Trying to gain lean muscle mass
In the past several months I have lost about 25lbs from working out. Even though I feel a lot more energized at my current weight of 160lbs, I would like to gain about 10lbs of muscle. My diet is really good. I have stayed away from all the junk food and concentrated on eating complex carbs such as pastas, rice and fruits. I also eat some quality protein such as chicken breasts, turkey breasts. And I take a protein powder after my workouts. All in all, I end up eating about 1700cal a day, but I workout 7 days a week. What should I be doing to gain 10lbs of muscle, eating more protein and less carbs, or increase more overall intake of calories a day, or should I cut down on how many days I go to the gym?
