I have lifted weights off and on for a number of years. 1 year ago I had an operation to remove my colon completely due to Ulcerative colitis. For me this was a completely new beginning.. my weight had gone down to 125 lbs due to my illness.. I am 5'9".. bad right?. Any how After 6 months of recovery time (complications) and about 4 months now of lifting I am close to my target weight of 165lbs. (im at 158lbs. Nutrition has become my major obstacle .. Im sure that I have the cleanest colon in the world..
as it is completely missing... I tell myself that somehow there might be an advantage in this... so far i have only detected that i have less acne... (im 34 and always had moderate to bad acne). anyhow i am aspiring to have the physic of a 150# weight class bodybuilder and would like to know if the 1g protein per # of body weight rule applies if you are already at your desired max weight or close to it.. I would like to think that I can eat normally and grow muscle since Im already at my goal weight.. It is hard for me to eat too much due to my condition.. too much food for me means about 10 trips to the bathroom per day due to my "short" intestinal track...Also my absorbtion is not so good due to No-colon syndrome..
Any advice on how to build a impressive 160# physique for colonless bastards like myself is appreciated... I guess i should sign myself up for some type of weird bodybuilding experiment.. .. right now my max BP is 165# and max squat is 245# .. I think not bad considering last year at this time I weighed 125 pounds and was lying in the hospital split open like a thanksgiving turkey.. anyhow.
