Maybe your fat friends eat more when they aren't in the company of a T-man who's in much better shape than they are? You also work out hard and actually "need" the calories I'm assuming?
Give me a free pizza and I will eat 3 slices, no more than 4, and put the rest in the fridge. My fat friends eat the whole thing in one sitting. I believe I have an ectomorphic mind and they have an endomorphic mind. I don't believe these terms should be used for bodytypes bc people will just shrug and say it's genetics and not try to change their mindset. Absorption issues and how they relate to gaining muscle are something I would like to look into though.
I started working out last year and trying to gain weight. I went from eating 2500 calories a day and feeling stuffed to 3500 - 4000 a day and feeling stuffed. Gained 27 lbs. but I've been stuck at my current bodyweight for over a month.
Where are all those extra calories going? I don't have enough muscle that I think they're being used for maintenance and I do no cardio other than play "hide the salami" so I'm thinking I might have absorption issues? If I worked hard enough to get up to 190 pounds and mostly muscle, I can't imagine how much food I'd have to eat all day long just to maintain it.
