    Great Site and Material. Thanks for all your work!

    I have gained 20-25 pounds in 2 months using your advise as well as some others, and am pretty pleased. But as a working dad with demands on time and money, it is very hard to stick to the programs very closely. So counting calories and grams of carbs or protein even seems beyond what I have time for.

    As a result, while my clothes are tight in all the right areas, they are also a bit tight in my stomach now as well. I never thought I would gain weight period, so having a little bit of a beer belly is pretty strange.

    So my question is, should I continue with what I have been doing (protein shakes, 5-6 meals per day, eating immediately when hungry, working out 2-3 times per week, always letting my muscles fully recover) and keep getting bigger, and then shift to a more fat-burning focused plan once I am happy with my size, or should I shift now?

    In short, will it be too difficult later to shed bad weight and keep the good such that I should bite the bullet now and cut back on my intake? Or should I just keep packing on both and worry about getting more fit once the weather warms up?

    Thanks again for your work!

    Thanks Alian,

    Definition is decent. I think part of my stomach problem is that there is always food in it! If I flex abs, you can see them (just not very cut).

    The other question I have is the order of workouts. Everything I read places emphasis on heavy leg workouts (squats and deadlift) and I have been faithful to that, doing them first, thinking that those lifts release the most testosterone to benefit the upper body lifts later. The problem, especially since upping my sets to 10 reps at your advice, is that it leaves me really drained energy wise. If I work upper body out first, or interleaved, I won’t get as much overall weight lifted with legs. I am trying to pack my workout into a 45 minute session, but maybe I need more time to recover.

    Any thoughts on this?
