        if you are noticing a lot of fat yeah
        unless you're a skeletor you should ease back on it
        bulking too hard is literally everyone's first mistake in the gym

          I'm eating 1800 calories, getting at least 80g protein starting at the line of underweight/normal for my height (5'10). I really don't feel like I'm bulking too hard.

            Ignore the moron. If anything you are not bulking hard enough. You did not get fat. You're just hyperfocused on it and noticing things that you didn't notice before. You can also just be a bit bloated. If you are starting at that line and keep bulking at nice 4lbs a month, then you won't notice actual fatness and chubbiness for another 40lbs at least unless you have very, very poor genetics. Source: started at the same place as you.

            Just ignore that crap for now. First comes strength and size. You're going to have to eat and get fatter first if you want to make actual progress. Accept it.
            >especially when I know that I gained muscle
            You can't (effectively) gain muscle without gaining any fat.

              Thank you anon. I've been training my core very hard so I'm gaslighting myself and saying that my abs are causing my fat to push put more.

              I think I am just hypersensitive to it, and noticing things more. It's only when I sit down that I feel fat, standing I have a mostly flat stomach.

                Make sure you're on a good program to nicely exhaust your beginner gains though. If you're just fricking around and doing random hypertrophy shit and isolations then it's probably going to be a bit different. Please don't focus on your tummy for now. Just do a few months of a beginner strength program, eat, and then reevaluate your goals after you get a nice base to work with. If you're trying to become ripped right from the start you'll be stuck making no good progress like so many other dyels who don't understand that it doesn't work that way. The type of dude who comes here asking why they are still weak and tiny (albeit with minor unimpressive visible dyel muscle if they take off their shirt). Effective progress requires you to get a physique you may not like as much first.

                But even then, if you're truly skinny right now you won't become genuinely chubby for a long time anyways. And even if you lose your visible ribs, you'll grow in size and strength and you'll probably feel like it's cool to be big even if it's not yet the zyzz body you're aiming for. Lifting takes time, don't make the mistake of only focusing on short term goals.

                NTA but I recommend you put everything as much on a factual basis as possible to avoid gaslighting yourself as long as you lack experience.
                More factual than feels:
                Cloth size/belt
                Measuring waist (though requires experience/good tool or it’s a waste)
                Progress pictures
                Counting cal intake and expenditure
                Advanced body composition measurements that give you a pretty exact picture of your gains, cost time and money though and might not be available to you

        Yes. That is 36lbs in a year. You really think you are putting 36lbs of LEAN muscle mass in a year?

        I'm eating 1800 calories, getting at least 80g protein starting at the line of underweight/normal for my height (5'10). I really don't feel like I'm bulking too hard.

        Especially if you are eating only 80g of protein. Like theoretically some 100lbs crackprostitute with IFBB pro coaching from day 1 could maybe put 36lbs considering that just by improving diet and living active lifestyle you would regain the muscles you should have just naturally in a non-malnourished state. But unless you are benching 225lbs for 10 reps etc, you didnt put and you are not putting 3lbs per month. Beginners can gain a bit more but generally after your first year of lifting you are looking between 5-10lbs per year and even that diminishes super fricking quickly.

          Bulking without taking roids will always result in more fat gain than muscle gain

          Post bodies, dyels. You are not gaining muscle without fat, and yes, 4lbs a month is realistic for a beginner.

          It's even more moronic to suggest that some noob could optimize his nutritional intake to the point of getting the exact amount of nutrients needed to gain the max possible amount of muscle with zero fat gained. It's going to be such a miniscule amount of fat that he'd just have to cut for a month to be nice and lean after a full year of bulking like this. Don't suggest beginners to eat too little and get on your dyel no-gain train.

        That's roughly 22.22 grams of muscle every day.

            Not if you are lifting fricking dumbass. The point is not to pig out on pizza and wings and write it off as bulking but rather know for certain what your intake is

              This guy doesn't understand that TDEE means Total Daily Energy Expenditure and that it includes the calories burned from moving around and sports. When people say "eat at a surplus of 500kcal" they mean "eat 500 kcal more than you would have to eat to not gain or lose any weight at this moment" you dumb tard. I'll give it to you, you're my favorite New Years resolution dyel this year so far.

    You should eat less sugar as it promotes more subcutaneous fat and visceral fat

      I eat pretty damn clean. Only water or black coffee, sardines every day, nuts, rice, fish and chicken and vegetables. Nothing overprocessed or sugary, maybe some dark chocolate every so often. No alchohol

      Is that true because of a unique quality of sugar? Or is it just because it’s easy to overdo carb intake via sugar? My only sugar sources are raw honey, dairy and fruit but that’s still interesting
