Hello everyone, been lurking around T-Nation since I started taking working out seriously and finally broke down and signed up to post. First and foremost, thank god for this site, articles are great! Now, I have been lifting seriously for 6 Months. Lol, yeah pretty much a newbie, have always been fit, played soccer all my life and worked construction since I can remember.
I started in June weighing 23 YO / 5'9" 147lb and I am up to 165lb now. Very happy with my gains/strength increase. The gains look pretty lean, I still have a six pack, muscles are nice and defined. My question is.. with the following diet, is that going to continue or am I going to start looking sloppy. Anybody have an idea on making some adjustments make slower/leaner gains ??

This is exactly what I ate yesterday, I make changes daily, instead of the Tuna, I'll have a bag of Beef Jerky, or instead of the Chicken, I'll have a homemade double patty turkey burger on wheat.
Thank you in advance!
