I have been feeding the Chicken Soup for Cat's (both dry & wet) for about a month but I also rotate with other wet and dry foods so I am not the best to answer....*but*....
Many cats may bulk up when switching to more premium diets --- but when I say 'bulk up' I don't necessarily refer to fat gains.
A few of my cats seem to developing better muscle tone over the last couple of months. Just like in humans, when we are eating better and exercising, we may show better tone and muscle which can *appear* as bulk but its actually more definition. Lean muscle mass.
When switching over to higher grade foods, you should find your cats are eating *less* on average. But they may have overall better tone and definition which may appear at first to seem like weight gains.
THat has been my experience working with and having pets.....
Probably not the 'leanest' of diets out there but certainly not an unhealthy one:

Both Nutro and Chicken Soup are quality foods, and both have some extras. They actually seem pretty comparable? You may not see much of a change.
