You may not be eating enough protein. When your goal is to gain more lean muscle and build strength, you definitely need to be consuming more protein – especially at every meal. You will want to be combining the protein with healthy carbs and fats.
My go to proteins are:
Eggs/Egg Whites, Chicken Breast, Salmon, and Vega Protein Powder.
I use a food scale. Yes, it is an added step, however, having the exact amounts of food be weight will show on your scale and overall body composition. You will be pleased you added this step!
