Default Transition from cutting to maintenance and weight gain

Hi!

I've been cutting for 2 months with 2000 cals. Now I've made a transition into a maintenance diet with 2500 cals.

After 10 days eating 2500 cals, mi weight has increase from 161 lbs to 165lbs... My question here is if that could represent a real fat gain, or it's just more glycogen in my muscles, or even just water retention?

With the information you gave, no one can give you an accurate opinion.

The numbers in calories you "state" are your maintenance calories are basically meaningless, without your weight, age, (I assume you are male), macros, alcoholic beverages consumed or not, and such factors as exercise (type and duration), so on and so forth.

In addition, the cutting history prior to allowing your calories to go to approximate maintenance, "can be" a variable in the equation. Dependent upon macro variables and training.

You need to provide more personal information. My initial thought with the time frame assumed, is water retention and other related things--but this is just an overview, information not withstanding.

+1 on water.

It's too quick a gain to be fat (on those numbers).
