Hey all!
long time reader 1st time posting. I don't know if i'm posting in the right spot but here we go. I'll get right to the point.....
At the beginning of the year i was 65 kg 6foot 21years old and made the conscious decision to build some muscle.
Now, nearly 4 months through i have gained 10kg currently 75kg but have some unwanted belly fat.

daily diet:
1cup oats
2 ltr full cream milk
decent serving of frozen chips
2 chicken breast or 2 cuts of beef or tuna
bowel of steamed veggies (carrot,sweet potato,broccoli,beans or peas)
and whatever might be cooking ie pasta,salad or stews (1 plate)
after workout always i have 60g of carb supplement and 30g of protien with a banana

i do not have a set routine yet, currently doing...
atleast 2 days a week running. minimum of 8 oval laps low lvl intensity
biceps,triceps and abs(crunches,situps, pushups, benchpress, bicep curls) atleast 3-4 times a week-just workout till failure

getting noticable gains in arms and chest and abs. but this unwated belly fat is getting worse. please, any advice for a beginner?
what i could be doing better?
is my diet ok for gaining muscle?
also, i feel that i should mention i drink 8 beers most nights. trying to quit the beer drinking. could this be contributing to fat gut?

Thankyou for reading.

Agreed. Not training your legs Is NOT the way to go. Train them, read the stickies as advised too

Training Legs will improve your fat burning all round, honestly start training them and you'll see how much stronger you become.

8 beers a night? That, combined with 2L of full cream milk is a TON of calories. Alcohol should be a once a week treat, max and even then only a couple. Also switch to non-fat milk. If you cut out the beer alone, you could lose an extra 2-3lbs a week without changing anything else.
