    that is the exact same thing as saying 1kg of feathers weighs more than 1kg of rocks

    also, to the rest of the people in this tread who seems to think weight is some magical genetic feature, its not. you cant eat "whatever you want and still not gain weight", if youre doing that, you dont eat more than you require. simple as pie.

    It all boils down to how many calories you're eating. If you're working out hard and want to gain weight you need to be eating AT LEAST 3000 calories per day, however, be sure to eat a ton of protein, and eat every 3-4 hours. So in your case eat around 750 calories every 3-4 hours.

    i didn't read the thread, but i have an answer to the question. drink only caloric liquids. milkshakes, sodas, sports drinks, whatever. if you eat lots and aren't gaining weight, stop drinking water and drink stuff that is chock full of calories.

No weight room access at the moment.
    Holy crap son, i'm pretty much no fat, and i'm a good 7 inches shorter and only 10 pounds less lol. Eat more, Lots and Lots of protein. I'd suggest honestly in excess of 3000+ calories a day if youre seriously lifting. A weight room is crucial to gaining muscle. But if you want to gain just pure fat fill up on as much junk crap as you want and gorge yourself everyday, you will gain weight easily. If you want to gain muscle which is a lot heavier in terms of actual poundage, eat a lot of protein constantly. You will gain weight.

    You're better off growing up and learning how to be happy with who you are and thankful for your health instead of trying to "get big" or "come up a little".

    There are different body types and different genes and limits to how buff you can get and look without taking drugs and risking your health.

    As an example,Bruce Lee. He had more determination than any man alive. Worked his body to death, got as ripped as he could and was a paragon to other Martial Artists. But he would never ever get as big as a Pure bred Scandinavian. But he was still an amazing person and Inspiration and did great things in his life.

    Having the biggest muscles in the world will never get as many chicks as wearing skinny jeans and telling them you are in a band.

    Also, what's wrong with pursuing a goal to better yourself?
    Too fat to be a bodybuilder..
    Too weak to be a powerlifter..

    No, it's not.
    There's a reason things like candy and chips are considered bad.
    1500kcal of chips (about 300g) consists of near no protein, about 75% carbs and bad fats
    Your body does not need any of this.

    1500kcal of meat is near zero carbs, lots of proteins and fats that is good for you. The body only needs/wants about 1,5g of carbs per kilo bodyweight per day

    So yeah, 1500kcal of candy "weighs more" than 1500kcal of meat, for several reasons.
    Energy level is the same, difference is how those will effect your metabolism

    I see your point but there's no harm in trying to gain a little weight when he obviously weighs a lot less than the average person. I'm in the same boat as the OP, and i'm mainly doing this for myself to gain some selfconfidence and what not. I don't see any bad in trying to move away from superskinny to looking healthy.

    Don't listen to any of these kids because they are all prolly out of shape fat fucks that just read stupid magazine tutorials that don't even work. Carb stack, eat 6 meals, have a pre and post workout shake, avoid low intensity cardio, avoid low weight/high reps, low reps high weight is optimal, don't follow a diet plan since that is what works for "others" not yourself, its going to basically test/fail and see what "YOU" respond to.

    I call troll because I think you are mocking the fat people who play 'wow'.

    Anyway if it is real, you sound freakishly thin for your size, I am 6ft 3 and weigh 180 pounds, I really don't know where I could lose another 40 pounds lol

    Eat more... and don't stick your fingers down your throat afterwards.

    Wrong to lose weight you stop eating... it's science..

    I understand the whole "if you dont eat you get hungry and then eat massive amounts because you hungry" scenario

    I understand the whole "if i eat small steady meals throughout the day and make sure i am never hungry" scenario

    I understand them both but the logical solution is to stop eating and you WILL lose weight.. When you have losed the weight you go back to your normal NEW healthy eating pattern

    You don't have to eat so many times but rather eat much everytime you do eat. Well... I guess snacks like yogurt works too.

    The initial period of training is the first 3 months. During these months you will get stronger but you will not gain much muscle. During this time your nerves are learning to coordinate your muscles, and your nerves are activating parts of your muscles that you didn't have access to before, which makes you stronger without actually needing bigger muscles.

    After that
    Make sure you are doing enough reps to be bodybuilding, and not strenght training or endurance. If you do for example 6 reps with high weights, you won't be gaining much muscle, your nerves will be focused on activating more parts of your muscle which makes you stronger, but it doesn't build much muscle. And you don't want to do too many reps either because then you move into muscle-endurance which is about how you deal with oxygen intake and oxygen deposits in your muscles. So make sure you are following a body building program, and not a strength or endurance program.

    Super-compensation
    Is what makes your muscles grow stronger. Every time you challenge your muscles to a certain max, your body will break down the muscle and build it up stronger. This means that it takes quite a long time to build muscle, since there is a process you have to go through with hitting a new plateau every time.

    If you make sure you are doing these things correctly, and you wait for a few months, if you are still not gaining, you have to up your protein in-take most likely.
