At your height and weight, I'm sure you won't have to worry about a "belly" for quite some time.

Are you actually tracking all of this? Are you using www.fitday.com? You need to know the calories you're consuming. Also, low fat is not healthy, despite popular media lies. You should be consuming .5 grams of fat per pound of LBM. Most of this should be Essential Fatty Acids (healthy fats - avocados, natural peanut butter, fish oil, tuna, nuts/seeds, etc...)

You should be getting at least 1 gram of protein per pound of LBM. The rest of your calories can come from fat, protein, or carbs...whatever you want...depending on your level of comfort and satiety purposes.

Now...judging from your daily diet...I'd say you're not eating enough..AT ALL. It took you almost a year to gain 10 pounds if that's all you're eating, I can see why. You need to be eating a lot more. Sign up for a free account at www.fitday.com and track your average calories for a week. Then come back here so we can evaluate your diet.

How is your training routine? (days you go, exercises you do for each day, and the sets/reps for each)

Give us as much information as possible. Good luck!

I agree with Scarz. You dont seem to be eating enough. Every meal should have protein. You also dont seem to be intaking any fat. Dietary Fat DOESN'T make you fat. Check out the links he linked and you should be on your way.

Looks good, how fast are you gaining? (ie lbs per week)

03-20-2007, 06:51 AM
I just upped the calories last week. Judging from that I was probably about 400-500 less from before. SO I guess we'll see.

Should I maintain the same amount of calories on rest days, or cut back on those days?

03-20-2007, 10:24 PM
I keep the cals the same on all days.
