Weight gain (muscle)

I know they say muscle weighs more than fat but how much weight can you put on from muscle?
Ive been going to the gym for 2 weeks, doing weights etc I've eaten soooooo clean. But I've put on 1kg. Could this be muscle?

yep. muscle weighs more than fat, but takes up less space.
Weight training builds lean muscle.
that is why the BMI is so crap, it does not take into account the muscle on people, only the weight. ( which is what I told my doctor on Thursday) he smiled....

OP Yes bmi is so stupid. I hubby is very fit and so ripped and apparently he is morbidly obese by the bmi haha
