comment Is egg white powder a good alternative to whey protein?
Have you also considered other protein sources? Lactose intolerant people are usually able to consume yogurt and cheese. Might the dorm allow a small personal refrigerator? (it should run you about USD 75-100, see if you can get roommates to chip in; everyone likes cold drinks easily available). You can store yogurt, cheese and sliced meats in it, or even boiled eggs (in-the-shell they keep for a week or two; you'd have to buy them boiled). You could also try bean sprouts, soybeans and peanut butter.

comment what is causing knee pain after squats?
I experienced similar symptoms ("more kind of a sensation that occurs during the day") just after starting Stronglifts. Short answer: (possibly) patellofemoral syndrome or runner's knee. This question (not mine) has details: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/3660/… . See your doctor though. Don't self-diagnose.

comment Is this muscle gain?
Put your actual question in the title. So "Have I gained muscle weight?" instead of "I have a question about muscle".

comment How much exercise is “just enough”?
Check out The 4-Hour Body (I just recommended that in another answer). Tim Ferriss is all about getting the most results while doing the least work.

comment What is the best thing to lose belly fat
Is that pounds or kilos? Male or female? Google "body-mass index calculator" to get a rough idea for what a healthy weight for you would be. To get a more precise "healthy weight" number you should talk to your doctor; you may have other conditions that we don't know about/you don't want to talk about on the Internet.

comment How to build muscle strength without exercise?
@halvey "Plenty get strong this way, so what is wrong with me?" If you have "weak genes", like you say, then you won't get strong by just doing what other people do. You'll have to do something different and structured, and a lot more of it. Check out stronglifts.com. It's an easy-to-follow strength-building program

@halvey I'm pretty sure nutritious food (just fruits, veggies, eggs, dairy) is cheaper than steroids or genetic treatment.
