so i started lifting sept 06, was at 155 ish, now i am only at about 170 and have been lifting 3-4x a week since then. pretty pitiful. i realized a few months ago my routines were bad, and now im doing wbb 1.1. but i also just realized i only take in about 1500-2000 calories a day just bc i naturally have a small stomach i think and never have needed a lot of food as i was a runner in HS and ate a lot then, but not as much now. i recently started drinking whey after working out and such. but i dont know waht else i can do to make sure im getting enough cals to get bigger. maybe more shakes? what kinds of foods are high in cals that i can add on? thanks guys.

Milk milk milk, whole milk. I drink at least 3/4 gallon a day to get all my cals in.

Also I started eating Sam's Choice Mountain Trail Mix. 600 cals per Cup.

post your routine, chances are that since you havent been dieting you dont have to work too hard tor one.

For a person of your height aim for 2750 calories for now and see how that goes.

you gotta do more weight, plain and simple. i suggest lowering the reps if your going for strength. 6-8 for size

i dont know about that, ive been trying to get close to 3k calories a day, also ive been doing more legs, which i didnt use to do. i think legs are underrated and are a good place to put on weight and strength. also just started with deadlifts which i never did. im afraid my upper body will lose some strength, but im not sure ....

Why would your upper body lose strength? If anything it WILL get stronger if you squat and deadlift. You can't have a strong back if you don't deadlift or squat (or something similar).
