If you cant gain weight while youre nowhere near your natural potential what do you think will happen when you come off the cycle and return to your present habits?
Yes. Your body will revert right back to where it was. There is no point to use steroids if you dont know how to gain weight naturally. My advice would be different if you were 5'10 240 8%. But youre not. You just need to eat more.
What is the XXg number? Grams of what? Is it protein? What kind of soup are you eating that has 16g of protein in it?
Maybe you arent aware but FAT is also a macronutrient. 8oz of beef doesnt provide nearly enough dietary fat.
Basically your diet is 100% to blame.
I'll be nice and lay out a simple little template.
8oz whole milk
1/2 cup ground/powdered oats
3 whole eggs
table spoon of peanut butter
frozen berries, a handfull will do
table spoon of olive oil
60g whey protein
add ice and blend. add water or more milk if its too thick
6-8oz of meat
8-10oz potato or rice
small salad or some veggies with olive oil drizzled on top
with a piece of fruit
meal 4 pre workout
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1 scoop whey
2 scoops gatorade powder
vegetables avacado/tomato salad with olive oil
1 scoop casein + tbs olive oil shake
Start eating like a man and ditch the phantom calories you claim to be eating.
And when youre on the go have a bag full of almonds/walnuts/dried fruit and a Kashi bar or some fruit.
