Three or four weeks ago I checked my weight, and then I checked my weight again today and it went up 5.5 lb. I`ve been lifting for a while, but how do I know that the weight is muscle and not fat? Thanks.

Weight Gain with Lifting

It's unlikely that any weight gain will be 100% muscle, but if you've been lifting weights and haven't changed your eating habits, you can be confident your weight gain is mostly muscle. Even if you've been eating a little more, you probably won't gain much fat unless you've added a lot of high fat junk food.
