    At the beginning of weight training and diet program, its not unusual for an idividual to gain at a fast rate, but overtime you will plateau. When you do up your carb intake. You will gain some fat, but during a bulking cycle i wouldnt worry too much, just try to keep it to a minimum. You have to consider this--- 10lbs of lean muscle in a year is considered very good.

    Shoot for a pound a week and you'll be OK.
