    0.5 lbs/week is a good target for novice trainees

    I'm going to assume you or someone you know started lifting weights and gained 5 pounds in the first month.

    A newb can gain muscle quickly, but with that also comes an increase of water retention and a possible increase of body fat as well.

    Indeed.

    I calculate in kg usually and I thought that .5lbs means 5 lbs (2.26 kg) and not half a pound (0.5 lbs).

    Could probably gain 2 lbs of muscle in a month, but they would need to bulk hard enough they would gain a lot more of non-muscle.

    Maybe if it was a 18 year old kid could it be lean

    As mentioned in the first reply, you can have some noob gains in that some quicker cellular changes can happen in the very beginning- possibly having more solutes in the cells for a variety of reasons and with it more water. That's a far cry from the type of sustained gains one will see over the long haul though and shouldn't last for very long.

    Much more simple, after you get used to it.

    1000 grams - 1 kilogram
    1000 mililiters - 1 liter
    1000 meters - 1 kilometer

    Dr Axe's 5 cent to the topic

    1.Intermittent Fasting
    2.Heavy Weight Training
    3.Healthy Fats
    4.Liver Detox
    5.Stress Reduction
    6.Vitamin D
    7.Kick the Sugar Habit
    8.Get Quality Sleep
    9.Lower Body Fat Percentage



    All of these risk factors deplete the normal immune response, lead to obesity and diabetes, tax the body and decrease metabolism. This, my friends, is the recipe for low T-levels and most people are stuck on the gerbil wheel desperate for a ticket to get off of the ride:


    Chronic stress
    Insufficient nutrition
    Imbalanced microflora
    Low vitamin D levels
    Weight gain
    Inadequate exercise
    Prescription drugs (especially statins)
