what is your body fat ? how many cals a day is your diet ? if you are not couting cals it's rather hard to nail the diet down to lose or gain weight.

join up at fitday.com it's a very easy way to count cals

i used fitday and the above without protein shakes and dextrose was 2400 calories which is my bodyweight * 12 +- ...

i have never got my BF tested but i reckon is around 20%

I'd use the mirror more than the scale. But anyway, what is the ratio of p/c/f? If you aren't shedding the fat, lower the calories more. Are you doing any cardio or lifting?

yeah i do 4 or 5 days a week lifting

day 1 chest, shoulders, tri's
day 2 back and bi's
day 3 legs
day 4 chest, shoulders, tri's
day 5 back and bi's

cardio wise i do 3 days a week riding 8 miles

protein 42% carbs 38% fat 20%

I use the mirror as a judge cos i am noticably changing but my weight is stayin constant. i am happy to slowly replace fat with muscle as my gains progress but i would preferably like to lose a bit of weight as well.
