Weight increase is this normal

Yes another question im afraid

Ok I know that muscle weighs more than fat etc etc
My original starting weight 8 wks ago was 190lbs 29.1% body fat allegdly this was on a Gym machine so maybe right defo had manboobs etc.

anyway now 8 wks on my bodyweight has shot up to 200lbs ! now ive not actualy measured my true BF content as dont have access to calipers but from looking in the mirror and by the fit or lack of it should I say I know that my body fat has drasticaly reduced .. so the question is . this extra Bodyweight is it all muscle of extra water being retained.....

to be perfectly honest my diet has gone down the pan lately (im not to bothered in that im not intrested in getting massive or wanting 20" guns etc ) I just want to look proportined and lean and have muscle defination due to low BF rather than wanting to weigh 17st and be massive ... However saying that my diet is crap is it stil possible to add muscle my shoulders arms/legs have all developed well but is the end of the road in site what I mean is if my diet is pants then surley the rate of increase of muscle will slow down to almost 0 or is all this impresive start just down to me being new and the intial spurt of growth that everyone experiences..

this is an example of my diet for what it has been for the last few weeks

08.00wake whey in water
30 mins later 3 weetabix in S Skimmed milk also take 1000mg of flaxseed Oil

t09.00 raining days pre work out shake with water

09.15 Train

10.45 PWO shake in water maybe add some maltadextrine with Banana

13.00 Omlette with 6 egg whites and 2 full eggs

17.00 130 g Tuna samdwiches in 4 slices of bread

20.00 have been having either Whey in water again or Cottage cheese 300g Or Peanut butter on 2 slices of wholemeal Toast with low fat spread

23.00 Cottage cheese or whey in Milk

In between drink plenty of water and also eat quite a lot of fruit

None training days ill take one of the sakes Pre or PWO out and just have one around 11.00 also at weekends at the 18.00- 19.00 mark Ill have a proper dinner something like Beef or chicken or Ham with sweet potatoes and plenty of veg etc with muller yougharts I know it aint brill but im comfortable with it I feel hungry but at the moment have got a routine going that Im happy with .. just realy wondered how long it will last and if this is normal for a 1st timer ...

    the diet hasnt got that bad bud?

    I was expecting it to look like a trains smash but it looks ok ish to me still

    The key thing...and I know we have discussed this before.is as knighty says.....the mirror.

    Forget the scales, BMI index etcetcetc....you say you look better, then pat yourself on the back for a job well done....its about how you LOOK.....not about the stats a machine tells you

    keep at it bud

    Don't meen to be smart but muscle doesn't weigh more than fat. 1kg of muscle is the same as 1kg of fat. This theroy comes about because muscle is more dense than fat, so if you were to take the same area of muscle as fat then you would find the muscle weighing more, but that is just because muscle density is higher than fat. Don't meen to be a smart ass just thought i'd clear it up.

    yeah silly me m8 maths aint one of my strong point 1kg of anything is the same as 1kg of anything else of course just that you would obv need less muscle to reach that weight rather than fat is what I should have said - Nick thanks for clearing it up for me ill keep plodding on
