View Full Version : why no gain ??

11-05-2002, 10:07 PM

ive been on a bulk diet now for 2 weeks,

its been working great,

when i started i was 13 & half stone,

2 weeks later im 14 & half stone

so ive put on a stone in weight which is was happy about,

however the last week ive added some N-large to my diet,
i have 1 every morning when i wake up,

but strange thing is this week i have not lost or gained any weight?

im still 14 & half stone???

this is strange because even before i started taking N-large i was gaining weight, but this past week ive gained nothink?
ive even added a N-large shake every morning and eaten the same as i did in the past weeks??

so i find it very strange how ive gained nothink, yet the previous weeks i was gaining weight well,
and i even added a N-large shake evry morning this week which i previously dident take?

any advice would be appretiated

I had weeks when I would gain any weight, but don't freak out just keep at it this week and check again at the end of the weeks and if nothing add another meal.

Also, you need to weight yourself in the morning first thing on an empty stomach. Your weight will go up and down during the day, but in the morning your body is empty.

You'll need more than a week to judge if you've stopped gaining.

1 stone/14lbs in 2 wks, are you sure?

Are you taking creatine now? If so some of the initial gain could be water weight...just a thought.

That's a lot of weight to gain in 2 weeks. Odds are its mostly water, creatine or no...

as i say i was 13 & half stone, and ive just checked again today and im 14.3 stone ?

14 pounds in 2 weeks. Amazing genetics or you put on a decent amount of fat.

but dont really notice amy muscle growth either ?

maybe your scale is broken

He could have been dehydrated on an empty stomach at initial weigh-in. And holding water on a full stomach two weeks later after gaining a little muscle and a little fat. A 14 pound fluctuation isn't a big deal when action is taken. There are plenty of variables.

Give it more time. 1 pound a week is doing great. It could probably take you another 10-14 weeks to put on another stone. Keep doing what you're doing and keep working out. Patience my friend, patience.
