Journey to Hope

RE: Journey to Hope
Yep, you are definitely going to want to stay at TDEE (once you reach that) for at least 12 weeks. It seems like an eternity now, but if you take your time during this part you will reap the rewards soon enough...

As far as the weight gain, the first several pounds was most likely just water weight as glycogen stores were refilled. This gain is inevitable and happens whenever you begin to increase your calories. TOM is almost certainly to blame for the other part of that gain, and it will most likely disappear in a week or so. As to whether to increase or not, go with how you feel in your gut. Perhaps with TOM coming and the associated bloating and cramps you might feel better just hanging out at this level until that passes. Or, if you are eager to get the process over, then by all means make that increase. Do whatever is going to make you feel better. There is really no correct answer, so just pick the one that will cause you the least amount of stress :-)
