    I'm having a bit of a problem. I weigh 155. I have a slim athletic body with muscular tone.

    The thing is, I would like to gain just A BIT of weight while keeping my definition. At the weight I am, I'm coming upon my six pack EXTREMELY well. I have the cuts and curves I want. I don't want to lose that while gaining a bit of weight.

    Can anyone tell me how to do that?

    I don't have much of a meal plan. I have 2 protein shakes a day, consisting of 100 grams of protein and around 500 calories total. I also have 2 meals a day: Lunch (usually a subway sandwich or 3 chicken soft tacos) and then dinner: A low fat hamburger with baked chips or some kind of sandwich...I work out 4 times a week 1 1/2 hours a day. I also run a mile each day.

    Can anyone help with a meal plan low in fat, that will help me maintain my physic, but also build bigger muscles?

    Work out the parts of the body where you want to gain, and let the body do the rest.

    I think you'll have to take in some more cals and hit the weights a bit harder
    You want mass you're gonna have to get heavier with the weights and to do that you'll need more fuel for the body

    That's a whole lot of protein for someone of your size. By my guess, you are consuming almost 300 grams of protein a day. That's way too much in my opinion. You have the right idea, by getting high protein, but your frame and muscle will need a more balanced carb/fat/protein approach. If you are looking for size you need to workout hard enough to put those calories and all that protein to good used. You really just need about 1gr of protein per pound of body weight to gain. You may want to find a lower protein shake that has some other vitamins, amino acids, etc. This will fill your muscles with other things they need.
