I remember you telling me it wasn't before, but then you didn't know exactly what my diet looks like.

Maybe you'll change your mind now that youv'e seen I've eat allot of carbs?

Not sure weather that makes a difference but.

Carbs are good, especially since you said you aren't gaining fat. Honestly, more carbs are great for gaining if you're body can handle it, and obviously yours can.

A trained muscle adapts to hold more fluid and glycogen as part of the adaptive response to training. This has a lot more to do with the fact that not every lb you gained is actually muscle, as opposed to it being a result of your carb intake.

I could gain 10lb in 2 days from eating carbs, but that's only because I'm completely carb depleted from my diet. If you aren't already carb depleted then adding a few more grams won't really have much effect on water retention.
