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.

That's a pretty good diet, like everyone else said its working stick with it. I didn't add it up but I bet you are higher than 2500 cal. probably closer to 3k. which is perfect for most people to put on weight. In the off season I'm about 3k to 3500 cal a day. If I only take in 2000 cal a day I loose weight. Everyone is different keep that in mind and stick with whats working for you

I've been doing a lot more cardio this time around and take in about 3500-3800. Looks like you're on the right path.

Ahh right I see. So rather than thinking some of those pounds are glycogen, and some are muscle, its actually that every pound you gain contains both.

Few more grams of what? Carbs?


I think I'm getting it now.

Thanks man

There's no difference between you and other people What Soldier meant was, some people tolerate carbohydrates better than others do, and you are probably one of those that do.


Nobody could tell you why that is, it would be like asking why some people are allergic/intolerant to certain foods whilst others aren't.
