OK, so you're kind of seeing the results of an "experiment" on yourself here! First you increased mass by increasing energy intake, and now you've seen it come down as a result of increasing energy output. So yes, the two are linked, they're opposite sides of a "scale" and if you're staying weight stable, it's because the two are equal. If you want to train and maintain weight, then you need to increase energy intake to match the new balance, on the other side.
Having said that, you're already supplementing (stick with Ensure - better and safer than the somewhat dodgy proteins), and so it seems you have a problem most people wish they had - that of losing weight! I think the best thing you can do is see a dietician. The nuances here will be the timing of meals, frequency per day, and then obviously what you eat, because you need to find ways to keep up with what must be a pretty fiery metabolism!
So that's what I'd suggest. In terms of training, you might want to lift slightly heavier, increase the muscle mass focus a little more.
