Fuel that workout, son! Are you including dense sources of starchy carbohydrates in your meals? Sweet potatoes, cassava, true yams, potatoes, squashes of all kinds, taro - eat it up!

No. As long as you consume adequate protein, no muscle loss will occur. Many, in fact, gain muscle with no added exercise. Gluconeogenesis will supply all the glucose you will ever need. That's why carbs are considered nonessential nutrients.... (more)

Dry roasted hazelnuts are 15% protein, dried black walnuts are 24% protein. That's about as high protein as vegetables get unless you use protein isolates or eat legumes.

The kids from Whole9 say a serving of eggs is however many you can fit in your hand. I'm about your size and can easily hold four. Of course, that's if you are using eggs as your main protein source like in the meal you described. (more)

I wouldn't consider 1.25 grams of protein/ lb a high protein diet. If you're looking to gain weight you're probably going to have to introduce more than 40-80 grams of carbs/day though.
