    Arrow How much weight gain per week?

    People normally suggest .5-1 lb / week for clean bulk (limiting fat gains while gaining muscle). My question is, How do I know if I should gain .5 lb/week or 1 lb / week? I've been lifting for a little over a year now.

    if you're legit 92lb and been lifting for over a year, then I don't think it should concern you. Just eat.

    For more than half the year, I was lifting to lose weight and had anorexia. I am now recovering from it.

    Yeah, I already know that. But is .5 optimal or 1lb/week optimal? 1lb/week lets me eat more food that I love, but I also don't want to be gaining more fat than 50/50 (muscle/fat) ratio.

    At your weight I'd say 1. But I could be wrong, one of the more experienced guys on here can probably help you more.

    In anorexic subjects, such as yourself, the recovery period where caloric energy is present in larger amounts (500 kcal plus a day.), the subject experiences more tissue regrowth with minimal fat gains. The body is an amazing machine and some take it for granted sometimes. I can't find the study done on anorexics, but Wonder Pug was the one who posted it over the summer.

    Please excuse me if that came across as offensive, as that was not the intention.

    Start with 1lb per week. It will take you a long time to get fat, but if you honestly think you're gaining too much fat then you can cut it to .5lb. If you're not progressing as fast as you'd like too, I'd raise the surplus even higher.

    I had been eating 1350 calories and exercising 2-3 hours a day
    in the hospital I was on bed rest eating 2k, then 3k, then 4k until I started gaining because my body went into refeed mode
    all my organ systems needed to be getting doing again, hormones, tissue repair

    moral of the story, when dealing w/ ED issues, throw general guidelines right out the window
    when dealing with <18yrs old, throw guidelines out the window
    when 16yrs old, 92 lbs, eat and eat and eat and take advantage of your prime years of growth

    Speaking from experience, do what's most comfortable for you mentally. Some people just like to "get it over with" and get there then worry about building muscle once they're at a healthier weight. For me, though, I've done it both ways and am much, much more comfortable with taking it as slow as possible. Once in treatment I was forced to gain around 4-5lbs per week and that was the time I relapsed pretty much immediately because I had no time to adjust to the size changes. On the other hand, once in a residential program I only had to gain around .5-1lb per week over a few months and stayed healthy for a really long time and felt really good after that. So it's really up to you what you can handle best Take care.
