Hi, I’m not sure if this is the right subforum to post on, and if its not i apologize. Anyways:
I started lifting about 2 years ago weighing as little as 45 kg (100 pounds) at 180 cm (5’10) its unbeliaveable little, and anorexic. It was due to several reasons: I smoked marihuana and cigarettes alot which supressed my appetite more that normal. i generally didnt have a strong appetite without the pot either though. My tastebuds are not as sensitive as normal, and food doesnt taste as good to me. (No idea why this is).
One day I looked at a video of myself, and was disgusted at how skinny and fragile i looked. So I decided to change.
I stopped the pot, i stopped smoking cigarettes, forced myself to eat, and started working out.
Currently at 75 kg (165 lbs). No idea how much of that is FAT, but I know its alot. Still thats 65 lbs in 2 years.
The thing is, during those 2 years, I have not worked out consistently more then 2 months, with several weeks of break (life, and poor priorities/choices) I have not focused on progressive overload, and my diet has been ****. I have basically just eaten everything, junk and all. Just to get those calories in.
WHAT my question is, does my body still have greater potential allthough I have been working out for 2 years and gained 65 lbs? If i were to eat properly, and workout more intelligently, could I still take advantage of the «newbie gains» ?
