start eating between 3000-3500.

You should totally still be gaining weight at 125 and 3000 calories.

Add another 500 calories if you feel you’re stalling.

I’ve been stuck at 125 pounds for a couple of weeks now. 3500 calories should be enough to continue to gain weight?

Yup. If 3000 is enough to maintain current weight then 3500 will give you a calorie surplus.

Also don’t worry too much about being stuck for a “couple of weeks”. Most of us grow in spurts - stay around the same weight for about two weeks, then grow 2-3 pounds in a couple of days.

Alright, thanks for the help.

if your weight is stuck, eat more, easy peasy lemon squeezy.
