I’m 5"1 and 110lb (female).
I’ve been training for about 4 months and i’ve always had a pretty good diet, I follow nutrition guidelines I read on many bodybuilding websites.
The problem is that I have always struggled to eat “enough” and most days I only manage about 1200 calories. This is due to the fact that I get very full very easily.
I have started buying whey protein in order to add a couple hundred more calories and the protein that my low calorie diet doesn’t provide.
Anyway, will this make it harder for me to gain muscle definition (not so much trying to gain mass at the moment) and am i going to have to add more calories?
Or will suddenly adding more calories make me gain fat?
Edit: One more thing, when I don’t have money for the gym I spend some days doing weights at home. The problem is my weights are limited and the weights I can add are either too light or way too heavy. Is it bad for muscles/cause injury to have an unevan load on barbells? (eg 3kg one one side and 4kg on the other)
