    See how it goes over the next month or so. You'd like to be in the 1-2 pound per month range. It can be more in the first couple of months. But after that it should settle to 1-2 pounds.

    Your arms and quads looks like they picked up more size. Those 5-7 pounds look like nothing on you. You're seeing fat gains that really aren't there. :)

    Is this an ad for your blog? What is clean eating? "We" do not advocate "clean" eating. It's a recipe for eating disorders.

    No, you're not supposed to pack the measuring cup :)
