So I'm 18 and I've been bulking for four months and have gained about 14 kgs in that time after starting out as a beginner. After these 4 months I've definetly noticed that my legs, chest and arms are bigger but my stomach area is just fat nothing good looking about it and kind of gets me done. Everything has gone great, seem excellent strength gains as well as muscle Gaines week by week by my stomach is an issue and eating this amount of food everyday is tiresome.

So now I'm at a crossroad, the way my midsection is I'm thinking about toning up because I've never been lean in my life always a bit chubbier so I'd love to see the way I look but also don't want to lose the strength I've gained which mean I'd continue for another two months before thinning down.

Advice would be much appreciated guys cheers.

I'm not surprised 14kg in 4months is Ludacris amounts of weight to gain.
Half of that would've been a goal gain for a beginner at the max !!

So should I just tone up, drop the weight and then start over in about 4-6 months time, won't be that hard to drop weight I've done it before and know how to diet well for it.

@Tmacca I;m with @FiremanSi, that is a lot of weight to gain in a short period of time. Where you dirty bulking? There are smarter ways to bulk i.e. adding specific amount of calories to maintenance then seeing what it does then make adjustments. It's difficult to determine how to approach this. What i would do is take the caloric intake that you are consuming right now and subtract 500 calories. Then adjust your calories each week to the point where you will lose 1-2 lbs a week. By doing this you will be able to not lose a lot of muscle gain.
