After mostly just running over the summer and not lifting, I began lifting heavy and eating tons of protein 2 months ago. In that period of time (2 months) I put on 20 pounds.
My strength has been going up at an incredible rate during that time frame, but it of course will slow soon. But my bench/squat/deadlift are all higher than they have ever been.
I have been eating a ton. Several protein shakes a day, usually one protein bar, and any food I please to fill me up.
Obviously my weight gain is not all muscle (though I now have more muscle than I have ever had before), and my gut is starting to expand too much. But I am loving the strength increases I have been getting from the massive amount of calories/protein I've been eating.
Should I continue my current diet until the strength gains slow and then clean it up a bit? I know that I will eventually have to burn all this excess fat that comes with my gains but I am wondering if you guys have any input. Thanks.
