Sure my lifts have gone up but appearance wise, nothing.
I think it's because I was eating a VERY low calorie diet until about a week ago. For the first month I was living on 1500 calories, that wasn't working, so about the middle of February i started eating a 1300 calorie (or less) diet
April 2nd I started my easter holidays, at that time I was 115 lbs and for the whole 2 weeks i was binge eating, I'd eat until i couldn't eat anymore wait an hour and eat again. Last Monday I started a clean 2300 calorie bulk (although I think I'm going to need to lower my calories to about 2100 because I think my maintenance is 1900 and I only want to be gaining around 2 lbs a month) and I was doing FANTASTIC until Thursday came around, I started celebrating 420 with my friends (I know how bad that sounds, don't judge me lol) and I was back to binge eating because of my munchies. I weighed myself this morning and I don't know if my scales off because I don't see 20 lbs of fat gain on me, but it said 135 lbs... should i cut back to 115 and then restart my bulk? or should I just continue? I want to put on 15 lbs of muscle, and I really don't want to look fat...
Now I'm back on my game, doing a full body work out (all pro's) 3x a week, do you think i can do it 4? so instead of mon, wed, fri it can be mon, wed, fri, sun ? I'm not doing any cardio... but I kind of want to start, i miss it lol I might start a kickboxing class, or do you think that will mess up my gains?
but if i stick to a clean 2100 calorie diet, the full body 3-4x a week, cardio (a spin class or something) once a week how long do you think I'll see gains? What kind of gains do you think i'll be seeing in a year ?
thanks for all your help. I just found this website and I've been lurking around, it's great!
