Hey, most of my friends and family know jack **** about nutrition and lifting so I guess thats why I'm here. I've been on the same diet for about 4 weeks and have been lifting 4 days a week for an hour a session training 2 bodyparts a day. I'm impressed with my muscular development, especially shoulders, tris, and chest. So my development is not the problem. Its basically the fact that I went from being 138lbs with a nice looking cut up stomach to being 143 lbs and the only time you can see my abs is in the morning on an empty stomach. Whats the deal? I did up my cals slightly but not dramatically. I went from 1800 to 2200 just to add a little bulk. I like the muscle gains, but not the fat layer thats starting to go over my 6 pack. My maintenance is 2100. I eat 2200. Heres my diet. Tell me what i should do to keep getting the gains but leave the fat gains behind.

Meal 1
1 cup oats
1 1/2 scoop whey

(465 calories)

Meal 2
3 slices WW bread
1 can tuna
2 slice fat-free cheese

(370 calories)

Meal 3
1/2 cup brown rice
2 cans chicken
1 slice fat-free cheese

(400 calories)

Meal 4
1 banana
1 1/2 scoop whey

(290 calories)

Meal 5
1 cup oats
1 1/2 scoop whey
2 T natty peanut butter

(665 calories)

Well, thats it. I', a picky eater so this is what appeals to to my taste buds. But please tell me what I can do to keep getting the muscle gains I have been without the unwanted fat.:confused:

A couple of thougts:

1) you may want to move the oats from the last meal of the day (stick to protein and fat)

2) aside from 1 banana, you have no fruits or vegetables. you may want to consider replacing some of you bread/rice with some fruits/vegetables

3) drink lots of water!!!!
