View Full Version : Gaining too fast on a bulk?
08-05-2003, 05:37 PM
I started my bulk last week just to experiment. I've never had the desire to bulk before because I didn't want to get fat. However, after a year of staying at the same weight (but getting stronger for some reason), I thought I needed to bulk.
So anyways, I weighted myself in last week at 183 lb. in the afternoon. Yesterday I weighted myself and I was 188 in the morning, and today I was 190 in the afternoon. I thought ~5 lb in a week is a little much, but I don't THINK I got fatter. Thoughts?

I would imagine it is water/glycogen weight due to the increased food intake. Unless you are packing down some serious calories I doubt you gained 5lbs. of LBM/fat in one week.:)
Give it one more week, and I am sure the weight gain will "plane off" so to speak. This is assuming of course that you did not increase cals dramatically from the get go.

Thanks for the quick response, brad.
True, I guess I was just getting a little anxious. :) I'm sure the poundage gains will decrease significantly by week 4. And I didn't increase my calories by THAT much. At least I don't think so, hehe.
make sure to weigh yourself the same time of the day.
morning is the best time

By the way, here's my diet in case anyone is wondering. I think it's solid... If anyone wants to count the calories, go for it. :)
800am: 2 whole egg, 6 egg white omelet
1 cup oatmeal with syrup
1030am: 2 chicken breasts
3 slices wheat bread
1 pineapple cup
100pm: 1 can tuna
300pm: 1.5 cups flax cereal
1/4 cup raisins
Post workout: Pro Complex 55g protein mix with skim milk
600pm: 2 salmon fillets
1 cup Brown Rice
830pm: 1 cup oatmeal with syrup
Dinner varies, but I gave what I'm having tonight. Diet is about 25:65:10 protein:carbs:fat. It's adapted from a diet that Lee Haney used.
