I've just started bulking and I seem to be putting on more fat than muscle. This is a shock to me, because im naturally quite skinny. Im taking a weight gainer..which contain 495 cals when milk is added, twice a day.

Ive just started training again after injury, so i dont expect much muscle growth at the moment(for the next few weeks)

Because putting on muscle comes hard to me, i dont want to lower my calories much, should i just keep eating and training the same?:confused:

Drop the weight gainer and get it from real clean food sources. Most of those are pis$load of sugar. That'll make you plump alright. But one thing I also want to add... when you do start eating considerably more, you have a tendancy to hold more water, which can be mistaken as "fat" gain.

Yep,you need "clean" carbs,not maltodextrine-dextrose and other sugars.All the weight gainers make your insuline levels to go threefold and store bodyfat and water weight.
Stick to oats,sweet potatoes,some fruits,veggies etc.
