    Damn "Spring Reset" at the store has me doing far too much manual labor. I'm fairly consistent in consuming 4400-4600 calories a day and it isn't enough. I was 202lbs 2 weeks ago. Stepped on the scale today and I'm a paltry 197lbs...though I had been sweating quite alot today and may not have drank enough water (but I don't think I lost a lb from sweat). I need to just man up and go to 5000calories or more until the reset is done. I think I'll just drink sodas all day long instead of water...ah, the worthless calories from soda, just what the doctor ordered!

    you're right...worthless cals from soda are just that.. worthless. Its time to start eating entire chickens .. i would just stop by any local food store and buy one for 4$ cooked. It helped me a lot

    I have whole chickens for nearly every other lunch. Plus I add about 3 servings of oatmeal or a can of refried beans and a couple servings of veggies and an apple.

    I guess a better question would be ..How long have you been at 4500 cals?

    Since the middle of March. Started at around 4000 calories at the beginning of February and at a weight of about 178lbs or so.

    there's your problem, you have to compensate for more weight

    I found out the scale sucks ass...(I didn't think I'd lose 5lbs in 2 weeks just from a bit more physical activity at work).

    I played around with it today to see if it were precise. I found that if I stand with my heels at the back edge of the scale I weigh about 197lbs but if I stand anywhere closer to the middle or front of the scale I get a consistent reading of 202lbs (which means I still need to eat a little more than I am now to gain faster).

    Lesson learned: I need to go buy my own bathroom scale and weigh myself in the morning right after I wake up for more consistent tracking of my weight gain progress.
