  • Weight gain and waist size

    Some context I'm 6'3 @ 190lbs waist 36.5" currently on a build plan eating ~3500, gaining about 2 lbs per month. My Goal is to end around 210 lbs and have 33-34" waist. Is this an optimal rate to continue my journey on keep doing what I'm doing OR decrease calories closer to maintenance at 3250 so my waist size is what I want to be when I reach 210?

    In a caloric surplus, your waist circumference is likely going to increase or maintain, but if you want to, you can give it a try for a couple of weeks and see how it changes. Or, you can stay at maintenance or a deficit until it drops down to 32-33" and then increase the calories.
