.5 what? kilos, pounds, grams, metric tons?
Ahh shoot. I meant .5lbs
Noob gains are real. But .5lbs is realistic even in that regard.
More than 20 lbs of muscle in a month? Lol! No, impossibru.
0.5 lbs/week is a good target for novice trainees
20 lbs? Lol
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.
Your reading skills need work, haha.
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.
haha, i can somewhat relate because i'm currently working in a country and have still yet to get used to using kg instead of lbs.
Much more simple, after you get used to it.
1000 grams - 1 kilogram
1000 mililiters - 1 liter
1000 meters - 1 kilometer
Not being a smartass, I truly consider US to be the greatest country ever when it comes to inventions and technological development.

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:
Low vitamin D levels
Prescription drugs (especially statins)
