I'm 5'9" 180lbs and my BF is 14.8% (29 years old). I'm trying to get my weight to around 185. My goal is to get my BF down to 13.5-14%. What could I do to help get my weight up 5 lbs without gaining anymore fat? I'm currently taking 3 protein shakes (1000 all natural calories). My other 3 meals are usually around 500 calories. Any ideas are appreciated. Thank you

What you want to do is going to require a good amount of consistency with diet and training.
So I'm assuming that I'm going to need to increase my calorie intake and clean up my diet to drop the body fat? I feel like I don't really eat bad but for some reason I'm at 14.8 BF.

^--How consistent? Are you counting calories?

Measuring BF is not very accurate anyway and can be skewed each time you do it. Also bodyweight is just a number as well. Say you get to 185 and haven't leaned out are you going to change thigs yet again? This is where people start yo yo dieting and thats not a good thing. I'm not trying to put you down by any means I just want you to realize there is no magical bodyweight where you may look your best. Everyone carries their bodyfat differently and the more muscle you carry the leaner you look even at a higher bodyfat percentage.
Stick to a well balanced nutrition plan with mostly good whole foods and train hard with consistency and results will come. Don't become too fixated on numbers.
