if you underweight it might be just a bit of healthy weight gain with the increased calories i wouldent worry about it to much,while bulking you will have to accept a bit of fat gain,maybe somebody else can chime in.

When you increase your calories substantially you are also generally increasing your carb intake, sodium intake, as well as increasing your digestive system demands.

That's normal. It's mostly water, not fat. The first 2 weeks of any calorie change don't count. It's the 2 weeks after that are more telling.

Steve is spot on. For you to have put on 6 actual pounds of fat or muscle you would have to eat 21,000 calories over maintenance. That is 3500 extra calories a day. It can be done, but I have seen very few folks your weight that could pack away that much food consistently, each day. That said, we need a whole lot more information to help you accurately.

Height?
Weight?
A few days of food logs.
Exercise regimen.

All of this info would be helpful.

Ok here is some info about myself.

Height:5ft10

Weight:121 pounds (128 now actually, but according to you guys that 6 pounds extra is mainly water)

This is my diet:
Breakfast: 1 and a half cups of oat meal, 4 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, bowl of fruit.

2nd meal: 3 tablespoons of peanut butter on 2 slices of 100% whole wheat bread.

Lunch: 2 cups of brown rice, 16 oz of fish, and a bowl of salad.

Dinner: 12 oz of sweet potato, 16 oz of fish, and 1 bown of vegitables.

On workout days, before breakfast come my pre workout meal, which is half a bwl of oat meal an a bannana, and my post workout meal which is a whey protein shake.

I also have around 3 apples a day in between meals, and quite a few nuts.


I follow a 5x5 split now thatnks to the info you guys provided on here.
Now I ind I workout better, if I do the 5x5 on a push/pull/legs split.
I feel too tired doing squats deadlifts and heavy bench all in the same day.

Monday: Chest,Triceps and Shoulders.
.Flat bench-5x5
.Incline bench-5x5
.Dips-5x5
.Military press-5x5

Tuesday- day off

Wednesday- Legs
.Barbell squat-5x5
.Plyometric jump squats-4 sets until failiure
.Bulgarian split squats- 3x5

Thursday- day off

Friday- back and biceps
.Deadlift- 5x5
.Chin ups or bicep curls- 5x5
.Bent over rows - 5x5
.Lat pull downs or pull ups- 5x5

Saturday- day off

Then start over on sunday.
