    Posting your actual macro intake is a start. You gave out only vague meals and not the actual measurements.

    Also, stop using your metabolism as an excuse for not gaining. I started at 145 when I was 18 and was near 210 by the time I was 20. How I did it is simple: I busted my ass in the gym and progressively increased to consuming 6000 calories a day.

    It has been said several times by several people in this thread - you need to increase your caloric intake. That is by far the biggest part of gaining mass.

    For example, this is my current recomp diet:

    Meal 1: 4 eggs (2 whole, 2 whites), 4 oz ground meat, 1 oz cheese, 2 Tbsp salsa, 10 oz red potatoes, 1 Tbsp EVOO (all mixed in a bowl together) and 1 serving fruit
    Meal 2: 45g MC, 5g fish oil
    Meal 3: 8-10oz chicken, 2 servings green bean (sometimes, it's also with 4 oz dry pasta and sauce)
    Meal 4: 15g BCAA, 60g WMS, 25g SuperCarb
    Meal 5: 8-10oz chicken, 1/2 large avocado
    Meal 6: 45g MC, 5g fish oil
    Meal 7: 4-6 eggs

    During the weekends, I add in at least another 1000 kcals than this to refuel my body for my weeks training.

    What it looks like to me is that you are trying to look like you do in your avi picture and still "bulk".

    Those two will cause a major conflict so in actuality you probably realize you would rather have a ripped midsection and are now looking for a miracle like Rodja said.

    It sounds promissing..
    Vince was the king of natural bodybuilding. Many of his techniques have been lost due to the advent of steroids and PH's. Vince trained virtually all of the presteroid champs. His methods are legendary. His "up the rack, down the rack" system will add size to your arms in a matter of weeks. If done correctly Itís brutal.

    Agreed...more food. If you want bulk quickly, you have to provide a surplus of calories for the muscles. It's harder (and slower) to quickly gain mass while staying lean. Sacrifice one for the other temporarily.
