I'm 5'7 3/4", about 152 pounds. Im content w/ my size...except my legs, which I need to work on cuz i always neglect them...so thats why my bodyweight is lower than what I appear to be...plus my bone structure is a lil smaller.

anyways, my goals are to maintain this size and increase strength while leaning up. i currently do AM cardio sessions about 3-4 times a week and I lift about 3-4 days a week, the 4th day depending on whether i do legs or not.

basically i cant keep a disciplined diet cuz i never really know what im doing...here's my typical daily diet plan:

Morning: bowl of cereal (fiber one), 1 whey protein shake (about 40g)
Lunch: 1 sliced turkey sandwich w/ wheat bread (about 20g protein), 1 granola bar or similar snack
Dinner: good portion of rice plus various meat dishes prepared by mom, ranging from teriyaki chicken to stiry fry...lots of veggies as well
snacks in between meals: usually celery, triscuit cracks, although i try to incorporate tuna

tryin to drink boatloads of water throughout the day too...hwo can i tweak this so that i dont have to make any drastic changes?

Put some Peanut butter and cottage cheese in there. Also try to have some eggwhites or whole eggs

And eat to your hearts content.

That's a very exact height measurement :)

Sounds like all you need to do is eat more.

EDIT: and some more fat content wouldn't go amiss.

Eat more lean protein sources but you need fats and complex carbs in yoru diet.

Personally i like it plain, You can add plenda cinnamon and raisins. Very good like that. you can also put in diced up tomato and a bit of salt. Its really up to whatever floats your boat.
