  1. Skinny guy started working out


    My first post. Always getting good info so I decided to say thanks. I started working out seriously in January and without all the great info and great people here on AM, I probably wouldn't be where I am now. Anyways, here I am now. I know my diet sucks and I'm working on it and I'll take some pics of my walking sticks later. Please let me know what I could be doing better. Thanks!!

    Edit: In January I weighed 148 and now I weigh 160...no idea about bf because I don't really think I need to worry about that right now.

  2. Progress looks great! You're definitely doing something right I know you said your diet is weak, if you post up what it looks like we can give you some suggestions/tips.

    Everybody has a few favourite healthy snack foods that can let you get in those extra cals in addition to nutrients! For me it's my meatloaf-on-the-go

    12 lbs in 4-5 months might be partly beginner gains (i.e. when you just straight a workout program) but with focus you can keep adding those pounds on no problem!

  7. what did you use for sups if you did use any?
  8. Diet


    Like I said before, my diet ain't so good. In the morning I try to drink a shake consisting of 2 cups of nonfat milk, 2 scoops on ON whey protein, 2 cups (80 grams) oats, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of honey. I also drink that before I go to bed. Post workout I drink a protein shake with 2 scoops. The rest of the day I don't eat a lot because I don't have an appetite. I tried the Blackhole pills but they didn't seem to work. Any suggestions??

  9. just eat anyways. Dont eat kuz your hungry eat bekuz its feeding time! i 4got who said that but its a good one though.
  10. Supps


    I bought the bulk CEE, AEE, and citruline malate from Nutraplanet and I was making my own pills but I stopped after about a month. I was megadosing fish oil but now I only take about 4 or 5g a day and a multi-vitamin. I know a lot of you hate it but I also drink n.o.explode pre-workout...it seems to help in the energy dept. That's about it...besides the protein post workout.

  11. dont over kill fish oil. nothing wrong with no explode. i used to use it but i didnt like the way it sat in my stomach. Have you tried just using a weight gainer? instead of regular shakes. maybe that could increase the amount of calories you get in a day.

  12. I was going to get some weight gainer but I am trying to force myself to eat "real" food. Obviously I need to try harder!!

  13. well like i said dont eat kuz ur hungry eat kuz its feeding TIME!! but try to get your diet down first. if you need help just let us know.

  14. i think you when you run out of your no explode you should look into Ragnarok by MST, ive used both and i love the rag! its also cheaper than no explode!

    Agreed! I'm fairly new in this whole relam also... Now that I have my diet all tuned in, damn, it is hard to eat it all! Lunch and dinner suck the worst, but, it's just eating! Small bit of punishment to go through, to yeild great results!

    I'm in a bulk, and I go with whole milk, and the pb, and 1 cup oats 2 scoop protien, and it's like 1000 calories, f'ing aswome!

    i think hes refering to the OP

  23. The shake I have been drinking is just about the same as you guys have suggested except I use 2 cups (80g) of oats instead of one and I also you 2 TBS of honey. As for the oral...I only get that one from the wife I read here that I should wait for a year or 2 before I go the PS route. I would try the Rag but I just ordered RPM so I'm going to give that a try first. I'm an entrepreneur (read: unemployed) so I have to take it easy on buying supps for now....

    Reading this made me feel very uncomfortable.

  25. your hairline seems to have receded a bit from before to after. and your results are astounding for not having a diet that would normally facilitate such progress.

    but great job nonetheless. keep at it, and show us pictures a few months from now.
