    As stated, sometimes the most simple answer is the correct one. Increase them calories

    Well, let’s start at the top...

    “Macros” aren’t a number of calories, they are the fat, carbohydrates, and protien that comprise your food. So the question is, what’s your TDEE? If you are eating above your TDEE, You WILL gain weight (wether it’s muscle or fat is a different story).

    175 grams of protien is probably more than you “need”, but not obscene, so it’s a nitpick.

    You aren’t 15% bodyfat, or the 11% listed on your body space. From the limited pics I would put you more at around 17-18%, with modest muscle (not an insult). But, unless preparing for a contest, who gives a crap about BF%? It’s what you look like in the mirror.

    I assume a p/p/l for your workout? How long have you been at it? I’m guessing a few months? You should really be on one of the proven beginners programs, like Fierce 5 as a beginner. This is designed to teach you proper execution of core excercises, teach you how to program progressive resistance, and build a foundation of size and strength.

    “Metabolism” doesn’t really have anything to do with it. If you burn more calories, your TDEE is just higher...so, back to the point above, eat more than your TDEE, and you will gain some kind of weight. If you are staying the same, your consumption is still at maintenence.

    Good luck.
