5000 is a lot for 198lbs. For example I am 260 and 4000-4300 is putting muscle on for me. I also train 2 hours a day 5 days a week.

Maybe if you were a full time coal miner who moonlights as a lumberjack you could burn all those calories. Otherwise, technically yes you will gain muscle, but you will gain significant fat as well. I’m 6’3″, 240 lbs 200 of which is lean mass and my caloric maintenance is 3300 calories. Any calories over 3600 would cause unwanted fat gain.

Find a TDEE calculator online, fill it out (request maintenance if they ask “lose weight” or “gain muscle”). Take the number they give you for total calories and add 300 to it. You can add as much as 500 if you want but no more.

I use to weigh 180 lbs right out of high school. I ate ~4800 calories/day. Despite 8 years of physically demanding jobs and 6 years of working out, last June I hit 287 lbs and ~30% body fat. Control your appetite now before it ruins your life like it almost ruined mine.
