Right now, it appears that you are eating healthy, lower calories foods, and due to this even with your large intake you still come out even. While its very reasonable to put on weight with the amount of cardio you are doing, right now your diet is preventing any gains. Keeping a log can be a ...

What are you eating after you long/hard workouts? It's really important to replace the glycogen that you burned; if you do not, your body will tear down your muscle to help build back your glycogen stores.

The problem you are running into is one of context. The answer to the problem depends on what's causing the progress to stall. Neither answer is inherently wrong, nor is either answer more correct.

What does your diet look like? How much are you eating? Weight loss is 90% diet, 10% exercise. You can exercise all day long but if you eat those calories back it's for naught. If you're not tracking your calories, do that. Keep track of everything you eat, everything you drink. And be careful about portion sizes. I also highly recommend weighing your food, ...

I eat breakfast at home, then I pack my bread meals for the rest of the day (about 500 grams of whole grain bread bread). Then at home I cook dinner. Today I had 300 grams (uncooked) of brown rice with 500 grams of vegetables baked in 60 grams of olive oil with some meat. And I'm ...

Lets examine your argument: if you want a good muscles, then you need a good supply (it's an pretty obvious truth) Pretty obvious yes, if you want to be healthy, you need to eat well. so to gain mass it is probably good to eat six or even more times a day Well, those two statements are completely unrelated.

It's really a case of an individuals schedule. I pack myself plastic containers each night filled with my food (e.g. grilled chicken/ rice). It really doesn't take that long, around 45 minutes to be packed. And in the morning I just pack it and leave, I can easily find a microwave at work. In your case, your time may be even further contained and I would ...
