View Full Version : My attempt at gaining weight

11-01-2004, 11:51 PM
This is the my first time posting in this forum.

Ive recently been on a long cut, got down to 12%bf and was very lean and impressed with my physique. However I would like to start adding some mass to my body. I recently increased my carb intake, starting eating more "normal foods" Not so low carb ones. However I have already in the last 2-3 weeks noticed that im getting a little "puffy" and losing definition. Im getting a little scared of bulking, I used to be a little chubby and dont want to get too fat.

Your advice on my daily routines and diet would be greatly appreciated.
