I wouldn't recommend 500 grams of protein. That's a bit overkill unless you're training enhanced and on a big cycle.

Calories are the hidden factor in this equation. Many guys can't gain strength on calorie deficits, so if you are adding strength I assume you are eating plenty. How you train matters as well. Maybe you're only training the big 3 lifts, and are a beginner who is experiencing a big strength gain.

But if you're a normal intermediate who is adding strength, I'm guessing you're eating plenty of calories, training wisely, so I would guess you're gaining muscle and some minor fat.
