Since July, ive gained about 30 solid pounds. The thing is, people have told me that 1 lb a week is the most I shoudl gain. I should have gained 16 pounds going like that.

The thing is, I was 145, and 5'11 (really underweight). I gained to 165 really quickly, stopped for a a few weeks, ate more, and am now 175. How much of what I gained is fat? Ive got pictures here http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=88320

My strength has has gone up ALOT, and so has my size. I just want to know if I did a stupid thing by eating so much, or really my eating went mostly to muscle mass.

Yes that was quick but:
You were a complete beginner
You were very underweight to start

Both of those factors mean you'll get a quicker weight gain at the start. I was exactly the same. I could literally see myself growing week to week when I started out eating more and following WBB1. The strength increases are nice too but they dont go at the same pace forever. I say make the most of it!
