    Another great point. Recovery is just as important if you want to see gains. So many people miss this part, thinking they can get by with a few hours. Let those muscles rest and your body do it's thing.

    I am 52 and lift 6 days a week. 175lbs and 10%bf. I don't take any other supplements besides a pre workout and BCAA during my workout. 2000 cal a day diet split in to 5 meals. Carbs are first thing in the morning and pre workout and post workout only. I get 250 grams of protein a day from chicken, turkey or fish. No protein shakes.
    I used to drink protein shakes and take creatine and was always just rounded. No definition.

    First thing you need to do is track everything you eat. I mean everything. Then look at you macros. I am sure you will be surprised what you are actually eating that contains carbs. Carbs are good but in moderation, especially as you get older. I can do this strict diet for 4 weeks and cut down then I can be a little more relaxed and enjoy some eating out and eating bad stuff. Still in moderation.
