I have already gained 5lbs. I have been working out forever and in the last year I have felt worse and worse during workouts. My body was not going anywhere. In fact I think I was shrinking. After talking to a friend and realizing that I was eating about 50 grams of protein on average I took action. I eat about 150 - 190 grams a day and my muscles are noticeably harder. I am starting to feel a little thick in the waist though so I am going to watch my carbs and fats in my meals also. Any advice?
