Just wandering what some of your inputs might be on this issue:
I have been lifting to gain mass and doing a bulking cycle, up until about 3 days ago, I really wasn’t eating enough, I sat down and figured that I was lucky to be intaking 2200 calories a day, about 700 of those from mountain dew. I stopped drinking the dew, and changed to water and gatorade. Also, I started counting my calories, over the last 3 days I averaged an intake of 3500 a day with 300+ grams protein about 100 grams of fat and 400 grams of carbs.
Now here is where the reality sets in for me:
I am lifting heavy and eating good(I could still eat better, but doing much better than ever before)…I weighed right at about 169.5 on sunday morning with shoes, shorts and shirt on…this morning I weighed in at slightly over 175 with just underwear on,
now could this be muscle gain with fat gain, or is it just the extra food I am eating that is staying with me(waiting for me to crap it out)?
I do feel bigger, and my girlfriend said that I looked considerably bigger;
my uniform in the shoulders and the legs in my pants are tighter too, sucks cause now I have to buy new ones, at first I thought that it was all fat, but then I can still see my abs just as good as before.
What do you think it is? Am I on the right track for reaching my goal of 185(ultimate goal is 200, but I have an intermediate goal too)
