    Hi!

    I've read about you and you have inspired me to do something about my body... Only my problem isn't weighing to much, it's weighing to little.
    I just turned seventeen, I'm 173 centimeters tall and weigh 52 kilos.
    I eat pretty normal I think, it's just that I burn fat like a mofo :D

    So what should I do? I have access to a fully equipped gym so that's no problem...

    All I want is to gain a few kilos and perhaps get some muscles as well :)

    Please, someones got to help me.....

    Thanks!

    A friend of mine has been drinking some kind of a protein-shake. Ever try those? Of course, combined with weight-lifting.

    Most of these "healthy" alternatives to those sugar laden weight gain shakes, are made up of a Protein Blend (protein customizer), ground oats, and flax oil (or other healthy fat).

    But gaining lean mass just means taking in a couple hundred more calories than your body expends throughout the day. Coupled with lifting, you force ur body to add mass in the form of muscle.

    If you're a "hard-gainer" and aren't worried about a little fat, your best bet is to up the calories and adjust your workouts. When I've bulked, I would get about 4000 calories/day along with double my bodyweight in protein. (2 grams per pound) It's hard to get that much in with a 100% clean diet, but do your best. And try to get as much of it from real food as possible. I tried not to get more than 25% from protein suppliments.

    Try to keep the carbs as clean as possible. I try to get most of mine from wheat breads and wheat pasta. You will put a little fat on, but it's something you can always burn off later.

    Jonesy,

    Im a hard gainer, and while not a total 'noob' or whatever you call it, i do have some trouble with my diet due to being at college, what would you suggest can i ask for a sample diet plan?

    oh also how much protein should you have per meal i heard 30-50, anymore and well its straight out again:)

    And carbs is about 50g i read, but that seemed a lot

    cheers mate
