    did i gain weight too fast?

    as of august 1st i weighted in at 140-145. i went to the doctor tuesday and their scale said i weighted 176 now and my home scale reads around 172-173. i always weigh my self in the morning before i eat anything. ive been bulking fairly clean with no fast food/fried food. i do have more of a gut than i use to and have gained 3-3.5" on my stomach.

    oh and im planning on cutting at 180 so should i not worry about it too much right now since im almost at my goal weight?

    you gaine 25-30 lbs in 4 months. That's about 2 lb/ week. Not optimal to keep the fat down, but not bad either. But really it's entirely personal. If you're feeling fat, cut early. If not, keep going.

    id say keep going, get used to the gut. It will come off with a good cut but you may as well get as much mass as you can before you decide to do so. Keep riding this sweet bulk you got goin on. I just started mine last month!
