    Trouble gaining mass

    My first post....anyways

    I've been going to the gym a whole lot for the past month or so and I've been doing my best eating right also trying to eat foods with high protein and low fat. But I've been losing all the weight I gain. I feel like I'm getting stronger and I can see myself getting more defined but nothing is really working. Are there any workouts that can help me build mass quicker then any others?

    You heard the man. Try counting your calories, I suggest MyFitnessPal for this as it's free and easy to use. Eat 500 surplus for a while and see how it goes!

    Gaining muscle is a long slow process anyway. Apparently even if you are eating and training perfectly, you will gain less than a pound of muscle a week and in real life it's not realistic for many people to have a perfect diet, training routine and amount of sleep, so don't expect to get big quick. Give it at least a couple of years of consistent lifting and eating a lot and you'll see some results, but don't expect anything to really change in a month.

    Wow, a whole month?
    and I've been doing my best eating right
    I doubt you know what is right.
    also trying to eat foods with high protein and low fat.
    Low fat, eh? Thanks for making it known you don't know what is right.
    But I've been losing all the weight I gain.
    Then you aren't eating enough total calories.
    I feel like I'm getting stronger
    You could be. Much of strength gain is neurological.
    and I can see myself getting more defined
    You probably are. If you are losing weight, that means you are in a caloric deficit. If you're in a caloric deficit and lifting, you'll most likely lose excess fat.
    but nothing is really working.
    Not working in what way? Gaining weight? Eat more.
    Are there any workouts that can help me build mass quicker then any others?
    No. Eat more.

    I love it when people come in and ask questions bout gaining weight or losing it and day they are eating good and nothing is working... Then you find out, they don't count calories, east too little fat throughout the day, and only been working out for a month. Here is your solution. You are actually not eating what you think, eating not enough calories, not enough fat (I assume since you said low fat), all toy have to do is east and lift heavy, it's not that hard. If you are not gaining weight, then you are not eating enough

    You could gain 5 lbs of muscle, and lose 5 lbs of fat
    The scale will say nothing happened

    As long as you're gaining strength, you're gaining mass

    We are around the same height

    I eat around 200g Protein and drink about 50g
    150 Carbs and 30-40 fat

    Keep your workouts short and High intensity. Go Heavy with good form, I stick to 6-8 rep range.
    Also look in to Pre exhaustion training, I found it works for me. Good luck bro.

    1) Eat more

    2) Only a month? How quickly do you think it happens? Strength gains in the first 6-8 weeks are purely neurological. Hypertrophy won't kick in until about this period...
