    can't see much of a difference. I looked a lot different when I gained that much, and the pics showed it.

    Don't see much either? Eat more? Lift heavier?

    gaining 4lbs a week is ultra-impressive. Gaining that much every week might actually start to freak me out at some point :rofl:

    2lbs a week is a lot

    you're gaining MAX 0.5 lb of muscle and like 1.5 lbs of FAT in those weeks

    revamp your diet, you should be patient and look forward to gaining pounds over a longer time, not 2 lbs per week :uh:

    to make lasting gains that aren't mostly fat, you should expect to see 1-2 lbs per 2/3 weeks if you're eating huge and well

    otherwise, since you're obviously eating a lot of junk, you'll be getting your 2 lbs, but you're gonna be a fat ass before you know it

    Well yeah I understand its a long time thing. But measuring a long time goal periodically is done through monitoring weight weekly.

    Besides, I thought the whole point of bulking was to eat a lot to gain mass, and lift heavy to gain muscle. I read that about 2342 times a day on here :o

    Yeah but you have to know your limits

    eating alot != eating 10 mcfatty burgers a day and expecting to be jacked

    eating alot = eating a large amount of clean protein coupled with a huge amount of clean and some dirty carbs/fats

    bulking != eating mcdonalds 3 times a day

    the only fat I see are around my belly, which shouldn't be a problem once I cut.

    I haven't touch fast food for about 5 months now and don't drink soda. Most of my meals consist of rice and protein-rich food with it. Also 3 shakes a day.

    lol

    bulk doesn't necessarily mean a humungous intake of fat along with protein and huge carbs...

    there are better sources of bulking foods

    honestly, if you're making gains in the gym and are content with your body and know when it's time to cut or add cardio, i wouldn't change anything. get huge, every persons body doesn't work the same

    Only eaten fast food once in the past 2 weeks. And it was a spicy chicken sandwich and a chili from Wendys :fawk: :wiggle:

    If you cut out gaining any fat, and gain that 0.5lbs of muscle a week it will take forever to get anywhere...

    I always read you Bulk, then Cut down...isn't gaining some fat per week part of this process?
