the week before i started bulking, i did alot of cardio to kinda flush my system out. durring this time i lost about 7 lbs of water weight. ever since ive been eating like a hoss and lifting almost every day. im 160 and consume at least 3000 cals a day w/ an ample amount of protein. but every time i step on the scale i get progressively lighter. when i look in the mirror it seems im losing fat and gaining muscle. now i am in no way sad if this is happening but from what ive read, if you are gaining muscle, you tend to gain fat along with it. could i really be gaining muscle and lose this much fat in an excess of calories? or is it newb gains? or should i just try and choke down more calories in a day? because with the amount of weight ive lost it couldnt possibly be all water weight.
