I've been visiting this forum for a while, but hadn't actually taken the time to register up until now. Reason I'm doing it now is because I could really use some help. I've been working out for well over a year, and have gone from weighing 143 pounds to 167 (I'm 6 feet tall by the way). I'd like to gain about 20 more pounds of muscle in the coming year, but progress has been slow lately. It actually seems like I'm gaining more fat than muscle at the moment (body fat at 19% right now). Since I do notice myself growing stronger (I keep a training log, working out 3-4 times a week), I figure that my workout is not the problem. So probably my diet is. I've also been weighing myself weekly for the past two months, and I've gained very little during this period (about 2,2 pounds in total).
My diet right now consists of about 6-8 meals a day, averaging about 3000-3100 calories and about 150 grams of protein (this includes incomplete proteins as well). I've been doing some research, and have encountered some information saying it is actually possible I'm gaining fat because I'm not eating enough, rather than too much. Could this actually be the problem? Also, I've read something about the protein - carbs - fat ratio having to be around 30 - 50 - 20. If this is the case, my protein is probably not high enough. Any tips as to how to improve my diet (and my gains!) would be greatly appreciated!
