Up your total caloric intake by adding in added carbs along with the protein. Adjust your training (have you been using the current training program prior to the start of this bylk?). Also how many calories are you taking in (and are you an endo/beginner?) because thats a lot of weight for 1 month.

Hard to believe you did that with no supps even being that low, but i'm a hard gainer haha so it seems impossible to me. i'll take your word for it though. good job bro. But once you start getting bigger it becomes harder and harder to gain weight. so no offense, just dont expect that 210 to come as easy as the 180

If your doing this naturally, there is NOWAY you could possibly put on that much muscle on in 34 days. Most likely, most of your gains you have made is water and fat. Realistically, if your natural, you should be aiming for about a 1 pound a week. The only two situations i could think of where this would be fiesable is if:
1. Your new to training, and your a genetic FREAK
2. Muscle memory, you've been at that build before
"If your training naturally, you can't force muscle on, it's a long process, consistency is key"
my advice to you is to figure out your maintance calorie intake, add 500 er so calories on top of that. Every week weigh in. If your up in weight, continue with that calorie intake. if your at the same weight, up the calorie intake another 250 to 500 calories. This process will allow you to maximize lean mass gains, while keepin fat gains at bay.
