Cool Need to gain weight (muscle) after losing 60 lbs. NEED YOUR SUGGESTIONS

Hi All,

I am 6'1 tall and weight 160 LBS.

I am working out 4-5 times a week. Only weight lifting right now. No cardio at all.

I need to gain some weight. But my problem is a little different here.
I was 220lbs about a year ago and lost almost 60 lbs over the time.
As you can see, gaining weight is not an issue for me at all

But I want to gain quality weight. by saying that, i want to gain muscle.

last 2-3 weeks, i changed my diet and i am having around 2700 calories a day.
Although i gained 2-3 lbs during that time, i just noticed that my body fat increased from %12.5 to %14.0.

by other words, instead of muscle, i put on body fat.

i work with a personal trainer twice a month. i believe my exercices are good enough for me to gain muscle.

I eat quality food, nothing fried or junk food etc. i also take protein shakes every day. (38 gr a day)

So what i am doing wrong here??? What i need to do to gain that muscle?

I need your suggestions and want to hear your experiences in this matter..
