I heard eating 500 calories above your maintenance calories will make you gain a pound a week.

1) I have not gained weight doing so, is this supposed to be true?

2) How many calories should I add so that I do gain weight.

If you are eating 500cals/day above maintenance and aren't gaining, I would just eat more.

If you are not gainging weight, you are not eating above maintenance.

Jorge is right.

If you aren't gaining weight, then you are NOT eating above maintenance.

Have you ever thought that your calculation of your maintenance calories could be wrong? Are you tracking your calories every single day. Are you topping your calorie goal every single day.
