    Gain weight without losing definition

    So im about 5'11 and weight now 170lbs. I would like to get to about 180-190 pounds but without losing my definition. I am currently well defined and do not want to lose; however, i need to pack on some pounds. I would like to know what i can do to reach my goal i workout 3 - 4 days a week with my work schedule. I'm more interested in certain supplements or nutrition ideas. Currently i only take a probolic protein shake after workouts. Should i consume more protein also would be my next question and if so how much?

    Hey Bro

    A quick suggestion, I am on a Keto diet which a lot of bodybuilders use for cutting before a competition. Its a high fat, high protien low carb diet with the idea being you train your body to be a fat burning machine rather than taking fuel from carbs and sugar.

    I am gaining strength whilst losing weight, If you were to do the same diet without being in calorie deficit then you should gain muscle without gaining fat.

    The important thing is you need to fuel your body sufficiently without taking on excess calories, it will take some fine tuning to achieve that.

    If you want to understand what your nutrition should be to achieve your goals then read this as it will teach you everything you need to know. [url]http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121703981[/url]

    If you want to look into my Keto recommendation = Keto Forum [url]http://forum.bodybuilding.com/forumdisplay.php?f=61[/url]
    And also a guide to Ketosis = [url]http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=132598293[/url]

    If you need any extra advice I am sure the guys in this forum will be pleased to help, if you have any further questions about my recommendations then go ahead I am not an expert but I have invested some time learnign about nutrition to help my achieve my goals and will be happy to share what I have learned.

    Oh one last thing, you will achieve your goals by making minor adjustments to whatever advice you follow. So that you understand what adjustments to make and how you are doing you should log all your food intake into myfitnesspal.com also has a smartphone app with a barcode reader to help you keep a record of your diet and make necassary adjustments.

    Knowledge is power bro.

    Good luck

    To be more specific answering your question about how much protein you should be taking, no one can guess you need to make calculations based on the information in the thread I recommended [url]http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=121703981[/url] once you have a base model of nutrition just make the minor adjustments depending on results.
