So I've been training pretty hard with both cardio and weight training, and eating clean has made a world of difference. I've dropped from mid-170's to a leaner and "bigger" looking 159-161. Now that I've got my body fat down to where I want it, I'm having a hard time building up my muscle. I've been stuck at the same weight for a couple weeks now and it's hard to tell if I'm building muscle at the same rate as I'm losing more fat, or if I'm just not getting results. I feel like I'm just not getting results though (weight-wise anyway, as I am getting stronger). I think I need more calories but I'd like to keep my carb intake where it's at. I eat very few carbs unless it's my post-workout meal. I get roughly 170 grams of protein per day so that should be more than plenty. What's a real good low carb/ high calorie food I can add to my diet? Right now pretty much all I eat is chicken, tuna, deer/elk, vegetables, fruits, eggs, a little bread, and pasta or rice for my carbs. I use about 4 protein shakes with peanut butter and a pre-workout as my supplements. Any advice? Thanks!
