    u need way more protein in your diet. i also noticed u train for a loooong time. i know myself as well as many ppl on this forum only train for at max one hour. whats ur routine like? i also see u dont eat alot in between meals. try to eat smaller at one sitting and eat a snack later on. also drink alot of water. it helps to keep you full some ppl say, but it doesnt do that for me. im doing a lean/clean bulk right now. im eating about 4k cals, 300 g of protein but im doing cardio. and all my cals are from lean foods like chicken, fish and stuff. i go fishing alot so i catch my own fish and eat it. free food lol

    If your macro breakdowns are correct, you dont even eat 2000 cals a day, which is waaaaay low for someone to put on any type of size. And at 6'1, 185, you do need to.

    Eat a lot more, especially protein. And definitely eat in between meals. At this point, try and make it whatever you can with at least a little bit of protein in there. Just get in the habit at first of trying to eat throughout the day, then modify once you are more comfortable doing this.

    Ok, I am around 2000 cals a day so ill make sure I definately eat more in between meals. I have to go to the food store this weekend so im gonna pick up some more cottage cheese for pre bed snack and more milk for the middle of the day. I train so long because on some exercises I take 5 minute breaks before sets if I am worn out and I do cardio for 45 mins

    Don't increase your calories by a ton at once. Just try to add 300 calories a day for 2 weeks and see where you are on the scale. The trick to lean bulking is to do it slowly. But you do need to add more protein to your diet, so i'd try to make the extra calories high protein ones. Adding 2 shakes of whey isolate for 40g of protein each as between meals snacks would pretty well cover both bases.

    if u are trying to bulk, cut the cardio. at least dont do it for 45min. if u eat 2k cals and 45min of cardio, im surprised u arent losing weight to be honest

    That I will do I was just trying to cut a little before so I was doing cardio, but I am going on a cycle soon, so I will be slowly bulking before and during.
