Gaining Weight Fast Beginner

#1 Postby Hoffman2626 » Fri Jun 02, 2017 2:47 pm


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!

Just make sure you are documenting your caloric intake as well as macros daily. If weight doesn't increase, increase your caloric intake and/or carb intake. Hope that helps.
