Gaining 15 pounds in 3 days is not at all normal.
only for a hot dog
It would depend on your height,age and gender
You could be gaining muscle. Muscle is heavier than fat and take up less space than fat. That's what is going on with me i recently started working out and i was a 100 pounds and gained 16.
At least 230 pounds without any muscle mass is considered Overweight, and about 300 pounds with no muscle is considered Obese.
Generally you will gain about 2 pounds of muscle a month when body building when you are a strict beginner and working really hard at eating proper. If you are gaining much more then that I would be concerned that it isn't all muscle gain.
Exercise at times can definitely make you gain weight especially if your workouts are mainly muscle building instead of cardio. Muscle weighs more than fat so sometimes gaining weigh isn't such a bad thing, especially if its muscle. In the long run gaining a few pounds of muscle is very beneficial towards you because the stronger your muscles are the faster and easier it will be to burn calories.
Muscle mass must build slowly over time. Research has shown that muscle mass only increases after several weeks or months of continual loading.
you become anorexic....yeah no. you have to be extremely active cut alcohol, candy, fastfood and soda out of your diet completely. avoid red meat. do alot of cardio. dont do to much strength training because strength training gives you muscle and musclle weighs more than fat. if you want to lose 30 pounds you dont want to be gaining alot of muscle, i hope this helped good luck!
That's impossible, if anything would make you gain that amount of muscle it would be steroids. I weigh 240 lbs, 15 % body fat, and I never gained more than 1 pound of muscle in a week (a good week) WITHOUT roids. DO NOT take roids
It depends on your purspose and what you are free to do. When I joined the Army I started hetting more than regular exercise and eating three high calorie square meals a day. In four months I gained almost twenty five pounds of muscle. This was without weight traing, just calisthenics and running. I imagine if you started to have bigger more nutritious meals and alternate lifting weights and running you could buff up quite a bit. It all depends on if you want be a body builder or just buff.
it represents pounds of muscle or fat
Yes. If you are working out and gaining muscle tone, then it is reasonable that you may gain a little weight (a few pounds) or not lose as much weight as you normally would have if you were just losing "fat" weight. It is good that you are losing fat! In addition, you may be putting on some water weight as your body adjusts. This will go away completely within a few weeks or so. If this is not the case, and you are losing "fat" but still gaining weight, you may want to see a nutritionist or doctor to find out why that would be happening. Absent of that, there is nothing wrong with gaining a few pounds of muscle as you lose fat.
A person can gain 7 pounds in 1 month by increasing the amount of fat that is consumed in their diet. This can also be done by gaining muscle by working out at the gym.
just as if you were to lose weight, gaining is the same process but backwards. in losing weight, you should lose one to two pounds a week, so in gaining, you should gain one to two pounds a week, depending on what you choose. you can increase your diet by 500 calories and if you want to gain weight by muscle mass, you lift weights to gain more muscle mass too. don't think gaining too much weight too fast isn't as bad as losing weight to fast. gaining too fast can result in heart problems especially when you are older. you may not notice them at first, but over a long period of time, they will show. also in gaining and losing weight, doctors suggest not to drink alcohol.
Practically - Not Possible. Gaining 1 to 2 pounds of muscle in a week is achievable but very difficult for a hard working body builder who eats and workouts religiously. 5 lbs of muscle in a week is impossible. You can gain 5 lbs of fat in a week if you just eat, eat and eat...
Your body was used to working out, I stopped lifting for not even a week because i was sick and i lost about 4 pounds of muscle.
They weigh the same
depends. it can take anywhere from 1-5 months
Muscle is not technically heavier, but it is more dense than fat. So five pounds of muscle will be much smaller looking than five pounds of fat.
Well, it depends if the 186 pounds is mostly fat, or if it is muscle. If it is muscle, no, if it is fat, yes.
You cannot gain one to two pounds of muscle in one week. It takes time to build muscle. For information about how to build muscle correctly, please see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions. you can if your looking for muscle mass. but you can't gain 3 pounds of muscle unless your on steroid's.
Yes, because as the size of your muscle increases, the mass of your muscle increases. And when the mass of your muscle increases, so does the weight.
You can't build muscle that quickly. The fastest program I know of (starting strength) will put on about 20 pounds in 2 weeks.(if you eat enough) Most of that is fat which aids in muscle growth but it would be maybe 7 pounds...not very noticeable. Stick with it for 2-3 months and you'll see some massive gains. So look up starting strength
