Is there any particular reason you are against gaining weight?
It would help greatly if you would post exactly what your nutrition program is. Include exact times and also include when your workout is. Your nutrient timing could play a big role here.
You should consider gradually adding calories until your strength starts improving again.
The reason is a combination of having slight pseudo gyno (and being afraid of what it looks like at higher weights) and being a little vain in that I like the idea of being the smaller guy who unexpectedly lifts big weights. If I ever get gyno surgery I’m sure my perspective may change but for now strength + possible a little more weight is the goal.
1st morning meal 7:50ishAM)- MGN whey shake in 8oz of 2% milk + slice of sprouted bread + 2 tblspoons almond butter
2nd Meal (during work) 11AM- Metabolic Drive Complete shake (2 scoops instead of 3)
3rd Meal (during work) 3PM- Sardines (20g protein worth according to label) + banana
4th Meal (after work) 5:30-6-> Cottage Cheese (8oz), 1 kiwi, 1 slice sprouted bread, 2 tblspoons peanut butter
5th meal 8PM Pre Gym - 3 whole eggs, 1 serving steel cut oats, few frozen blueberries
Probably get started at gym at around 8:45 after driving and preparing for gym (pre gym dump, foam rolling etc etc). I also usually eat a banana just as im about to start lifting to make sure I don’t start feeling a little hungry at the gym
Right after gym- 8 OZ 2% milk + MGN whey shake
Food I cram in before heading to sleep - 4 OZ greek yogurt, handful of walnuts, 2 more eggs, avocado.
The lack of meat apart from the sardines is because I have to sneak it in… usually in can form since, unless it is during my university semester where I live in a dorm and can eat anything, I live with my parents who are vegetarians
