Default 7 pounds

Well not even a week in and per the scales, it seems that I'm up 7 pounds already. I realize that weight fluctuates daily but usually I was always in a 1 pound range on any given day. My BF% seems to be about the same and the amount of muscle mass that the scale calculates is up about 3-4 pounds. Somehow I don't think that is representative of true muscle mass gain but rather excess calories on my body that the scale probably doesn't know where to classify.

I am now just under 174 pounds which is the heaviest I have been in over a year. Is there a more scientific way to calculate the amount of calories I should be eating or just play it by the feel of my growing gut.

Thanks
