    keep in mind im a fucking noob though. I used to be about 185 ( 5'11) Started eating clean doing 4 miles of cardio every day and yoga every other day and dropped to about 165 after a few months.

    I decided that I im at a pretty good weight so I started lifting past 2 month every other day and only using whey protein as supplement and after about 2 months I am at about 173 and not much change in diet and cardio routine. No fuck way i put on 8 lbs of muscle. Where the fuck is all this weight coming from? isnt muscle supposed to burn fat?

    This isn't too hard to figure out. Have you put on a bunch of fat? If you are eating clean and lifting, it's muscle and water.

    Because you're storing more glycogen in your muscle tissue and your muscles are retaining more water. :hsugh:

    shut the fuck up, check your diet. you're doing something wrong or probably high chances of it being water weight.
