I’ve been following the advice in the “Truth about Bulking” article and have been aiming for 2-3 lb gains per month. I’ve been on track for that these past two months. I’ve put on between 5-6 lbs.
The thing is, this past week I put on a little over 2 lbs and I don’t think my diets changed dramatically. That’s a lot, I think, for one week. I also noticed that my waist size is a 1/2 inch bigger (from 32" to 32 1/2").
The odd thing is that my waist size has been pretty stable up to this point. I don’t understand the jump I’ve made this past week and given the waist size I don’t think it’s all muscle. :-/
I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing, because I keep adding weight to the bar, but if I notice my waist size getting bigger, which is what I worry about the most, should I cut back on calories or just carbs or both??
