Looking at this i think i'd like to boost my calories and fats by just a little bit, cut out about 100g of carbs and about 75g of protein. what do you guys think??

I forgot to mention that I usually have a serving of atlarge's Results about an hour before my evening work-out and that I drink a 20oz Powerade during that workout.

My daily supplimentation consists of entirely of atlarge products. They are Nitrean, ETS, Opticen, Results, Fish Oil, and Multi-plus.

I've been on this diet for about 8 weeks now, and have gained a total of 2 pounds :( any help would be appreciated

Are you trying to gain weight or what? Stop counting all this stuff and put some food in your mouth. When you get full, keep eating. Sorry to break it to you, but it's as simple as eating more food and staying on top of your conditioning. If you think you're going to gain 15-20lbs eating this, you're in for a rude awakening. Gain some fat and watch how much muscle you put on.

I'm getting fat, again, so I thought I'd stop by and feel like I'm dieting by reading the Diet/Nutrition section.
