Hey, I’m new to the forum, and was hoping maybe I could get some fresh advice here.
As the title suggests, I used to be a fat-ass. At my heaviest, I was almost 200 lbs. while measuring under 5’-10". About 5 years ago, I decided to change. I started working out and eating healthier. Needless to say, I was a stupid and naive from lack of knowledge and experience. So, I somehow came to the conclusion that I needed to lose weight any way possible. I accomplished this goal over a couple of years, and ended up weighing 150 lbs. Big mistake. At this point, I was stupid, naive, and a skinny bitch.
So, for the last year or so, I’ve been trying to gain weight. I hate being skinny. But, as a FFB, I never want to be fat again. Now, I’m stuck in a mental rut. Every time I lose sight of my six-pack, I panic. So, I’ve been keeping my calorie intake every so slightly above maintenance. Problem is, my gains are slow, and constantly plateau. After a year, I’ve only gained about 13 pounds.
My question is, being a FFB, what route should I take with my diet? Eating BIG and clean? Eating just enough?
