To be honest, I see a significant increase in the gut, and limited muscle development.

For four weeks though, I guess you can't expect much gains, but I would rethink your diet.


i agree 100% on both.
i really don't get why everyone is expecting to see results after such a short period of time.

Pancakes have fat, that's for sure. I'd say something like 20 % of energy at least even if they're low fat.

I've made them essentially non-fat before. Wheat flour, non-fat soymilk, and applesauce (as needed). Not as tasty, obviously, but very, very low fat. About 1-2%.

Can't really get around the fat in chickpeas and oats, though. They're both around 15-20%.

update..

Rested for two weeks.. Started training but became sick with flu and shit..

Post my results from the last month of trying to overeat.

First two weeks was shit due to me trying to use free weights wich sucked ass.. (for my 1 set to failure purpose)
So I dicided to use machines week 3 and 4 and this produced a much better result (failure = hunger = more overeating wise)

before after

neck 42,5 -> 43
chest 108 -> 110
thigh 59 -> 61
calf 40 -> 40
upper arm 35 -> 35
forearm 32,5 -> 33
waist 81 -> 83,5
ass (at widest) 98 -> 101

bah

start weight 88.4
end weight 91.5 ca

In the future I'll use legpress + smithbench + pullup machine + machine rows and thats it. 1 set each.
No more free weights for this purpose


someone will undoubtly whine, saying I only gain fat or somethin... :popcorn:
The pic is me from the first experiment and me now.
Total training time now would be 1 month + the two shit weeks + the two better weeks
the rest of the weeks i didn't train or overeat
some 10 kgs gained = 22 pounds

Fat or not you be the judge

I've tried my hand at overeating and it's just a bad idea. If your goal is to gain solid muscle mass consider two things:

1) It takes time. Why try to rush weight gain? The more you bulk up the more you'll have to cut later. Take it slow and appreciate any gain.

2) One pound of muscle equals about 600 calories. If you wanted to gain 10 pounds (solid) in a year that means you'd need, get this, 24 calories more than what you absolutely need to sustain your current weight. That comes to two bites of an apple more a day.
