Im 135lbs. And i workout often but the way i eat is not good enough to gain the weight i want. Do i need a meal plan, protein, or what?

Sounds like you have a high metabolism. Me too. Start your day with some oatmeal and fruit. Try to eat several meals a day instead of three big ones. Smaller portions of course. Dont do the weight gain formulas. Seen to many people mess up thsir bodys with this. Try to use a natural protien powder from a health food store. Sgay away from anything artificial. And for exercise, do core exercises ones that work the whole body. Strong legs, back stomach shoulders. Etc.

I would start by finding out what your daily caloric intake should be. Its fairly easy just go on google and type what is my daily caloric intake. And put in your height weight and age. And you should find out what protein. Carbs and fat u need each day. And take it from there. Good luck

You say you want to gain weight not fat...... Best way to do that is build muscle.... Lift heavy... Balance your protein and carbs intake. Eat more. Keep it clean...

I agree with the eating part cause protein with no carbs equal no gains!. U dont have to lift extremely heavy u can do body weight exercises also mixed it up good luck

If you want to gain weight and build muscle there are two basic ways to do this. Next to the numerous ways of training ofc

Big bulk and a clean bulk.

In both ways you are creating a caloric surplus. In the cleanbulk you will create a smaller surplus and a lower percentage of your energy will come from carbs than in the big bulk.

In the big bulk the building of muscle and gaining of weight will be quicker. The downfall of this method is you will also gain bodyfat. This because of the created surplus in the calories you are taking in.

In the cleanbulk the gains will be slower. But the positive thing about the cleanbulk is that you will gain less bodyfat.

Training on both ways wont be different. If you need more info on how to bulk some bodybuding forums have great info about it!

Yeah you ain't gaining any muscle unless you on a caloric surplus for the day
