Thanks for the replies guys and it's interesting to see your different points of view based on your experiences. I'm not sure if anyone is interested but here is my weekly weight since Iv'e started training seriously after a 3 week break. Note that before the break I was around 228lbs. I have been taking my weight every friday in the morning since.
Week 1- 224.6lbs
Week 2- 224.4lbs
Week 3- 229.6lbs
Week 4- 235lbs
Week 5- 236lbs
Week 6- 240lbs
During this time I have nothing else to do except workout, eat and sleep. So I'm trying my best to gain mass. However, I have definitely noticed that I have been gaining fat around my lower abdomen and that Im starting to get love handles.
Should I immediately change my diet, or carry on the same? I have noticed all my lifts have been going up and I feel great in the gym.
I would also like to mention that I'm currently not doing any cardio.
Any feedback would be great. I don't have anyone to go to for help.
