    - 167lbs/75kg
    - 5 foot 11
    - "Lean" guessing around 13-15%bf (visible abs and obliques)

    Macros:
    - 3000~ Calories
    - 190~ Protein
    - 380~ Carbs
    - 75~ Sugar
    - 75~ Fat

    Eat more then. Although personally I see no need for a 17 year old to actually count calories. Just eat mainly nutrition food sources as you are and add 'empty' calories to ensure weight gain.

    If you aren't gaining weight, and you want to be gaining weight, then you need to eat more.

    So throw a couple PB&J sandwiches into your daily diet. You are young and have a license to EAT, so take advantage of it.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Fast metabolism of peace
    See the curtains hangin' in the window, in the evenin' on a Friday night
    A little light a-shinin' through the window, lets me know everything is alright
    Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind

    Not gaining weight = not eating enough.
    BTW what has happened is normal for a beginner: lifting forced your body to put on some muscle mass and in the meantime you have lost fat in a higher amount, hence the net weight loss.
