I have to admit, I oscilllate between feeling NO sorrow for some lucky bastard who can chomp his way through six chocolate bars, on top of his daily calorific surplus of 1000, and still bitch and moan, "But I'm not gaining!" while my gut jiggles as I walk the street...
and thanking my lucky stars I'm not one of those poor bastards who finds eating a nightmare, trains like a coked-up Gorilla after 10 cans of Red Bull, and sleeps for 10 hours a night yet is only about 12 stones or so, and stuck there.
But I'll say one thing - the skinny camp have a LOT more help, sympathy etc from the Bodybuilding community at large, as most websites are roid driven/financed, and the guys buying are usually hard gainers. Not nearly as much money to be made selling thermogenics or whatever.
Sorry if this is an old can of worms that I just busted open again, but I'd love to know how my fellow dieters feel about the other extreme.
Same question to hard-gainers about us, too.
