As you know, im the former fatty guy who just joined t-mag and i want to gain some weight because im too fkin skinny! yes, i dunno whats my bf% and i dont care cuz it costs too much and i think the mirror will be a good guide.
Ive been on a calorie surplus of 300 calories for just over 2 weeks, about 15 days. 300*15=4500 about 1.5lb i should have gained by now. but ive gained 3! there are 2 ?logical explanations:
- 1 pound of muscle is less calorie dense than a pound of fat(3500 calories)
please tell me this is true, if its true thatll be great cuz ill know most of my gains have been lbm
- water retention. here comes the titl super sized cheeks. yes, have you ever seen a hamster carrying food to its nest? well, u got the picture:)
ive just gained 3 pounds and my former fatty ghost face appears every time i look in the mirror.
Is my theory that one doesnt need 3500 calories to gain 1 pound of body weight correct? (1 pound of muscle containing less therefore gain more than 1 pound for every 3500 kcal?)
Why has my face blown up so huge??
If this has happened to any of you pleasse tell me its ok since this is really scary!
Thx again ppl!,
