Is putting on weight good or bad for diving?

Im consciously trying to put on weight cause i am rather scrawny, and have put on 7kg so far.

So its not fat, its muscle i have gained, would this be good or bad for diving?

Simply

Fat Floats, Muscle Sinks

You will probably find that your weighting may be on the lighter side.

And for me Fat was a great insulator, which may mean you may need a Wet Suit that has a lot of rubber, maybe a 7mm. This will counteract the weighting issue mentioned above.
