    Unhappy Feeling stuck

    Last year during covid I went on a bulk taking me from around 60kg to 63ish, i was eating around 2400 a day. I’m 5’7 btw.

    I was on mass gainers and in and out of good diet but look like I packed on good muscle, but also with thag came a bit more fat thag I had hoped, so I then cut, but cut so much I lost my size and now I’m down to 58kg. I just can’t seem to grt the right back on, I’m now eating around 2500 a day and havnt seen the scale jump up.

    I know eating more is the answer but just trying to be careful as I get want more of a lean bulk than an agressive one. Any tips on how I can move forward?

    Thanks so much

    You already answered it..

    If you're literally gaining nothing... then why are you concerned about gaining fat if you increase calories slightly?

    Eat more.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    It takes 3500 calories you didn't need to eat to make you gain 1lb of fat. So you can see that adding 200 or so per day is in no way going to suddenly make you blow up.

    Add a controlled amount of calories, focus on progressive overload and muscle will come in time. If you put on 2lbs over night and feel bloated, it's water.
