I am new here. I have started training a little over a month ago. In the last month eating 2500 calories a day I have gained over 8 pounds. I started at 130 and am now at 138. I keep monitoring and notice a gradual increase of 2 pounds a week. I'd like to be at .5-1 pound a week. If I cut back any more calories I will be at around 2000. According to every single BMR calculator and all of that online that's way lower than they say. I am 5'7" and started at 130. I know it's fat, water, and a little muscle but it keeps going up steadily. 2000 seems too little especially trying to get 130g protein a day. Could it be possible I only burn around 1600-1700 calories a day even with excercise and only require 2000 to be in a decent surplus? Trying to figure out how much to eat has been the hardest part so far!
