Trying hard to figure out what happened and next steps, if any. Went to the doctor and got the news that I gained 15 pounds in 1.5 years. Please keep in mind that 15 pounds is 15 pounds of something, not all fat. I know it isn't all muscle, but not all fat either. Dr. mentioned that by looking at me she had no idea where I "put it" (I was underweight before, so could have used an add. 5 pounds, but not so sure about the 15!). Nothing has changed except my exercise routine. I eat the same amount of calories, following the PB. The only thing that has changed is that I have begun training as a power lifter and have ADDED this to the workout regime, so not deducting from what I have done before. Is it possible for me to actually gain that much weight (be it muscle, fat, or most likely combination) without eating more just based on that type of workout? I ask because Dr. now wants me to see an endocrinologist and I don't know how necessary it is. I also haven't had a period in 2 years which I always just associated with how hard I work out. I know that they are going to try and pump me full of fake hormones. Anyone else experience an obscene amount of muscle mass in a short time with exercise change?
No announcement yet.
Weight gain with no additional calories, but heavier lifting, possible?
