I am just now trying to slowly move to a bulk phase after a lenghty cut cycle of about 6 months. I am 6'2 at 85kg and am taking in about 2500 calories. I am gaining weight A LOT faster than i was expecting and the fat is coming on as well. I finished my cut about 4 weeks ago at 79kg. At this level of calories I really should be close to my maintenace, i dont understand how I am gaining so fadt unless a lot of it is water? Could the lenghty cut have done something to my metabolism that I need to take into consideration.
