I can't figure it out. Now I'm a pretty good size guy already. I started gear 14 days ago. I lift 4-5 days a week. I use a elliptical machine for 20 min's 4 days a week. This is what i can't figure out. 1) I'm only taking in about 3000-4000 cal's a day. 2) I've put on 16 lbs in those 14 days. From 254 to 270. Also I set up a pretty nice gym in this 18' x 26' living room. Got rid of all the furnisher. The wife's not to happy, but F--k it. She"s young and will get over it. I told her I had a new girlfriend and her name is "Lifting Weights".
