I've been cutting for around 14 weeks & done what I wanted to do so now I've decide i'm going to lean bulk. So at the start of the week I upped my cals by 200, 2 days later I dropped my weight so I upped it again another 200. 2 days later I drop more weight. So again today I will increase cals by another 200 & I will keep doing this until start to see a slight increase

Why does this happen, is it because my metabolism is now being given more food that its speeding back up

Does this happen to any of you guys?

My weight can vary 5lbs day to day depending on what I ate. Weigh yourself weekly, same place, same scale, first thing in the morning and you'll get a more accurate result.

Overall though you're right: if you're not gaining, eat more.

As LtL said, once a week only...with weighing midweek, it's easy to see gains/losses that are not there at the weekly weigh-in. So, weigh yourself only once a week, on the same day of the week and at the same time.

Even by doing that this time last week I weighed 1.3lbs more & I'm 400 cals up than last week

I did read somewhere that after a long cut its not unusual for you to continue losing weight even after bumping the calories up

That's fine, good to see that you're gauging an exact 7 day interval of weight change.

Well, after I lost weight, I maintained weight for around a year without really trying, though to maintain I had to eat a lot more to prevent any further drop in weight and at one point I wasn't exercising; it could be that with all the exercise, prior to it, that the body had got itself in to a good burning mode, upped metabolism all-round, sort of thing...but I couldn't say for sure, though it felt that way.

Never a problem I had to deal with, lol. I've always had to fight for every last pound lost.

I'd caution against adding too many cals too quickly though. Give it more than a few days to work.

I've lost more weight after slight refeeds.

Sometimes the ingestion of a bit more food can trigger some flushing for me, especially if it is certain types of foods.

Rapid weight loss like this can only be a few things, as it is rarely rapid fat loss or rapidly muscle loss. Usually it is the flushing of water or waste. The extra food could trigger waste removal, sweating etc. It only takes a little extra water to create a weight loss.

In addition, meal composition is very important. You could eat more, but be eating fewer carbs and sodium. Without knowing the composition it's really hard to say.

Unless your carb (and other macros) and sodium consumption are consistent day in and day out, the scale should jump around quite a bit. Adding a new variable into this mix can cause some crazy short-term responses.
