Default

Rapid weight = fat... It takes time to get big, just as it does time to lose fat. The difference between the two is reversing the calorie intake.

Fat = Low Cal.
Muscle = High Cal.

Typical starting recommendation to lose fat is minus 500 calories from maintenance.
A solid recommendation for gaining would be a surplus of 500 calories.

If you still don't see results, +/- calories to suit your goals. If you're seeing significant fat gain, in addition to muscle, reduce your surplus to 300 calories.
